Wish List / Clements Ribeiro AW 09/10

I am slowly getting into Fashion Week mode, looking at the shows schedule but also coveting like a mad woman a lot of pieces from the AW Lookbooks! I find it difficult to get enthusiastic about Summer collections when Winter is coming first. I can’t look that far into the future. I know I will be delighted to see all the beautiful pieces on show during LFW, but nothing excites me more than the “current” season’s looks.

One of the highlights of this Fashion Week for me is the return of Clements Ribeiro, celebrating 25 years of LFW. I just browsed through their AW 09-10 look book and I can tell you three things: OH EMM GEE.

I like looking at a collection and thinking “I’d totally rock that”. It is the only reason why I am interested in Fashion: I want to see things I can wear. Of course, I appreciate avant-garde designs, but I can’t really relate to them style wise.

This is the first ready-to-wear collection by Clements Ribeiro since Spring 2006 and I can’t wait to see what they will have on show for SS 10.

“When developing the collection we thought of strong individual pieces, using innovative craft that sat outside of trends. We believe there is a strong demand out there for craftsmanship and quality products which are unique, desirable and that have timeless appeal” says Ribeiro.


What do you think? Which shows are getting you excited this season?
