Here is a special Spring 2011 collection by  Maison Martin Margiela called  ‘Artisanal’. Each piece took hours of work and was handcrafted with Liberty prints, ribbons, flower garlands, colored plastic bags and leather to name a few. Usually I bust on Maison Martin Margiela, but today I feel generous. The artistic factor involved with this collection is like POW! I give it to anybody that can make couture from random stuff. My fave is the ribbon dress in the 6th photo. I do have to say the cellophane dress is a little ridiculous, but isn’t that what experimental fashion is about?  I may have changed my mind about Margiela!

The cherry on top (couldn’t resist) of this collection was the girly silhouette of short foufy skirts. That is my favorite- looks like a doll! Although the patterns were a little busy, I approve of this collection because the silhouette saved this collection’s ass. It’s like Pippi Longstocking collided with a 1950’s Bavarian housewife. Hearts all around! Wunderkind is gonna be on my radar blip from now on… I promise.

If you ever wanted to blend into your Nana’s basement wall or be all ninja in front of your shady uncle’s station wagon, this may be for you. Rodarte sent models down the runway with woodgrain (‘faux bois‘ if you wanna be all fancy-like) print ensembles for their Spring 2011 collection. Seriously, the only reason I would wear head to toe woodwork was if I wanted to get all stealth in the woods and get up close to nature and stuff. But with my luck, some angry chipmunk or aggressive woodpecker would probably try to peck or bite me, so ….NO, that would actually be a bad idea come to think of it. I have to admit I have a pair of Puma trainers that are wood grain with pink neon laces that I designed through Mongolian BBQ/Puma. Although, I have yet to wear them in the woods, whenever that will be! I’ll be sure to pack my mace.

This is season the avant-garde designer had safaris, old cartoons, and aviation on his mind. It’s like vintage Moschino was reincarnated as Jean-Charles Castelbajac , which is a compliment to say the least. I’m digging the zebra shoulders, and Felix the Cat print (although those pajama pants need to go) and the trench coat/dress. I’m not sure if The Little Prince is popular in the US, but it is in Europe, so somewhere it’ll be a cool outfit. Of course, my favorite has to be the sunglasses vest. Kinda reminds me of that statue in Soho with multiple boobs.  Anyway, I still like the Castelbajac ode to The Muppets collection better.

First off- The designer that had to fill Alexander McQueen shoes must have been shitting her pants.

Secondly, She did a pretty good job.

Thirdly, that hair at the show was beyond SPECTACULAR! It was like a basket came to life! It was like a checkerboard – how did they do that? While I ponder this, I remember I had done a hair show in NYC ages ago and I was modeling for Paul Mitchell and they did a dye job exactly like that- a checkerboard. Blonde and brunette. Only thing was that I was a demonstration model, so after doing only one side of my hair they kicked my ass off stage! So, I was walking around with the most effed up hair west of the Port Authority. That’s saying a lot considering the area. Anyway, a Feria dye job later I was back to normal, but needless to say it was a scarring experience.

Anyway, this collection was great- my favorites are the orange dress with butterflies emerging from the collar and the greyish, white feather dress in the first photo. That gold and cream dress (photo 5)  was equally stunning, too. Still, it’s such a shame a huge talent is gone.

This season, Karl the Kaiser must have had inspiration strike as he watched his maid dust his 200 ipods.Why? Because feathers were everywhere at the Chanel Spring 2011 show! I personally love feathers and marabou and anything fluffy, furry and soft. So this is right up my alley! Specifically, the alley with the most stray Persian cats (do they even exist??) but that’s a different story. Anyway, although Chanel is one of my all-time favorite designers, this particular collection didn’t “wow” me enough. Seriously, the feathers saved Karl’s ass, because feathers make everything instantly fancy and precious. At least in my book and Alexis Carrington’s book ( coincidentally, we share similar books). When in doubt, add a feather- that’s my quote along with  183,464,503 drag queens.

Our favorite cheeky designer whipped out his 3D glasses for his collection. No one told him you don’t need 3D glasses with Beth Ditto! Kidding! She looks wonderful. Love her flapper-style hair, actually. I liked Gaultier’s latest collection, but I didn’t love love it. I was torn between the Joan Jett mullet and the David Bowie suit. It’s like, so cool from the neck down and Central Floridian trailer trash from the neck up.  I think my favorite out of the bunch was the peach corset in the fourth photo. Corsets are what Gaultier does best, in my opinion… wish there was more of that in this collection. Besides that, those pointy shoulders are pretty cool, too.
