No more flowers? Less heavy on the flowers, definitely. Thematically, Erdem seems to be telling us that next spring, black and white will still be a thing. Great. But I don’t know if I can get behind those shoes. You know who’ll end up taking credit for them? Miley Cyrus.   Full Article

Sasha Answers: A Catholic-Muslim child and wedding

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 16, 2013 19:09:53 September 16, 2013 19:09:53

Dear Sasha, My fiancé and I are in our 20s and we’ve been together for almost 3 years. We’re from different religious backgrounds. I’m a practicing Catholic and he’s a Muslim, but not very serious about it. His parents are very pious though. We’re both very close to our families and were raised with traditional values. Full Article

Sasha Answers: I'm not ready to settle down

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 16, 2013 18:02:03 September 16, 2013 18:02:03

Dear Sasha, I need a real unbiased opinion.  My boyfriend and I met when we were 20 and have been in love and dating ever since that was 4 years ago. We moved to a new city together a year ago and things have been great! He is in university and I'm a server trying to figure out my life! We have friends but I feel like we don't have separate lives, we do everything together. Full Article

I feel like Matthew Williamson is figuring out what he wants to be, who he wants to represent. Am I holding it against him, the fact that Mischa Barton was his muse? None of these pieces are memorable to me. And the entire line gives the impression that he's playing catch-up. Like he's only just now coming to what the others were doing in 2011. Full Article

Preen is hard to find in Canada. They carry Preen at Basquiat in Vancouver and that’s where I bought it whenever I could but now that I live in Toronto, I don’t know where to get my Preen fix. And it looks like I’m going to need one because this collection, with so much white trim, is exactly what I want for now, never mind spring. Full Article

Mary Katrantzou’s collections keep getting stronger and stronger. You know what I like most about these shapes? Nothing looks super tight. As for the prints – it’s a little tacky, the “fake” buckles and straps, but I think I’m into it the way she’s presented it, precisely because the pieces aren’t body-con. Full Article

By far my favourite collection of NY Fashion Week. Perhaps my favourite Proenza Schouler collection of all time. Feels so fresh and inspired, especially the stripped skirts. Check the one with what looks like half-tinsel coming down but only on one side. And I love the criss-cross crop tops that leave only a triangle of skin exposed in the middle which somehow seems so much more stylish than just the standard crops we’ve been seeing so much this year, and certainly a lot more forgiving. Full Article
