New York Fashion Week reviews

Since today, I will write some of my posts in english, as I want to improve my skils and make my blog more understandable for the foreign readers. As New York Fashion Week took place last week, I made some personal reviews for the most important collections there. I'm really sorry that my video materials are in romanian, so I will write some of the most significant details in english for you.
Diane von Furstenberg was one of the first designers to show her fall/winter 2011 collection, paying a tribute to American Legends. Diane Vreeland, Gloria Vanderbilt and Milicent Rogers were the iconic american women that inspired the designer. I have to admit that I was impressed by the embroideries and the jewel embellishments of the black dress and by the big hats that models wore on the runway. They were so Diane Vreeland style.

Vicktoria Beckham didn't impress me at all, even if she got some credits for her latest activity in fashion. She made a good collection, but not a "wow" one, at least I didn't expect one. I like her first collaboration with Louboutin and I strongly feel that these boots will make a statement in some celebrity wardrobes.
It looks like Carolina Herrera payed a tribute to Jackie Kennedy with her A-lined dresses and skinny belts to mark the waists. I think that they are a first lady's must and Michelle Obama has to think about her future choices before going for a british designer instead of an american one. The furs made a very good detail of luxury and elegance. Every silk gown with tulle accents had an "Oscar" on it.
"Pearls of Wisdom " by Donna Karan is certainly one of my favourite collections from this season as the designer managed to put together nude tints, dominating the collection, with elegant shapes and drapped lines to show the lean silhouettes. The soft wool dresses made a remarcable attempt to combine with satin scarfs as the designer knew how to pay attention to the details- a fact also proved by the silk scarves, the slim belts and the micro pearls and sequins on some pieces.
Michael Kors celebrated his 30 years of creation with both clothes for women and men composing a collection inspired by the period when he started his career-late 70's -early 80's. Well I like the extralarge cashmere sweaters wore with monochrome silk pants and the jumpsuits which he brought back from the early disco 80's. He also used pastel colours and some fur details that seem to be as trendy as they were in the last season.

Enjoy the videos:

  1. Gabi, super articol. Mi-a placut.Ai o mica "greseluta"(n-o lua în nume de rau) la partea " on the runaway". Daca ai avut în vedere "pista" atunci e "runway" fara "a"; cu "a" inseamna "fugitiv", depinde de context.
    Ei, dar nu-i pe asta, articole mai multe sa shie:))))

  2. P.S. It`s called RUNWAY Gabi (as in Pasarela), not runaway (as in The Runaway Bride).

    Per total, suna bine, desi, in opinia mea ar trebui revazuta topica cuvintelor si un eventual "imprumut" benefic de expresii tip "fashion slang", care, willy-nilly, ofera credibilitate si forta discursurilor/analizelor/editorialelor de acest gen. Un inceput bun si suna mult mai profi, ba chiar natural in engleza.

    Perseverenta, consecventa si vizionarism iti doresc!

    Sincerely, Anna Wintour von Blairwaldorfsen.

  3. Mersi mult! probabil a fost ceva mecanic, citesc prea multa presa de profil in engleza ca sa admit asa ceva:) Imi pare foarte bine ca lumea ma intelege si ma apreciaza! Va multumesc mult

  6. Sunt greseli care se fac din ignoranta si altele din simpla neatentie. Nu cred ca Gabi nu stia cum se scrie Louboutin, pur si simplu i-a scapat din vedere. Off lumea asta numai cauta nod în papura.

  9. I guess that I wrote too fast so I didn't manage to see this mistake. Thank you!

  11. Maria, am zis ca sunt un fel de personal reviews, adica ceea ce vad eu si cum vad eu colectiile! Nu-mi permit, efectiv sa vbesc atit de avansat despre moda!
    Ala de mai sus care ma corectea-za atit de bine stie engleza incit imi scrie intr-o romana proasta, fara semne elementare de punctuatie?:)))
    Sa-mi zici si mie concret care au fost greselile din acea fraza(pentru ca daaaaa, e fraaaazaa si nu propozitie);)
    Da Tzugui cine e si ce are cu asta?)))
    Mersi tuturor

  12. Cam cel care te-a corectat are dreptate.In primul rind "write" este incorect utilizat, trebuie folosit in acest context in care ai vrut sa te exprimi la timpul trecut "wrote". Ai scris "toofast" in loc de "too fast". Si se scrie "didn't" nu "didin't" cum ai scris tu. Cred ca ar trebui sa atragi mai multa atentie cind cineva te corecteaza si sa nu primesti critica asa de agresiv. Si ce sens are fraza ori propozitie, tu nici macar un cuvint corect nu stii sa il scrii.

  13. Stiu engleza destul de bine, dar totusi am vrut sa verifi spelling-ul in word la fraza:
    “ I guess that I wrote too fast so I didn't manage to see this mistake. Thank you!”, si sa vedeti nu a gasit nici o greseala, wow!!!
    Bravo Gabi!!!
    Anonim you suck!!!

  14. Mai, oameni nu mai cautati nod in papura, I write am scris la general si nu la trecut, or eu am facut 12 clase de englza si citeva nivele bune de ILTC ca sa stiu forma 2 a verbului iregulat write..adica write wrote written...didn't e clar ca buna ziua ca e o greseala mecanica la fel ca si too fast ..iar Tnk you a fost o simpla prsecurtare! Inafara faptului ca va raspund "corectarilor" de pe blog, eu muncesc si nu am timp sa verific anumite greseli pe care le fac si in romana, din simpla neatentie!
    Traducere! Se pare ca scriu prea repede, nu am reusit sa observ gresela.

  18. am vrut sa spun neregulat...
    Nu inteleg, daca acest blog este de rahat, atunci de ce pla va mai pierdeti timpul pe aici, nu aveti chestii personale, sau chestii de interes personal? pe bloglovin exista o baza de aproximativ 6000 de bloguri de moda, nu aveti decit sa intrati si sa alegeti de acolo!
    Cel mai mult apreciez oamenii care intradevar vor sa ma corecteze si sa ma ajute...aia imi scriu pe facebook, nu sub anonimatul "curajului" lor...Culmea e ca anonimii astia de p-aci se tavalesc pe undeva si in lista mea de frenzi de acolo:)))

  19. Mda nu stii Romana...

  21. ce conteaza cum a scris primul sau articol ? sunt SUTE de blogeritze pe bloglovin care scriu de MAI MULTI ani in engleza si au foarte, foarte multe greseli..IDEEA ESTE SA FIE INTELES CONTINUTUL, MESAJUL SUBIECTULUI POSTAT .. :D iar aici chiar e ok totul...
    Anonim, pur si simplu acceptati ca nu v-ar duce capu nici atita sa faceti )) heyyy moldova moldova, numai la noi asa invidie pentru concetateni, nimeni nu se bucura de succesul celuilalt.. desi cheltuiti banii lui tati si invatati prin Europa, departe va este mentalitatea de cea a europenilor..!
    Gabi nu le atrage multa atentie )) popularitatea creste, tu muncesti - asta conteaza!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Da cel putin stii sa scrii un cuvint,inafara de aceasta nimic. Rusine ma frate sa nu stii ca se scrie iregular si nu "iregulat"!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Repet, oamenii care intradevar vor sa ma corecteze si in fata carora ma inchin si le multumesc, imi scriu direct pe facebook, fara sa-si ascunda identitatea! Repet in al doilea rind:fratilor, eu stau intr-o redactie cu 50 de oameni care muncesc si care comunica, in voce, paralel muncesc si eu si nu am timp sa ma concentrez la anumite greseli pe care le scap atunci cind raspund tutoro profesorilor de pe aici!
    PS!"Mda da tare proasta esti si urita,in poze parca nu ai git,si agresiva. " e clar cu tine:))))zi mersi ca ma abtin si nu te trimit la origine
