My current crushes which I spotted at FTV: Tres adorable!
Tough choice it is, but my most favorite of the four is Francesco Sconamiglio...
If you're hot, don't stop! The buzz around Christophe Decarnin's Balmain is a smack in the eye for fashion doom-mongering. With vintage Madonna on the soundtrack, his Spring show—all bling and rock-chick fabulousness—gave the opening of Paris fashion week a shot of pure adrenalin. For a girl looking for an instant backstage pass, this is the wardrobe that will send her sailing past the heaviest security on sight.
From New York, Preen "Power" dress has been popping up more and more on young Hollywood starlets, and its snug fit, cutouts, and ultrahigh hem provided a continuing template for a sexy, spot-on Fall collection that designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi said was influenced by Quadrophenia and Blade Runner.
A series of little white dresses (bracelet-sleeved, one-shouldered, or strapless, decorated with sculptural rosettes or ruffles) showed Scognamiglio at his best: just this side of flamboyant, but relevant at retail, too. When he starts thinking more along these lines, he'll start drawing the crowds that his technique deserves. As the kids say, Francesco Sconamiglio has mad skills. He can cut a lean, mean suit with the best of them!
It's all go in London, especially at Giles Deacon's studio in Brick Lane with his Resort collection... Deacon was buzzing on the news that he's
a) got a new Italian licensee, and
b) won the French ANDAM award, which means not only oodles of euros, but also that he'll be showing in Paris in the fall.
