Vogue Fall Preview

It's up. What do we think? I'm seeing some good and some bad.

I think I might have to look a little longer to discover "some good" for myself.

My first impression:
"Damn! Are we back into the 'Deeply Unwearable Silhouettes' phase again?

So many friggin' awkward squares.

The socks might have merit, tho....

I see a LOT of bad, but some of the socks are gorgeous! There are a few sweaters/cardis with merit, and some could be tweaked into a more flattering or wearable state by a clever knitter.

urgh!!! I'm not loving it! In fact, I'm a little insulted that they're saying it's British inspired. Just because they use the union jack on a poncho doesn't do the UK any justice.

My British pride might be getting in the way of my judgement though.

Mostly ~meh~ with a couple of OMG-What-Was-She-Thinking? thrown in. IOW -- typical Vogue.

Not a fan of the big, oversized, boxy sweater. I did the 1980s in the 80s and that was enough.

It's retro in an ugly way. And, to me, the 80's aren't a distant enough memory to want to revisit.
