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 ;)
bumper fashion special #25! the secret squirrel & ruby autumn/winter 2010 collections are so amazing, i almost can’t wait for colder weather.
a mid-week bumper fashion special that is dedicated to everything nautical (i’m on holiday by the sea, give me a break)
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
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.
bumper fashion special #19 – i’m interested to see what direction things are going to go next, feel that the rock / studded look is getting played a lot (even though… i love it)
bumper fashion special #17 – all the spring shows are starting to blur into one, will pick up with more ‘normal’ fashion specials next week!
