Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear: Osklen

“One year ago, I went to the Amazon forest and met the Asháninka tribe and was invited to their rituals,” said Metsavaht. “The whole collection is inspired by that experience.”
“The meaning of aesthetics is very important for them,” he said. “Beauty, for them, means strength and sensuality—for man or for woman. And that’s exactly what fashion is.” – via vogue.com

Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear: Monique Lhuillier

The makeup at Monique Lhuillier's show was refreshing to me with its graphic, rectangular eyeliner in bright blue or green! I also felt that it complemented the clothing very well (this was also my first go at hand lettering, it was fun).

Garland's goal was to inject a feeling of freshness into Lhuillier's made-for-the-red-carpet collection: "When you're younger, you tend to be a lot more brazen, so I was thinking, how do we portray youth in makeup?" she said. "It's bolder; it's brasher; you take risks—that's why I went for chunky, clunky, thick liner." elle.com

Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear: Junya Watanabe

"For Fall, the designer wanted to explore the idea of "dimensionality through clothing." And it is that place where mathematics and nature meet—in a certain soft yet rigorous organic architecture—that was at the crux of today's show." – via vogue.com

The weather still feels like summer, but I'm looking forward to pulling out my scarves, coats, and boots again (not that the weather has entirely put me off the latter).

Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear: Yohji Yamamoto

"He mentioned wanting to create a collection for "real girls today," which, antithetically, meant thinking back centuries to ancient Greece and the idea that a draped piece of fabric could be simultaneously complete and incomplete. Then he set out to render the kimono less perfect, softening its rigidity while guarding the overall shape and elegant sleeves." – via style.com
