One major trend was SEQUINS. God knows why. They do no one any favors. For some reason, everyone wanted to either look like they themselves were a giant disco ball or that they were at least carrying one. To the right is the Louis Vuitton AW 2010 bag that best illustrates this--Marc Jacobs, for whatever reason, took a perfectly great exotic skinned bag and coated the main part of it with black sequins. Hmmmm. Is it just me, or is this bag going to be quickly pawned off on little nieces or sold on ebay when people come to their senses?
See, what makes me dislike sequins so much is not only the fact that they look cheap and shiny. Its that they don't last. They fall off. They break. It's totally defeats the purpose of investing in some wonderful piece of fashion. Bah humbug!!
2010 wasn't so bad. There was a lot of new talent on the scene, it felt like more so than in previous years. The kind of innovation that they bring is fun and great for fashion! Luckily, there were minimal amounts of things that I saw that were outright shameful (other than JEGGINGS. I don't count those as clothes) and lets hope that they new year brings many more fun, beautiful and elegant things!
