Here are a few photos of the Fall Winter 2010 Moon River collection from Family Affairs. I'm really loving these fashion shows that don't look like fashion shows, set up like fake stage plays or dioramas. Here is a little information from the designers about the collection...
The Fall Winter 10 collection is darkly romantic and a little mystical with a muted color palette; inspired by the snow covered valleys and rich velvet details seen in Roman Polanski's 1967 film Fearless Vampire Killers.
The heroine of Moon River is holed up in a mountain house made of wood - simple and honest, in a pristinely beautiful setting with snow and mountains all around. Sitting at the kitchen table with a fire going, tea and cake and a fat cat by her side, reflecting on the ocean voyages she's taken and enjoying the peace and beauty of being in nature.
I've never seen Fearless Vampire Killers but since I sort of nerd out about anything vampire related I have a sneaking suspicion I would like it even though it looks sort of campy and silly. At least there are pretty costumes and Sharon Tate certainly isn't hard to look at. I definitely see the inspiration showing through in the collection; the orange velvety dress and the over all dark tones. I think my favorite piece is the mustard colored coat in the behinds the scenes shot. I've been looking for a coat in that color for ages. It's still so cold around here it seems perfectly apt to be coveting a winter coat even though all I can really do is think about spring.
