From Lower East [Si]beria, with love @ Jeremy Laing Fall 2010

Monday, March 1, 2010
I love presentations during fashion week. They are so much more intimate and tangible compared to runway. The latter only allows you a few fleeting moments with the piece and then again during the finale. With a presentation, you can spend time going over the details and how the collection either comes together or falls apart. Jeremy Laing's Fall 2010 Presentation for women was my clear favorite. And excuse me as I get my Rachel Zoe on for a moment here and openly say that I "die[d]" for every single piece. His collection was absolute "perfection" and I would love to "shut it down" during Fashion Night Out this September in one of his leather jackets. 

Prepare to eat your heart out Rick Owens because you are so 2009. 

And though I am not a supporter of fur, I can appreciate the pieces despite my personal views. The collection presented tundra friendly looks with a grungy lower east side flare. Military jackets over-top asymmetrical tops, harem trouser pants, peasant dresses, rich oceanic and earth tones in the prints and leathers, anklebootsankleboots ankle-boots, lots of layering and a generous serving of fur. For Fall 2010, Laing wants to keep you warm but looking absolutely incredible at the same time. I will be the first one to admit, it was difficult to break the pea coat--wrap scarf--leather riding boots cycle during the cold months. Now, I have options (excluding the fur) that include layering a non-traditional leather with seemingly kitschy wovens, loose skinny pants as opposed to denim and suede ankle boots so that my calves can breathe. 

Side: and how stunningly exquisite are the models? Whoever did the casting for this show was spot-on with the aesthetic. They were intriguingly unassuming; the more I looked at them, the further drawn in I became.

This was fucking brilliant! I love coming here for your reviews Queen. Your perspective is most refreshing (as well as your LACK of self-indulgence). Hear Hear for the Black Queen!

*No offense to being referred to as "black" I just thought that would be more appropriate than the "red" queen from the story.

Dude. This...this is just amazing. The not-so-in-your-face color palette, the TEXTURES, the draping, the shapes. Holy shit. Wow. Wow.

I am not a fash-week kind of girl, but this gets me excited about clothing. Hot damn. Great recap.
