Things We Might Have Mentioned Yesterday, But Forgot
Wednesday, September 27, 2006
We meant to point out that there were also some runway nods to the graphic black and white look, which we like because we're currently very into our new copy of Qui Etes-Vous Polly Maggoo?, the source of the mod image above.

And, because I started to get a little tired of all that clicking, I really didn't give too much love to the bottom of the alphabet. Luckily, I went back and took another look through, and finally saw Y & Kei's New York collection, which I really liked. Like everything else, nothing is too new or crazy – but the monochromatic looks and vintage-inspired cuts are very attractive and wearable. And really, at the end of the day, isn't that what you want from your clothes?
Also: I am still really enjoying Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan's no-holds-barred blog commentary on the shows. For example, here's my favorite comment from yesterday: "We finally made it to the Belstaff show. We will discuss the specifics of it later but let's just say that any collection that includes a see-through flight suit deserves our full wrath." I'm not sure if she's speaking in the royal "we" or what (we are guilty of that ourselves quite often, like right now), but: fantastic!
