Nicholas Kirkwood For Rodarte Shoes

RodarteShoes1 Nicholas Kirkwood For Rodarte Shoes

Rodarte again worked with Nicholas Kirkwood for the shoes featured in the NY Fashion week runway show, which took place last night. Kate and Laura Mulleavy told Dazeddigital that this season’s inspiration was Northern California and the collection was about nature versus the last collection, which was “languid and soft.” Can’t say I’m a fan of all the stiff fabrics, which had the effect of styfling the mystery for which this label has become famous. It had a very upholstery-feel to me and it’s a particular fashion pet peeve of mine when designers use fabrics, prints or details (omg, like pom-poms!) that are inspired by a  living room couch. What can I say, certain worlds in my opinion are better left not colliding. That being said, the blue dresses were quite amazing. More shoe images after the flip. Via Dazeddigital.

Tom Ford Backstage Head Shots

TomFordHeadShots Tom Ford Backstage Head Shots

Some headshots from Tom Ford’s super exclusive show have surfaced. There’s been a lot of talk about Tom “dissing the cult of immediacy,” as WWD put it, but the truth is bloggers were invited to the show and it was immediately reviewed and a handful of images immediately leaked out (from the NY Times no less!) and were available on line. I believe in brands protecting their creativity and think images released to the public should be limited or at least capitalized upon like Burberry making the collection available to purchase after its shown. But as far as Tom Ford goes, what if all the hype mainly comes down to him banning profesional photographers and limiting invitees? I mean, until we get a clear vision of the actual rags, we won’t really know will we?

Alex Wang Backstage Pre-Runway Video

13 September 2010, 19.08 | Posted in Fashion Week, Runway Show | No comments »

This V magazine video of the models standing around before they walk is kind of boring, but we’re fascinated by every molecule of this brand so there you have it. And on that note, we see via FashionCopious that Cathy Horyn has decided to go in on Alex Wang’s collection, calling him a thief and not even a very good one at that. It’s always entertaining when someone of Horyn’s power decides to hate on a popular designer/artist/entertainer to that degree. It’s almost as though her goal is to let you know how smart and informed she is and how the masses may be fooled but not her. Reminds me a little of Camille Paglia’s recent dismissal of Lady Gaga. So heavy handed as to mean more about Paglia than anyone else.

Catherine Malandrino Spring 2011.

 Catherine Malandrino Spring 2011.

Others may be getting more hype but their offerings are not as perfect as Catherine Malandrino’s, whose ability to marry edge, effortless elegance and sex with her Spring 2011 collection is sort of amazing. And while there wasn’t a lot of color or pattern work in this collection, Malandrino is certainly not afraid of it and touched on it here and there with steady-handed fearlessness. And the accessories, and the shoes…all black magical. On another note, Malandrino was the only designer thus far in NY Fashion Week who chose to show outside, using Lincoln Ceter to show her collection. Thus the different backdrop from what you may be seeing up until now. More looks after the flip.

Beyonce Walks Super Exclusive Tom Ford Show

TomFordBeyonce Beyonce Walks Super Exclusive Tom Ford Show

Tom Ford relaunched his name as a woman’s wear designer with a Spring 2011 runway show featuring Beyonce, Julianne Moore, Lauren Hutton, Rita Wilson, Daphne Guinness, Farida Khelfa, as well as models Amber Valletta and Stella Tennant. According to Cathy Horyn of the NY Times, the show was held in Ford’s Madison Avenue men’s store and was limited to about 100 editors, who all must have been in heaven to be transported back to a world before the barbarians, i.e. bloggers, crossed the barriers. No images were released (the one on this page is Beyonce arriving), which in addition to protecting Ford’s ideas, certainly creates mystique, and though none will be released until January, one has to bet they will be leaked here and there as needed to create buzz. One more pic of Solange Knowles, wearing a leopard print turban, after the flip. UPDATE: A blurry image showing the shimmery top-half of Beyonce’s dress added.

We post last week about Prabal Gurung’s grown and sexy Spring 2011 collection as here we get a look at the manicures featured in the show. Not everyone wants to go out there when it comes to nail art so this is a nice, mature option that takes the classic French to another level. After the flip, another look, plus a behind view of the hair, which shows an easy and neat styling option for the pony tail.

AlexWang4 Alex Wang Spring 2011 First Looks!

Full sets of Alex Wang’s Spring 2011 collection aren’t up at the moment, but a few looks have shown up on Karen Kooper’s Twitter. A pair of shoes shot backstage are featured here. Definitely the fashion world will be keeping an eye on Wang’s shoes and bags for as much attention as his modern sportswear looks garner, his accessories are killing it. On the next page, see the mint green he uses that will at the very least be a hot nail polish shade for spring, while the white-dreadlocked-East-Village-girl-inspired hair might fall flat.

richie 540x401 Richie Rich Spring/Summer 2011

Fashion Week in New York as much as we love it , can be a little predictable especially now that the economic climate has shifted into something that males us all think a little harder spending . Richie Rich Spring/Summer 2011  is a label we feature purely for the fun of it. Some  pieces are cool but honestly lack the pizzaz and and “bling” creative factor we know the drag community oozes and we’ve seen this kind of show from dame Betsey & Pat Fields. If you are going for something  with your brand,  go full force into your creativity, what makes you unique instead of trying to be purely commercial. Most geniuses of fashion we really believe trusted their instincts more than just “what will sell?”.A healthy balance is the key.  Regardless of our jaded views take a peek on the next page .
