While browsing NYtimes.com style section, I came across an article about fashion photography....right then and there I was introduced to the fantastic and talented photographer, Patrick Demarchelier I felt compelled to share some of his work. From campaigns of the likes of Ralph Lauren to Loreal, to French Vogue, Vogue India to Vantiy Fair, Demarchelier's resume is well stoked....Here are a few of my favorite images from his site....Enjoy!!!

The sister combo of Kate and Laura Mulleavy really sparked my interest with their latest collection for Rodarte…self described as nerds but I have to disagree as this collection was far from ‘nerdy’. The futuristic vibe of the Spring 09 collection was inspired by Laura’s somewhat radical point of view that humans’ travel through space helped art bloom on earth and that we all saw the world from a different perspective following space travel. Whatever it was that inspired them, aliens sending the duo secret messages to their own point of view, it was quite cool and well done. The transition of the color palette from nude to color blocks to rocker black to organic watercolor printed fabrics was executed beautifully. I think the main characteristic of this collection that was really great was that it had a tough girl feel to the clothing which is quite controversial and different in comparison to the majority of other spring collections. The interesting details of the wide open weaved fishnets, chunky knits twisted with chains to the addition of leather were attributes that contributed to the interesting appeal of this collection. What do you like for spring? Frilly and feminine or something a bit more urban?
Ah Olivier Theyskens….his ethereal collection for the house of Nina Ricci really blew my mind. It is quite possible that it was the 18th century undertone evoked by the majority of the collection that called to me. From the shape of many dresses of varying length of hem, to the tailcoats and the dusty color palette I was smitten with the strong dose of femininity emanating from the clothing….

I’ve been a fan of Christian Siriano from day one and couldn't’t have been more stoked that he won last season on Project Runway (Sidebar: if only this season’s designers were as talented and creative this season would actually be fun to watch). Here are a few of his looks from his spring collection. The color palette is pretty slick and I'm definitely digging the combination of light grey and lime green....very hip. I feel that ruffle frocks and outrageous hats are going to become a signature look of his….can’t wait to see where his talent and crazy ideas will take him!
