Hi Tavi! I read your blog everyday so I'm gonna comment today! I was just wondering, what do you think about FUR in fashion? Anna Wintour wears it, and many designers use it. Stella McCartenay doesn't though, but what do YOU think?

olivias-pizzaz said...

I like it a lot!

what did you think about balenciaga? personally I liked fall better than spring just a tad bit. Im not sure why though! I think it's because i like the shoes and the pastels...

Sam said...

HARSH!

The Style Revolution said...

I like the collection though stripes can be hard for some to wear.

Tavi said...

Sam-It wasn't supposed to be bad! Just showing how a look can be updated.

Art fanatic eeeek-Personally I only wear fur if it's vintage. That's all I can say on the matter for now, I'm always forming new opinions on it..

Rosie said...

These colors are GEERAAATE!

Emma said...

I did not really like the spring collection. It seemed to "Him" if that makes sense. I found that the shapes are kind of used each season. The spring collection is much better. The color block looks much better on the fabrics for fall. Balenciaga, in my opinion, needs to expaned -- but then I guess you could say that about any brand. Balmain (always gettin' on this house's case) really needs to branch out, the same collection over and over? Please!! This is a simple, yet clever post. I like how you compared the two. WHICH one is your favorite out of the two? Happy Fashion week/month!

Ross said...

It seems like a lot of "Spring" collections got confused with "Fall" collections. like Rodarte's, or this one.

WendyB said...

Icy pastels are generally not for me....

bravegrrl said...

love the colors.... love the shoes and definitely like looking at something that isn't black

Emilie said...

This is definitely an update, same awesome rectangular graphics and sweet color combos but I also love the new colors. Sometimes when something works and still feels fresh there's no need to make drastic changes

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

love the unexpected color combinations!!! The third one is my favorite!

zoomslow said...

Hey Tav,

Nice picture heading the article below - certainly illustrates the fast paced nature of your trip! I'd title it, "Kawakubo Dreaming" :-P Regarding The Virgin Suicides - you should have a look at the movie 'Picnic At Hanging Rock' - or at least some pictures from it... And thanks for answering the person's question about your theatre work so comprehensively _ I shall check out some of these productions that you've seen fit to lend your significant talents to! ;-)

P.S I think the article was well written. It captures nicely where you were at at the time.

This palette is so refreshing yet defined. Love the touch of black that divides the silhouette.

I love how you did the side-by-side comparison. The color scheme is incredible refreshing! I'm not sure which collection I liked better, though. They're both fantastic (especially in terms of shoes! haha)

Like fresh sorbet on a dreary winter day.

And I must have the electric teal shoooz.

Rondell said...

Mother of Style said...

I liked the intensity of the colors.

I think I would like that for this spring even- who wnats to wait for Fall???

Eléonore said...

I love the colours. ANd the shoes. Look at the grey ones. Fab! http://stylespotterfashionblogger.blogspot.com

Hugo Hase said...

I like that color palette of Balenciaga. The pastels are perfect for spring/summer. I also like the pastel looks at Burberry Prorsum.

What I liked most in that collection are the colored leather trousers!

SummerTeeth said...

that first dress kiiiiiiills me. one fell swoop done done. i'm pretty sure it has a industrial-like bronze fatty zipper going on in the back, too. better yet. love

ourbittle said...

Balenciaga fall is so beautiful!! I'm so happy to see that you posted on this collection because it's so noteworthy! The pretty pale colors juxtaposed to the solid angularity is such a distinctive, interesting idea.

fashion nugget said...

shit, posts like this make me so pumped for spring. and force me to become a college football player, and use words like 'pumped' but whatevs, balenciaga is forever cool.

Beth said...

Yes, the colours are perfect. Especially the mint greens. I'm a huge Balenciaga fan. I love all the akward shapes in the shoulders. Amazing.

Ami said...

Dear Tavi,

The colors are beautiful but the look of stripes...It kind of reminds me of a glitch. A very colorful easter egg themed glitch with the stripes. The look also looks very hard to pull off. Not everyone can wear stripes like that. It feels new, fresh, and updated, just something I wouldn't prefer. That's my opinion though.

Your blog as always is full of exciting fresh new things and very fashionable indeed.

If you could so ever kindly visit? If anyone could ever so kindly visit?

It's funny that so many people post you a comment! I mean, your famous! That must feel great! Well after all it must be annoying to read all the comments. But you would be crazy if you would do that, there are simply too much comments! ><
By the way, you should post a outfit again! Those are the nicest on your whole blog!

Khanh said...

I can't explain why neither, but I prefer this season than the spring one. The whole collection was particularly interesting with the interpretation of the quilted fabrics, the introduction of "graphic paper" as a pattern, quite surprising to me.

Though, I'm still disappointed by this show. He keeps exploding the same futuristic, sci-fi universe, all the time.
I was surprised by the 2009 fall collection because he stepped out from his comfort zone. I would like to Nicolas Ghesquière making some real new research, experimentations.

Antonella said...

orange and turquoise!! the perfect combination!!! but those legss!!! jeezes!! so skinny its really not normal anymore :s

Sammi said...

I love the pastels!

firefly said...

True- the style and shape is something that has been used before, but the colors gives it a fresh OMG-I-want-right-now-I-dont-wanna-be-stuck-in-snow kind of imagery. Like candy floss (or cotton candy, either way), sunny balconies and liquorice allsorts. With black sequins.

You know?

TAVI! I read your blog all the time and I think it is so, incredibly awesome. You are so mature and hilarious and it is such a great blog. If you ever get a chance, check out my blog! Also, I always see that you're wearing some really awesome tights that are torn up. Who is the designer? Thanks!

The Photodiarist said...

Not crazy about this collection . . .

I love it when designers have fun with color-especially because wearing bright clothes always makes me feel so much more bright and cheerful! bottom left=love.

Oh my God! Your reference to Snood was rediculous! I used to play that all the time in university when I should have been studying. You just seriously brightened my day. Amazing. Plus thats a pretty bang on comparison to the futuristic oxfords you were displaying. Double amazing.

Thanks
Mara

"Spring color palettes updated to something that feels so right right now.
" YES YES YES YES YES!!!! EXACTLY! OMG I couldn't put it in better words. This will probably seem weird, whacky, perhaps even creepy, but when i saw those looks on your page, and then that sentence, it felt like the whole world came together, everything is where it needs to be. It perfected my night. With this I shall head to bed. WOW

Ooh! That last look, with the blue? Straight up technicolor Tippi Hedren magic!

Margaret said...

I hate to sound like all those annoying people that do this.. But the model in the last outfit? Her legs are WAAYY too skinny. It's creepy. The outfit is really cool.. But I can't stop looking at her spider legs!

Rondell said...

I be with you Margaret. That white girl need to get sheself a sandwich.

VioletYoshi said...

I don't understand the grey suit with words outfit. The way the top is shaped, makes the model look like Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog, weird.
