Two inspirational quotes to start the post. 1) Never say never. (I vowed just two days ago not to make any more posts about pre-fall collections) 2) It ain’t over until MMM says it’s over. Yes I know even couture shows are about to end and we are all bored with pre-fall stuff but this is too good to not share. Besides, I would wait any kind of wearable Margiela with arms wide open and even though I get some serious Victor & Rolf and Watanabe (maybe even 90’s Gaultier) vibe (let’s not kid ourselves, it was never the same after mysterious Mr Margiela left but still I see it as a design shrine) I still want to embrace every single look. Anyone looking for gift ideas – my birthday is in, like, 4 months so you have to schedule beforehand – anything from this collection would do. Anything. But I prefer the sweaters. And the boots. Maybe the dresses too. Oh no I want the pants.
Yes, there’s such a season when it comes to fashion and apparently it’s so important that it needs its very own collection. I’m pretty sure soon there will be a separate collection for the indian summer or the random 10 days in May where it doesn’t stop raining. As much as I enjoy looking at new collections everyday, I worry deeply about the design teams trying to keep up with the crazy fashion schedule. As to what we should invest / keep for pre-fall in 2014; anything with a 70’s vibe (preferably suede and below the knee, loose pants and skirts) and any kind of fringe or fur panel is good to go, sheepskin and pinstripes are in full flow and simply jump on every burgundy leather or a piece of shoe (it doesn’t even have to be a pair) that consists of two things: black and white.
