Reegardez: Marni Fall/Winter 2010

There's no doubt that the Marni sense of color is exceptional—and a big part of the attraction, as it makes for favorite pieces with a long life. This collection had some wacky ideas: big, jazzy seventies upholstery-type patterns smothered all over suits and matching bags; tops with 3-D stand-out peplums over bulky skirts.These looks can certainly be carried off by chic women whose personal style shines through to make them modern and relevant. But would seem quit at home in a museum.
 As a matter of fact this season so far many of the designers have a been looking to themselves for inspiration. Delving within archives and coming out with "the best of" what they do. We saw this at Marc Jacobs in New York and we saw it on this past Sunday at Dolce & Gabbanna. D&G are known for there use of black and white polka dots, leopard print, and Men's tailoring on women.  During there presentation a video of the designers creating the collection and the seamstresses who aided played as a backdrop. It is the re-telling of an old story that seems to catch the attention of the editors these days. We will have to see what Paris will have to offer, Myself and the rest of the fashion industry are waiting to see what will become of the house of Alexander Mcqueen.
