Didn't see this one coming? Me neither! I always dreamed that one day I'll have a cool Polaroid camera and I'd take cool pictures with super expensive film. That's unlikely now - they've stopped the production of of those cameras and now they are closing down the factories that produce the films. Oh the sadness! And now I want to take Polaroid pictures even more.
It also makes me think about iconic fashion houses and their products that are deemed as everlasting classics. You know, that bag, that other bag, that silk carf, those ballerinas, that blazer....Which one of them will be the first to go? They might be hugely in demand today and it's true that the luxury biz is as popular and common as McDonalds, but the times, the times they are a-changing'.
To lighten up the mood a bit, here are some of my favorites from the NYFW shows for fall 2008.
Alexandre Herchcovitch. This is just really cute and wearable and with nice details and patterns and colours. That is sometimes enough.
Alexander Wang. Modeled by Iris Strubegger, who isn't German like I told you before, but Austrian. Pants, hood, zipper and something furry = will do.
Must say I really enjoyed certain shows, but not really. They were all lacking that certain something I was looking for - and I think Calvin Klein under Francisco Costa's helm became the closest. I wish I could just touch all the materials in these pictures...to see if they changed my overall opinion.
