And so we’re coming to the end of the year. Here is my 2010 highlights round-up!
1. Philo Fever
Yes, I am aware that this collection was out in 2009. But it was part of the spring 2010 collection. So, there. Phoebe Philo is a genius and we all know it. When I saw Zara’s window shop looked a lot like Celine collection and found a leather t-shirt on H&M, I knew that Phoebe Philo succeeded creating a ‘trend’ for the mass as well. Her collections in 2010 also proved that she’s no one trick pony. The spring 2011 collection is so different from the 2010, as it is injected with prints and more colors. I can’t wait what she’ll do next!
2. Best Lipstick Ever?
I have to say, my Pink Dusk Tom Ford lipstick is the best lipstick I’ve ever had. The packaging is elegant and the lipstick itself is so creamy! At £35, it may seem too much for a lipstick. But once you wear it, you know it’s worth it. It’s like, you’re giving yourself a little luxurious treat. On the lips.
3. Lanvin, not flowers!
Lanvin x H&M was my favorite designer/high street collaboration (so far). I queued for about 2 good hours and got what I wanted (except the purple lipstick!). I love the packaging as well. The dresses come with hangers and cute coat bag, and we also got canvas bag with corsage. I haven’t worn any of my Lanvin x H&M stuff yet, because it has to be on a very, very special occasion!
4. More Magazines!
Who says print media is dead? I love holding a brand new magazine. I love the smell of a new magazine. I love the flicking-through-pages moment. As intrigued as I am with getting an iPad, I still believe in the enjoyment of reading a fashion magazine. I know I’m not the only one who collects fashion magazines and uses them as decorations. The Gentlewoman and Indsutrie are my new favorites from 2010. The Gentlewoman is about girl power (no, not in a cheesy romcom way) whilst Industrie is the ‘backstage access’ to the fashion culture.
I just hope these two magazines will still be there in 2011!
And happy new year to you!
