Alexander Wang and Christian Dior‘s SS10 collections were about as polar opposite as you could get. Both also, managed to epitomise the Fashion Week city that they showed in; Wang in New York and Dior in Paris. I did the first post of the year on SS10 Trends and while researching, totally fell in love with the sporty trend epitomised by Wang’s collection; the layering, the colours, the shapes and the pure casualness of it. But, I just never dress that, down.
On the other hand I also adored the outer-underwear trend, which John Galliano made Dior’s own; the femininity, the simple lines, the craftsmanship and the utter sexiness of it. But this is not a look for everyday Dublin. So I’m thinking of mixing the two ideas together, (trust me, if I could, I would be wearing both designers this post and these photos are merely a nod to both trends!).
So, instead, I’m mixing up Jersey, Lycra and pretty lace, along with some Prada-esque hair and a bit of ‘ghetto’ bling. to dreate a look that takes the casualness of the Sport trend and the ultra-feminine feel of the underwear trend. More photos and outfit details at Her Apparel.
