Par Example, the Barbie show gave me shudders as i pictured a frivolous affair laden with pink and small fluffy poodles. When infact, it actually looked like alot of fun, and some of the clothing was far more wearable, far more exciting and dare i say far more fashionable than i had imagined.
A second collection that has caught my usually unforgiving fashion eye is Victoria Beckham. When i read the description for the collection (timeless, things women will want to wear etc etc) it all sounded a bit predictable. Which i suppose it is, but the small twists like the Herve Leger shoulders make it more modern, and more 'VB'. It reflects Victoria's style well, which i suppose is what collection are meant to do in the first place.
The final collection i was suprised to like was Miss Sixty. When it's previous collections come to mind i picture jeans and then the rest just meges into chav territory. So i usually don't even bother viewing the collection as i never expect anything more. But this time, although the majority is quite plainly of the norm, i found myself quite entranced by two of the outfits. The trashy pop look is reborn and revolutionised through the use of exaggerated puff sleves and tailored waists...
