Wacky or just plain tacky?
N.Y. fashion week continues. Betsey Johnson is one of those designers who's pieces I absolutely adore or hate. Unfortunately the latter seems to be the best verb to describe how I feel about her S/S 09 pieces. The bowler hat is about the only lovable thing about her creations this time.
I also checked out what the much awaited Marc by Marc Jacobs had in store for us. Well, I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Everything was very sporty and sort of blah. We have seen this so many times on the runway, Marc! The dresses looked like they were fitted to make the models at least three sizes larger which I doubt to be the intention of any great fashion designer (or every woman's nightmare as Michael Kors on Project Runway might say).
I guess I have to give all props to Alexander Wang this year. He was the only one with a fresh angle and something new to offer (OK, the Rag & Bone was pretty good too but they are not a major name). I have to admit though, that spring looks have never been my favorite, so this might have a slightly negative effect on my views. But just slightly. ;)
