Here are a few of my favourite pieces from Helmut Lang this season. When the show first opened with the first outfit (the top one), I was like 'Damn the shoe (forever the first thing I will see), damn the coat, damn the pants, damn the colour!!' Everything was just perfect. Perfect for a casual day outfit, especially for weather like Singapore (uck), a lightweight coat do come in handy at times when you just, you know, want to cake yourself in fancy outerwear without compromising the comfort.
And then the mixture of fabrics and the short sleeved jacket. Basically I'm not a huge fan of short-sleeved outer wears. I'm more of the 'Give me the full sleeve or give me none' sort of person. But I guess the look really captivated me (look 2) with it's simpleness yet edgy ready to wear. I'm sort of a bipolar dresser. I can go to the extreme with fancy dowry (think jewelry if more comfortable) like Anna Dello Russo but I can go casual chic at times like Alexa Chung or Emmanuelle Alt.
Okay so floral has completely taken over the Spring and Summer trends. But the mixture of Floral with Jacquard? Nicole and Michael Colovos sure has gotten my approval. Okay, it's not like as though I'm some big shot or what for them to obtain my approval, but I'm totally IN LOVE with Jacquard items. Plus, they look like gorgeous baroque prints from far, so... Whoo-hoo!!! I'm screaming for the pants, the shorts, the shoessss (even though it's not relevant to the topic here)!
And the idea of Bomber Jackets? Just BOMB gurlllll!
Whoooooo, bright colours!!! Extremely man repelling (think Leandra Medine from manrepeller, in total love with her!!) for someone who wears such outstanding colours out on the streets. Maybe not approved by a non-fashionista type of person, or someone who abides to full black outfits, but for someone like me (a fashion
whore victim, of course), I would totally rock these three looks. Maybe I would even do some colour blocking (think look 2 with look 3's jacket, or look's 2 pullover with look 3's skirt). And with matching heels (look 2)? I can't even think of any other words to say.
Perhaps I'm just crazy, but 3-inch heels (or is it two? I can't really tell), which are something that turns me off if they don't hit at least four, surprisingly didn't turn me off this time round. It's because I'm totally in love with the design of it. Period.
