Lindsey Wixson for Barneys

I know I have promised a post about Lindsey Wixson, and I will follow through as soon as Paris Fashion Week is over, but in the mean time, revel in her awesomeness (and her gray hair) for the Barneys fall catalogue.

LOVE: Peter Pilotto Spring 2011

There are so many awesome things about Peter Pilotto's spring 2011 collection that I don't know where to begin, but I'll try, so here we go...

1. I love the drapery he did on his clothes and how a lot of the dresses are draped but structured at the same time.

Julien Macdonald spring 2011

I love Julien Macdonald's spring 2011 collection.

Her dresses are girly, ethereal and just downright adorable.  I also love the two coats pictured below, I would love to wear the beige and white one.  Macdonald's collection is not modern or really anything that is groundbreaking, but the world is always in need of more pretty dresses.

Burberry Spring 2011

Burberry got a lot of criticism for its spring 2011 collection.

I think it's because last season's collection was so strong and managed to stay true to Burberry's roots but also be modern at the same time.  This season, Christopher Bailey went too modern in some people's eyes.  That being said, I like the collection, but it doesn't strike me as something I would find in the Burberry section of a store.

People are saying Bailey is so caught up in trying to make Burberry this fast-paced and technologically advanced company that this season he made clothes that aren't lasting and carrying an impact.

What do you think about the collection?

Obsessed: Alexander Wang in high def video

I am loving this video that compiles footage from Alexander Wang's Spring 2010 and Fall 2010 shows.

It's so high-energy and exciting, and it shows (in case you had any doubts) how awesome Wang's clothes are.

Charlotte Ronson's '90s revival

So, I happen to think Charlotte Ronson's spring collection was AWESOME.

I love the throwback to the grungy, '90s era, and I think Ronson did an awesome job creating a collection for the cool, street-chic girl.

As I mentioned before in a previous post, I adore the fact that Ronson is bringing back tying your jacket around your waist.  Regardless of how nerdy or uncool it might look, I'd really adore it if a few other designers would hop on the function train as well.

Also, I am loving these maxi dresses, and I will openly admit that I hated maxi dresses this time last year.  I thought they were weird and unflattering, but the more designers tweak them and make them more attractive and cooler, I am starting to be obsessed.  I would wear the maxi dresses in Ronson's collection in a heartbeat.

Derek Lam Spring 2011

I think Derek Lam's spring 2011 collection was one of my favorites from New York Fashion Week.

A lot of designers channeled the '70s, but I feel like Lam did it with a modern minimalism that really made his collection stand out from the rest.

As a side note, I am also obsessed with the last three dresses in this post.

LOVE: Backstage at Proenza Schouler by Tommy Ton

These photos are so awesome, they give you a really close-up of Proenza Schouler's gorgeous/hip spring 2011 collection.

Anouck Lepere for Flair October 2010

I love this shoot by Jean-Francois Campos for the October issue of Flair.

Anouck Lepere looks stunning, and I especially love the first picture because you so rarely see models blurred in magazine spreads.

Favorite shoes at NY Fashion Week

There were so many awesome shoes at NY Fashion Week, but I picked out my personal favorites.  Tell me other shoes you loved, I want to know what to look for!

Also, one thing I learned from looking for the shoes I liked is that even the prettiest models have the grossest feet, so strange.

And for the grand finale... the shoes everyone has been talking about: Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte *swoon*
