Elizabeth and James s/s 2012


If you ask me, I'll never understand the hype over the Olsen twins. But, I do appreciate their great sense of style and fashion. Elizabeth and James is the affordable sister brand to their designer line, The Row. I love the cheerful colour palette for s/s 2012, including white, fuchsia, pale pink and black. It's a vibrant but at the same time very laid- back and easy breezy collection for women exploring the urban jungle.

face.


"What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? Inside? Behind? And the rest? Doesn't everyone look at himself in his own particular way? Deformations simply do not exist."

Paris Underwater.

Chanel, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen- three different brands, but one inspiration for Spring/ Summer 2012- the sea. The Chanel show was probably the strongest interpretation of the underwater world. Master Kaizer Karl, transformed the Grand Palais in Paris into a space of lightness and freshness with shells, corals and sea horses and Florence and The Machine performed "What The Water Gave Me" from a giant mock shell.
What a harmonious work of art?!

Givenchy translated the undersea theme in a more subtle way. Riccardo Tsci presented the trend not in prints but in tailoring. Sharktooth necklaces, ruffles and the use of fish and eel skins created the impression of underwater warriors. Tisci's interpretation was a "mermaid meets surfer" love affair.


Sarah Burton's vision of oceanic life is a more couturesque one. The collection is a magical eye candy- all the details, fabrics and the craftsmanship are breathtaking. I won't discuss the wearability of this collection, because it's art. The aquatic theme continuous in the McQueen house, by taking another direction, since Lee's last show "Plato’s Atlantis" Spring 2010.
