Works of Art

A trend that was starting to appear last season has exploded at the f/w 2011 shows. Many designers have took to treating clothing more like a canvas than just plain old fabric. The drama and detail of these pieces comes more from the fun graphics than the silhouettes, tailoring or embellishments. These quirky motifs have certainly sold me. In my opinion fashion is supposed to be fun and it doesn't get much more fun than this. (But also totally cool and wearable for the most part.)

Mary Katrantzou was definitely on board with this trend last season but this season she crammed in even more colour and patten. She went with a lot of bold florals but also took inspiration from goldfish and japanese gardens. She also put a new spin on her full structured lampshade-like skirts from last season which I love (but I am curious to see how someone would sit down in them).

Marc By Marc Jacobs took the animal route with cute jumping-deer wedge booties and linear cat prints.

Holly Fulton did prints of lips and cities, along with elegant women's hands holding guns.

At Basso and Brooke is was all about gloomy seasides with occasional peacock feathers and statue heads. I love the trench and dress combo, the colours are amazing.

Not sure how to describe this one but it is definitely a motif and definitely quirky.
