Fashion Week: Thakoon Spring 2012

This is not what I expected from Thakoon considering previous collection. This year he presented us something totally diferent. It's fun approach to his previous style, there are beautiful prints and the stylng is beyond. I think he deserves a standing applause. The collection reminds me of Alice in Wonderland meets western cartoon. The whole concept is fresh ans very whimsical. 

I love:

Detailing is wonderful.

Beautifully printed dress.

I love everything about this look.

This beautifull gown.

The coat is just breathtaking.

Fashion Week: Alexander Wang

I’m very torn about Alexander Wang, he’s young desirable and talented, but sometimes I think because of that he gets to put out ridiculous piece on the catwalk. This collection made me very confused there were some genius pieces that I adore but some things just reppled me. 

I love:

I like the whole concept of feminine and sporty. Love the sheer panels and flowers. 

Lego inspired (?) cycling outfit.

Love the corset and sheer panels on floral pants.

Motorcross suit from Wang.

Ultra chic coat.

I hate:

I don't understand the concept. It's ugly.

This is just ugly.

Tacky leather cheerleader outfit from 90’s.

Ugly and unflattering velvet dress. I can expect everything from Wang but not boring bodycon dress.

Fashion Week: Prabal Gurung Spring 2012

Sorry guys for huge pause. I've been so busy with watching shows and catching up with some school stuff and friends who came back from their holidays. I've missed out on few first shows but the minute I saw Pragabl Gurung's show I had to share it with you. 

In my opinion Prabal Gurung is one of the most anticipated young designer in US.  His designs are young, chic and elegant. This season he collaborated with London print designer to bring us a collection different than we’ve seen before. I was happy to see his pretty dresses with a twist, sheer panels, latex covered fabrics and I’d dare to say avan garde textures. Everything with amazing detailing and in fantastic colourful prints. 

I love:

Super weird coat and those cute shorts are working great toghether.

I love that among feminine dresses he did a super cute suits.

The latex dress is amazing.

Amazingly detailed sheer dress

It's amazing when PG goes avant garde on sheer gown . 

I hate:

Tacky violet and 80’s tiulle on the hem.

This happens when he tries too hard to make elegant, more young.

It’s awful when Prabal Gurung goes Versace.

Lace + Print

I've been meaning to show of  this lace top for a long time now. It's one of my favourite, it's not exactly lace more of a mix of lace an cut-out, very folk-ish. I deided to pair it with print maxi skirt to add some contrast to the outfit. Hope you like it. 

P.S. I'm very thankful for your comments and support. I promise to blog better (?) and not to disappoint you.

Ysl vs. Louboutin: Red Sole

The issue that has been on everyone's mouth, was it ok for Louboutin to sue Yves Saint Laurent for using red sole?
I think that Louboutin could be outraged by the fact but unfairly. It is true that when we mention red sole we mean Louboutin's shoes, when we see photos of celebrities on red carpet we instantly think of our favorite French shoe designer but honestly, soles are parts of outer shell of the shoe. It would be like fighting over the fabric of the shoe or texture.

Christian Louboutin and his "trademark" red sole

Also considering the fact that YSL always has a specific shape of shoe I don’t think any respectable fashionista can mistake YSl “pallais” with Louboutin’s shoes beside in cases in which red sole was used in YSL’s designs was to match the rest of outer shell of the shoes, which is why I think that the lawsuit was unnecessary.

YSL "Palais" shoes

As for red sole trademark, I think we've seen a lot of non-Louboutin shoes with red sole. They are indeed knock offs but the shape is simple, classic it cannot be registered as trademark and louboutin cannot be against their production. I admit that we all associate red sole with only Louboutin and any other brand, and he was the only one who stick with red sole on every of his shoe. But let's be honest, the red sole was used as a part of a design far before we all hear about Christian louboutin, for instant it was worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in The Wizard of Oz.

on th left YSl,  right Louboutin

On the other hand, Louboutin red is very specific (he was allowed to register Pantone-18 Chinese Red shade as his trademark) and easily recognizable, was it really necessary for ysl to use the exact shade?
 What do you think about this issue? Let me know I’m very curious.

Did I mention my obsession for metalics?! I'm still crazy about that, and currently I'm looking for metalic leather jacket, add some studs and I'm ready to die for it. :P  The skirt I'm wearing is actually  vintage dress. It's one of my best finds, it can be worn both in summer (considering Polish weather this summer) and autumn.
I hope you will enjoy my outfit.
