Mary Katrantou Fall/10 collection is full of colors, what stands from almost all the others; and very Baroque inspired. In someway I find it a bit like Alexander McQueen style, but still original. I think british designers have been creating more commercial collections lately, and this one is no exception. Even so, like I said before, it is original, otherwise I wouldn't post here on Maison Chaplin. Where are you LONDON Fashion Week?

A colecção Outono/10 de Mary Katrantou é cheia de cores, o que a distingue de quase todas as outras; e muito inspirada no estilo Barroco. Até certo ponto penso que se assemelha muito ao estilo Alexander McQueen, mas ainda assim original. Penso que os designers britânicos têm apresentado linhas mais comerciais ultimamente, e esta não é excepção. Ainda assim original, como disse antes, senão não publicaria aqui no Maison Chaplin. Onde estás LONDON Fashion Week?

The Ashley Isham Fall/10 collection made me smile, in a collection where Ashley took the risk and created audacious lines and different fabrics, and sober colors but still fun. I find it interesting the way Ashley used the plastic in the creation process of some dresses, what usually requires for more sophisticated fabrics, but still keeping the elegance. Like in the Mary Katrantzou's collection, I find some inspiration in Alexander McQueen and maybe John Galliano as well. The final result it is a fun collection, with very audacious details but very well executed, without loosing the sense of elegance.

A colecção Outono/10 de Ashley Isham made me smile, com linhas e materiais ousados, e cores sóbrias mas divertidas. Achei interessante a forma como Ashley utilizou o plástico na criação de alguns vestidos, o que por norma requer materiais mais sofisticados, mas ainda assim conseguindo mantê-la. Assim como a colecção de Mary Katrantzou, consigue-se ver algumas inspirações em Alexander McQueen e talvez John Galliano também. No resultado final temos uma colecção divertida, com detalhes muito arriscados mas muito bem conseguidos sem perder o sentido da elegância.

  1. I think the Mary Katrantzou collection is a too busy for my taste. There is just way too much going on, between the swirl of colors and the ruffles!

  2. I definitely agree with you here: this is one of the best shows I have seen from LFW this time round! In the long term, Mary K. needs to reinvent herself and perhaps get experience in a bigger house, but so far, so very good!http://davidikus.blogspot.com
