just tryin to tell it like it is

I am normally not very into Burberry at ALL but they killed it this season. Especially by perfecting the awkward diaper curtain Balenciaga AW 09 skirt (not as a knockoff, but as a way better version of a drapey skirt):

I like the color combo in the las one a lot.

christopher did a knotted silk dress for a/w08 (my favorite prorsum collection) i think that was more an expansion/reimagining of that idea and less knockin ghesquiere but i totally see where you're coming from.

Tavi said...

oh no I didn't mean they're knockoffs, just a way better drapey skirt! That dress you linked to is BEAUTIFUL though.

Faux Naif said...

vair vair true. the colours are so pretty and light and silky! but i'm a bit pissed off at the whole strong shoulder thing. i mean, really burberry? YOU TOO? *le sigh*

somewhatsuburban said...

I don't really get the Burberry feel out of it. Still, it looks pretty freakin awesome! Hooray for that!

ElasticHeart said...

Yes, indeed, it does not resemble Bulberry in the least. Still, it is quite wonderful!

sanderbr said...

splendid
some of my favourite outfits from FW so far.....
p.s Tavi your awsome

lovelylissy said...

AGREED it was rather brill wasn't it!!!!

Jess said...

yes! i completely agree.

ipopheart said...

oh that link above to the dress IS very perfect! Agreed... I feel like balenciaga's skirt was far more awkward (not in a pretty sense) and burberry just made it a little prettier

annie cat said...

pure gorgeousness!!!

adrienne said...

yessss they definitely killed it with the draping!

MAISON CHAPLIN said...

I love the collection too, for sure one of the best of the entire LondonFW ;)

Sarah Kate said...

I'd have to agree.
I've already seen some pretty good DIY projects on a couple of the skirts!

P.s. I like your little profile pic, who did it for you?
I'm trying to find as many artists as I can!

i AGREE WITH tAVI!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Disagree completely. The Balenciaga silk draped skirts DID look half awkward on the models, however, in editorials, it rocked the socks off Obama. Ever seen Georgia May Jagger wear it? Absolutely exquisite.


I found burberry messy until the very end when it started to get very very beautiful, about the time the silver sparkles came in (matching Emma Watson's gold dress she wore to the show). Before that it got diaper-like, and accentuated womens hips in a bad way.

Taryn said...

Burberry was actually one of my fav collections for S/S '10. I loved the drapey knotted shoulders too :)

Emily said...

burberry was DEFINITELY incredible. i concur :)

fatwhoreface said...

Okay well, let me just say that I am in love with you.
I haven't read your blog until now, but I've heard of you.
And you, are amazing.
Yeah.
That's it.
Marry me?
Wait no.. That's creepy.
..Yeah.

The Stylemaster said...

I totally noticed that too. Burberry wins in the draped skirt battle, hands down

50two said...

different but not better?

Soren Lorensen said...

I love the diapers

but not the shiny diapers so much

I want to see a lace diaper of cream colour that looks I am wearing a cloud

Lucy-Jane said...

I like it too
BUT OMG THOSE MODELS ARE SO PAINFULLY SKINNY. Is the diaper for their laxitives?

[ StrawberiiStarz ] said...

I want...the yellow dress, so bad. It is beautiful~!!

I love the pastel yellow color, the way the fabric folds. The thin black belt is a nice middle piece. Her scrunched socks and heels go great with the dress. I just love the whole outfit. :)

SO. said...

honestly, burberry can DO NOOOOOO WRONG!!!

AHHH DRAPEY SKIRTS! BURBERRY!

zoomslow said...

i like the last one a lot! the tailored looking shoulders must have been tricky with the silky fabric - but looks gr8. the colours work well, and are well balanced - and most of all the diaper skirt here takes on more of an Arabian Nights look (whilst not going too far with it) :-))

calivintage said...

yeah, dude. seriously, who knew? i never look twice at burberry, but now i'm thinking about drapey skirts. hm, i think i need to get out my sewing kit...

Chloe said...

Oh, loves it.

Miss Molly said...

Awesome!

Burberry is LOVE!
i adore these skirts!

LadyGaga said...

The clothes are fine. I just like Sonia Rykiel and Jean Paul Gaultier better.

Roland said...

I think, dear Tavi, that you are a fake, just like the little JT Leroy was.
But it's so hard to get noticed nowadays, isn't it ?

Barima said...

The fabrics and colours have a mostly lustrous quality that I like. The diaper curtain skirts are a touch hit and miss and the designs could all have stood to be slightly higher waisted ala Vision in Blue in photo no. 3 (and photo no. 6)

Seasonally speaking, it's on target

Eline said...

I've always loved Burberry Men though! It makes me wish I were a man, with broad, strong shoulders... sigh! Especially the 2008 bright colour collection, ommgggg. Oh to have a boyfriend that's fashion conscious and is not afraid to wear whatever he wants!

Hello Tavi,

As you love thrift stores I wondered if you might be able to add some of your favourites to our interactive googlemap. I'm trying to get loads of vintage/thrift stores all on one big map so that they're easily searchable by users.

Make sense? Here's the map:

Angeles Almuna Design said...

I agree! but something is missing in this collection.....mmmmmmmm

Isabel said...

Burberry, Balenciaga... Y'know what? They're both pretty rad.

O Whit said...

I love every piece that is shown here! abso fab.

Jen Koehl said...

Tavi! This is Jen from fredflare.com! We are so head over heels for you! We just posted a blogginz about you... Here's the link! I would LOVE to do an interview so PLEASE email me with your contact info! (A photo shoot in our future, perhaps?) Here's the link to the cute lil post we did on you: http://www1.fredflare.com/blog/?p=4549

Pearl Bhasin said...

Hell yeah!

Lauren said...

I like that light cream dress. That is something I would wear.

misspollyhadadolly said...

I couldn't fault with the Burberry collection AT ALL! That sparkling coat towards the end was amazing, as soon as I saw the photo of Emma Watson arriving at the show in that gold dress, I knew it was going to be stunning.

I've had a post of my own on it too...take a look :)

Also, that Balenciaga skirt looks alot more elegant I think, but preferring the heavy knots of Bailey :)

Chloë said...

Burberry can do no wrong in my eyes! Christopher kills it every season

Adriancito said...

okok

nicc said...

I agree with one of your past statments that fashion like this is an art. Have to admire they way each fold in the skirt/fabirc is like the stroke of a pencil. The fabric chosen also gave it such a smooth feeling to each crease in the outfit. And the shadows even look good too!
Makes me so giddy.

Beth said...

See I always love Burberry but I agree that they completely nailed it this collection.
Love the pastel colours and the sequins!

Rosie said...

I'm not a big fan of Burberry, but i definitely agree on the skirt thing. Oh yeah, please read my post on my blog... i have a question for you :)

You are very cool. I wish I were like u when I was 13.

Kathy said...

Hi there... This may seem weird, but I find your Blog amazing! Weird, because I am a 51 year old woman In south central Missouri, and I know not a thing about fashion. I just srarted reading your Blog, and I can't stop. It has really fired my imagination, even though I have no idea who or what most of it is about. I think it appeals to me because I am a flower gardener, and a Polymer Clay jewelry artist. I guess we all create art in our own way.
Please continue to follow your dreams. Just remember that these years you are at home, are the best ones for trying your wings...when you don't have to work a real job.
Kathy

ania said...

Oh, I love this collection.

And Kathy^ ?

You totally made me laugh.

"It has really fired my imagination, even though I have no idea who or what most of it is about.

Fascinating people hang out in Ms. Style Rookie's comment section.

Vicki said...

I like them all except the pale pink one near the end the way its folded and draped at the crotch kind of makes it look like a front wedgey.. or is that just me? lol

Sher said...

As a Mommy, I can appreciate the someone who knows how to do up a diaper. The ones on the right look like my rookie days LOL!

Miri said...

No,keep the diapers, they remind me of my childhood!

Keep your style it reminds me of who I am.

Keep your pen and this blog, it makes me smile a lot more!

bisous Miri

FND said...

Im behind you here. Great skirts!!

A Beautiful Party said...

gorgeous!
hey, have you ever seen Picnic at Hanging Rock? I think you would like the fashions happening in that movie.

neutral* said...

congratulations, i love it!
you're so cute :x bye bye
kisses :*

bray said...

i totally agree. sometimes the execution of that drapey effect is way overdone, but that line is perfect in my eyes :) your awesome, chick!

♥ bray

LuxiRare said...

Nicholas Ghesquiere was known to straight up take Kaisik Wong and literally copy it verbatim (visually) for his runway collection.

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/09/nyregion/is-copying-really-a-part-of-the-creative-process.html?pagewanted=all

I'm not sure where the references for this collection came from but you never know, he might have ripped the whole "window drapes on your thighs" thing too.

Alison said...

It's nice to see them getting away from the 'chav' tag they had a few years ago but honestly - that looks a little too like nappies that need changing for my liking and so unkind to a woman with any kind of hips!

Judy said...

Nice pictures, I think that it was a great show, really "phénoménal".

Ore* said...

Yup the skirts are perfection

http://lipstickboudoir.blogspot.com/

x's

Teffy said...

yeah i realised that too as soon the Burberry show started .. but they both look great in diferent senses
bissou!

Natalia Sepulveda said...

Way too similar for my liking... but I do agree, Burberry did it better. To be honest with you and I know this will come back to haunt me... I thought this collection of Balenciaga was quite ugly.

FND said...

was just wondering whether Balenciaga skirts could have been inspired by the dhotis that Indian men wear.

http://www.upasana.in/files/Dhoti.jpg

it's almost like a mini dhoti if such things could exist

Heather said...

ooooooo i love these! i really want to go out, but some of this material, and make an amazing draped dress like these. :)

Renee Clayton said...

Just because the draping is awesome and well done, doesn't make it right--Still looks like a diaper.

emily said...

I like colorful clothes

Mrs.Dinosaur said...
