Dolce & Gabanna Shoes for Spring/Summer 2010

Designer stuffs for the next season are releasing out through their runway shows and campaigns. Several designers are focusing on their shoe collections while others are on their haute couture and handbags.

For the upcoming season of spring and summer 2010 I don’t know what to expect for Dolce and Gabanna shoes. Similar to their last season’s shoe collection, they are almost always over the top and not realistic and functional for normal everyday apparels.

However, the spring /summer 2010 collection is fabulous in all of it’s street chic look. I love the way how this duo designer, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna conceptualized the use of partly black lace and fishnet material instead of using common ornaments to achieve its look.
It has details that extends to the sole of the shoe in some instance making into unfinished and unpolished look.

The superficial lace and fishnet works with the sandals to the conservative pumps of the designer. It is indeed the genius collection, but these are not my typical style yet if given a chance I must prefer to wear the burlap pumps with the fishnet “socks”.

D&G Shoes for Fall Winter 2009

The DS&G shoes are absolutely hideous. No single shoe from this collection I would wear even if they were freely given. Each design is a bulky wedge and seems those are not simple wedges at all!Sounds cliche!.

With do-respect to the duo designers, their designs are simply ugly and boring!

Why these shoes morph from other wedges?It looks like the hoof of a giant fat horse. In addition, the shoes from the collection were almost made of dull colored suede. Suede is excellent as an accent, but it is such a boring material for the entire shoe.The single shoe that could have been decorious is the pink bootie, but who wants a bubble gum pink bootie afterall.

I am not totally happy with the Dior Fall 2009 Shoe Collection!

Fame or Shame?

Vivienne Westwood Fall Winter 2009 Ad Campaign

The best in the West! Vivienne Westwood are still liking the beauty of hot and sexy Baywatch body, Pamela Anderson for her Fall/Winter 2009 Advertising campaign.

The best campaign ever! This is my first time to see the designer and her model in front of an Ad campaign. It is rare and amazing to see the designer featured in her own advertising campaign. Truly personal and memorable! I love this collaboration of Pamela Anderson Vivienne Westwood for the campaign.

The campaign was shot by photographer Juergen Teller in a London studio featuring Pamela Anderson with Vivienne Westwood and her beloved husband Andreas Krnothaler as her creative partner in a series of jittery photo shots with a cheeky sense of humor.

The latest campaign was considered as the second successful ads following the Spring/Summer 09 campaign which also present the trio shots of Juergen who has partnered Vivienne for the fifth season.

The New Missoni Ads by Ryan McGinley

Photos of Missoni’s Fall/Winter Ad Campaign are out with an excellent effort of Ryan McGinley’s magical lens. He shoot for Stella McCartney’s latest Bambi-assisted campaign, as well as ads for Wrangler, Levi’s, and Girbaud.


The young photographer made a splash in 1998 with his excellent photographs of his nude friends larking in the fields and lingering in bathtubs. He has also tried his hand at modeling of late. After Juergen Teller shot him for a Gap Campaign in 2008, he also encouraged

McGinley to star in Marc Jacobs’ Menswear Campaign for Spring 2009.
The new Missoni campaign shot by McGinley with model Hanne Gaby Odiele windswept while riding in the back of a pick-up truck dressed to the nines and for men’s campaign featuring Devin Childers. Both were shot at Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field in late May.

McGinley joins an impressive array of photographers who’ve took some effort for Missoni campaigns for past seasons including Steven Meisel, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, Mario Testino, and Mario Sorrenti.

Miu Miu Fall 2009 Shoe Collection

The Prada’s little sister, Miu Miu showed us some very unique and fashionable shoes for their 2009 Fall Collection. Miu Miu shoes ‘ styles were paired with jeweled socks.

We can see variety of tan-colored and strapped shoes around the ankle which is to be the hot subject of most designers this season. Fur was also used in many of the Miu Miu collections.
Miuccia Prada presented three distinct styles of shoes.

The first distinct style was bland with all of the unremarkable designs in a khaki color. These kind of shoes would be excellent for office or in business attire.

The second distinct style was a fur covered heel and ankle strap. Functional or not? If you wear this type of shoes outdoors the back will look like a wet animal, especially the ones with fur lining.

Miuccia Prada debuted to the third style which was heavily embellished satin pump. These shoes looked like a bunch of pailettes piled on top of the vamp and it was a very blunt contrast to the clean and finely stitched pailette pumps from the last season’s collections.

Booting Up for Fall 2009

Prepare yourself for the upcoming snowy season with functional and stylish boots in your wardrobe. Trendy boots are the epitome of Fall accessories for our feet and perhaps, this is one of the most fashionable and practical pieces in our closet.

Personally, I’m very much addicted to this stuff. A stylish boot is easy to pair with jeans and a knit jacket. Truly functional because it keep our feet warm and comfortable while we are slogging on snow, rain, or in a slush. Boots can truly turn an outfit into a fabulous and dramatic way.

So it should come as no surprise for us that they are “IN” this Fall 2009 and I do consider as Fall staple for our fashion statement.

An array of combat boots, ankle boots, thigh highs boots, classic boots will grace your Fall ready-to-wear fashion life. So no matter what your shoe personal preference is, Boots are always present!

The snow covered campaign was shot by Eric Valli at Sweden’s famous Ice Hotel with an excellent coordination of a Brazilian supermodel, Raquel Zimmermann.

Eric Valli was an international acclaimed photographer behind the campaign and also gained excellent reputation due to its huge contribution for Geo, National Geographic, the Sunday Times, the Smithsonian, Life and Paris Match.

He closely follows last year’s winter theme of the label. We will expect fur coats and bold scarves this season match with killer metallic and suede pumps.

Chanel Fall-Winter 2009-2010 Ad Campaign

Fashion houses for Fall/Winter 2009-10 Ad Campaigns are starting to surface and you can count Karl Lagerfeld’s concept for Chanel.

The Fall-Winter 2009/10 Ad Campaign for the label is something new and unexpected by most fashion critiques and Chanel fans.

Chanel Fall Winter 2009 2010 Ad Campaign

The campaign features two beautiful girls, Freja Beha Erichsen and Heidi Mountin in military-inspired clothes in black-and-white look as if they were taken long time ago. I had a strong feeling that this campaign were shots of the old film about war and love.

The campaign took place at the designer’s Vermont house for the second season in a row which feels quite like the Little House on the Prairie with a big wooden barn as backdrop.

I like the sepia look of the models in the campaign and also my attention was focused to the combination of military style with milkmaid hair. It shows the power of women to protect themselves from enemies but still fragile and feminine .

Here’s the peek shots of Karl Lagerfeld for the house of Chanel:
