& we got to get ourselves back to the garden
I’ve been sitting on these for so long … as aforementioned in my last post, my life was chaotic, beginning right around the end of fashion month & these collections got lost in the mix. I wanted to release this though, because it does have a few beautiful pieces, which didn’t belong to any particular fashion week and I’d like to start curating my favourites from Pre-Fall 2019. There is definitely a running ’60’s theme between these looks, which always and will always speak to me.
These dreamy pieces shot with even more dreamy lighting & setting from St. Roche I grew up with a style strongly influenced by Gwen Stefani (aka the 80’s) and there will always be a place in my heart for polkadots. This blouse though does them so well, with the touched sheer sleeves and rainbow colours & manages to make it classy above all else.
These looks from Mulberry are literal throwbacks right to the sixties and I adore them all, especially the two scalloped pieces. I would have been absolutely obsessed with the clear raincoat when I was about 12, I could not get enough things like this, I had several fully clear and transparent bags.
This flower power shift from Lisa Perry is just so Twiggy in the sixties, one of my all time favourite fashion icons. Ps, dividing opinion, but I’m soooo over the current trend toward nepotism in the modelling industry and girls who have had so much surgery they look older than my mother. Can we please have naturally pretty & unique looking models like Gemma Ward, Irina Lazareanu and Kate Moss back svp. All the girls these days look like carbon copies and when will lip fillers become “last year”… this year please? Okay I’m done.
I absolutely adore a circus inspired theme. Jeremy Scott took the circus theme both literally and as a diluted inspiration for his Moschino Spring 2019 collection which showed at Los Angeles Menswear fashion week. The last dress reminds me of one of my favourite ever dresses, the Miu Miu circus inspired dress from 2008, which I highlighted in this blog post here. Additionally, that pocket watch bag is so very Alice in Wonderland, which even though it’s been done to death is still one of my favourite childhood stories.
