ESTEBAN CORTAZAR FW17 WOMENS

My gut tells me that me and Esteban collide one in a blue moon. Taste I mean. That blue moon has arrived this season. Besides hoping the first piece is not real fur, I dig the clash all over here. The piece in white is a surprise, a respite from the rest of the collection which is a goulash of patterns and fabrics. Enjoyable though with the whimsical cuttings to the sportswear an extra plus!

EDELINE LEE FW17 WOMENS

Hannah Höch is a Dada artist. Hannah Höch’s creations had a strong influence on this collection from Edeline Lee. Edeline Lee is based in London, and I want to bet the smart money she is Korean. As true to a Dada artist some pieces are rather wild and whimsical here. I like how Edeline has paired it down to a cohesive statement and these three pieces do it best! We look forward to more.

DRIES VAN NOTEN FW17 WOMENS

Dries’ 100th show! The gent ran through a retrospective of his work over the years bringing out an army of prints, dressed on favorite girls of the last 20 years. Timeless as ever, the only thing that didn’t sit well were the fur pieces. The print clashes, colors, and shiny fabrics still pack the punch of a master. Carry on Mr. Dries Van Noten!

CHRISTOPHER KANE FW17 WOMENS

Christopher Kane needs to return to the source. This brand building ain’t working for me, and his talent has been hanging by a thread for a while. The money infusion, I am sure, put him on firm footing, but has caused the design innovation to tank south. I remember when this guy was the promise like Jonathan Anderson. What up G? These metallic pieces are Digable Planets though. Let’s go!

CHRISTIAN DIOR FW17 WOMENS

Work wear, denim made appearances on the runway for Christian Dior this fall, and everything was blue. A beautiful collection regardless after a rocky start, excuse me the Pre-Fall I think was also goodto. Some amazing dresses here as well, but Maria Grazia Chiuri is trying to speak to the youts now. I thought there was a young Dior? Ms. Dior? Hazy today. I do like things like the first outfit which looks very chic and Pret-A-Porter. Of importance Maria still keeps the dresses ultra-feminine and beautiful to appreciate. The engine is revving…

Celine continues its freshness. Phoebe Philo continues to cement her status as one of fashion’s fly rhyme inventors. This season a little subdued but the shapes are there and a certain oddness to pieces that still work in an amazing fashion! Ya don’t stop the shinin’!

CARMEN MARCH FW17

Carmen March bringing a hard image to the game. Her women don’t look like marshmallows for sure. Dig the clothes with their 80’s flair, the peakabo steez of the sheer mesh and leather elements, and the paired down color palette. Keep on rockin’.
