Loving Lace

Of course Prada did lace in a big way, so we all know that we'll be seeing a lot more of this fine fabric in the upcoming season, but the show that I really loved in February? Emma Cook's.

I think one of the most difficult thing to do in designing is to find a new way of presenting something familiar. And that's what Emma Cook does so well here. Lace connotes so many things: romanticism, fragility, femininity. And it's not that the clothes don't emote all of the above, but they do it in such an edgy, urban, rockabilly way.

If you can't afford her rtw, Emma's been designing capsule collections in Topshop, one of my all time favorite retailers. Another reason to count down the days until the store finally opens up its flagship here in the city.
