Jans Laugesen showed his A/W 08 collection today at London Fashion Week. Laugesen's collections are currently sold at London's cutting edge Dover Street Market, and are destined to be featured in the next pop up at Earnest Sewn in New York. Laugesen has channeled a slim, masculine silhouette for his fall 08 collection. The aesthetic is not unlike Karl Lagerfeld's personal style where strong shoulder tailoring, leather gloves, and high necklines make for a Bladerunner meets Bullfighter style. Laugesen's collection is also align with the mood of London Fashion Week which has proven to be much more severe than that of New York. Frankly, if you're long and lean (and shy away from anything described with the words 'rosette' or 'bubble') this collection is your ticket to fall 08.
n. In fashion, the overall outline, or shape of a garment. Three basic silhouettes form the basis for all clothing and are considered long-run fashions. These cycle over a period of years; the bell, with outer form rounded to waistline; the straight, hangs from the shoulders; and the bustle back silhouette. A-line and V-shape are modifications of the straight silhouette.

I literally stopped everything I was just doing when I came across this Alice & Olivia Pailette Mini Dress, $300. It is absolutely one of the most adorable LBDs I have ever seen. I want to take it home with me so badly! It would be so fun at a black-tie wedding. What has made me fall in love? Why, the unique combo of the bubble skirt, large circle sequins and pockets of course!
