I have sold my soul to Plurk. I love plurk. Any post over 140 characters is too long. lol So after a nice break from blogging I’m back. So the whole art gallery thing didn’t work out. It would have taken a bunch of my time and I didn’t want to run another business, we all know how that goes. Anyway Adia has been demanding some air time for fashion so she is going start with this post!

Fashion (Insert Witty Noun) #1 LeLutka Spring 09 Collection

Let’s face it either you love the brand or you can’t stand the brand. Personally I love it. And with this collection I LOVE LeLutka. So lets break down the collection shall we.

Color Pallet: Soft and feminine. Pinks, sages, pale blues, and greens dominate the collection, very spring, very crisp. Personally I like strong colors so I wasn’t feeling the colors too much so my choices where the dark blues, olives, browns, and blacks.

Silhouettes: This season Minnu and Thora went with soft draping instead of the geometric trends of RL Spring 09. The sculpting on each piece was impeccable, although I had an issue with fit, even though I’m on the thin side of the av. Notable pieces are the Olimpia pants, Satine pants, Simone dress, Olympia sweater and the Shiri top

Fabrics: Breathable fabrics were key, cotton, chiffon, etc. Only the formal pieces was where the fabric was heavy.

Issues: Fit!!!!!!! It bugs me to no end when my smallish avatar has to enlarge stuff because it is too small! I think they should have put a resize script in the clothes so that way it is easy to do also. Grr. lol
My other beef with this collection was a lot of basics, t-shirts, tanks, jeans, sweater dresses, etc. I don’t shop at LeLutka for basics or mall clothes. I want COUTURE, like Alexander McQueen & company!!! I really liked their first collection because it was unique, out there, mind you not as good quality, but none the less different. I don’t mind paying more for an outrageous outfit. While the silhouettes weren’t, say, average, they weren’t exactly different and out of the box. In fact now that I think about it, the Dea shirt was in The Sims: Open for Business. Now I understand that designers do borrow looks from each other, but still it wasn’t innovative and that is what I’m looking for.
I have saved the biggest issue for last. FUG! There is an hyper busy floral print dress that I swear looks like something my grandmother would have worn. GAG! I will post a picture of it when I go home, but man it is UGLY! While in the same fabric there is a dress in a different cut that looks young and fresh.

Edit: Pictures are here!

Got to go! Bye
