Rachel Antonoff: FW12 Presentation

So I'm attending a few shows and presentations this FW12 fashion week...  But it if it is one presentation I look forward to attending, it is always most definitely Rachel Antonoff. I always love her girly/vintage-y silhouettes with modern details (like her high waisted crepe silk shorts with heart shaped pockets)!  Rachel places her models against a dark mysterious set from her own imagination, always so creatively designed and executed. Her presentations are always a fun experience!

This season was by far one of my favorites!  Playful and fun, full of peter pan collars and that distinct 50's flair, I was particularly drawn to the prints (the cool mod beige and pink patterned one was my favorite), colors, and fabrics she used! It was a great mixture of dresses and separates, and I found myself wanting something from nearly every look. Her collaboration with Bass for this collection was also one of my favorites!

The setting was a moonlit lake... at midnight perhaps? Placed against the silhouette of a forest, a full moon hung overhead, as the models stood on a dock. Alia Shawkat sung a few jazz tunes, which added to the eerie atmosphere. 

My favorite shoes from the Bass x Rachel Antonoff Collaboration!

Inspiration: Time-Life - This Fabulous Century

While hunting for vinyl at my local Housing Works, I came across a series of books published by Time-Life. 

The cover was what really caught my attention. The particular book they had was on the 1960's, which I bought. 

Doing a little poking around on the internet, it appears that Time-Life published these books as a pictorial survey of each century, covering everything from pop culture to current events. They're pretty interesting and fun to flip through! I've tried to do research, and it appears that there are only six editions, the first starting at 1900-1910.
