Exoticism F/W 08.09
I've noticed that despite the harsh reality and urban utilitarianism that's been the dominant theme for fall, some designers are really embracing a spirit of escapism by looking Eastward for inspiration. Russia, China, Japan, India, Mongolia and even a touch of South America can be seen so far, and if the pseudo Turbans, spicy colors and embellishments are anything to go by, the Galliano show will add a touch of the Middle East to this trend.

From folding paper screens, rich carpets and exotic birds to embroideries lifted from a palace, it's definitely a more is more aesthetic.


Alexander McQueen



Balenciaga

Mm, I hope Exoticism is in, it would be nice to see the sort of explorer, holiday-goer type of Spring/Summer de Donna Karan et Hermes turn into the natives

A bit of a Middle Eastern aesthetic spotted at Hermes. The Persian carpet on the catwalk definitely helps!

^ I was actually waiting to pick up on a trend that you hadn't noticed Chrissy. You've been on a roll. :p

And when I saw the Hermes thread, I knew it had to be in here. I'm loving that third look, the fringe trimmed silk tunic over trousers.
