Retro Looks In The Modern World: Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010

I'm a big fan of Sonia Rykiel and her Spring 2010 RTW collection shown earlier this month did not disappoint. Always with a retro sensibility, Sonia showed a mix bag this season with influences from the 30's, 40's, 70's disco, 70's doing 40's, and 80's for a good time feel (note the smiling models!). In case that's confusing, let's just have a look. Here are some of my favorites, for the complete collection take a look at

Retro Looks In The Modern World: Dior S/S 2010

I nearly died when I saw the Christian Dior Spring 2010 RTW collection shown in Paris earlier this month. Inspired by my favorite loves... film noir, lingerie, and femme fatales... you can see why! Galliano was specifically inspired by Lauren Bacall (image above) and it showed on the runway where the models wore Bacall hair and a serious face. Here are some of my favorite looks from the collection.
