    The collection is gorgeous! I love the Elizabethan influence – slides 2 and 32 are my favorite

    Always the best part of every season of collections is coming here to look at Meadham Kirchhoff up close (apart from the MK shows themselves!).

    The details are of course exquisite, and the reference points seem quite a bit more wide-ranging this season…? Their clothes really do breach that boundary between ready-to-wear and couture.

    There are no words to describe something that involves my favorite designer of all time and Rookie, so I’ll just say asdfghjklasjdfghjkl!@#$%^&* Wow. I loved this.

    I actually reviewed this collection for my blog. I liked some of it, not so much other pieces:
    Your pics for this were so in depth, also, Eleanor!

  • LuxOrBust October 8th, 2013 5:43 PM

    The caption for slide 16 explains exactly the frustrations I feel on fashion these days, said so eloquently. Spot on. I really love Meadham Kirchoff and am so thankful Rookie keeps returning to photograph the collections! I feel so inspired!

  • flocha October 9th, 2013 10:25 AM

    Oh my these are wonderful

  • Mary the freak October 9th, 2013 11:15 AM

    Although I really miss the rainbow colors that Meadham Kirchhoff clothes used to have, I like that collection. But it’s so different that Meadham Kirchhoff used to be!
    Don’t mean to be mean. IT looks awesome, seriously! *-*

  • Aithy Palfreyman October 9th, 2013 12:19 PM

    these are beautiful! this could NOT have come at a better time, too, since I’ve just been put in charge of costume design for an upcoming school production of the Tempest and I’ve decided to use Bowie as my inspiration for Ariel :)

  • Megretson October 9th, 2013 10:02 PM

    I don’t mean to be a downer but seriously not a single POC? Not a single person even close to possessing melanin? I know it’s going for a Victorian vibe but at the same time it feels ridiculous.
