Kiddy Smile the night before.

Due to the previous evening's late night festivities I over slept and missed the Margiela show. The first show I made it to was Bernhard Wilhelm. It was somehow overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time. Not to worry - I was pleasantly surprised by Korean fashion house Wooyoungmi's collection. I'm seeing a lot of really classic menswear with a twist. The collection had really nice coats and trousers. I remember talking with a friend a few years ago about how the proportions of trousers would change a lot over the next few years and we've really seen that throughout this season. Pants have gotten baggier and blousier all over - a silhouette that would have seemed inappropriate 5 years ago.

Here are some backstage snaps from the Wooyoungmi show:

Damir Doma is fast on his way to becoming one of fashions most important designers. This collection was absolutely stunning. The croatian born designer's autumn winter collection featured continental nomadic looks with african and asian influences as well as sharp  tailoring. The fabrics looked rich and comfortable. This was one of the best thought out collections I've seen all week and I really really loved it. I believe several of these pieces will be must have's next season. I look forward to more great things from Damir in the future. Here are some of my favorite looks:
