AND AS USUAL, HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF…
BACK IN THE DAY
It’s nice to see designers having a good time with fashion. Often I find the industry can take the subject far too seriously, and in trying times, it’s relieving to bring a since of humor to the table. And though there’s frequently the conception that clowns are scary, (which I do not disagree with one bit!) that added quality only makes it all the more intriguing.
From the heavily blue eye-shadowed sparkly lady at Louis Vuitton, to Stella McCartney’s bold and playful prints, to Marni’s crafty take, to Roksanda Ilincic’s Ronald McDonald inspired getup, designers are certainly upping the silliness factor, but in a way that works for the modern woman. I’m hoping once Fall Fashion week comes, (just two weeks away!) we see lots more of this clownish trend!
London based designer Roksanda Ilincic has only been showing at fashion week since 2008, but she’s certainly made a place for herself on the fashion front. What she showed us for Pre-fall 2012 was splendidly playful yet minimalist. The uncomplicated silhouettes have been infused with a strong dose of primary colors, creating a perfect balance of confined fun.
The second to last look is a fabulous updated version of what we can maybe say will be a Roksanda Ilincic classic.
