Edited by

As we run headlong into 2012, Vogue Germany is flapping back to the 1920s in their January issue. With a futuristic twist brought on by Chanel, Etro, Lanvin, Pucci, Tom Ford, Eddie Borgo and fabulous others, stylist Katie Mossman nails now’s twenties vibe.

Gucci Gucci Coos a Jazz Tune

Edited by

Drop the waist low, fringe it forward, jazz it art deco and you’ve got Gucci Spring 2012. Frida Giannini turned out 20s in Milan, and she was not the only designer to do so this fashion week – think Marchesa, Temperley London, Carolina Herrera and others. However, in a remarkable coincidence (?) in which Giannini insists she was merely musing over NY skyscrapers of that time period, it also happens to be Gucci’s 90th birthday (bust out those calculators, ladies). Be that as it may, there’s an undeniable air of flapper in the air. See Gucci’s best roaring looks from yesterday’s show.

#NYFW Cheat Sheet: BCBG

Edited by

Silk straddled sportswear as Max Azria explores soft angles again for BCBG Spring 2012. Fluttering layers gave way to dropped waistlines and native prints. Sheer jackets may break no wind, but the added layer takes this collection from ancient Grecian flapper cum Native American to the U.S. Open.

FIRST LOOK: Ports 1961 Pre Spring 2010

On Tuesday we were invited to view the Ports 1061 Pre-Spring 2010 collection, entitled “Tea Room Collection”. The collection is a 20′s-looking mix of menswear inspired pieces, metallic threads and flapper-esque dresses. It takes inspiration from Charles Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald, an internationally successful Scottish interior designer and architect and his artist wife. The clean silhouette comes alive with Onyx and Pearl embellishments, shades of plum and nude, paddle sleeves, gold metallic tweed, and graphic velvet.

Previous collections are available for viewing on the Ports 1961 website.

RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Alberta Ferretti, S/S 2009

Edited by

RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Alberta Ferretti, S/S 2009RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Alberta Ferretti, S/S 2009RUNWAY RUNDOWN: Alberta Ferretti, S/S 2009There’s a little Bohemian spirit in all of us, and who better to showcase that carefree edge than Alberta Ferretti? Although a theme within the collection is somewhat lacking, fringe and draping are two major components of her runway looks. If you’re looking for a label, I guess you could consider Ferretti’s girl a Grecian flapper, but a glamorous, sensual well styled one. Oh, and I absolutely love Ferretti’s play on the cocktail dress!
