Christopher Kane Puts his Artistic Skills to the Test

What’s one man’s trash, may be another man’s treasure. As for Fall, Scottish designer, Christopher Kane puts his art skills to the test. Crafting dresses, skirts, and jackets out of what appears to be fabric from none other than a garbage bag. Kane also showed off his crochet skills, with pop up shapes coming out of the sleeves of a neon sweater. While the cocktail gowns towards the end of the collection look as if they were sculptures taken out of an Art Museum, and then illustrated into the clothing. Some of the looks, still remained Classy, with a bit of an edge, with Elegant silhouettes, and a color domination of black and Ballet pink. I definately have to give Christopher Kane props for giving artistic, scpultural like clothing, more than an out-of-this-world Haute Couture like meaning.

Simply BCBG

You know that New York Fashion Week has officially started when the latest BCBG collection has hit the catwalk. This time, designers Lubov and Max Azria have something exciting to celebrate: BCBG Max Azria’s 25th Anniversary. For that special event, Lubov and Max Azria sent models out in simple, flowing, and very wearable dresses that scream, “BCBG!” Outerwear and Artistic elements were keen throughout the collection. As the models swept by on the catwalk, bundled up in furs and feathered separtes of all styles, paired with dresses dazzled up with fine lines, and Graphic, Artistic like inspired prints. To me, it’s Simply another Beautiful, (and very wearable), BCBG collection.

Classic Staples Get an Artsy Vibe at Bottega Veneta

Like my good friend, Emma, there are many Music Peeps, while on the other hand I am more into art. As is Bottega Veneta‘s Creative director, Tomas Maier, who gave Classic wardrobe staples an Artistic twist for Pre-Fall; leaving me pretty much obsessed with every piece. As a trench coat is seen in a floral print. A black pencil skirt feels more artsy with a scribble on the side. A white crew neck gets black animal spots. Black pants and Cocktail dresses get baroqued. And a black leather trench turns Pink.
