Because I am quite far behind on my fashion shows I have decided to condense the last few days into one final post. That means that these are the absolute stand out pieces from the final days of PFW.
There should also be a moment of silence for both Jean Paul Gaultier’s last Hermes collection and Sarah Burton’s first collection for Alexander McQueen. Let the changing of the guards commence.
Paul and Joe
Muiccia Prada does no wrong in my eyes. Both Prada and Mui Mui are amazing brands which speak to me. I loved loved (loved) the Spring/Summer 2010 collection as well as the Fall/Winter which will hit stores soon. The advertisements are always quirky and charming (see below) but the most recent campaign features very alien like models and a whole lot of air brushing.
This is the Spring/Summer campaign featuring Lindsey Wixon, big lips and all.
Super 60’s, Twiggy inspired, it is amazing and perfect and I love it.
But now with the Fall/Winter, the trend is more towards completely washed out faces and unrealistic face/body shapes:
I love the so called “alien” models such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole, and it seems to me like this trend is coming back in the fashion industry. However, Daphne Groenveld, the far left model honestly scares me in this image, but she is super pretty in real life. And Lindsey Wixon is featured in these ads again, she is the one with the completely unrealistic cleavage. The amount of photo shopping done to her chest bothers me to no end, and especially because it is done quite poorly. I am no expert on photo-shopping, and I won’t pretend to be, but the shading and highlighting looks too fake to me, I am overly distracted by it too appreciate the great clothing.
These are images of Lindsey in a bathing suit:
