>> In my personal opinion, the fall collections were painfully weak -- with a few exceptions, of course. Style.com has just named their Top 10 collections, so let's have the run down:
Balenciaga: I agree on this one -- I love Nic's work. And not just because he's cute.
Comme des Garcons: I always love to see what Rei comes up with, and I've always had a soft spot for androgyny, so I will agree on this one as well. The masks were way cool.
Lanvin: Lanvin was a big disappointment for me -- the collection seemed so plain -- I expected more from Alber. So I disagree.
Marc Jacobs: I've discovered that Marc Jacobs is like cheese for me -- it grows better with time. I hated this collection at first, but I foresee it being very influential, so I will go ahead and agree on this one.
Marni: This collection just didn't do anything for me -- nothing outstanding, nothing that flipped my switch. Disagree.
Narciso Rodriguez: There was one dress in this collection that I liked (left) -- the rest, well, I feel like it just made the list because Narciso is one of Anna's favorites. Disagree.
Prada: Bah. Miuccia highly disappointed me with this bomb of a collection. The fur-sleeved coat (right), anyone? Disagree.
Proenza Schouler: Another Anna favorite. I was looking forward to their collection -- usually I really like it -- but "kaboom" should illustrate my feeling accurately for you. Disagree.
Rochas: Two words: the crows. Agree.
Yves Saint Laurent: There were some pieces that I really didn't like in this collection, but some of the details were so amazing that they outway the bad. Agree.
But where was Preen? Luella? McQueen? Viktor & Rolf? to name a few... I feel like the top 10 list is the same list of Anna's favorites every year. Maybe that's just me.
