AS FAR AS TRENDS GO, THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THE PIECES FROM DESIGNER READY-TO-WEAR (RTW) COLLECTIONS WILL BE IMITATED & EVENTUALLY FLOOD THE DEPARTMENT STORES & BOUTIQUES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. TRENDS ARE GREAT & THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING DEVOTED TO TRENDS…. THERE IS ALSO NOTHING WRONG WITH TAKING THE MORE SINGULAR ROUTE BY JUST WEARING WHAT LOOKS GREAT ON YOU 🙂

Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collections

I’ve chosen to showcase two top designers who have collections for Spring 2010 that stood out of the box.

I have picked 6 of my favorite pieces from each runway show.

*BALENCIAGA*

This fashion house is a personal favorite. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere has given Balenciaga it’s standing as a truly UNIQUE line especially in comparison to most major fashion labels. The Spring 2010 collection had such a significant spark because it is literally different from the things other designers have constructed for the season. “I wanted to do something urban. No more history for the moment!” Nicolas said backstage before sending out the Balenciaga 2010 Spring line that put the high fashion in street athleticism.

Not only does Balenciaga dominate when it comes to being distinct, this house is world renown for quality & intricate engineered designs all the way down to the fabrics.

The intricacy is not necessarily visible to the eye in the photographs. For example, the popular “hoodie” designs in this collection are engineered from molded leather, woven jersey & nylon foam (never even been attempted in the past). The boots in this collection have ankle sections constructed with either hand-loomed fabric or a meltdown of white, blue & green strips of leather, laser-compressed into a striated mixture. What looks like “jeans” from a distance is actually vegetable-dyed leather. Way to push the limits.

Below are runway photos of my 6 favorite pieces from this collection…

( Notice the “urban-warrior” make-up… FABULOUS!!! )

This urban collection took the generalized high fashion look to new lengths…

The next collection is another line that stood out amongst the leading designers.

*D&G*

Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana never seize to amaze me! This Spring collection takes us on a sexy ride back to the wild wild west. From faded denim snap-front shirts, creamy blouses, distressed boyfriend jeans, all the day down to laser-cut suede bloomers & minis. This collection was so out of the box!

I love how the Dolce & Gabbana house just picks a theme then runs with it to the finish line.

I love the second designers pictures. I really love the skirts and the jackets. Very cute. Natalia’s look is very different! Hope to see some of these looks this spring!
