A SPLASH OF COLOR from NY fall 09 fashionweek

By: brigitte segura

designers went shockingly bright in this economy…

…with a START of another season of the usual blacks, greys, and (more) dark blues…there was an added BLAST of shocking colors on the FALL 09 NEW YORK RUNWAY this time…

..the bright SUIT is back in a big way… that electric blue or rouge jacket you’ve been saving since the 80’s?… it’s so haute new on the DONNA KARAN runway… a return to an (old) freshened-new in familiar silhouettes and bright hues. Of course, MARC JACOBS led the flaunting parade of (almost neon) yellows, blues, pinks and reds, paired with darks… FUSCHIA was showing up everywhere, even on TOMMY HILFIGER men… and as for the dressy bunch…CAROLINA HERRERA had top-to-toe amethyst in satin and velvet; DKNY was rich in reds; BADGLEY MISCHKA and TRACY REESE showed jeweled tones of citrine, greens and blues…

Get used to color again and indulge in a colored accessory, like green or plum tights, a purple hat, a fuschia scarf, orange chunky jewelry, or a (pepto) pink handbag…wear it with your favorite (dark) and get an instant happy [without a big investment]… SPANX already has a range of tights available on-line in colors including raspberry, cobalt, violet, and emerald for (twenty-something) bucks…

THERE is something so marvelous about having the courage to wear brights… and if everyone else is, it just doesn’t look as jolting to the eye. Craving an instant lift? Wear a tone of pink (we’re not talking baby pink)… bubble pink, coral-pink, pink-violet! By the FALL you’ll be ready to take the plunge wearing printed leggings from MARA HOFFMAN or psychedelic tights in pink + green from MARC…

The hint of BRIGHT is RIGHT and paired with black, it’s TREND made easy (for anyone)… so go ahead, CAST your outlook in rainbow color…

BARBIE 50th ANNIVERSARY FASHION SHOW

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

50 AMERICAN DESIGNERS celebrate…

By Brigitte segura

a doll of a fashion icon…

a fabulous scene… (a hectic scene)… the fullest lobby I’ve ever seen at the tents…rumors flying around (hoping others would leave) that the fire department is on their way… a cross between fans at a Madonna concert and a scene at a 80’s department store basement sale trying to get to the 80% off table…fashionista bags were used casually to push and shove and get ahead of the line… leaving? Great…that’s my spot..

…once in the seat, it was all good vibes in the house… a start with (a just needed lift) of music and a visual walk-thru of 50 years of Barbie ads …I just wanted to burst OUT LOUD reading the captions of memory lane on the screen…and…

’I (still) want my dream house’… and ‘where is ken’?…(I’m still searching…)

there was a compilation… of 50 ‘dolls’ wearing none other than CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN pink shoes… BARBIE’s gone designer after all… who would have thought BARBIE is still a household name (even with the guys)…an unusually smiling front row Barbie FAN CLUB of sorts included actor Djimon Hounsou (‘tomb raider’), Kimora lee Simmons, Catherine Malandrino and the fashionable suspects trying to be serious… a barbie flashback of some timely fun…’what a doll’…

“a plastic tan never fades”…

and these barbie looks are hot to wear….. going hip in faux furry YIGAL AZROUEL over sculpted rosettes.. THREE as FOUR in pink + white dangling pompoms… RAG and BONE in cool schoolgirl blue… a very graphic TRACY REESE with a neat bow… NICOLE MILLER checks away…a NORMA KAMALI t 50’s tradition in black + white dots of a suit… a happy TULEH Barbie girl and a ‘bon voyage’ from DIANE VON FURSTENBERG with a pink carry-on…

“can’t take my eyes off of you”…

.. a gorgeous bride in MONIQUE LHUILLIER and a MARCHESA gown goes on and on …a glittered sweet REBECCA TAYLOR ruffled, pretty and (cougar)-like Barbie shown by Derek lam… [bleu blanc rouge] stars and stripes at CATHERINE MALANDRINO.. and a lace-up REEM ACRA “miss Barbie”…

“how do u like your..barbie” [drama]…

futuristic Barbie is so green in BETSEY JOHNSON.. a TOMMY (fringed) HILFIGER… a space-aged short BLONDS event.. a HOUSE OF FIELD (patricia fields) fiercely sexy fantasy … and a spectacular BOB MACKIE Cher-like costumed drama, (boa-like) fuzzy white and all.. and a KENNETH COLE reminder that “everybody needs a ken” …
