Rachel Antonoff Fall 2011, it was a high school dance and the like played and it was awesome.
Sorry, not into the tailoring on these pants. The plaid ones look quite like a pair of pajamas I have. Also, not digging that fur coat situation-maybe it’s just the picture but it doesn’t look like it justifies the price tag I’m betting it has.
Nobody expects Steven Alan collections to be particularly forward thinking. Overall, I thought this was pretty amazing—very clean lies, lots of layering but not in an overwhelming way. There were lots of playful prints in the womenswear and some very interesting knitwear pieces for men. I dunno, this is the way I dress all the time. Very Holden Caulfield, very.
Also, that red velvet number is killer.
So I may have covered this already but I used to intern for Gilded Age. I can tell you that the quality of these clothes is near unparalleled. Having said that, I’ve been keeping a close eye on what my old boss has been up to and when I finally got a chance to scope this out, I was thrilled. It’s a great evolution of where the brand has been and owns the American Trad more than anything I’ve seen in a while. I was particularly impressed by the outerwear, there seems to be a lot more thought put into it this fall than last. I won’t get to into the womenswear but it was a great compliment to the men’s pieces, I’d say it straddles the line of Opening Ceremony and J.Crew…weird. Good show.
So, this may shock you…but I love X-MEN. Gasp. Shock. Awe. Wah. I really need to do more superheroes on here and do forgive me for being brief today, life has been quite busy lately. Here we have Storm also known as Halle Berry. She can control weather and is pretty badass. Cool, done.
