By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Patrick Robinson is out at The Gap. Most people were shocked to hear it but not surprised as the designer had never found his groove at one of the world’s most famous mall chains.
Robinson started out as a fashion phenomenon in the mid-nineties after graduating from The Parsons School of Design in New York City. He worked for Paco Rabanne, Perry Ellis, Anne Klein and Giorgio Armani (where he managed to make the line profitable and popular). He then went on to become a member of both the CFDA and Vogue’s 100 Rising Stars. He is also married to Vogue’s Virgina Smith.
Milan Fashion Week has begun! Yipee! Are you excited. One more week left and then Paris. I wish I could be there instead of South Carolina. ERGH!
Dolce and Gabbana knew what they were doing when they made their D&G; collection. It reminds me of an Urban Cowboy look with brown boots and jeans, prairie lace and leather. I can see a lot of women wearing this come springtime. I also loved the sunglasses. I would wear those if they would only make the cute sunglasses with prescription lenses. Le sigh… I noticed in The Sartorialist’s pictures that Italians have been doing the jean on jean thing for awhile, so maybe it will catch on elsewhere.
Giorgio Armani was full of that tailored elegance that we always expect from him. The color palette of electric blues and hot pinks reminded me of Miami Vice. I love that show. Yay reruns. The taffeta and houndstooth were driving me mad. I would take a standing room only seat just so I could see the fabric move in person. I saved over 20 pics from the show on my computer. They look that great!
Moschino Cheap and Chic was definitely really cute. I love when people combine black and pink together. I also like the prints and graphic tops. The polka-dots, bows, and daisy hats were amusing . It was a really cute collection that I could totally see Blair wearing on Gossip Girl. That “Amore” necklace and duck leotard made me smile.
