new york fashion week is underway. marc jacobs has already shown (over 60 outfits, straight out of the 80s, for which we would rather pay $5 at a thrift store than $5000. anyway) as have alexander wang, boy by band of outsiders, threeasfour, diane von furstenburg, victoria beckham (hm), peter som, rag & bone, etc, etc. style.com has already pointed to “nerd glasses” as a “micro trend”, because apparently they didn’t know. calls for “a new sobriety” and “tasteful restraint” have resulted in yet more pairs of high-waisted genie pants, dressed up as a new idea. there seems to be a fishy idea floating around that recession fashion = already done fashion. but uh lest we sound cynical and overly-critical, which i promise we are not, i mean to be completely honest i still haven’t stopped wearing the tutu silhouette miu miu showed two years ago, and haven’t yet begun to buy slouchy pants and oversize blazers, we really do enjoy a lot of the clothes we’ve seen so far it’s just that nothing feels new anymore, anyway, here are some of our very very early favorite things.

oh hello there

we at festo are super into all things lively and cultural

something lively and cultural on our minds at the moment is fashion week, duh, and as we are ferociously tearing through photos of (sheer sheer sheer brights pastels long blazers ohmygod is it the 90s again and haven’t people been rolling up their mom jeans for a while now?) gorgeous clothing, we thought it appropriate to share some of our thoughts. don’t you worry more will soon follow.

charles anastase, wheeere have you been since spring/summer 2005? with the caveat that we melt for big ugly hip old man glasses, and also any collection that merits a mention of lula, we thought his mellow spring-y colors & fabrics (look number one, the little white dress in eyelet lace, awww) combined with snazzy puffy silhouettes, make it easy to picture what one would want to wear while following a herd of well-dressed sheep around a flowery meadow. also of note: that straw hat that was all over marc jacobs, puffy tutu shapes a la miu miu last spring, onesies like whoa (reminded us of stella mccartney’s pajama party), layers layers layers, prominent socks and ankles (a trend we first noticed in stockholm last year), and softness punctuated with leather and other tough stuff. charles, we like you.

oh and luella, holy crap luella, what pretty perfect outfits. asymmetry without being icky, really successful blending of bright colors without looking too much like the klaxons used to (put that neon green away, and grab some tangerine instead, and then throw on some purple, and then, kapow), hair bows!!! we totally knew the 50s were on the upswing (another stockholm-related epiphany), coco chanel esque layered pearls, one shouldered dresses, still floral prints of the liberty-inspired variety, and teased hair all over the place. oh we are fans. such enormous fans.

and another thing, we were reading the latest issue of tokion yesterday, and learned about a techno festival in new york that features a deaf disco, that plays music with the bass turned up so that deaf festival goers can feel the vibrations and dance about with all of their hearing friends. pretty bitchin.

come back soon. read more. we’ll bake you a pie.
