It's hard for me to remember specific cake.

I started writing this a while ago, but I've just been in a post and pre-birthday whirl plus my mom has put me on a strict no-computer punishment(damn you Tumblr, for being so addictive and making me stay up until 4am on a school night!!!)(I'm glad I don't have to worry about school anymore!!!)

A few weeks ago I talked to some people about coming to an event and they were all like"Sure, you can come, wereawesomepeople" and I was all like "thanks" and this thing doesn't start until June but I went to a cocktail party for it on Monday!!!
I don't have any pictures of me at the event, which is why I'm being so secretive about it.
Hopefully I'm getting my camera on my birthday(May 24!!!!!:))(4 DAYS!!!!)
so I will be able to take pictures at the event(s)!!
(I will give you a clue though: Modern Atlanta)
anyway, there is more AW10 to review....
Richard Chai
Although this season isnt as good as last season
(I don't know why I expected anything less than AWESOME from Richard Chai.He helped launch Marc by Marc Jacobs and he was taking classes at Parsons when he was 13.)
Everything I said about Rag and Bone can be said for this, but this is like the homeless/Ivy League version(In a really good way)
minus the part about the prints.
Does that make sense to anybody but me?

Did anyone else notice the INSANE Proenza Spring2010 connection?
The rolled-up sleeves/fingerless gloves and the Grunge-ish sleeves-tied-around-the-waist!!!EPICEPICEPIC!! Proenza Schouler is one of (if not my most) favorite womenswear lines. (Jack and Lazaro need to do Menswear, like NAO!I'm just sayin')
PSchouler Spring10 was like, the. best. ever.
And it made me so jealous that women got all that AMAZINGNESS.
This collection has soothed some of that jealz-ness.
Thank You Richard Chai!!
(Not that I can buy any of this anyway.)
(I'll just wait a few years until its on Gilt :))

I feel like the stuff I said about the house of Etro in mty last AWFW10 post could be taken as me bashing them for there excessive use of prints and MAXIMALIST aesthetic.(even though I followed the comment with confessing my undying love for them, I believe the word "adore" came into play.)
But let me clear that up right now with a feeling I had while looking through there latest collection:
I want everything in this entire collection( which kinda sounds like entire confectionloll:)))anybody?.........Bueller?........
I think at some point in my life, I can see myself being minimal, like wearing like 5 things(under-clothes included) and just being happy with it, but not right now.
Right now I wanna be the guy wearing a suede blazer and jodhpurs or Meggings, spats and a Furby on my arm(HOT DATE!!lol) or a purple suede trench and green velvet pants.
AKA The Etro AW10 Man!
The color palette of this season is refreshingly dark (oxymoron?)
Composed of mainly dark blues, browns, greens and purples, it totally goes against the traditional, vivid  Etro look that we've all grown to love.
This newfound darkness at the house of Etro is appreciated by the goth in me.
The references to nature/toys that wont stfu were obvious as were the desperate attempts to inject color into the oft drab winter wardrobe, My favorites being the AMAZING(!!!) WTWTA-ish(I love that movie) coat.
and just when I thought the gloriously quirky darkness of the collection would never end, they throw in these spectaculah light browns and amazing poppy green colors.
Yo Fashion Week, I'm really happy for you and I'ma let you finish, but Kean Etro has the BEST SENSE OF COLOR(AND HOW/WHEN TO USE IT) OF ALL TIME. OF ALL TIME!!!!!
lol but forealz, all Kanye-isms aside, Kean is a master with colors. You would think that a splash of light colors would kinda sabotage a predominately dark collection, but they don't, they add depth and beauty to an already deep and beautiful collection.

well, the Spring2011 shows are almost here and I'm still reviewing the Fall shows (I'm sorry, I'm a failure)
I promise Spring/Summer 2011 will be betterlol!
The next post is an outfit post!!!!

p.s. FUCK YES!!!
