strange times, strange dreams

Armani Prive Spring 2010 Collection
Photos via

I'm oddly drawn to the first image of the orb dress. The matirial is so intriguing, the way it seems to hover and float reminds me almost of an egg white...that sort of movement and flow. The collection was said to be inspired by the moon, which I find interesting, because it reminded me slightly of McQueen's Spring 2010 collection, which was inspired by a water theme. I'm sensing a kind of fusion between nature and "the future" in fashion recently, almost as though it is reflecting the world's current question of nature's place in our very technology driven society. It's as though some designers were trying to bring us back to those roots (haha, roots, like trees, like nature...sorry, I love bad puns), but in a new, experimental, 80's perception of the future sort of way. All very interesting though, I like it.
