Day 7 of MBFW was filled with a variety of luxurious fabrics, bright floral prints, metallics (of course), and it was all about movement. Capes are making a revised comeback, this time as a cape/train hybrid using thinner, less static fabrics that will flow and move with the body. Bibhu Mohaptra showed several looks with the cape/train combo, which were absolutely stunning. Michael Kors‘ collection was laid back, tailored and full of florals.
Personally, it’s usually hit or miss with Michael Kors. Sometimes, let’s face it – he seems arrogant. And his collections don’t really scream genius to justify that ego. Sorry loves, I have to be honest. Yet, I did appreciate a bit more of his collection this time. (Don’t let that go to your head, MK.)
I discovered Falguni and Shane, which was full of unique, fresh looks and of course, metallics. Erin Fetherston showed several gorgeous, feminine lace looks that I adore. Finally, B. Michael and Anna Sui both also went the metallics route with several strong looks that I’d love to take home. Pretty please?
On a sidenote, the looks were terrible, Madonna circa 1980’s metallics and tulles….BUT, Betsey Johnson’s runway play on modern marriage was a fun, fresh way to make her viewpoint known. The show started out with two men in tuxes, carrying bouquets walking down the runway.
Several looks after that were playful 1980’s looks, with giant teased hair, overdone makeup and giant pre-nup necklaces. A couple men in drag wedding gear, and you get the picture. The show culminated in several models sporting “I won’t” T-shirts down the runway. While these looks certainly didn’t make the Luxe Lookbook Best Luxe Looks, I loved the message she was sending.
