The transitional in between


I seem to always like
anything
transitional

I think
the awkward
freshness
appeals to me

When I'm thinking of clothing

Seasonally
I prefer
spring
and fall

Historically
I love
Regency 1810-1820

Now

I prefer Marc Jacobs' Resort line
to the summer collection of 2009
What a surprise!!
its something transitional

I think this designer's collection
is a great example
of more to come
in this century/decade
soft and hard silhouette/textures
put together unexpectedly
and large scale
complicated techniques
done with printed textiles

What a fantastic, inspiration post. I especially like all the elaborate up-dos in the 1800s.

I love how detailed this clothing is. I'm glad there are still people out there keeping it alive!

Happy New Year!
