In Stitches


Again, it’s all about the topstitching. I loved these looks on the runway; this was a fantastic collection with great denim pieces as well. And that skirt would be a nice addition to my wardrobe, it’s the perfect length.

  • ….ahhh…. not so keen on the topstitching around zipper of pants!

  • You’re right that skirt is crazy cool. It would be an addition that I would year for years!!
    Thanks for the inspo.

  • I’m crazy about this look. Miuccia was doing things like this back in the day. Hopefully I can get my hands on that skirt suit. The trousers and the V neck are on my lst as well.

  • Is it weird that I want the whole skirt suit? I’ve always been a topstitching fan, but kept it under wraps until now.

  • Love how the top stitching toughens up the frilly dress. That seems fresher to me than the separates, which just scream “70s porn” to me :-/

  • Enjoying your blog Preston! So much creativity and inspiration in the fashion world and you capture the essence for us all. However……I have to ask……am I the only one who is tired of looking at sulky pre/pubescent faces which surely won’t inspire anyone to buy the clothes being advertised? One may wonder at the psychology behind modern day marketing. We all like a dose of “the feel goods” and personally encountering a glowing visage on someone wearing lovely clothes works well on my psyche!

  • Susi no you are not the only one. As soon as I opened up the Prada ad my first thought was – so young. Is this age-group buying these clothes! Their parents must be rich! Seriously…to me it is off-putting.

    But I am wondering if seen in a magazine amongst all the pages it would not have such an impact. Maybe because they are shown as a one-off on the blog brings the photo into a starker reality…
