Michelle Lowe-Holder - Spring/Summer 2005
This would be my first time posting a women's collection, and I generally don't have as much interest in womenswear as I do in menswear. I don't know why, but I like this collection very much. It's not my style at all, not at all, but for the style that it is, I adore it. Enjoy.

Spring/Summer 2005

I feel this collection is very earthy, natural. To me, the word 'wiccan' comes to mind. Maybe it's the combination of the s, the setting, and the clothing

Makes me think of Diane Arbus photos.

I the black dress, especially the person that is wearing it..

(apparently now on tfs we can't say the words "girl" or "model" - I had to put quotation marks and underline so the program wouldn't notice.. )

Yeah,this is the best I've seen from Michelle in a while. I like how she used the safety-pins as an embellishment. And enjoy these shapes quite alot...and the ruched detail. But not as much laser work than she's before.

Love the clothes, but the way they're displayed totally puts me off. It looks like two 12 yr olds that have been forced to wear adult clothes and make up. :disgusting:

The make up they are wearing is extremely light. Plus, they seem to be more like 17 or so.

yes...and it also brings to mind the time my friend tried to put a halloween sweater on her cat...the cat had the same facial expression as these girls.

I am undecided about the clothes...but interesting to look at.

Seriously? That's messed up, I'd like Andy R. to fix that.

The clothing in itself doesn't seem particularly interesting, but the photography and simplicity overall, gives it a rather different, intriguing feel.

I like it in general...a few pieces...I'm not sure about some of the prints tho.

I have to agree with scandinavianchic - the models seem quite young and for that reason the photography reminded me of Sally Mann rather than Diane Arbus...but the first photo is pure Arbus.

(^luxmode, the expression...somthing of feeling exposed, yes, reminds me of s. mann too...the melancholic gaze of her daughter...don't you think?)

some of the pieces are strikingly beautiful, the black dresses, the white wing-like print dress seen from behind...
thank you for sharing!

i have to agree...the models are rather disturbing...the girls are way too young and do not look happy......



arturo...what in heck are you talking about?
why is everyone being so paranoid lately?!?!...

girl ....
model...
no problem....see?...
i find it weird to even suggest that on a site about fashion anyone would restrict the use of the word model...what a bizarre thought...
