British designer J. Smith Esquire makes fantastic hats and accessories fit for the modern Victorian lady. Is that an oxymoron? Hmmmm… I’m especially digging the fur hats- it’s like a cat on your head- that’s always good in my universe. I also love the stained glass hat. Speaking of stained glass, here are some photos I took of the newly remodeled Limelight in NYC:

Stained glass is the best! It’s like a forever rainbow! (yes, I’ll always be a four year old at heart.)

Anyway, the that neck piece in the fourth photo is pretty killer! That’s a statement piece if ever there was one… Brilliant work, J!

Call your resident gimp because I just found the beautifullest winter ensemble- a head to toe knit mohawk suit! It’s by Sibling London and they also have the coolest knit sweaters that any serious punk rocker would swoon for. No seriously, I love these cool knitwear, especially the one with “PUNK” written like that Robert Indiana statue. This must be a Johnny Rotten sponsored show. Even though these are for men, I would totally wear it all “burning down the house” style…. except the girlfriend from hell sweater.. that would be completely inaccurate.

Only one thing came to my mind after seeing Christopher Kane’s Spring 2011. MACAROONS!! Maybe I’m just hungry for Macaroons…. These were my 2 fave looks from Kane’s collection, the rest were bleh to me. I always like a bright, cheery skirt suit. And the lace is pretty cute- I , myself am always partial to doily fashion. Lace can be either super trashy or really cute- this falls under cute, luckily. This is excellent wear for an afternoon of tea and macaroons! It’s four o’clock tea somewhere in the world right now, right?

British designer Louise Gray wowed us with her awesome fabric swatch technique. It’s like every swatch of fabric found in Jo-Ann‘s quilt section was in this collection. I think Louise just went in a fabric store and swiped all the samples for her personal use! Rude! Kidding, I want to like this collection because it is avant-garde, but not everything avant-garde is great. Case in point. I appreciate the effort, but it really looks too messy for my taste. Now, I’m wondering what happened to my Holly Hobby doll from my childhood. I’m gonna go look for it…

London- based designers  Sass & Bide showed a collection called “Papa-Sucre” . I have no idea why it was called , as translated, “Sugar Daddy”. This looks more like “Mama Rafia“. Seriously, though, I do like  the friendly DYI quality of the Elizabethan collars. Swiping the rafia from the brownie mix stand at Trader Joe’s could help recreate this look. I think there needs to be more Elizabethan collars in this world today. That way I won’t look like that much of a fool when I wear mine out. That being said, this collection was sort of spacey, yet tribal. All that was missing was face paint and some bone jewelry.

Here is Part 2 of my favorites from UK’s Graduate Fashion Week 2010. The first photo reminds me Victor & Rolf, which I adore. The third and fourth photos look like straight up aliens. And the last four photos are wonderfully fun and childish, which I find appealing AND there are lots of Bows- yay! Love the robot tights and Pinocchio skirt, although her sweater looks like a fungus of some sort. I’d wear it.
