Another good looking pre-fall 2011 collection. The super 70's look is clear and also the minimalistic touch. Go A-lines, go flared pants and go natural waistline!

The creativity shouldn't stop during Christmas and since I am the "architect" for the yearly gingerbread Christmas house I have looked at different inspirations. The last years it has been the Bengtskär's lighthouse, Alvar Aalto house and a log home. I thought about going higher this year; some of these?

If you are travelling to NYC soon do visit the FIT museum! Taken from the FIT website;
"His & Hers explores changing perceptions of "masculine" and "feminine" dress from the mid-18th century to the present. Side-by-side comparisons of men’s and women’s clothing highlight their differences—and similarities. Featuring more than 100 garments, accessories, and textiles, the exhibition begins with complementary "his and hers" clothing by 20th-century designers who have created fashions for both men and women. For example, Yves Saint Laurent’s role as an influential proponent of trousers for women is exemplified by a navy blue woman’s pantsuit from 1967. It is shown alongside a man’s suit in dark blue velvet, also by Saint Laurent. "

Utilizing innovative textile technologies, together with aspects of traditional Japanese clothing culture, these designers were instrumental in creating a new relationship between body and clothes, a new attitude toward the beauty of imperfection, and a new appreciation of avant-garde fashion as "art.""

Nathalie Fordeyn experimented with shape and proportion to striking effect in her MA knitwear collection, Royal Academy of Fine Arts. I find the diversity of her silhouettes - from voluminous forms to bubble hem - as well as the playful felted hats and sophisticated colour palette very interesting.
