Ive been looking at the shows everyday for about 3 weeks straight now and its been such a mixed bag in terms of what I like and what I didnt. Here are my favorite looks from the Spring Summer 2009 runways so far, bearing in mind Lanvin is on Sunday so hopefully Alber will do me proud and trump all designers so far.
This has to be my ultimate image for the season, Raquel Zimmermann at Proenza Schouler. I just love this look and the bare midriff has to be the cut of the season, it was everywhere but this is definatly the best I've seen it executed.
Siri Tollerød at Fendi. Fendi really suprised my this season. I love their colour pallette and their attention to fabrication. Siri looks amazing here also, love the hair. Dont like the shoes though.Jourdan Dunn at Rodarte. I just think the colours in this dress are unlike anything else. Really beautiful. Plus Jourdan has shot right up in my favorite models this season.
As much as I dislike Gareth Pugh and his samey work, he suprised me this season. I don't love the entire collection but there are some elements here and there that I like. I think some looks looked poorly constructed but this look modeled by Magdalena Frackowiak is pretty well executed and well styled.
Overall Ive not been as impressed with the SS09 as I have been in previous years however Paris is still going on at the minute so I'll make up my mind at the end of the week.
