The thing is, Anne-Sofie Back's 'Boo' A/W 09 Collection isn't the normal addiction for me. It's usually either some combination of grunge, studded, spiky, kick-ass leathery goodness or velvety, silky, lacy, renaissance-esque, rich hued classic beauty. (What a contrast!) No, Anne-Sofie's collection isn't leathery or velvety. To the unfashionable eye it is, rather, the likes of a bunch of cloth ripped to smithereens by kitchen shears. To me, however, the collection is pure seduction.
I'm not sure how she manages to make something so destroyed look so fantastic, but this designer pulls it off. Surely if anyone else tried to do it, it would look like a bunch of old dish rags headed straight for the dumpster. I suppose it's just as the saying goes: one man's trash is another man's treasure. (Or, in this case, woman's.)
And, to all of your lovely souls: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and a very happy holiday to you all. Christmahanakwanzika? Whatever the case may be, I thank you all for making this year one of my very best. If it weren't for this blog and all of the wonderful people who read it, I would be utterly and completely lost. Thank you.
