tommy hilfiger should design prep school uniforms on the side – where was he during my high school years?

update: details of givenchy fall/winter 2010 haute couture.

just found this video documenting the painstaking, amazing detail that i posted about in givenchy‘s fall/winter 2010 haute couture collection.

givenchy couture fall 2010.

the amount of detail alone in the givenchy couture fall 2010 collection is stunning.

it’s hard to tell from the images because the pieces are monochromatic, but there is a skeletal/religious theme – for example, the bracelets in look #2 are shaped like spinal cords, and the back of the jacket in the final look (6b) is a motif of a skull with crosses and wings; one will also note the large cross in image 5b.

the tramp.

charlie chaplin‘s “tramp” character was revived by john galliano in his spring/summer 2010 runway show in paris. i can’t say i particularly like the looks – but the endearingly theatrical galliano always knows how to put on a show.

watch the runway show here.

charlie chaplin's "tramp", circa 1910.

going green.

ever since dries

i’ve been on the prowl for a bright green coat. i recently managed to snap up a similarly hued apple green silk ralph lauren dress, but no luck on the coat front, so far.

the color does seem to be popping up everywhere…

green blazer (inner) - unknown designer

fendi "peekaboo" tote

green coat - unknown designer

...and this is what's in my budget. "pretty edgy" by essie, $8.
