On Friday, September 7th, I attended the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion presentation of By Misha. I love the whimsical themes of By Misha’s collections. The Autumn/Winter 2012 line, Crown Jewels, was fairytale-inspired (read my review of that collection here). The theme of this year’s collection is Wishing Well, and features charmeuse and chiffon fabrics in shades of honeysuckle, mint, forest, marmalade and crème brulee. Beautiful organza pearl flowers stood out as a strong characteristic of this collection, as they adorned romantic dresses, skirts and tops. Modest sequin detailing is also prominent in some of the clothing in Wishing Well. Hey, a girl’s got to have a little sparkle.
On September 14, 2011, designer duo Phillipe and David Blond presented their Spring 2012 collection Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. They are the designers behind some of the most eccentric outfits worn by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha and Lady Gaga. The collection featured various recreations of the looks of Playboy bunnies and featured wild pops of color, multi-colored shimmering corsets, and furry balls.
What I found interesting is that there are pieces in the collection that I would actually wear and love to own….well, maybe not the metallic Playboy bunny bodysuit. But, for once, Lady Gaga and I have a fashion label we love in common.
