So you all know that I was less-than-enamored with the Posen-Jacobs fugfest of Spring 2010. However, all the editors out there love, love, loved. I thought I must have missed something, so I called on Fancy Fashion Person Alison Baenen from Style.com to school me. The take-home? I need to lighten up. Spring 2010 is party-time, excellent.
Dear Nana Banana,
Hi! This is fun. Thanks so much for asking me to be on your lovely blog.
It's interesting that you called out these two collections in particular, and it makes me think you must be more of a fancy fashion person than you give yourself credit for. Both of these shows were big turning points for these designers. For Zac, this was a huge departure from his usual super-glam, forties-inspired–-and, occasionally, over-the-top--red carpet fare. For Marc, he proved that he's perennially capable of turning trends on their heads: He completely abandoned the eighties tack he took last season (which subsequently appeared everywhere) and went in a totally new direction.
