Show me your bones




www.00s-s.com, rodarte.net

There may be a slight slowdown in the frequency of posts as I struggle through a few projects and start to prepare for finals. But so far, I'm keeping good pace so maybe this semester I won't be as overwhelmed as before? Here's hoping.

One of my favourite spring runway trends was the the exoskeleton look, as exemplified by Hisui and Rodarte above. The Hisui website annoyingly went down just as I was about to browse further today in search for more complementary images. Anyways, I am eagerly anticipating seeing photos of designer Hiroko Ito's fall collection for Hisui this Tokyo fashion week (now!). I might chalk up Rodarte's rib-cage tops to my summer diy list as the general shape doesn't look too difficult to duplicate. I can't wait to get finals over with this April so I can spend some time learning how to better use a sewing machine, since Camille's recent diy forays have left me longing for some creative time.

Sarcastic? Are you referring to the fashion industry's notorious obsession with "bones"? I didn't want to open that can of worms yet with this post. I'd much rather look at these pretty bone-inspired dresses than the real thing...

they manage to take something slightly morbid topic and make it dreamy and enchanting. that is called talent.

Indigo: You worded it so well. That's exactly what I was thinking when I found these photos on the Rodarte website.

Hm I think the Rodarte one could be easily DIY'd. I've contemplated it myself but my DIY list is soo long already. X|

The "bones" drape so well on the models. I'm afraid they wouldn't work quite so well on me, but I love looking at them.

Oh my gosh I am obsessed. I love the nude colour and the millions of different textures. So wonderful.
