‘Swonderful. ‘Smarvelous. Geren Ford’s fall 2010 collection channels a bygone era in the fluttery dresses and smart-yet-dramatic Flash Gordon-esque jackets. And, maybe I’ve got too much of her on the brain, but don’t the featured looks all seem too Alexa Chung-inspired to you? If you’re an AC follower, then you know she likes the vintage looks.
Every dress piece is cut with a looser fit in mind, somewhat reminiscent of how a Flapper should be rockin’ it. It’s less body-con, but still flattering for all the young things who want to kick up a heel.
As for the drop-crotchy harem pants, all it needs is for a model to rock a diva turban. Norma Desmond, are you ready for your close-up? The ghosts of Jean Harlow, Kate Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich are trapped in this collection, and I’d feel honored to catwalk in their shoes! I can’t decide whether the looks are just old Hollywood prosperity bubble or pre-Dust Bowl.
And for the denim looks, nothing too new here, but nonetheless tasteful and impeccably stylish. I’m really digging on the riding-pant style patches in the photo at left.
