Diane von Furstenberg Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2010

Borrowing from and interpreting menswear seems a theme in the fall-season in New York. But, as a trend watcher earlier this year told us, the men’s jacket is the new dress for the coming five years.

Diane von Furstenberg always wanted to live a man’s life in a woman’s body, at least that’s what she confessed in her show-notes. So it was no surprise men’s suits played a main part in the collection. She cropped the pants, mixed the gray felted wool with chiffon rosettes and a corduroy jacket with a ruffled minidress.

It was the old game of playing soft against hard. Luckily there were also a lot of dresses to choose from, from simple lbd’s to tunic dresses.

Alexander Wang Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2010

It looked like Alexander Wang took the traditional banker’s uniform – the darkblue pinstriped suit – deconstructed it and put it together again. The result was sexy and dark, almost with a Belgian touch. But where designers like An Demeulemeester and the early Martin Margiela put a lot of effort in the making, the cut and the fit, it seemed Wang aimed more at the effect. Cropped blazers, tailcoats and vests exposed flashes of skin and were worn with thick thigh-high legwarmers and chunky heels. Layering also played a part in this collection, but was less relaxed. For evening and partywear Wang chose velvet and chenille.

Ontfront Amsterdam Fashion Week fw 2010

The menswear-label Ontfront has a signature of its own: rebellious but focused at real men’s  tailoring. The fw 2010 collection had a hint of techno eighties with a straight and gründliche German touch.

Designer Liza Koifman was inspired by car-races at Le Mans and Monaco and car-design and aerodynamic silhouettes. Colors were dark and reminded us of asphalt, rubber wheels and colorful highlights, fabrics were classic but also techno.

All together it was a mucho macho collection with a playful touch, like little boys wearing tough clothes to be like their big brothers. But hey, men and cars – it’s the same as men and clothes. Showing off is allowed.

Frontrow Day three – Amsterdam Fashion Week

Supertrash knows  how to get attention: inviting lots of vips, and creating a buzz who’s coming or not. Well, we noticed many Dutchies found their way to the show, although a few left angry because of the way they were treated. Maybe they were not happy with their seats, or they didn’t receive that much wanted goodiebag?

Anyway we spotted a.o. Bridget Maasland, minister Cramer, soccer-player Edgar Davids, Lieke van Lexmond, model Yfke Sturm and as special guest Alexandra Richards – daughter of Rollings Stones-member Keith Richards.

SUPERTRASH_AFWF10_BS_318

“A new era has begun in which power is back where it belongs, women finally will take over authority. SuperTrash tells this story with her new winter collection, specially created by Power women for Power women! Who can we honor better to celebrate this than the most famous queen of our history that ruled over a whole empire: Miss Cleopatra.” This was according to their pressrelease.

And it was a strong woman indeed that walked the catwalk at the Supertrash-show. And she couldn’t care less what others would think of her ultra-tight, short dresses, high heels, glitzy leggings and comfy cardigans or leather jackets. Colors moved form black to brown, green and off white. Silver studs, golden tinkles and long zippers made it look more tough, while big flower-prints added a touch of femininity.
