So Far....


Once again, ADAM is fantastic. I first wrote about the label here, and Im proud to say Im still in love with the garments Adam Lippes put out. Bravo, brava. I would wear everything here, from the pretty pink trousers, to the shiny shirts, black blazers, navy men shirt dresses, and pink bustier tops. Please Adam Lippes, may I have those navy silken pants in the bottom second to the left picture? Ill write a poem for you!
Adam, oh Adam,
May I have those dear pants, Adam
I have slaved, and written, Adam
Posts about your clothes, Adam
And all I ask, oh Adam,
Is that I receive a pair of trousers in return, oh Adam,
Because I would wear them, oh Adam,
Everyday, oh Adam,
In every way, oh Adam,

And they would make my heart soar, oh Adam.


Id never heard of Koi before this, but I guarantee that by next year Koi Suwannagate will be a household name. And Im only half joking. I loved all of this. The cigarette pants were especially gorgeous because they had cashmere running up both sides of the legs "to make you look slimmer" Genius.

I was really dissapointed with Alexander Wang. The few images above were the only ones I liked, and truthfully only a few of the selected ones above would I actually want to buy.... I just thought Id put this here and say I didnt like Alexander Wang this collection. It was too dark, I expected a more playful, rather than serious, tone.

I'm kind of disappointed with the Wang too. The blazers in the Adam collection are wonderful.

I felt like a lot of other collections looked like old A Wang... a little underwhelmed by him for fall, but I can totally see these looks blowing up still. Koi I really loved, along with Threeasfour. They use fabrics really well!

I definitely agree with you on AW. I was disappointed with it until it got towards the end when the whites came out. I appreciated all the textures he threw in with black, but it felt a lot like what everyone is already wearing now.

Still want the handbags, though. We'll see come next fall.

I like your poem :]
heehee

I love those trousers too, they are simply amazing!

Though I didn't like Alexander Wang's collection as much as in years past, those cutout pant/legging/things are completely awesome...as is the white shredded dress.

Also, would you mind sharing your tools of trade of the beautiful sidebar you've made? I'm trying to spice up mine a bit and am not very good-scracth that, incapable-at trying to play with the html code. My blog address is www.prettyexquisite.blogspot.com

Any advice would be much appreciated :-)

I'm not a big ADAM fan, but I love that red jacket. I did really like the Koi Suwannagate collection. The details on the sleeves of the top middle outfit are epic.

Jessica said...

Ambroisine said...

Of all those designers my fav is Adam.. I love the shiny top and the grey cardigan, the blazers are awesome too !!

Lauren said...

What you said about Wang, SO true, everyone else has been reviewing it as, 'he's outdone himself again', but I'm like, I don't see any magic to it all. haha.

bar a couple of things i do not see anything special at all in wangs collection. infact it looks to me to be an obvious hybrid of last seasons jil saunder and margiela... i really do not understand the hype :|

Elena said...

Thank god, I thought I was the only one who was dissapointed by Alexander Wang's collection!

Lisa said...

Your poem for ADAM was too cute! I agree, Wang was a disappointment. A lot of those pieces can easily be DIYed.

roxanne said...

hah, fantastic poem! i think you'll be receiving those pants very soon. finally someone who isn't afraid to call mr. wang out for a lovely and well-crafted collection that nevertheless misses its mark in several spots.

The Clothes Horse said...

Wang bores me.
I could totally see you rocking those navy silky pants!

forfashion said...

i thought wang was too stark. I don't like white on top of black. I prefer more toned down contrasts, if that makes any sense...

Love the dark red tights from ADAM. need to get some of those...

Alice X said...

i love what you said about the collections. koi was definately excellent, i love her floral adornments and i thought alex wang was okay but i'm seriously sick of all his hype. i see balmain everywhere though. everywhere.

I love alexander wang and I do love black, but I wasn't very excited about this either. It's too classic for me;) And a bit boring ^^

Koi was amazing ^^ I love the shoes and the pants<3

BTW I adore your blog you have a great sense for fashion!

Lara said...

woww! I love alexander wang! :)

The styling at Wang wasn't so hot, and all of the pieces were hit or miss, but the hits were HITS IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. The cut-out leggings = so hot. Karlie's furry vest = so hot. The white shredded tops = SO HOT.

O said...

Totally agree! I was hoping for fireworks with Wang, and I feel like it was less than good...maybe next season!

Hmm.. I think I'd have to agree. I do love A.Wang and I'll always love pieces from his lines, but I was a bit disappointed as well -- perhaps I'd hope he'd have more new, visionary pieces. Something new and exciting.

I heart ADAM, I really do. And it's kind of nice to see someone feature a more "pedestrian" (? shall I say?) designer. He really has an incredible fit and he's really quite interesting, too, I feel.

Lovin' the Koi collection the most. Looks like something I'd wear everyday. Most of Adam's pieces are great as well.
