Haute Off The Runway

Two things I know for sure:

  1. Fashion Week can be either a celebration of one's own creativity, a collaboration with another, or the Chanel bag that takes street-style's centre stage. (Or all of the above)
  2. In this insta-driven world, the only thing more pressing than nailing the finale walk is who can get the shot up first, albeit blurred iphone photos and the wrong hashtags. Oops.

Rather than spending the 5 minutes I have to spare writing out what I think about the collections, three words to wrap up the shows thus far:

Grunge, 90s, Femme

I know its not much to go by, but you get the gist- and if its anything to go by, it seems YSL's new designer Anthony Vaccarello has paved the way. Lace fringing, sparkles and contrasted against black ripped cotton and for the sake of keeping it Aussie- RM's for footwear.
