NYFW Diaries: Graeme Armour F/W 2010

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Since I couldn't be at London Fashion Week, I thought I would share some pictures from one of London's brightest new talents, Glaswegian womenswear designer, Graeme Armour, who recently showed his F/W 2010 collection in New York at Milk Studios. I loved the New York debut of this designer, who showed a mix of pieces in mostly black, with touches of white and silver with leather, mesh and metal aplenty. I wish I had a good photograph of these amazing silver fringe leather pants from the collection. Just look at the silver color of the leather bomber below and try to picture it with crazy fringe in pant form... Hot, right? Also noteworthy from this collection: cropped legging lengths and delicate crochet treatments to leather (a feminine alternative to the bold shouldered leather tops from the designer).









People are calling Armour the "next Christopher Kane," which makes no sense to me, since their aesthetic is completely different. They may both hail from Scotland, but I don't see the connection. What do you think?

I agree about the silver scalloped fringe leather pants! They were amazing. People were also cooing about the pieced black crystal dress - I think it's one of those that would have been more impressive to me to touch. It recalled pieces of broken glass somehow sewn together again!

I love the ruffles and shears. Even that offset white blouse. The only one I don't care for is the first one of strips. It's an old fashioned thing of feeling like I'm not getting my money's worth on an item. Like half of it is missing.

The cutouts are certainly inspiring me to work out more. Ah ha. The piece that intrigues me the most is the white top. So simple, yet so interesting!

I can understand the Kane reference a little bit -- he did a lot of leather and pleating back in Fall '07. But, Graeme is much more elegant -- not to mention WEARABLE. Great pix!! :-)
