Betsey Johnson has never really been my cup of tea, though I did admire her insistence on youthfulness and fun. I mean, really -- can you call a lady who does cartwheels and splits at the end of her shows uptight? I definitely enjoyed this collection. Even though it was a mishmash of styles, I think all of the patterns and silhouettes showed scream "Betsey". Favorites of mine: The studded bustier, the half colored-in florals, the sheer trench, and all the ruffles and lace!
Another designer who's never really been my cup of tea. This time around, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Carolina Herrera plus a shot of graphic direction are a match made in heaven. I particularly liked all the uses for the short stripes shown. Vertical patterns, blocks of sheer/opaque, the belts, as piping... it showed up nearly everywhere, and I thoroughly approve.
Christian Cota is a perennial favorite here at Frock Yeah. I don't really have much to say that I haven't said about Cota before, but again: I love the silhouettes, the color palette, the presentation. The only thing I didn't really like this time around is the shoes.
