Spring/Summer '09 Ready-er ;)


Uh... Happy New Year! =D


Owe you guys a blog post, it’s been a while. Two-week holiday here in the Philippines, have just gone back from a beach break. Windy, cloudy weather, though. Didn’t get much of a tan, no matter how hard I tried.

Anyhoo, here's a looooong one for y'all, to make-up for the long-time-no-post period. Sharing with you some surefire trends for the next season. These are my top 10 faves:

1. THE CUT-OUT (shoulders, ribs, hipbones)

Stella McCartney

Mario Schwab

Herve Leger


2. ACID-WASHED JEANS
Rock & Republic

Balmain

Rock & Republic


3. ABS (Haha! It's time to stop gorging on them holiday goodies.)
Herve Leger

Alexander Wang

YSL


4. CRINKLY-WRINKLY (Good thing 'cos who likes to iron clothes, eh?)
Costume National

Prada

Lanvin


5. PALE DENIM (color or actual material)
Alexander Wang

Rag & Bone

Burberry Prorsum


6. ASSYMETRICAL SHOULDERS/SLEEVES
Celine

ThreeAsFour

Derek Lam


7. BLACK AND WHITE COMBO
Ann Demeulemeester

Proenza Schouler

Gareth Pugh


8. MONO PRINTS - SNAKESKIN, SPECTRAL/HOLOGRAM, CAMOUFLAGE (I find dots and heart prints too keut for our own good.)
Prada

Viktor & Rolf

Giles


9. ZIPPER DETAILS
Preen

Alexander Wang (zip detail on pants)

Alexander McQueen


10. NUDE TONES - see "Nude Pics" posted last October 23, 2008 :)

Yep, I also do love the sharp-shouldered jackets and the pop look of Stephen Sprouse-inspired designs but that'd be past 10 items. Silk rompers are kinda okay, too.

So there. Hope this helps enough. xoxo.
