Cool like Chloe
hoooorah, well done you three!
Thanks everyone else who entered, you mostly got the right answers, so I obviously have true fashion readers! but check back to see where you went wrong, the comment moderation is finally off! Pheww.
The answers were:
1. Victoria Beckham (who else could create such wardrobe chaos over the space of 2 weeks?..)
2. Viktor and Rolf. I have sympathetic towards the models who had to walk in wooden clogs and support lighting! They still magaged to look good though, no?
3. Vogue India will be launched in September.
4. The model is Natalia Vodianova. Hawwt stuff.
5. And Zac Posen was the designer with him
Is she pregnant again, Mrs Fashion? Ooh, how exciting, I find the thought of her and Jack White raising a family rather cool. I think we'll be taking a break from the quiz now!...
*Oh, and I'll have that apple please. Braeburn, thanks!
Onto other pressing matters...
[Insert witty, rhyming slogan here]
The overexposure I seem to be sufferering from slogan tees everytime I make a trip to the shops is now at an all time (yawwn) high, and I don't know about you, but these House of Holland high street rip offs (and even the real deal) are becoming about as unrare as the desert scarves that are now thankfully beginning to die down.
All of this "DROP BEATS NOT BOMBS" and "INDIE CINDY" nonsense now makes me wonder where Henry Holland will go from here? He made a dramatic impact entrance and now he just needs to substain his popularity with some fresh ideas. I'm thinking he needs to branch out his designs into lines that can be sold in upmarket boutiques and shops, that still carry the quirkly and humourous edge that we will now expect from him. Or do you think its likely that he'll just fade into the background and bask in the fame that he "once had", on nights out with Agy?
The next Alexanders and Stellas...
Alumni include cool kids Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen, Marios Schwab...and thats just the start. It would be an understatement to say that St Martins is the ultimate fashion institute. Every year, to showcase the talent, the graduation ceremony will take place, and its often here that fashion bigwigs will gather to predict who will be the next big thing and on everyones minds in the near future.
There were so many fantastic collections from this years graduation (it took part in february), I could have quite easily have copied and pasted all 167 pictures from style.com. Uhh, yeahh, but we all know that gets a little boring, no?
So here are my picks. They're all completely original and very, very 2007. Anyone sick of vintage? I'm after new ideas, new designs and new fashions...
1. Pavel Ivancic. Pavel seems to be very intune with the thoughts of designers such as Nicolas Ghesquiere with strong structuring, bold colours and a 'extra' speciality for volume.
2. Jamie Bruski Tetsill. Ok, what I said before about vintage. Ahem... but this is in a good way, it looks like he's rummaged through his parisian alcoholic grandma's trunks in the attic and recycled them with a whole load of new ideas using a sleek, shiny sewing machine at midnight. Anyone else..?
3. Seon Ju Kam. Many have commented that this collection is reminisent of Chloe, and I agree. Though the mix of feminine frills with the skinny tuxedo trouser add a fresh spin on things, saying out with the folk and in with the new.
4. Mattijis Van Bergen. For me, there is something about the collection that is reminiscent of 2005 Burberry. It's the motherly feminity and the mixture of 'burberry beiges' with new glitz.
