Trend: FlameOn

Maybe I’ve been reading too many 90’s grunge blogs or listening to too much Die Antwoord, but I think it’s safe to assume that there will be a revival of tacky, Harley Davidson-esque flame print in the immediate future.

Just take the brand spankin’ new Nasty Gal vintage lookbook, featuring the queen of 90’s grunge herself, Niki Takesh. Those nails? Killer!

Of course this trend has been popping up on the S/S runways of Jeremy Scott, PradaAlexander McQueen and I’m sure more. My most favorite is a bit of a flashback; from Daniel Palillo F/W 2010. I love the elegant structure combined with a usually tacky print.

However, as Jeffrey Campell‘s latest bomb, the Flame Litas prove, not all flame print works. My suggestion: moderation if you’re thinking about taking this print for a spin.

Until then… I had to.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2012

Marc Jacobs‘ spring collection is a lovely shift towards the dainty and delicate, but not without a little edge. The show itself contained a miraculous white carousel at the epicenter on which the models sat poised in delicate laces and sheer pastels. The bags themselves are tough crocodile and leathers made dainty by the light springtime coloring.

Alexander McQueen Spring 2012

The late great Alexander McQueen lives on through the eyes of designer Sarah Burton. While this Spring collection might not be as dramatic as one would expect from McQueen himself, the pieces overall are equally as breathtaking. The garments are literally dripping with gold; the shoes are to die for and the gowns are extraordinary. There’s a wonderful variety of pleating, lavish collars and headpieces, intricate beading, shimmery fabrics, ruffled layers and metallic accents. The collection is a mythical journey into the extravagant lives of underwater goddesses.

This collection has a definite rock ‘n’ roll gypsy vibe with a concentration on bringing things to the center with accessories like: belts, corsets and waist ties. It’s all in the details as the models were adorned with rockabilly up-do’s, piles of punky jewelry and faint tattoos reminiscent of blue pattern china.

I wasn’t so keen on the rest of the collection. However, this dress is to DIE for.
