If we're going to to princess, can we please do less fairy godmother and tulle? More the vintage lady deal? I'd enjoy that more.
See, this is something I can understand. A soft look. However, there can more of an aura of innocence rather than this need to include every single color that I can find at the local nursery. I'm more about texture rather than color.
Which brings me to my disappointment about this year's Fall/Winter. In season, it's less about showing skin and looking good doing it, or creating that fairy tale. These later shows tend to have more of a hard edge. Less pastels, more neutrals. More variety of texture, opposed to the seemingly endless tulle. Bring on the heavy brocades, velvets, accentuate them with hints of lace, fur, leather, corduroy, tweed, heavy wool. Leave me in this rich no-nonsense world. Given, color to me is something that isn't dependent highly on the season. But Fall often brings those deep reds, Burgundy, navy, emerald, amethyst, sapphire, burnt orange, slate, powerful browns. Colors with dimension. This is what I look forward to.
But today, I was perusing this seasons shows and while there were a heavy reptilian influence in this season, with the typical heavy presence of furs, I was disappointed to find that all of my favorite things about Fall has been replaced by black. Grey. Black. More black. It was so repetitive. I shall continue the search, but so far I am yet to find a show that pleases me.
