Fall vs Spring

when i was browsing through the latest spring modern sale at bukowskis (they really bring me endless amounts of joy, that auction house) i was quite taken by all the beautiful flower still life pieces. i thought back to how some of my favourite collections from the autumn 2011 shows…

a/w details

with every collection that comes out i find myself focusing more on the details. the hair & lips at galliano, the geometric prints at hermes, retro wood at celine, everything seventies at chloé, chunky knits at stella mccartney, playful sunnies & ice cream colours at tsumori chisato and the dark…
