Olivier Theyskens’ collection for Nina Ricci Spring 2009 was just gorgeous and original. It had a romantic , yet modern feel to it without it being costumey. Theysken has a knack for making elegant evening wear without it looking stuffy or too contrived. Nina Ricci has finally been revived! My mother wears Nina Ricci ‘L’air du temps’ perfume and whenever I smell it in a department store , I still think it smells like ‘mommy’. When my mom would travel and I missed  ‘mommy’ , I would go sniff her perfume. She just came back 2 weeks from Canada. Don’t judge! Anycutmyumbilicalcordnow, Nina Ricci’s collection was a ethereal, romantic collection with a modern twist.

I seriously couldn’t decide which photos to post because they were all equally fuped like these here! This is the latest collection from Maison Martin Margiela. Yes, Martin Margiela – the boutique on Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills with the Sparkletts irridescent thingies on the outside of the building. Anyfuglycrazycollection, I think designers are saving a crap load of money on hiring ‘Butta-faces’ and covering their entire head with props like wigs and hosiery. The hosiery could be a reference to mini-mart hold ups or those people from Anonymous. And the afro wig is probably a reference to the blaxploitation years or just a microphone. By the way is that Jacko in the first photo??? Well, we know what Madonna’s gonna wear on tour….

Okay, So I am the biggest Gaultier fan there ever was and will be, but the Spring 2009 Ready to Wear collection was one of the most boring ones  out of all his collections. Could Hermes have drained his creativity? The looks above are my most favorite out of collection. I think Gaultier is a better costume designer than fashion designer, because when he designs costumes , he doesn’t have the pressure to sell, but when he designs fashion collections , he has to make sure that women can wear his clothes on the street in real life without looking a foolio. ‘The Fifth Element’ and ‘The Cook , the Wife, The Thief and His Lover’ are his best works in film. His Couture collections are killer , too. It must be hard to tone down your creativity for the sake of sales.

Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2009 pays hommage to nature. With prints of tree rings and amoeba- like shapes, honeycombs and earthy tones, McQueen’s collection was quite beautiful. The bunny costume is McQueen himself- a little bizarre, but harmless. He should have worn a Chuck E. Cheese costume. That would have been so strange, that it would have been chic and edgy. A little advice about Chuck E. Cheese by the way- don’t go on the weekends, unless you want to be trampled by small people. Don’t eat the pizza unless you like cardboard and sawdust. Back to McQueen, he did incorporate his signature leather harness in a few looks. The leather harness is sort of like a modern day corset, but not as restrictive. It’s obvious the environment is on McQueen’s mind, let’s hope it’s on more people’s minds and help conserve nature’s real fashion models.

The dynamic design duo known as Viktor & Rolf showed their Spring 2009 in a interesting way. There was no audience, front row snobs or tough doormen. They showed their collection via the internet shot with one model , Shalom Harlow. In a time of tough economy, the way they presented their show may be the beginning of a new wave of designers to follow. On to the actual designs, may of the dresses took four weeks to make including the organza rills. I personally think this collection is super fug, but I can appreciate the time and effort it went into making these unusual frocks. Viktor & Rolf have always been daring and the creator of the new look, sihouette or fabric. For that , they have my utmost respect.

Tao Kurihara of TAO showed her Spring 2009 version of a Scottish Bagpiper and a clown’s spawn would look like in the world of fashion. With details like the knee socks worn by bagpipers to exaggerated peter pan collars made famous by vintage clowns, this was truly an original show. When a collection is too original, often times it deems itself as unwearable in everyday life. This collection disproves that theory. Minus the hats, these looks are wearable, unique and chic. Tao’s creative  risks have paid off in a great way. Bravo!

Vivienne Westwood had a lot of misses and a few hits in my opinion… Here are the ‘hits’ for me- I’ a fan of that Gothic Victorian look- and the more distressed, the better. … it was nothing special in my eye, especially since I know Vivienne Westwood’s extremely genius potential. But nonetheless, she has reedeemed himself with the looks above. God Save Vivienne!
