Spring 2010, Suede Overload?

Alright, it's just the third (or is it the forth, or even fifth already?) day of NY fashion week, and there have been so much suede thrown to our faces already?!

New York S/S 2010: Helmut Lang

The first day of New York Fashion Week usually does not amaze me, and it's not until the early morning of this red dot country that the first group of pictures starts floating around the net. So why am I sacrificing my "beauty" (or "handsome" if I may) sleep just to view collections after collections of designers reinterpreting past season's trends - which is logical since it's still "trendy" even it's already the next season-?

But a lunch with one of my dearest, a short nap, and dinner at my aunt's later, I came to realise that throughout my day, nothing had been stuck in my head except these:

You might question yourself, and the answer from me will definitely be, "Yes, they do look familiar! So old and used!"

However, the only explanation or enlightener for our mercy-less eyes can only be one name, Helmut Lang.

Try a stroll in Helmut Lang's archives, and you'll see the rows and rows of the same drapes and silhouettes staring back at us. The legendary original designer might have resigned five years ago, but the Colovos couple, Michael and Nicole certainly hasn't put Helmut Lang's legacy to shame of any kind since they became the creative directors of the brand when it's resurrected into the fashion scene again in 2008.

So what might seem ordinary now, was actually been shown through the career of Helmut Lang and successors. Could it be time just seem right for the house's aestheticism and blatantly names it "trendy", or is fashion as a whole moving too slowly to appreciate Helmut Lang's eyes for clothing art?

Spotted: SJP @ SATC 2 Set

Not that I'm a movie buff nor am I one of the billion SATC fans, but am I just not quite expecting a dress as obvious as this would be Patricia's chose for Carrie:

Sure, SJP has that gorgeous yoga-toned body to carry that dress well. But the thought of Carrie Bradshaw would possibly choose this dress out of her walk-in closet just isn't that convincing.

Bring in more of the unwearability in SATC movie one Pat! Fuck the haters (her styling for the actual series isn't that amazing to me anyways), you took that chance, and you should enjoy it!

Rainy Day Humour

Carrie Fisher:

"I'm one of those rare people who can take a designer dress and make it look like I got it on sale at Ross."

"The common look I got seemed to be one of pity. A look that asked, "Why would someone with her breast size wear something that encourage so much attention? Why didn't she stay home wearing a Snuggie watching the exercise channel and sobbing quietly before crawling into bed to count sheep, like calories, until she fell asleep, perchance to dream of thinner times, outfitted in more appropriate outerwear?""

September UK Harper's Bazaar , an article about her attempt on what they call the "IT" Balmain jacket.

Nice humour Princess Leila! :D
