It would be hard-pressed for Jun Takahashi produce anything less than thrilling. I especially loved the presentation of Undercover’s fall/winter ’09 collection- the pieces of shattered mirror on the ground are a great mystical touch, without being obvious and melodramatic, in the way that mirrors are often conceptually presented.

It reminded me of Emma Cook’s fall 2006 collection, which incorporated plenty of mirrored appliques.

My own prom dress came from this collection. The amount of attention paid to detail is one of the reasons why I love Emma Cook so very much.

    I am loving the broken glass, so much more behind than the obvious larger pieces on the bottom.

    I wonder if the current economic downfall will make designers resort to looking like they raided home depot vs. mood fabrics.
