Fall 2011 RTW

The American Southwest continues to inspire – when I came across these remarkable images captured by Martin Karplus, 1950s Harvard Professor of Theoretical Chemistry and Biophysics (and, oh by the way, uber-talented photographer), I had to stop and take it in. Not only am I in love with the old Kodachromes, Kodak’s trademark brandname for color reversal film, I am amazed at Karplus’ poignent depiction of this culturally rich wildland – a frontier to American bliss.

Take a cue from the Fall 2011 Proenza Schouler collection when planning your winter wardrobe. A highly imaginative reinterpretation of textile and print; place yourself in primal, yet modern navajo fabrics & recreate Karplus’ technicolor sights. A primer for more to come (since I’m in love with this a/w trend!).

Rodarte polaroids, Fall 2011 (Models: Karlie Kloss, Lindsey Wixson, Madiysn Ritland)

****

I’m in so much love with the polaroids taken at the fitting for the Rodarte Fall 2011/RTW collection. Kate and Laura Mulleavy channeled their inner pioneer, with this striking representation of 19th c. and 21st c. design. An overwhelmingly beautiful collection that mixes leather and pony-skin with ruby red colorings, Rodarte’s polaroids do an excellent job of capturing the hauntingly beautiful, yet still melancholy feeling that encapsulates this bluegrass portrait. For more inspiring photos and to view the Spring 2012 collection pop over to Rodarte now!*
