“Romance is lovely, but romance with great sex is ever better .” I can’t forget that line in the WWD review of Dolce & Gabbana. :D It’s classic, hilarious, and totally true. Dolce & Gabbana are one of the advocates for a darker and moodier spring but in a good way of course. They bring spring romance without the usual fluff and pastel overload that the spring collections tend to have.
And onto free-floating prettiness. It is so difficult to look at spring clothes and pastels when it is raining right outside my window as I type this and it is so very cold. Especially since I have just packed up my pretty sandals for boots. Oh well. You deal. Bottega Veneta surprised me a bit with the dark spring since most of the collection was pastel and slightly boring when suddenly there were shocks of color that bled into the dark dresses you see here. And of course, Versace brought the party without the chaos this time.
I also look forward to London for Amanda Wakeley. I was quite sad when she didn’t show last season but I’m glad for her return. There’s just something about her dresses; I can’t exactly say why I like them so much. Maybe it is the effortlessness of it all. Not to mention the hair is freaking fabulous.
I liked the tasteful minis from this season. Christopher Bailey certainly didn’t disappoint with this collection. There was enough sequins (I didn’t like those dresses as much so I won’t post them) to please my inner party princess but also included the classic trenches that Burberry is known for.
The face paint at Threeasfour is fierce. The clothes are beautiful and artsy; they stand out in a crowd but yet aren’t so conceptual that it is unwearable. I adore the warrior trend that seems to crop up in New York for spring. Of course this means I might start experimenting with this come Halloween.
