Oh, the street tough kiddos have grown up, got good jobs, and decided to wear flame retardant clothing in a fashionable way. Or, it’s Donna Karan’s Fall collection or something. Things are looking bleak and cold in the not too distant future of grim, sweat, and tears.
I have a bitter sweet relationship with the Fall fashion shows. I love looking at the fashions, but I will never be able to afford any of these fabulous frocks. However, upon gazing at DvF’s Fall ready to wear collection, I gasped with joy. I’m not sure how many people heard me making this noise at my cubicle, but it was definitely audible.
The collection ranges from moody, romantic 70’s diva to graphic and peppy working gal. Every piece could easily find its way into your closet. There’s literally no piece that you could not snatch off one of those model’s bodies and slip onto before your dinner date with that hipstery cheese expert from the wine bar.
What’s not to love about Robert Rodriguez? He makes women look hot and sexy. I don’t think anything else needs to be said. This collection had a futuristic look with a lot of hard angles, exaggerated silhouettes, and minimal color. It’s not the most vibrant Spring collection, but it doesn’t have to be.
