Fashion weeks – what i’ve liked so far

Tegelikult tuleks sõna “liked” asendada sõnaga “loved”, sest senini on olnud niiiiii palju esemeid, mis mulle meeldisid, aga ma kavatsen nendest sheerida vaid osa ehk neid disainereid, kelle kollektsioonid kui tervikud mind ahhetama panid. Kuna moenädalate saaga on jõudnud poole peale, siis on õige aeg teha pisikesed kokkuvõtted. Ma alustan (loogiliselt võttes) NYC moenädalaga ning esimesed kolm lemmikkollektsiooni pärinevad disaineritelt Reed Krakoff, Rad Hourani ja Prabal Gurung. Eelmisel aastal pidime koolis tegema presentatsiooni vabalt valitud noorest moeloojast ning selle põhjal kavandama paberil oma kollektsiooni. Mina valisin Rad Hourani. Presentatsiooni tegemine eeldab ilmselgelt pisikest uurimustööd, tänu millele hakkasin Rad Hourani loomingut palju rohkem hindama kui varem. Sain aru, et tegemist on tõeliselt andeka kujuga ning tema disain on täpselt minu maitsele: edgy, sharp, futuristlik ja konkreetne. Ja alates sellest ajast saati vaatan tema uusi kollektsioone hoopis teise pilguga ning pean mainima, et nüüdseks on temast saanud üks nendest disaineritest, kelle uue kollektsiooni ootamine kõige enam ärevaks muudab. Igatahes, siin nad on, minu esimesed kolm lemmikut NYC moenädalalt.

Actually, the word “liked” should be replaced with “loved”, because there have been sooooo many wonderful pieces, but I’m only going to share my favourite collections with you. And by that I mean the collections where every single piece of clothing made me gasp. Let’s start with New York. Today I’ll share the spring 2011 collections of three extremely amazing designers: Reed Krakoff, Rad Hourani, and Prabal Gurung. I once made a school presentation about Rad Hourani and had to draw a collection inspired by his designs, so I also had to do a little research. Of course I had seen his collections before, but the research made me really appreciate his talent and I got to know much more about the background of his designs (that’s why it’s necessary to actually KNOW something about fashion – pictures don’t tell you everything). And he hasn’t disappointed me since (well, I’m no Suzy Menkes or Anna Wintour whose approvals actually mean something, but I gotta tell you – I’m not easy to please). So here they are, my first three favourites from New York fashion week.
