Despite calling myself a fashion blogger, I don't think I've ever posted about runway trends. Personally, I always prefer reading blogs about street style/personal/vintage style than trend reports, and that's why I tend not to focus my own blog too much on specific designers. However, whilst on holiday, I was flicking though a magazine when I came across the most beautiful Autumn/Winter collection, which I just had to write about here.
Looking like it's straight out of the 1960s, Prada's AW 2010 show was just my cup of tea. My attention was mainly drawn by the stunning tan coloured coat above, complete with an oversized collar. I can easily imagine Twiggy striding through Carnaby Street clad in a similar piece. It has re-ignited my love of coats - the only problem being that I have to wait until autumn until I'll need to wear one! Hopefully the highstreet will take note: I'm really looking forward to seeing some more affordable versions on the rails in my usual shopping haunts.
Aside from the clothes, another notable feature was the hair: check out those beehives :D. The one disadvantage of having a bob is that I can't try out one for myself :( boooo.
Seeing these beautifully made clothes has inspired me to get back to work with my sewing machine! I recently acquired a real 60s dress at a carboot for just £2, so once I've re-hemmed it (yep, even 60s hemlines are too long... I blame being short!) expect to see another 60s themed post heading your way!
But in the meantime, I'm keen to know - what is your opinion on blog content? Do you prefer to read about personal style, or about runway collections? Or a mixture of both? Does it become a bit boring when you see the same collections plastered all over the blogosphere?
