Trying to catch up.

I’ve not been blogging much lately – partly because I was so busy in my real-non-virtual life and partly because I was quite overwhelmed by all the new spring/summer collections popping up every day for the last couple of weeks. I always need my time to digest new stuff (so stay tuned for totally enthusiastic blog posts about the Spring 2011 collections by Prada, Chanel & Co. in February-March – just kidding). This is really bad, because I discover what I like and want always a little too late. Best example: my Ann Demeulemeester lace-up booties from the 2009 summer collection. A friend who was living in South Korea at that time hunted a size 35 down for me in Seoul (thank you, Felix <3) when even the winter 2009 collection had already been sold out completely.

So not surprisingly I had problems to get my head around Prada’s vertiginously colourful new collection, Dolce & Gabbana’s white-white-white creations, Jil Sander’s T-shirt-(huge)skirt-combinations and, and, and… Give me a break, please! I’m not that fast!

However, there’s been one collection I really loved at first sight (it took me a week to write about it, though): Phillip Lim did a fantastic job this time! OK, there’s nothing really innovative (we’ve seen detached collars at Miu Miu last summer already, and leather and lazer cuts are also “in” for a couple of seasons), but the way he put everything together and the colours… the colours! And the shoes…

(Did I mention that I’m trying to find a pair of Chanel bow booties? Yes, the ones from a collection a couple of seasons ago. I’ve tried them on here in Dubai at that time and couldn’t get my head around them. For one week I deeply believe I need to have them. Same old, same old…)


  1. I’m having the same problem! Every day on top of my to-do list: ‘Check, check ALL fashion shows!’ (then I never find the time and it moves to next days’ to-do list). Haven’t even come close to 3.1 PL… But I like what I see here!

  2. I totally agree, everything seems so fast, especially during fashion week when new collections come out everyday (not complaining though 🙂 ). Good luck finding the Chanel booties! As for me I’m trying to find the YSL cages…I couldn’t get my head around the price at the time but I still love them and want them so much.

    & I don’t think I’ve thanked you for the blog award! Thank you so much, it means a lot.
