Best of Milano fashion week FW 2010: Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld

I love the Fendi collection so bad it hurts: Karl Lagerfeld created the most beautiful colours, silhouettes and combinations this season.

Best of Milano fashion week FW 2010: Prada

Prada has always been one of my favourites, cause designer Miuccia Prada is a true fashion leader.
Remember the high knee boots? Miuccia Prada.
Or how about the beautiful high waisted ultra short classic purple-red skirts and shorts? SS 2007: Miuccia Prada as well.
This season she believes in a Fall/Winter look which seems very conservative, but actually has the breast as a focal point.

That is why she used 'curvy' models as well as slimmer season favourites like Abbey Lee Kershaw.
Honestly I'm done with the whole 'why aren't models curvier'-discussion, but what I can say is that I do understand why designers pick the somewhat slimmer models on the catwalk:

Best of LONDON fashion week FW 2010: Burberry Prorsum

For Fall/Winter 2010 Burberrys Christopher Bailey designed a whole lot of parkas and overcoats, inspired by an old aviator jacket from the Burberry archive. With that came a little lace, a little fur, and, as always: a pleasant overload of beautiful bags and boots.

Best of LONDON fashion week FW 2010: Central Saint Martins

I'm always looking forward to see the Central Saint Martins collection because of the refreshing looks of the recently graduated spirit. This time there were lots of similarities in all 22 collections: deconstruction, exaggerated, sharp and blown up shapes, new volumes and lots of black, white en nude tints.
Three of my season favourites:
