*cries into sleeve*
*realises it's close to 30 degrees celsius and I'm not wearing sleeves*
But you can't blame me, most of my friends are either:
- on their big OE somewhere far, far away
- still living on the other side of the world (stranger danger)
So I've been reading articles, having a blast on Pinterest and making random crap out of old things. And eating too much piccalilli for some reason (which I call Piccadilly... which is a place... whatever).
Luckily my friends will be coming back soooooooon because university is just around the corner. (Hello Orientation Week parties... I'm not 18 though... DAMMIT!)
In fashion news, Spring Couture 2013 has been and gone. Second only to the Spring Ready to Wear collections, the Spring Couture collections are by far my favourite part of the fashion year.
The most anticipated show for me, and pretty much everyone else, was without a doubt, Christian Dior. I was excited to see what Raf Simon’s had lined up for his debut Spring Couture collection.
The result was what appeared to be very much a continuation of his first couture collection last fall. Simons once again presented a collection heavily influenced by the early Dior archives. There was a great emphasis on the shapes and structures of the garments, rather than the prints. Waists were nipped in tightly to encourage the appearance of an hourglass form. It was a highly flattering and very wearable range of garments, in particular the cigarette pants which featured prominently throughout the collection.
I wasn't in love with the collection, it's not my taste, however that's not to say it wasn't a mind blowing success. From a business perspective, I can see it selling incredibly well. Dior Spring Couture 2013 will be all over the red carpets this year. Raf's a clever man.
