a bit of rochas, rue du mail and limi feu, now.
i found the collection as a whole to be a bit all over the place; in terms of colour and silhouette (though the florals prints and silky fabrics were pretty consistent), but that huge-skirted floral number is stunning and needed to be included. such an urge to throw big jumpers (or something in a poofy textured skirt for the first number) over these looks and mix some textures for autumn...
rue du mail
these few looks happen to be the opening few looks, but the pulled thread/ladder technique here really grabbed me, especially in the third look when combined with some sheers (and the blue/cream colour scheme).
again, it was one look (the third dress with the curved, ruched, under-bust hem) which grabbed me here, and made me glance through the collection again. lots of great pieces, but these 4 looks were the ones which stood out to me, for various reasons. limi really has a way of making simple cuts look amazingly cool (must be a japanese thing; it's certainly a trick often pulled off by the expert hands of both yohji and rei at CDG) - i mean, look at the way that jacket flows, or aforementioned dress slouches in just the right way... marvellous.
