Here is the first look at a Stefano Pilati’s tote for the sixth YSL Manifesto.
Two thousand of these totes will be handed out—free of charge—in New York next Tuesday, February 16th. Similar drops will follow in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Berlin. Photos of Natalia Vodianova in the Spring 2010 collection by the photography duo, Inez and Vinoodh are in the Manifesto, giving you a little something extra with the totes. Look out for these must-haves on the fashionable corners.
Viktor and Rolf took this recession cutting back thing literally.
Only the brave and fashion forward can pull off any of the looks from Viktor & Rolf Spring’10 collection. Doing “The Simple Thing” is not what Viktor & Rolf are known for, season after season they give us something besides safe.
NYC is where the trends start, we’re suppose to give London, Milan and Paris reasons to get nervous and revamp their fashion collections because This City sets the bar high. I know we’re feeling the recession in NYC, but isn’t that a reason to step up and create pieces that will make us WANT to buy a dress that $500?
Somehow New York based designers got lazy and gave us safe pieces that really didn’t have any “double take” factor to them. Bright colors could barely be found and designers were being selfish with prints and daring silhouettes. The bar was put down, giving London the responsibility of pushing it back up.
It started with Duro Olowu and Erdem who hits you with prints and bright colors with makes you wish that you could buy their pieces now. My fashion high started and seeing Burberry Prorsum’s collection just made it tough to stop looking. Draping a trench, “what the…”, my fashion brethren, you know what that is?! New York was quickly forgotten and London’s designers showed us that their sleepy city should not be taken for granted.
Before the end of this week, we’ll see if Milan will keep this spring fix going and if Paris will finalize the trends we should look forward to.
