Spring/Summer 2010 Trends in womenswear

Some styles, colors or specific pieces found their way into various collections for spring/summer 2010. I summed them up in five categories. Each of them is divided in four under-categories. Not every trend is necessarily recommendable for everyday wearing, but you should know about them anyway.

So I'm gonna post one of those five groups today and the others day by day - so you don't get overfed by too many pictures at a time...

Avantgardish Co-op


(picture burrowed from wwd.com)

Singer Róisín Murphy is a style icone, that's for sure. The avantgarde lover did a performance for Viktor & Rolf at their fabulous spring/summer 2010 fashion show.
Now she’s teaming up with London-based eyewear label Linda Farrow Vintage to create a limited edition pair of sunglasses. The launch party for the glasses was held last Sunday night at London’s Aura club, where Murphy took to the stage for the first time since her daughter Clodagh was born in December.

"The singer revealed her newborn has inherited her sense of style. “She already has more clothes than me,” said Murphy with a laugh. Murphy’s sunglasses will be sold at Linda Farrow Vintage stockists from April priced at 325 pounds, or $502 at current exchange."

By the way - doesn't Róisín look fantastic in Dolce & Gabbana?!

It's my time...

Wanna become a model in a worldwide add campaign?

If so - no problem. Just go to http://casting.benetton.com/ and become a part of the worldwide casting campaign "It's my time".
Upload pics and/or videos that show not only you're one of a kind style, but also your personality. The people taking part in the campaign can choose the top 100 and a special jury will anounce the 20 winners in the mid of March. Those get to travel to the Big Apple to shoot the campaing pictures.

Let's just hope there are no fresh-born babys, bloodsoaked uniforms, death-row-candidates or emaciated Aids-patients involved... But with Benetton you never know!

Designer Look of the day

(burrowed from style.com)

As I don't have any street style feed yet, here's a new designer look which i find great.

If you can't wait any longer for spring to come and you're going on a vacation, best be inspired by Hussein Chalayan and his spring/summer 2010 collection when choosing your wardrobe.
The fabulous, mostly white, outfits would be perfect when going on a cruise - but don't forget the hat (with the integrated visor - genius!)

I'm so sorry...

...for being so fucking lazy at the moment.
I've postet nothing in ages, but I'll be more productive again, I swear!

I want to change the main the subject of the blog and start doing street styles.
Street styles of Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg which I find classy or interesting or crazy avantgardish - in one word: outstanding. And then compare, who has it really going on. Berlin Mitte people who are said to be top notch, when it comes to fashion sense. Or foreign tourists and students from abroad, etc...

So stay tuned... or better - sign up!

R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

The fashion scene was hit by shocking news yesterday afternoon - one of the most influential and creative designers of our time - Alexander McQueen was found dead in his apartment.

The pictures I dug out of the archives of style.com show my favourite pieces of his work in the last five years.

Who is there now to show us that high level of creativity and such original looks? Who will conjure up such fun Barbarella-Overalls, Butterfly-hats or all-over hound's-tooth looks out of thin air?
Most likely Gareth Pugh will be chosen to try (I guess). But
I think there is nobody able to fill his shoes. Alexander rest in peace!

Designer Look of the day


(burrowed from style.com)

Anna Molinari's Fall/Winter collection 2009 for the label Blumarine contains some of the hottest looks for party girls this season.
Presented on a shiny runway that reflected the popart installation going on in the background, the crowd could take a look at fabulous evening gowns, bling blingy jewellery and various outfits in multi-colored neon leo-prints.
Hotpants and open high-heeled shoes may not be the first thing to enter your mind when thinking about an appropriate outfit to go out dancing in a winter's night, but if I were a girl (able to wear sample sizes) I'd immediately put them on and hail a cab!

Harajuku, Tokio

I love the color combination, the hat, the tights and the shoes!! The chandelier earrings are a little too much - even for me - but otherwise it's a great great great outfit!

Designer Look of the day


(burrowed from style.com)

I can't withhold it any longer... After doing a massmarket effective collection for the American department store Target and after they received rave reviews by almost every other blog for their knitwear (both for women and men), I finally have to write about Kate and Laura Mulleavy - the sister duo behind the label Rodarte.
The self-taught sisters (they studied at Berkeley, but nothing fashion familiar - Kate studied art history, Laura English literature) hit the fashion scene in 2005 - hard that is! They are said to have influenced so many other (very well known) labels ever since.
Their collection for spring/summer 2010 was outstanding. The presentation was apocalyptic - the models walked on a sandy runway covered in a poisonous looking mist, created through
dry ice.
The clothes were apocalyptic as well. The designers destroyed ever material they worked with before using it. They cut, tore, burnt, shredded or dyed every single piece of fabric. And those were wonderful fabrics non the less, they said.
The outfit I took from the collection is the most wearable, I would say. At least if you leave out the tribal tattoos their models got painted on and maybe that witchy belt...
And if you don't agree or do not like that collection, then get one of their pullovers or cardigans - cause they are really top notch!
