once again testament to the fact that i love pretty clothes but don’t really know anything about the fashion world. why do the fashion designers reveal collections for an entire year ahead? i mean, pre-fall is technically the base of the fall collections, but the northern hemisphere is only starting to come out of their winter now (it’s not even SPRING there yet, so they still have 2 entirely different seasons to get through). yes so…. yes. don’t roll your eyes at me, fashion people! perhaps if you know better than me you could tell me why i ask such silly questions ;)
anyway this is kind of nice for us southern hemisphereans, since we’ll soon be pre-autumn (well, in march/april)
Diane Von Furstenberg:
bumper fashion special #25! the secret squirrel & ruby autumn/winter 2010 collections are so amazing, i almost can’t wait for colder weather.

you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here
herewith bumper fashion special #22…
lauren moffat spring/summer 2010:
probably the perfect summer collection

state of georgia:
stolen girlfriends club:
this is genevieve:
(step away from the wayfarers, people. we know you look cool in them, but let’s try something different)
he’s been in australia, so some summer coverage has slipped in
and for something slightly different, if you don’t follow café mode you really should – geraldine dormoy does an interesting series on the visual stylings in films she enjoys. her latest offering was american gigolo (which i haven’t seen because i don’t enjoy richard gere, but might have to rent now since it has the gorgeous lauren hutton in it). some stylish scenes….
woot toot toot jump on the mid week bumper fashion special train – #21 for those who are keeping count!
style sightings (perfect! just perfect)
katrin schacke (not really fashion but…. food from clothes! my two favourite things?)
bumper fashion special #20 (yoh!) it’s a very wintery weekend here, so i am appreciating some ofthe fall/winter stuff happening north of the border… still some great summery stuff making an appearance, though.
