Hot or not: Ugly Betty Poncho

Welcome My Dear!:)
I know, I know, yesterday the Fashion Week in London ended so this post shall seem to you to be out of date…. However, instead of trends for summer I am more and more often wondering: what coat to buy for autumn? Among the photos from autumn and winter collections I found, among others, an original Chloé poncho which, at the first sight, made me think about the first creation of Betty Suarez from „Ugly Betty”. Say, isn’t it similar?:)
On the other hand, I am curious whether Zara and H&M will create any cheaper version of this wonder? And how I would look in something like this in the street? Ha-ha:)
Well, at least autumn is likely to be colourful…
All the best! x

Witajcie Kochani!:)
Wiem, wiem, wczoraj skończył się Tydzień Mody w Londynie, więc pewnie ten post wyda Wam się nie na czasie... jednak zamiast trendów na lato interesuje mnie teraz bardziej: jaki płaszcz kupić na jesień? Wśród zdjęć z pokazów jesienno-zimowych kolekcji znalazłam m.in. oryginalne poncho Chloé, które od razu skojarzyło mi się z pierwszą kreacją Betty Suarez z serialu „Ugly Betty”. Powiedzcie, że nie jest podobne?:)
Swoją drogą, ciekawe czy Zara i H&M stworzą jakąś tańszą wersję tego cuda? I jakbym w czymś takim wyglądała na ulicy? Haha:)
Cóż, przynajmniej zapowiada się kolorowa jesień…
Wszystkiego dobrego! buziaki

Ahaha, it is remarkably similar to the Ugly Betty one. It's a bold piece, to be sure. I think it would be something you either wore every day or never at all, but no in between. Your sketch is gorgeous, by the way.

I am also praying someone remakes that chloe poncho, I am totally feeling ponchos and capes for the fall, such an elegant look. Thanks for posting.

Your blog is seriously cool. I love your illustrations and your fashion rambles. I am actually not a huge fan of the Chloe ponchos. Having said that, I have nothing against ponchos overall (just perhaps that they should be a tad bit discrete and not make you colour blind in the process!).

Your new follower and fellow illustrator (et al).

Fashion ...!

Sabina said...

Hah, you're so right about the similarity to Ugly Betty's poncho. Personally I'm kind of anti-poncho though. I think the best choice if you want outerwear that isn't too structured is to go for a swingy waist length coat or capelet.

Anyway moving on, your rendering of those three girls is gorgeous! It reminds me of 1970s era fashion art. Really nicely done.

Your sketches are characterized by such beautiful and tasteful colour combinations! But that certainly mustn't distract from the fact that they are all based on really fantastic drawings!
