NYFW Trend : Shorts.

Posted in Uncategorized by modman on March 26, 2010

Dont call them Bermuda shorts! Think of them as.. oversized and loose. These shorts are fall trends that you can get now, especially since the weather has been fairly warm during the past week. The thicker cottons and textured wools will keep you warm from the nighttime chill, making these shorts perfect to go from day to night!

3.1 Phillip Lim, ADAM, Juan Carlos Obando, Karen Walker

Richard Chai Love, Mulberry, Michael Kors, Reed Krakoff

Dont you love the color schemes? There are so many rich colors for fall.. which I’m loving much more than soft, pastel hues that dominate spring.. weird. We’ll see how long this lasts! Enjoy your shorts and try and get some sun at the beach or at a pool this weekend! It should be around 80 degrees in el yay! :]

Some Color, Please.

I came back from snowy and cold New York to rainy and dreary LA. Not complaining since its still warmer here, but I need some color in my life.  I cant wait to see all the oranges, blues, purples and greens that I’ve seen in fall collections to hit the streets.. or at least the stores. It would be lovely to walk through Bergdorfs or Saks and see these ADAM, Costello Tagliapietra, Doo.Ri or Carolina Herrera pieces. Stunning.

More color and more favorites coming soon!

Oh, and after looking through (almost) every collection from New York, I can honestly say that pictures do NO justice to these pieces WHATSOEVER. The whole experience, seeing each piece and how it flows and moves.. all of that is lost. Its a shame.. I’ve looked at all the collections that I went to and I am underwhelmed with the photographs because they dont capture the essence. Thankfully, though, more and more designers/design houses are livestreaming their shows and you can find videos online afterwards. Now onto schoolwork! Dont you love my priorities? 😛
