london calling

leather, over embelishment and carefully crafted holed t-shirts have all become synonymous with christophe decarnin's designs for balmain. the spring 2011 collection was no different- an army of 21st century punk clad in safety pin covered corsets, zippered leather cigarette pants and ripped fishnets graced the runway. i'd be lying if i said i wasn't a proponent of balmainia but i'm tempted to ask...why pay top dollar for something that's so DIY?

softly speaking

if it wasn't already apparent i have a fondness for helmut lang...what i love most is their constant and undeniable ability to create effortless attire. case in point- the spring 2011 collection which evoked a soft, airy mood with looser silhouettes and a lighter color palette. perfectly slouched jackets paired with draped maxi skirts, sheer textured sweaters in shades of taupe and nude and that white on white short suit (that i want to live in) all with a sense of understated sexiness.
