A/W 2010 either side of the coin

It’s only summer (finally) and not a moment too soon, Im loving wearing my sun dresses but already there’s talk of Autumn/Winter with lines launching left right and centre. Today I’ve picked just two that have caught my eye for various reasons. One is pure genius, the other a fashion train-wreck. Bet you can’t guess which one I went with first

The terrible- Miss Selfridge A/W 2010

When good clothes go bad, this week the jekyl and hyde coat.

Can anyone explain the function of these? No? didn’t think so.

I can’t even slightly justify this.

Oh Miss S what happened? Your summer line is simply daling and I was in love with your Alice range. So then why do you assault my eyes with your A/W line, a disgusting blob of faux fur, lace and fringing. All will be big next season but you’ve really gone over board. In your defence a few of your items are ok but that’s about five out of 136. All of which can be seen on InStyle.

The great- Dior Haute Couture Autumn 2010

Floral prints can ofcourse still reign supreme in Autumn, just add a cardigan and tights! And as for the black and red gown, just wow.

Dont really understand the whole plastic on head concept but it works with the theme and outfits

I know it’s not very fair to pitch a high street brand against a label as massive as Dior but I have.  I love the nature theme of the whole thing and the full skirts. I can’t see the huge gowns transferring to the high street but the big skirts are easily achieved.

Autumn is of course a long way off yet, I’m just getting used to the sunlight again!

  4. How about we just ignore the first collection and that heinous cape thing and concentrate on the floral loveliness?
