Central Saint Martins Graduate Isabel Czernin Fishlock’s 2010 collection was all roses! Okay, more like orchids… I’m terrible with gardening by the way ( everything I touch dies and I can’t tell a flower from an herb), so let’s just generalize and say flowers. Anywho, I’m more into bows than flowers, but I can appreciate a good flower-y dress, as long as it’s not like those fugly flower dresses from JC Penney. I am really digging the harem pants in the third photo (or “jihad” pants, as I call them). You could totally go shoplifting in those bad boys. Bravo for Isabel!

I was graciously invited to preview the fantastic jean company, Hudson Jeans, new lines of denim called DIY at The Colony nightclub in LA. I especially love the harem pants in the fourth photo. They were a jean material, but much softer than stiff. The zipper pants are pretty hot, too, although the zipper just an illusion. They don’t really come apart. I thought those would be ideal “all-you-can-eat buffet” pants since you could unzip as you get fatter at the buffet, but I was mistaken. The patchwork denim jeans in the fifth photo is actually made from vintage Hudson jeans, which makes it pretty damn special. I think my favorite is the corset laced jeans. You can’t really tell from the photo, but the jeans were sort of satin-y and nice to the touch. Definitely a cat magnet. That’s good news for cat ladies everywhere (including me!) Anyway, Hudson is also venturing into comfortable and chic tops such as the one above. It’s a wool jacket with an oversized lining that felt like “butta”. It was sooooooo soft. I wanted to curl up in it and purr. These pieces will be available at Barneys NY and Jeffrey. As always, Hudson’s other line is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and chic boutiques.

Two fashion things I hate in this world  (except for scrunchies and UGG boots) are sweatpants and khakis. Alexander Wang had a personal vendetta to make me cringe and vomit  when he designed his Spring 2010 collection. Why do I dislike these two hideously, inferior fabrics, you ask?

-Khaki’s remind me of frat boys wearing khaki’s. They also remind me of safari wear, which in turn reminds me of the movie,   Out of Africa and further spurs my memory to the time when  I was 7 and was forced to see this movie in a theater with my family. That was one expensive and uncomfortable nap. Scarred!

– Sweatpants reminds me of my tween, tomboy stage where I wore yellow Benetton sweatpants endlessly. It matched the family car- a yellow Toyota ( nefariously nicknamed the ‘Bina-Banana mobile’). Scarred, once again!

Stop this insanity!! Serenity now.

British designer, Amy Thompson, has designed a collection with very thin plastic in pretty pastel colors. These are pretty wearable considering they are very flexible, but not very breathable. I guess you could wear them for very short periods of time. My favorite are the purple pants. They look so robotic and reminds me the this Thierry Mugler outfit.  I would wear these during gardening. Martha Stewart should buy the rights to this. I can imagine her wearing these while planting her petunias.  She would say ‘It’s a Good Thing’  and then post a template to make these on her site. Only no one would make them because it would take 1,000 hours and a degree in engineering to make them . It would take Martha an afternoon to make these. Maybe about 20 plastic folders and some brass fasteners will do the trick. I would leave it to Amy, though.

Here are a few of my favorite looks from the Temperley London Fall 2009 collection. With influences drawing from Mongolia and Russia, this collection was fantastic at all levels. Is it wearable? Yes!  Is it comfortable, yet chic? Yes! Is it cutting edge without trying to hard? Mais Oui! The oversized waist cinchers exuded a more glamorous figure (the leopard helps with that, as well). That being said , I have already whipped out my Hammer pants like the one above.( I don’t throw anything away!) I also call them my jihad pants because they look like something a middle eastern villager would wear. I know , I will look like I have a diaper full of poo, but it’s all in the name of fashion!
