I’m a huge fan of Karl’s work for Chanel, but when it comes to his namesake brand I feel we’re getting a bit shafted.

TWITS: Hutson Opting Out of Fashion Week

Picture 1

Last Fall, Swaim and Christina Hutson said a sad goodbye to Obedient Sons & Daughters and retested the fashion waters with new label Hutson. According to Meenal Mistry’s Twitter, Hutson, despite their projections to show at Fall 2009’s Fashion Week, will not be showing during the infamous week. Instead, a “small series” of Spring 2010 pieces will be available at the end of September. Devastation.

AD DICT: Prada Fall 2009

The full Prada campaign has been released, my favorite are the detail shots of the shoes splashing in the dark murky waters where the models are lounging. These ads are stunning in their simplicity.

RUNWAY RUNDOWN Y’s Red Label Fall 2009

RUNWAY RUNDOWN Y’s Red Label Fall 2009

Took me long enough to post this one, I suppose. The last few months have gone by too quickly. Aside from the garments with text prints, which I only included one of above, I really am smitten with this collection. The reasons are obvious, surely… she successfully was able to take the Yamamoto silhouette and really craft it to be her own version for this label and I was beginning to look forward to her output a great deal. Unfortunately, it was been going around that Ms. Suzuki has in fact resigned from the Red Label and subsequently – but so unfortunately – NONE of this gorgeous collection will be seeing the light of day as far as actually going into production and then to retail.

I’m unsure of her reasoning, as it was by word of mouth that I learned of her departure, but while she will be missed as designer of this label, I really hope that she will continue to have some sort of output for us to gawk at because her work is stunning and also I’d love to see what, at this point in her career, she will come up with when not under the confines of someone else’s brand.

The hair, the use of leather, the DIY possibilities; this collection by Jose Castro sure had OutsaPop Trashion talking and recreating. The bloggette is set to recreate some of his pieces using 20 euro worth in thrift shop purchases. Be sure to check out her blog for more on the process.

RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Andrea Crews, Fall 2009

Andrea Crews are one of the few designers that can successfully merge artistic expression with wearable fashion. Hosting massive DIY style events to harvest materials for their collections, the group has created these pieces for their Fall 2009 collection titled Sister of Mercy.

It’s amazing that they are able to create items that are so on trend —drop-crotch, slashed pants, statement necklaces, sweatshirt material— and still remain artists

Here are some of our favorite shots from the show, taken from their Colette blog.

RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Undercover Fall 2009

undercoverfront Undercover Autumn 2009: the Slickness!

The Undercover show, according to Style, took place on a Mylar blanket runway in a forest in a Japan. There were just two models and supposedly it was cold as all get out, done to highlight the high-tech nature of Jun Takahashi’s fabric choices. According to the article:

“Takahashi hybridizes biker jackets, puffers, parkas, regular tailoring, and knits to produce lightweight jackets and coats, which are lined with membranes and microcapsules developed for NASA. Some of them absorb body heat indoors and then release it when the wearer steps out into colder conditions. Others will block biting windchill, even though they’re ostensibly as flimsy as blazers.”

“I am overweight, so I am very, very aware of what to show and what not to show, and I am sure there is a huge link with being an overweight designer and the work I do. My fantasy is to be skinny.”

DSquared2 Fall 2009 Reminds Me of Mary Kate

So if you took Mary-Kate from four years ago and designed an entire collection around it and then added a couple of trucker hats, you’d have DSquared2 Fall 2009 collection. Leggings, leopard and Starbucks cups make this collection seem dated in the worst kind of way. While it is a collection that imitates many existing trends, it just doesn’t offer much in the way of something new and exciting, which means its the type of collection that you’d probably find at Forever 21 and H&M right this second.
