Marni Fall 2010 Accessories

Marni Fall 2010 Accessories

The clothing from Marni’s fall 2010 collection was interesting to say the least. It wasn’t relaxed and easy wearing as the Marni Pre-Fall 2010 collection. I’m sure when I see individual pieces on the rack I’ll forget about the styling nightmare I saw on the runway and I’ll be able to see the beauty in some of this stuff. That’s what usually happens with me and Marni; I need to see it in person.

I really liked some of the accessories. The bags are beautiful and sleek. Marni Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection on Style.com: Runway Review.

D&G Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

D&G Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

The D&G Fall 2010 collection felt like a Dsquared2 show. It seemed the knits were something I would expect from the Canadian duo. There are some great knits for fall 2010. I even love the knit jumpsuits and rompers. I don’t understand the concept of short knits in winter but I’m loving it.

These guys know how to work a theme in a collection. D&G puts out collections that don’t waiver at all. I admire them for it.

Maria Grachvogel Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

Maria Grachvogel Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

It was the prints that attracted me to Maria Grachvogel Fall 2010 collection.  They remind me of the sea, sky and mountains.

Maria Grachvogel Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

Maria started her line in 1994 and has been showing at London Fashion week since.  She shuns traditional techniques and doesn’t use fit models but real people.  Sizes run from 2 – 20 and she designs so that the garments flatter all sizes.

Maria Grachvogel hand paints each design which is then digitally printed on the fabric.

Jeremy Laing Ready To Wear – Fall 2010

Jeremy Laing Ready-to-Wear Fall 2010

Jeremy Laing debuts fur and knits for his Fall 2010 collection.  I’m in love.  The huge waffle knit looks so cosy and warm.  I love the fur hoods and snoods.  I can see these being a hot item for fall, especially with the unusual treatment and colours. Beaver, raccoon, and muskrat pelts come from sustainably hunted animals in Canada.

Jeremy Laing Fall Winter 201 InspirationÂ

Jeremy was inspired by: “Elements of the Canadian northwest coast: from the curvilinear style of Native American graphics appearing on totems, boxes and midcentury art prints to the rich colors and textures of the redwood forest.”

Jeremy Laing Ready To Wear - Fall 2010

This collection was an exploration of texture and surface.  Most elements of this collection I loved but I did feel that it was a little all over the place.  I’m on the fence with what I call the sky print (it looks like a night sky full of stars).  I want to see it in person or on video because I think the camera isn’t doing it justice.

Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

The Proenza Schouler fall 2010 show was fun. It had the bumping runway music and I loved the clothing. It was very preppy and collegiate in a way. The graffiti print denim, a collaboration with J Brand, gave the preppy a bit of an edge. The shoes however were beyond stupid and ugly. I wondering why everyone walked so funny during the show. It’s because of these

Final Fashion Paper Doll – Rodarte Fall 2010

Danielle from Final Fashion is doing paper dolls again. She’s expanded from Toronto and is taking the experience to the international fashion scene. First up is a final fashion paper doll for Rodarte Fall 2010.

I didn’t care much for the Rodarte collection but I really did love their white gown finale. Danielle’s rendition is beautiful.

Hexa by Kuho Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

Hexa by Kuho Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

Hexa by Kuho designer, Kuho Jung is Korean and he showed in New York for Fall 2010. He called his collection,’Talpi’ which translates from Korean as ‘ecdysis’ – “the moulting of skin in reptiles and amphibians, although the term can be used ‘to
represent attempts to shed our outer skins and reemerge as spiritually more perfect’.”

Hexa by Kuho Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

I very intrigued by the shapes in the collection.  Some of it looks very restrictive, but that doesn’t deter my desire to want to wear it.

Marni x Current Elliot Fall 2010

Marni x Current Elliot Fall 2010
Marni and Current Elliot have teamed up for denim collaboration for Fall 2010. Marni designer, Consuelo Castiglioni, was given free reign to design denim that fit with the Marni aesthetic. This is her first denim line

Dyes and washes span from light azure to indigo and from faded to saturated. A few styles will be sold with a black cotton belt that Castiglioni likes knotted as a ribbon. Other details include cloth borders, either press studded or piped in leather. Retail prices for the Marni-Current Elliott jeans range from $250 to $500 and will be carried in Marni stores starting in June.

This denim gives me visions of chunky boots and rolled up cuffs. I’d pair them with an oversized tshirt and my Final Fashion docs or any of the shorter boots in my closet.

Jen Kao Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

Jen Kao Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

Jen Kao is an American designer who launched her label in 2007. This is her debut on I want – I got. I was initially taken by the swimsuit/bodysuit with sheer panels.

Jen Kao Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

It’s a very dark collection with lots of leather, knits and fur. It has that sci-fi edge that I really enjoy also.

You can watch the full mens Fall 2010 collection from D&G on the website. I didn’t like this collection that much. The pants were very distracting. I didn’t like the oversized, multiple layers styling either.  However, the knits were lovely.

The kind people at Swide.com emailed me some pictures of the backstage action at the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 fashion show. I thought I should share some of my favourite shots. Some are just purely eye candy, very good eye candy.

You can watch the full mens Fall 2010 collection from Dolce & Gabbana on the website. The whole collection felt very mobster. I liked the clothing and did not enjoy the presentation. It was information overload for me. I was amazed at the number of models that were cast for the show. The final walkout was insane.

Here is a video that discusses some key looks from the Fall 2010 mens collection; providing information about material and techniques.

Andy Thê-Anh Gets a New Look

Andy Thê-Anh

Lots of changes are going down at Andy Thê-Anh. He’s moving his Yorkville store from 83 Yorkville Avenue 27 Bellair Street. He’s also heading north and Bayview Village location has been added at 2901 Bayview Avenue.

In addition to the new stores, Andy had re-branded.

Why Andy Thê-Anh is launching a new visual identity?
For the brand, it will mark a new milestone: we want to embrace our past, but look to the future.  Our new identity will enable us to continue positioning ourselves in the high-end market and
have a visual look that matches our growth ambitions. It is also important for us to have a logo that doesn’t necessarily need our brand name to identify our collection and our accessories in
the eye of the public.

Andy Thê-Anh

What is the image you want to convey with that new identity?
Our new identity will mirror the high-end, sophisticated image of Andy Thê-Anh’s creations. It is important at this stage in our development to have symbols and colors that identify us clearly
and that people can clearly associate with us. At this stage in our company development, symbols and colors that distinguish our identity clearly and that clients and the public can clearly associate with us is of utmost importance to the brand

Here are some sneak peak images of the Fall 2010 Andy The-Anh.

I like the new branding, it’s very clean looking. It will be interesting to see the stores and how they are set up in order to convey this new image for Andy Thê-Anh. Most of all, I can’t wait to see more for Fall 2010 from Andy.
