Passing Geometry.

Nothing too exciting is going on in my life right now, so I began looking for inspiration on for something to write about!
I always look at the current trends, to see what I like/dislike and what I think I can actually pull off! While looking today, I became especially fascinated with all the geometric prints that the designers are putting down the runway. The style is striking, bold, and unexpected. Bigger is better!
I absolutely appreciate the hard work and tailoring that had to go into making these pieces. The design is fantastic, and each designer added a little something to call it their own. So love it, hate it, these were some of my favorite designs. This is not fashion for the faint of heart :)

Comme des Garçons:

Dolce & Gabbana:

Giambattista Valli:

Salvatore Ferragamo:

Andy & Debb:

Christian Lacroix:


Oscar de la Renta:

Stella McCartney:

Alexander McQueen:


So do you love it, or hate it? And, do you have any favorites?

P.S. Can you believe it's already been 1 year since Heath Ledger died? :(

I know! It's very hard to was so sad. The acting community lost such a great actor. He knew his stuff!

Hmmm. Maybe I am just "faint at heart". :)
These dresses are amazing...but only could be worn on the runway. Can you imagine wearing them to a party or a wedding? Haha.

I love these, even though they're exaggerating and will probably never find their way off the runway. I love the entire Mcqueen collection, the silhouettes are simply amazing. And the Calvin Klein SS09 structured dresses are pretty incredible too, they're sculpted yet feminine and soft.
You have a great blog here, would you like to exchange links?

The look for andy and debb is quite creative. I think this geometric look is going to be popular again for fall 09.

D&G can do no wrong (for me!). Salvator Ferragamo looked really nice too, something I would wear. And I knoww, it's so sad about Heath Ledger :(. Agh, I won't ever watch his movies in the same way..
