Homework Help

caitlin

Caitlin wrote to me with a class assignment that was giving her a bit of trouble. I think if we all put our heads together we can come up with some examples to help her out... any suggestions?

Marc Jacobs Spring 2009. Fitted waist detail, collared blouses, checkered patterns, strong shoulders. A really popular collection.
XOXO

I agree about the Marc Jacobs. What about Balmain with the strong shoulders and military detailing on the jacket?

sarah louise said...

My first instinct was Nina Ricci.

Didn't Alexander Wang just do a show with swallow-tail jackets? Here's a video (a link to Preen, too).

Nina Ricci spring 2009 RTW! It has lots and lots of gigot sleeves. (I did a giant, 126 page PDF last year that defines fashion terms and shows 3 contemporary examples for my own history of fashion class.)

Caitlin said...

wow! thanks everyone. I have another week to work on this, so if there's anymore suggestions I'd love to hear them.

And thanks for posting this!

What about the shoulders.. you know, the whole "strong shoulders" trend going on now, and with shoulder pads in the 80s?

Alicia said...

this latest louis vuitton show - there's one dress that looks like it has a bodice

Current YSL ads for Spring/Summer 2010...you can totally see the influence in the shoulders etc.

MusaBenedetta said...

John Galliano for Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2010 (can be seen at style.com), though the silhouette there is a tad more Edwardian than Victorian. However, I consider him to be a designer highly influenced by both Victorian and Edwardian fashion.

Dior's 2010 Fall RTW for shizzle. Have fun on your project!

I agree about the detail on the strong shoulders. Those that are with pads.

-Christian Lacroix (even look at his perfume, Absynthe inspired by the drink of poets and artists in 19th century Paris)
-Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2003; models wore 19th century hats; often cites this century in other collections as well
-Christian Dior Spring 2010
-Also, totally agree with those who mentioned Vivienne Westwood.

Deborah said...

check out karen walker spring/summer 2010

ana b. said...

Definitely Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 in his Mary Poppins phase. And even know - any designer doing the fitted waist, blousy top/strong shoulder silhouette.

I immediately thought of John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood. These two always borrow from the past in their collections. I found this article about bustles http://www.morbidoutlook.com/fashion/historical/2003_08_bustle.html which mentions both of those designers. The corset is another 19th century item that pops up a lot in modern designs.

Good Luck with your project!

Meaghan Kelly said...

oooo that dress makes me think of marc jacobs spring 2009 right away!!! puffy shoulders and tiny waistlines and sort of heavier fabrics.
that'd be my suggestion!

hello birdy said...

I would 100% agree with Vivienne Westwood!

reckless daughter said...

yes, westwood for sure but I'd say Chanel as well.

Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander Mcqueen (RIP, John Galliano

dolce and gabanna fall 2009 would work perfectly

Olivier Theyskens!!! He did a futuristic Victorian collection with giant rubber skirts, corsets and bustles - divine!
