just almost every women love shopping. actually i believe there is a specific area in the brain -or maybe heart- that stimulates the desire to acquire certain clothing items; put directly: to shop.
why i wrote "almost every women" is to exclude people, who get stressed out and bored while shopping, like my mom.
on the other hand i love every kind of shopping: shopping as we know it, window shopping, online shopping, shopping in a mall, shopping in street, in a bazaar...
even if i don't buy, i just love to look at clothes. it is like looking at some photographs that you like. the photographs that you are not in it, but love to be so.
today i looked at the 2011 S/S collections again, maybe for the 4th time. this time i picked out the ones that i liked the most.
3.1 Phillip Lim
i can't say that i loved the Phillip Lim's S/S 2011 collection as a whole. but these are the 2 looks that i liked.
what i really like in BCBG's collection was its sleek, chic and effortless looks. this dress was the one that i liked most.
i'm not really a burberry fan, except its trenchcoats which are true classic. however, this dress is one of my favorites in all S/S collections.
Celine is always simple and chic, but i don't really find it inspiring. yet, i wouldn't refuse a wardrobe full of it. from the S/S collection, these 2 looks were the ones i liked.
Chloe! oh i really love it. i can't really say that i'd wear all that Chloe puts up, but i have this thing for it. in every collection that Chloe creates, i find several pieces which i love love love. these 2 looks are in my favorites in all of this season's collections.
Diane Von Furstenberg
this one was the one that i liked most from the collection. but if i liked prints, i'd be DVF's #1 fan. she is the master of prints! colors, proportions, balance. and when i see a printed fabric of DVF, i can see her in it. that is the thing that defines an artist i believe; being able to see her/him in the work that comes out.
i'm not a big fan of Donna Karan. but this season i'm amazed by what she had put up.
yes i know the heterogeneous masculine-feminine blend is a hit this season, but balancing is the hard part which distinguishes between the designs. some like to be on the edges, but apparently Donna Karan likes to play in the middle. i liked it actually. i really did.
i'm looking forward to go shopping after these 3 looks.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana, italian. very italian indeed. this collection is consistent with the "real italian woman" obsession that D&G has, but there is something different about it. maybe it is because it is white and we don't see the loudness in the outfit.
i liked the white underwear thing going on.
i really find the collection bold and inspiring.
just as always. chic and feminine.
i have this gratuitous love for Erdem. and i like it when i like his collection.
Fendi! i like every collection it puts up. don't even need to talk about it. just great!
i like masculine looks. i can't be that bold and use more than a few masculine pieces, but that doesn't mean that i do not like it. i'd like to try it if i dare.
i like the lanvin woman but i don't really feel so close to her. even though that is the case i like these two pieces a lot. especially the red one.
Valentino's collection was the one that i liked most. i don't mean the every outfit separately. the collection as a whole was so cohesive, yet every outfit was inspiring and exciting.
these ones i put up were the ones that i loved most. and loved a lot!
the fabrics are so elegant and beautiful. the layers are so adequate.
i know even the 2011/2012 fall/winter collections are out. but to look them up; collection by collection, garment by garment, i have to buy myself some summer clothes first.
in the summer, under the sun, near the sea, on the "chaise lounge" surely i'd be digging the fall/winter collection.
