Pre-fall Collections 2010 report

It’s pre-fall 2010 time and the designers are certainly keeping us all entertained with a wide variety of new looks. There are some repeated trends such as sheer fabrics and chunky jewelry. Unfortunately harem pants seemed to have survived another year as well although they are less gold sequin flash and more black swinging fabric. There also seems to be an emphasis on the colour red for cocktail dresses and formal gowns as seen at Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. Shoulder padded shoulders have placed a nice curve on what was last season a strong point outwards from the collarbone. It’s a nice change adding a touch more femininity to the collections, bar Versace who stuck with a strong angled shoulder for the season preview.
Here’s my top ten looks from the collections shown….

1. Oscar de la Renta
2. Carolina Herrera
3. Donna Karan
4. Chanel
5. Rachel Roy
6. Versace
7. Devi Kroell
8. Alexander Wang
9. Burberry Prorsum
10. J Mendel

The devil is in the details

Heels this year were the largest we have seen yet on the catwalk. Ten inch numbers were all the rage. People laughed when Heidi Klum teetered on 12 inch heels for German Vogue thinking it was an editorial stunt. However, it looks like the glossy trend is becoming a reality. How are mere mortals expected to walk in ten inch heels when the professionals – the catwalk models – can’t manage it without wobbly legs or occasional falls?
The pain may just be worth it. Legs look positively giraffe-like in these masterpieces. So here are my top picks for the forthcoming spring season.
