Just, Memorable

"But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not lapis, it's actually cerulean. You're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn't it, who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of 8 different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of stuff."
-Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

I LOVE the Emilio Pucci collection.
I am studying a bit of Emilio Pucci work from the sixties for my textiles exam and it's very different compared to the items back then.

I also love Alexander Wang, it's all beautiful what he's done for fall.
