Layers in Fall... Groundbreaking...

This Fall I am uninspired, maybe it is because I no longer yearn to own the latest ready-to-wear or I am at the juncture where I know what I like and what bores me. Don't get me wrong seeing Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell walk-in Louis Vuitton for Kim Jones' last show was a highlight, but should it have been? My previous affinity for the relaxed street style of last Fall has been replaced with more Structure and Textures. Raw edges from Balmain or a light blue puff jacket by 3.1 Phillip Lim. I'm thinking practical and yet stylish day wear. Yohji Yamamoto proved that Fall is not just about layers but the varying textiles presented in a look. Rick Owens will always be a conceptual soft spot for wearable and simply art. The creative balance lapsed this season, whether it was to make headlines, archives or simply to be commercially viable.. Fall 18... there are few diamonds but they sure a bright.
