F/W 09 Stella McCartney was clean and classic, with several fabulous blazers and overcoats that made me the teensiest bit nostalgic for winter. JUST KIDDING. The delicate lace was tasteful and victorian-esque, yet I have to admit that the shoes and bags disappointed me immensely.
YSL was a little bit disappointing, though it did make me realize that I REEEAALLY need a pair of leather pants, like, NOW.
These shoes are absolutely the best black heels I've ever seen in my life. I may have to save up for them.
Viktor & Rolf was not as crazy as usual, (remember the bold NO designs from last year?) but their white-faced models, combined with the recent viewing of Stella M's delicate lace inlays made me recognize what will probably be a HUGE trend next year: Victorian era. I know it may be hard to picture all the crazy studs and ripped denim fading into the trend vault, but I think it'll happen. My predictions: Leather will stay, studs will go, lace will stay, fringe will go. What do you think?
EDIT: I shouldn't say studs will go, all the DIY stud-gun obsessed bloggers out there will kill me! I'm just kidding girls, what do I know? ps-i wish i had the time/energy to DIY.
