Wouldn’t it be great if we could all just be Victoria Beckham for one day? For one day, we could have picture-perfect adorable kids, David Beckham, AND an incredible talent for design. Of all the wannabe celebrity designers out there, very few actually know what they’re doing and even fewer have the stamina and the talent to last past a few seasons. Victoria Beckham has made the transition to being known as a real fashion designer rather than just being remembered as Posh Spice.
Again with prints reminiscent of the seventies (a definite trend for fall), Beckham showed one of her most wearable-for-all women collections to date. Printed dresses, tailored suiting, and flowing skirts combined with comfy oversized sweaters punctuated the point that you no longer have to look like Victoria Beckham in order to wear Victoria Beckham.
In what may be my favorite runway show of the season so far, Jonathan Simkhai presented a collection of gorgeous beaded and grommeted pieces, from day-dresses and suits to red-carpet-worthy gowns and an ornately-beaded crystal jumpsuit that can only be described as jaw-dropping. Just last year I was watching Simkhai on the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund documentary series and thinking to myself, “Wow! This guy is going to be (said in my best Trump voice) HUGE!”
Every time I see one of Han Chong’s Self-Portrait lace dresses online, I add it to my “Wish List” on Pinterest. His lace dresses are as much a signature for Self-Portrait as the wrap dress is for Diane von Furstenberg. However, not one of those signature lace dresses makes an appearance in Chong’s fall collection. Instead, the sleeves do all the talking. Sculptured ruffles and open-slit sleeves might be the next recognizable characteristic of a Self-Portrait look. And I can definitely see a lot more Han Chong in my wish list future.
