Psynopsis LFW Emilio de la Morena Dress AW11
The world of fashion is a weird and wondrous place – One day you queue and doors get shut into your face, the next you happen to spend your day sitting front row next to Sarah Mower (who a. advised me to do an internship at Louise Goldin. b. had already been to Mary Katrantzou in the morning and said it was 'very good', and c. explained she couldn't go to men's wear day because it was 'Gucci in Milan' today. Duh! Keep up, silly blogeresse!)

Maybe I feared to obscure Sarah's view, maybe I didn't want to lessen the experience, but I did not take any photos of the Marios Schwab show which I absolutely adored for its 'minimalism with a twist' designs. And while much more lady-like, intricate and layered the silhouettes at Emilio de la Morena were quite similar.

Summary: Red shoes are hot. I want a tight leather-wool Marios Schwab dress. No flats in sight, and let's sharpen our pencil skirts for winter.

The detailing on these . . . simple and luxurious. I would adore feeling that against my skin! And I'm thrilled to see that red shoes are hot this year. I just got my pair of red wood platforms/clogs for summer, and I look forward to a stunning red wedge for fall.

Wow, wow, wow! Just amazing pics. Wish I'd been there too!

Filipa said...

These pictures are fabulous- I love the look of luxury clothes, I just love close ups of any desginer clothes, it reminds me why they cost so much- because of such an amazing quality! :) I wish I had the money to afford them haha!

Vintage Vixen said...

The top dress is amazing, it just screams high end, doesn't it? Great pictures. xxx

Kristin said...

OMG...that last look is especially amazing!

Kazuko said...

can't believe it - this is simply amazing (sorry there's no other word for that). your pictures are super beautiful - and i'm super jealous! no, i'm happy for you. great job!

Fashionistable said...

Beautiful shots. It is amazing how or our perception of other people stop us doing things we would otherwise do. I am so guilty of this too. Sorry I missed you. Feeling a little better this evening. Lots of empty tissue boxes around me though. Xxxx

INTRO TO MY LIFE said...

very cool and true story, in fashion one day your no one and the next day your everything. great photos

SabinePsynopsis said...

Please be, Kazuko. Honestly I felt like a bit like I had fallen into 'The Devil Wears Prada' when the woman whose fashion knowledge and sharp observation I've been admiring from afar suddenly introduced herself to me.

vint junky said...

Oh my giddy aunt! Sabine!! Not only are the pictures fantastic, I a) am in awe of you being front row b) incredibly chuffed for you about the Louise Goldin suggestion and c) can't believe you didn't know it was gucci in milan today...ok, I'm kidding on the last one :P
But yes, um, WOW. What a day!!!

Ps. I'm gonna have to get the yoga togs on if I'm to squeeze into something like these incredible tight dresses. Man, they are gorrrrgeous ;)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh yes to pencil skirts, red shoes {not flats} and tight dresses!!! Just gorgeous, love :) xoxo

Veshoevius said...

Oh wow Sarah Mower - I would have been totally intimidated - Fantastic shots Sabine - I really love the first one! Wish I could have seen more shows - will have to be more organised next season.

what a great dress!

Dancing Branflake said...

That first dress is AMAZING! I am with you on the whole pencil skirt thing. I bought a few this winter and let me tell you how much more flattering they are than a full skirt.

Beautiful details.

Red shoes ARE hot, and are even hotter with a violet hued dress, apparently. Lovely inspiration from that last one.

And how awesome that you took these pics! They look amazing. I've never been to a fashion show, so I'm quite impressed.

Maddy said...

So glad your luck took a turn for the better and that you got to sit front row at a show, you lucky girl :)I bet it was quite the experience! And I don't blame you for not taking pictures. Sometimes those moments are meant to be relished and not viewed through the viewfinder of your camera :)

Great photos! The detail on the dress is amazing. Sounds like you're having a fantastic time!

red shoes are definitely a style staple that I saw from show to show, just so glad there was so much colour this season even thought it was autun winter, these are some really lovely shots. xx

Sounds like a wonderful experience. yes, the fashion world is indeed a bizarre place. I think the same every time the invites start coming in for the fashion week. Just a couple of years ago, it was just a distant dream to actually be invited by the designers.

In fact, it's the fashion week around the corner that has gotten me out of my blogging break. Looking forward to the fashion madness that's about to begin.

Orchid said...

wow what fun it must have been!!!wanna see what yoo wore on those days...love your detailed trend observations...cheers!!!

Haute World said...

Gorgeous pics and I'm in awe of the first two dresses. I don't know anyone who could pull of the third though (at least not in real life). I'm so glad you got to go to a few shows. By the way, I very rarely take pics at shows, because I feel I miss so much when I'm focused on taking good pics. It's the main reason I omit Fashion Week from my blog (I also find that focusing too much on 'reviewing' dampens my experience, FW coverage is clearly not my forte). So no worries about not snapping the Schwab show. And yay for good friends. I'm still thanking one for getting me to a certain coveted Monday afternoon show...

ediot said...

Take care

Oooh, SAbine, GORGEOUS shots. I love this: I haven't had a chance to see any of your posts til now, and I love how - of course - we'll be posting about the same things, but with our own eyes. And yet because our 'eye' is similar, as is our thinking, there will be overlap. The shots I was going to do from Emilio's show - the looks I liked the best - are exactly these. And since we were sitting next to each other, it's not surprising they'll be similar.

It's funny you said you didn't want to bother Sarah Mower by taking photos. I've had those kind of feelings at times: there was a wonderfully cooperative kinship feeling with a lot of strangers packed together at these shows. Intense, lovely little exchanges and sometimes friendships springing up simply by sitting in close proximity to someone - or in my case, often kneeling on the floor between the front rows. Only once or twice was there a skirmish: one big bloke to my right, at Ashish, fighting with the nice blogging bloke to my left. I tried to intervene but this guy had no interest in fighting with a girl. He was threatening to get poor Adam thrown out of LFW.. apart from that, people were so lovely. And man, am I off on a tangent! Well it's good that there's no limit to comments... is there? : )

Your writing makes me smile, as does being around you. Keep up, silly blogeresse!

See you soon I hope. xox

Sarah's amazing isn't she.. don't know how she does all the things she does. How did you end up next to her? I seem to have missed something here... I thought you were a translator?? Very cool, anyway...

SabinePsynopsis said...

4th Daughter - I think most of us bloggers lead several lives, since blogging doesn't exactly put the bread on the table. I DO have a fashion blog though...

That first dress - I would kill for it ... coz clearly I would never be able to afford it ;)
