First we have Alexander Wang. While this seasons offerings may not have been as good as his last, it's clear that he's coming into an image of his own. We saw the signature faded denim cutoffs again, but in dark wash, and transcended the cooler climate by pairing them with tights that were deliberated ripped and run-ed.
Demuelemeester, the queen of the grunge age of fashion is still running very strong. It seems shes developed a niche of that "Belgian" style of clothing (she's part of the famed 'Antwerp Six' that also includes Dries Van Noten and Dirk Bikkembergs) that has developed into a sort of avant garde feel. Her offering this year was truly stunning, incorporating lavender and white furs with her signature mostly-black silhouette.
I'm always a fan of Fendi. I think Karl is overrated for his design efforts at Chanel, but truly underrated for those at Fendi. Plus they have one of the hottest accessory designers around, and their signature over sized clutches are simply to die for. Their furs, as usual, were the star of this forest-nymphish show, including some that were dipped in gold!
piercing black shades, treaded heels and patent Mary Jane Tributes, and even MC Hammer-ish tapered pants. It all worked so well with the set and the music (LCD Soundsystem's "Someone Great", if you're wondering), and was truly the knockout show of the season.
