As daylight savings is quickly approaching, I thought it best to give you a quick preview of what to look forward to in 2010. The Spring/Summer runway shows have been in full swing and here are a few designers I am ruling in favor of thus far. Enjoy!
Hannah MacGibbon stays true to the original “haute hippie” brand with patchwork denim, exaggerated proportions, flowing ponchos, sturdy sandals and light-as-a-feather fairy dresses all on a muted palette. And who doesn’t love the nod to Troop Beverly Hills? Afer all Phyllis Nefler did have a blackbelt in shopping.
A seamless departure from bridal wear for this brilliant Brit. Her elegant draping and bold embellishments put a fresh take on old Hollywood glamour. Peach and lemon never looked so delicious.
Well known for their red carpet gowns, this legendary house serves up a collection of cupcake-like dresses that are far more Frosted Funfetti than the traditional Red Velvet. Swirls and Twirls lighten up these frothy frocks. Treat yourself to seconds. And Thirds…
My all-time favorite never lets me down with his rainbow weave of color, prints and texture and all of their subtle aztec undertones. Though he can be eccentric, Matthew’s take on the metallica trend displays some street practicality i.e. the boyfriend blazer atop a shimmery mini. Ladies about town, take note.
He goes without mentioning, but I just had to. His design team’s masterful mix of patterned, billowing bottoms is sure to be a top trend of spring!
The DVF formula: mix in equal parts wearable design, ethnic prints and sex appeal, then wrap in effortless chic. Sold!
You may not know his name but surely you have seen his signature style on nearly every starlet. Though his designs have rubbed off on the likes of Black Halo and Victoria Beckham, Roland will always remain the original. (And thank Gawd for more jumpsuits. It gives me hope that I might someday find one that fits!) Check out the bedazzling bibs too!
Though her name may be attached to another’s designs, the striking combination of 1940’s vintage Dior with the severe angles of the 1980’s is both regal and radical. Perhaps Posh is more than a wannabe.
SO much more to come! What are your designer picks for spring?
