VANCOUVER 2010, FUNK YEAH! SO PROUD OF OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOR BRINGING HOME THE GOLD! TEAM CANADA YEAHHHHH! Ok, just had to get that out of my system. Anyways, so I guess F/W 2010 was all about being nice and pretty and romantic and ladylike? None of those traits have ever been my forte, but I did manage to find quite a few looks I liked from my favourite designers.
Vivienne Westwood is my number one. Always has been (since I was fourteen and liked the Sex Pistols) and always will be. Nice to see that Dame Viv shares my adoration for freaky-ass legwear. Creamy beige, highlighter yellow and environmental justice seem like a bizarre mix, but I really really like it.
Proenza Schouler was absolutely wicked! Screw the babydoll dresses, I need this entire outfit.
Marc Jacobs was pretty school. I guess longer skirts are like THE thing right now? That sucks for stumpy people (like me) but I like the fair isle sweater quite a bit.
Jeremy Scott is always a good time, guaranteed. That reminds me of a scribbling I saw in a public washroom the other day that said "For a good time... READ A BOOK."
Christopher Kane was all about the bad-ass granny this season, a.k.a so far up my alley I can feel it coming from the other side.
Of course, I had to save the best for last. Charles Anastase really took me by surprise! I had him pegged as someone who designs for the 'soft, pretty ingenue' type but this collection was just wild! The unexpected colours and ruffles are the totally the best part.
