For those of you who aren't in Sydney at the moment, or are in Sydney but invitation got lost in the mail (because I'm pretty sure that's what happened to my invitations)- fret not, you can always live vicariously online. If you follow me on instagram you'd know I recently uploaded a photo with a quote; never let the things you want make you forget the things you have. As apt as that quote is, during the frenzy of new collections being shown and your credit cards wanting to escape the confines of your wallet, what is the purpose of fashion week if you can't virtually plan a shopping list for the coming season with an unlimited budget of course.
This was one of my most anticipated collections, Ellery always has such a charm in her designs and use of colour. The first outfit with the silver shorts and animals ears on another designer might make you question if it's Mickey Mouse's distant futuristic relation but with Ellery, she makes you want to wear them and not take them off. They two jackets are such a stunning display of the syncronicity between the cut of the jacket, the colour and the material texture.
Watson x Watson so recently came onto my radar, but I fell in love instantly. It's such a chic mix of Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant influences. Those khaki military shorts are definitely going onto my list- duck face optional.
I really enjoy the playful quality in Alice McCall's collection. Everything from the colour pallette, to the cutouts and the prints was all so fun. It definitely wasn't a collection that took itself too seriously, and it was a nice break from all the impending winter gloom.
Now, Michael Lo Sordo's collection was definitely one that made me want to rip off my clothes and run after those long limbed models. The clothes may not fit, but perfection motivation for the gym right? I love the mirrored digital prints and adore that red dress. Granted, every woman needs the perfect LBD but sometimes there's situations where only the LRD (little red dress) would do.
What's on your list? You know what they say, it's not over until your virtual basket is overflowing!
p.s. promise there will be an outfit post before the next MBFW round up. All this fashion juices flying around in the air here, I'm more motivated to stay behind my computer and virtual stalk rather than play in my wardrobe. patience :)
