Designer Thom Browne unveiled a collection that would make an egg rejoice.  Really, though, I actually like it and appreciate the new silhouette. After seeing form-fitting hoochie -wear for a while now ( does the hooch ever go out of style? Probably not),  it’s refreshing to see that not everything is T & A. God, I sound like a friggin’ nun. Anywho, anything plaid is always cool in my book as is the fuzzy, mohair look. My favorite has to be the uptight Victorian with the cage skirt in the 6th photo. I always liked cage skirts! I think my least favorite is the third photo with the Sasquatch mid-section. It’s like a hairy arm muzzle for cold mental patients. Anywho, yay for Thom Browne for stepping a bit out of the boundaries which is always unusual during New York Fashion Week.

Danish Design School recent graduate, Anne-Sofie Madsen,  is surely one to keep on your radar. Her soft textured, creamy designs are perfect for that dreary fall/winter day or night needing a splash of fantasy. My favorites are the shoulders on the dress in the  second photo- very  reminiscent of  Balmain. The coat in the third photo is fantastic as it reminds me of a coat my mother gave me from her collection. I remember my mother wearing it as I was a child and now, years later, I wear it with the same grace . I will stop the sap right there!   Yes, I look like a sheep dog wearing it, but I am a graceful sheep dog.
