Grey Garden


Thanks to Cotton Candy's Whimsical Delights Blog - I have discovered the fabulous Tokyo Spring Fashion Week. Among its unique designers, I discovered a new favorite : Mayumi Sasaki for Lyrics M. The runway was all covered in moss and the girls looked like they were dressed to have a picnic in the English countryside. I loved the straw hats, faded colors, delicate fabrics and unique shapes. The collection also reminded me a LOT Marie Antoinette when she had built her village and spent her time frolicking around! Next spring, I'm thinking vintage straw hats, lace, khaki, and hippie-ish/English countryside touches.




Rag & Bone even caught onto the trend:


Also I read about this play in Teen Vogue and the poster captured my attention and reminds me of this look I'm talking about:

The fashions in the original Grey Gardens movie are (seemingly) an inspiration for today's styles... especially tights and scarves. I love the Marie screencaps. Reminds me of how freakin' gorgeous that film was...
