Christian Dior Spring 2013 RTW
Oh, hey guys… do you remember that 9/11 memorial created by Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli? You know, the one that looked like a certain part of the female anatomy? Well, probably not because it was banished to Bayone, NJ, but apparently Dior designer Raf Simmons hasn’t forgotten.
Jeremy Scott Spring 2013 RTW
Oh, how nice- it’s like National Geographic meets the dudes that wake me up each morning with their power drills.
Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 RTW
Looks like The Great Gatsby-meets-Elvira look is finally coming back into style, just in time for Halloween. Thank god, right?
Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 RTW
It’s no secret that Marc Jacobs was inspired by the divine Miss Edie Sedgwick for his latest collection, but was he also inspired by Tom Petty’s video for “Don’t Come Around Here No More”? I can only hope.
Anna Sui Spring 2013 RTW
And now, for the last installment of my mini-series of Parsons grads (representin’!), I bring you Miss Anna Sui. And yes, the Chinese porcelain look may have already been done by Rodarte in their Spring 2011 collection, but they never did it with the punk finesse that Anna has.
Alexander Wang Spring 2013 RTW
The interesting leg wear at Alexander Wang’s show reminded me of a zebra-like creature I once saw that only has stripes on its legs. Thanks to the magic of Google, I found out the animal is called an okapi and it’s actually most closely related to a giraffe. Therefore, I must thank you, Alexander Wang, for enhancing my zoological knowledge.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2013 RTW
The bottom layers of Prabal Gurung’s white ensemble initially reminded me of Chelsea Clinton’s Vera Wang wedding gown when examined closely, but I must admit, it was difficult to look past the dress’s red and white feathering that resembled the crabby contents of a California roll.
