Guess which designer?


Max Azria New York Fashion SS 2009

As mentioned in a previous post, I absolutely love the Greek Goddess look, and have grown accustomed to seeing it be done beautifully by designers such as Lanvin, Donna Karan, Hermes, and Bottega Veneta.  I was pleasantly surprised to see Max Azria's latest collection at the New York Fashion Week, which featured gorgeous fluid jerseys in a lovely soft palette, beautifully draped, yet effortless.  Sure hope I manage to get my hands on some of it!  Oh, and before I forget, look at that last pair of shoes!  Reminiscent of Martin Margiela's cuff-boot-sandal, I'm in love!

Some of my favourite recent 'Grecian Goddess' looks:

  1. Found you on the purse forum (love the pythons) - and yes, I love the greek look SO much. Course I can't afford all the designer stuff but Max Azaria is at least somewhat doable. I remember raiding H+M in 2005 while on a trip from Europe - guess there was a greek thing going on then too because though it was cheap, I totally still wear the pieces. Actually, I have to say the flowy, sexy romantic look is something I would love to have as my signature style.

    I'm working on it!

    PS love the blog!

  2. Thanks wanderlusting! I love it when H&M or Zara do a good 'take' on favourite looks (eg. the Chanel-esque tweed jackets Zara did so well a few years ago), I didn't get any, but my sisters did, and they're SO gorgeous! Even better that you still wear them 3 years on...(not that 3 years is a LONG time). Would love to see pics! ;)

  3. i never get tired of a grecian dress, i think its a classic
