Marchesa Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5

Another day in New York, and another slew of collections showing loyal fashion followers what the upcoming Fall 2014 season is going to look like. The day wasn’t quite as exciting as I had hoped, but there were still some shows that really sparked my interest.

To begin my dissection of February 12th, let’s start with Marchesa.

Rodarte Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, sadly my blogging skills have not been (thanks to academic endeavours), so I’ve got some catching up to do.Over the past few days the cat walks of the Big Apple have really got my fashion spidey senses tingling.

Rodarte has long been one of my very favourite labels. Kate and Laura Mulleavy are true artists and I’ve always applauded them for being so bold in their inspiration. For Fall 2014, the Mulleavy sisters definitely delivered. It felt like their older collections, when things were quirky and in a way “arts and craftsy” (I mean this as a compliment, as they do it so well). Other than a few of the smocked dresses, and the drawstring high-waisted pants, I’m a huge fan of the collection.

One of my all time favourite t.v. shows has to be My-So-Called Life. At the time the show was originally aired I was 6 years old and not quite of the Angela Chase era. However, in high school the Family Channel aired re-runs late at night, and I instantly became hooked. There are countless reasons why I enjoyed the show, many of which having to do with Jared Leto’s character, Jordan Catalano (Jordan Catalano’s choker, Jordan Catalano’s hair, Jordan Catalano’s wall-leaning skills, Jordan Catalano’s dyslexia…), but also the cast’s wardrobe was pretty rad.

Claire Danes skulked around in loose fitted, burgundy babydoll tees, with plaid shirts tied around the waist, and her bestie, Rayanne Graff, was always sporting interesting getups that involved denim, daisies, macramé, and braids. The show acted as a time capsule of the 90’s, and with it the Seattle sound sub-genre.  Continue reading

Navy Seal of Approval

Since the age of 4, when a slick pair of strirrup pants were handed down to me, I’ve had a love for leather (or leather like) garments. These particular pantaloons were definitely not leather, and more of a shiny raincoat material, but still I was infatuated. In fact, upon further reflection it is possible I dreamt these pants up, but I have a distinct recollection of shedding tears over a coordinated black outfit, with hot pink roses, and a shiny, unknown material. Clearly a child of high-brow taste was I. Continue reading
