Fashion week is what's happening while you're busy making other plans

I always thought it was extremely unfair how the start of the semester always collides with the spring/summer fashion weeks. Needless to say, I've been working and studying my butt off this semester but thefashionspot and style have been my favorite procrastination activities. Especially these days where the fashion circus has moved on to Paris, I have a hard time focusing on studies, when I know there are such beautiful collections to discover instead. And yesterday I was simply unable to get my hands down after seeing Ann Demeulemeester's spring collection. Usually her aesthetic is a bit too edgy and masculine for my personal liking but this collection is exactly what I want to wear next spring. It almost reminded me of some past Dries collections as well. The draping and the layers.. The crystal embellishments.. So amazinly pretty. This is definitely my favorite collection so far!

yeah! this season's ann d was a lot easier to handle, the dresses are so voluminous but light at the same time...so beautiful

yes, light is a great way to describe it! her collections can be very sinister and hard to digest.. but this will be much easier to apply in everyday life. to me at least :)

I loved her new collection as well! But I have to admit, I've always been a fan of her work, too edgy or not ;)

How can you even think about spring right now in this horrible, horrible cold?!?

Also - I put up a photo of that dress you wanted to see.

I love this collection - it's like a cross between ballerinas and ancient Greeks :)

haha, fashion and education come together to conspire against us! that is a fantastic collection though. it's kind of delicate but also quite edgy at the same time.

I have had dreams about that white dress... so utterly delicate but with a sharpness that you can't pinpoint..utterly utterly beautiful.
