is this like a noxzema commercial or what?

I have nothing xmas-related to offer at the moment since this year has been a bit Charlie Browny, but I am, as always, thrilled to go on about fabrics that look like school supplies. Especially Cher Horowitz's school supplies.

Versus SS11 got me really excited about Christopher Kane's ways of making the line the perfect little sister to Versace. It's playful and not explicitly ~sensuale~ but includes nods to its birthmother (yeah, I just made Versace its big sister and birthmother, I guess it's Faye Dunaway in Chinatown) with neon bodycons. The prints might be some of my favorite of this season because they have a, for lack of better word and because I'm always making excuses to talk like Paula Deen, dollop of irony. Like, I just want them to cover my pencil cases and textbooks and the inside of my locker. And it wouldn't be bad to own them in clothes form, too.
Alex Prager, Adidas billboard, Kate and Naomi, Clueless, Versace SS94 by Steven Meisel, whatever, nails.

yay first comment!!

Christopher Kane is a godsend to Versus!!! He's really bringing a fresh perspective to the line...as well as good publicity! Really reinvigorated the brand

I love the Christopher Kane designs. Also, I've always been obsessed with Clueless.

I love Christopher Kane! In saying so, I quite like the re-emergence of this so called 'trend'. Cher had pretty alright style, just a tad less plaid and it's all good.

I love all the contrast going on in some combination's of fabric.
Small satchels and colours are perfection.

Davidikus said...

There is certainly something very pleasing about these prints! I rate Cristopher Kane far more than Versace (especially than Donatella's era!) although Versace jeans are fantastic.

Mina Jade said...

Wow - some of them are just as stick thin as me.
Naomi looks awesome, although I'm a bit angry with her. She did have a beautiful mane of thick curly hair (I have always wanted curly hair), and she had it straightened, by now she lost some of it. She looks better with her original curly hair.

Sabina said...

I love all the floral patterns in those photos. But... am I the only one who thinks the clothes in "Clueless" were absolutely awful? And having been in high school then I can also safely say no one dressed like that.

Now the clothes in "Jawbreaker"--those were cute!

ashford said...

the nails are so good, and surprisingly, I'm liking a lot of the elements from the Versus. Thanks for showing bc I probably wouldn't have sought it out (not a fan of Versace sensuale). Seems like it will be a trendsetting show.
