Seriously, I don’t like that the 2010 fall collections have already been presented in January. In my opinion, even March/beginning of April is still too early to think about or look at fall and winter fashion. Maybe it’s because I’m now living in a region where the weather is always warm or even hot and I can’t do anything with winter clothes. Maybe that’s why I’m generally not interested in the cold season’s collections anymore.
The only fall/winter item I can’t stop thinking of is a poncho. I love ponchos (since I didn’t buy that poncho-like Isabel Marant top on sale a couple of seasons ago – damn, I could still kick my ass). Unfortunately, a real poncho, like the beautiful one from Chloé’s Summer 2010 collection wouldn’t suit my tiny frame.
That’s why I fell in love with the poncho-like coats and jackets of Philip Lim’s Fall 2010 Collection. Some of them even I could wear because of their short and boxy cut.
Not quite a poncho but something that has kind of the same feel is that beautiful skirt and the shorts.
But still: No matter the season – it’s warm here in Dubai, so I won’t be able to wear anything like that.
