What does Barbara think? NY Fashion Week SS10 Edition

I was reading the Buyers Laud New York Fashion Shows article in WWD today. I’m always interested in what the buyers/retailers think of the collections. For the last few seasons I’ve been posting about Barbara Atkin’s feelings on the show. Spring 2010 is no exception. Barbara Atkin, vice president of fashion direction at Toronto-based Holt Renfrew: “The week was very optimistic with a beautiful lightweight feeling to the clothes and beautiful palettes. The season was fresh and modern and spoke to a new generation who is traveling and packing light. In this economy, it’s all about fit and quality, looking at clothing and saying, ‘This is worth the money I’m spending.’ If it’s not going to jump out at the customer, she’s not going to buy it. “Oscar de la Renta understands his woman and understands the casual lifestyle. At the same time, he knows this woman needs a structured, tailored suit, and he still makes it feel modern. Marc Jacobs is a visionary. He took essential pieces and cultural elements from around the world …

Phi Ready to Wear – Spring 2010

Phi didn’t disappoint me during NY Fashion Week. I love this season’s take on bondage. At lot of the styles and details remind me of straight jackets. It seems weird only on paper. Sasha P is walking and that makes me happy. I remember seeing her in real life at the Spring 2008 Phi presentation. images:

Rodarte Ready to Wear – Spring 2010

I was so looking forward to the Rodarte Spring 2010 show. I saw the photos initially and wasn’t all that jazzed up about it. It didn’t grab me like past seasons. So I watched the video on and my opinion changed to not really enjoying it. I loved the pants, shoes and music though. images: Rodarte Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection on

Vera Wang Spring 2010 Accessories

NY Fashion Week is doing nothing for me. I can’t remember a season where I didn’t like a majority of the collection. Jeremy Laing has been the only standout for me. I do love Vera Wang’s accessories for Spring 2010 thought images: Vera Wang Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection on

Lingerie Francaise presents Secret of Seduction

I usually one to skip lingerie shows. They are usually held a clubs and aren’t really a fashion but a vehicle to get horny men into the venue and buying alcohol. However last year I attended Lingerie Francaise presents Secret of Seduction which was a showcase of the top companies in France. I was a big fan of two of the companies in the show so I decided to attend. To my surprised I enjoyed myself so when the opportunity came up again I said yes and brought my trusty photog to document. I knew Paul would enjoy this gig immensely. The night will once again feature coveted brands last year’s celebrated evening; Lejaby, Elixir, Simone Perele, Chantelle, and Passionata will all share their unique fashion visions. Newcomers to the event Empreinte and Gerbe hosiery round out the selection for an evening that promises to provide a truly comprehensive presentation of the seductive and feminine world of lingerie. Details and embellishments are a strong trend for 2009/2010 with florals, embroidery and lace appearing in …

Men’s Spring 2010 Fashion Show Venues did there seasonal post about fashion show venues. I always like seeing the photos of the venues before the people, models, photographers and clothing arrive. The Moncler venue is stunning. The models walked on the deck of the pool. I love the graffiti in venue, it was quite the contrast to the John Galliano Sprign 2010 collection. images:

Philip Sparks Spring 2010 Lookbook – Behind The Scenes

I was lucky enough to catch the photoshoot for the Philip Sparks Spring 2010 Lookbook. I didn’t want to post my pictures until the lookbook hit the streets. Now it’s out, I can share some of my behind the scenes experience. The table of accessories.

Philip and Mackenzie talking about the shot See all my photos from that day

Spring 2010 Footwear Sketch Preview

I was reading the Footwear News section of WWD and came across designer sketches for the Spring 2010 collection. I find the different drawing styles fascinating in footwear sketches.
