I find it so interesting when you think you know yourself, you’re counting on something but it turns out differently. I was thinking whether this is inner our external effect?
I said a few posts before that Italian designs are the furthest from my personal style. They were too much for me. Too much color, print, material, detail, too much everything. And now I’m just falling from an awe to another. Is this because I’m older now, and you know people are changing or because that’s fashion world’s effect on me? Or have these things met just the right place and time? Maybe I’ll never know. But I’m welcoming it.
It’s pretty interesting that I think I’m attached to my comfort zones way too much and then this change is happening so unnoticeably. So pleasantly. It’d be so good to feel this all the time. Hmmm….
But back to the collection what brought these thoughts out of me. It was rather a process though, but it definitely crystallized after seeing this one.
So what do I like here? First of all that nice feeling of nostalgia. I remember I used to have pantaloons like those one on the very first picture (in color mustard :)) back in the ’90s (I’m definitely getting older I guess). Secondly the cuts. Those beautifully cut, high waist skirts, pants and that coat with big contrasting buttons. The long sleeves and those loose shirts. Lastly the colors. Earthy colors mixed with primary colors like blue and red. What could I say? I’m in awe again.
I’m curious what I’ll be feeling during Paris Fashion Week because that was my absolute, all time favorite (so far?). Curious, very curious indeed.
