Burch-Borges Reviews

Check out Butterfly Diary and eye4style for great reviews of the Burch-Borges show last night. Here are some extras from moi:

This guy (designer John Mollett) is ballsy and not afraid of color and embellishment;
I love that he uses an older male model who looks like he's been hibernating in the mountains to open and close his shows. Again, balls;

The other models were so young some still had baby fat cheeks;

I want to get my husband one of the embroidered jackets; they're the contemporary interpretation of Gram Parson's Manuel jackets;

The woman's collection was a nice surprise. On the whole simple, classy, and am looking forward to seeing more in the future.

Some badly taken pictures:

Love the jacket on Mountain Man.

Love the dress version.

It was hot as heck in there. This would have been me & my sweaty underarms if I was on that runway.

And some short, wobbly videos:

Entrances/exits can be tough.

The fabulous peacock jacket.

That peacock jacket is unprecedented!

Can I just love you for knowing who Gram Parsons is???

I've often wondered what became of Gram's beautiful suits!

I wish I had known you were going to be there. I would have said hello in person!

Models that don't look slick and sleek and processed to hell? Is that LEGAL?

Danz said...

Lovely collection and yes, that peacock jacket is fabulous! *Sigh* I really want to go to NY Fashion Week one of these days.

Thanks so much for the great comment and feedback you left about my shoes! I've decided to keep them the way they are.

Have a great day luv :)
