New New York

OK. So I've been pre-occupied with Joburg Fashion Week (*ahem* ok, not really) and end of term work for college. Overworked and underpaid I always say. The last 2 days have spawned all the best New York collections. All thriller, no filler.

Rodarte - New-tribalism. 'Torn-away' dresses. Revealing. Tattooed. Acidic runway. Eartly colour clothes, but deep earth (like mud and tar).

Alexandre Herchcovitch
- purely coincidental choice of football inspired looks (he did show this collection a few months back in Sao Paulo). The similarity between this and Alexander Wang's show at the beginning of the week ends there.

Rad Hourani - slick as always and my favourite show so far. I am biased though. I love Rad's clothing so much. As always, its monochromatic (but not bore some even after so many seasons of technically similar jackets and ultra-thin trousers), unisex and now with added hints of silver and grey. Androgynie.

Jenni Kaye - Clean. Simple.

rad hourani is awesome, makes me want to slice up my leggings (I don't think it'd work so well though). jenni kaye's simple silver is lovely too...I like your selections. x
