FASHION WEEK FAVES – #THROWBACKTHURSDAY – MARTINE SITBON

martine-sitbon-runway-fashion-show-best

If I had to describe Martine Sitbon’s designs, it would sound like she’s all over the place: lots of pleating, layering, distressed elements, mix-and-matching of disparate fabrics… But in a way, that’s what made her designs original and beautiful and it became her signature style. I loved her designs even though the eclectic mix of fabrics was at times a little too exaggerated in my opinion – fall 2003 and 2004 was one of those times. But then again, in those days, I was a little too obsessed with the whole distressed and deconstructed look so it didn’t “bother” me that much.

I also remember some collections where her designs were flirty, romantic and dreamy with flowy sheer fabrics like tulle and satin, and details like intricate embroideries, ruffles, ribbons and a little dash of glitter. All in a gorgeous palette of soft blush, cream, nude and black. I am very much obsessed with sexy sheer cocktail dresses and Martine Sitbon nailed it in those days. In fact, I would totally wear her dresses from fall 2001, spring 2002 (*drool*) and spring 2003 today!

Sooo… I took a little trip down memory lane and gathered my favourite looks from her namesake brand (she also designed for Chloé for a while). Brace yourselves… there’s about 50 photos but it’s worth the endless scroll :)
