The transitional in between

Image
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




WWI 1910-1920





1936-1940



1956-1960


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 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Chicken feathers

The chicken shirt
ruffled hat
lace shoes
are all into play

Hat which completely leaves me speechless
