longing for spring

One of my favorite spring collections was by Phillip Lim, I found the color palette to be absolutely gorgeous. The milkshake colors (many call them sorbet, which just isn’t the adequate term in my opinion) also appeared in several other collections, e.g. Acne, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry.

I love that lilac and mint are coming back and light blue goes with pretty much anything. Can’t wait to add a few soft hues to my closet.

Versace for H&M

The highly anticipated Best of Versace collection for H&M finally had it’s presentation, or shall I say spectacle, in New York and everyone was invited: Celebrities, fashionistas, bloggers – Uma Thurman, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, as well as Elin Kling and Bryan Boy on the blogger side, just to name a few. I guess people who have the most influence on the potential costumer. Watching the video of the show I felt like the entire cast of Gossip Girl was sitting in the front row.

Honestly, I loved the trailer for the collection – but this is about clothes. There seems to have been a huge amount of effort put in to promoting a collection, which frankly does not knock me off my socks. Sure it’s glamourous, there’s a lot of bling and bold prints. Yet it seems dated and weirdly inconsistent.

The lookbook is good – the picture with the two blondes has a creepy vibe to it, which I like. Plus, there’s Abbey Lee Kershaw – who looks good in anything, let’s face it.

I’m very curious to see these clothes hanging on the racks of a crowded H&M – I think that will cost them their glamour factor. And how many people can pull off tropical prints and all-over studs? We shall wait and see.
