Model Of The Season - Raquel Zimmermann
We all know who Raquel Zimmermann, and no way does she need an introduction, but this model did her first cover of Vogue in 2000 for Vogue Italia and has been modeling for over 10 years, making her quite the veteran in the modeling world. But that has not stopped designers booking miss Zimmermann for their Fall 2011 Campaigns. Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo and Lanvin are a handful of Campaigns which this brazilian beauty has featured in for the Fall. She is such a striking model with very powerful features, and she manages to ‘work’ the camera like no other. I really hope that Raquel’s career continues to flourish in the future, and she will continue booking campaigns next year like they are going out of fashion.
Alexander McQueen Resort 2012. This was another great collection for the Resort season. My favourite part of the collection was definately the first half, which was full of exquisite tailoring with utilitarian and military aspects very prominent. There was also some stunning shapes in the collection, and the colour palette in the first half was very organic which was rather interesting. In my personal opinion, i feel as if the second half was no where near as strong. Usually, i am such a fan of romance and softness in a collection, but this time i felt as if there was a bit of repetition with previous McQueen collections designed by Burton. Resort 2011 was immense and in comparison…i dont think this collection as a whole was as strong. I think we want something new, rather than gold detailing on complex, voluminous bottoms. The daywear side of this collection was superb though….very good.
