Lanvin S/S10

October 4, 2009 § 6 Comments

This collection was absolutely magnificent, everything was breathtaking. The peplum dresses, plisse jumpsuits, chain strap shoes, all of it, everything was deeply ‘lanvin’; sculptural yet feminine. Alber Elbaz is a genious! There really aren’t enough praise in the world I could type to describe how much I love this collection so why don’t you take a look for yourselves?

Balmain S/S10

October 2, 2009 § 2 Comments

I held my breath as I clicked the the “Balmain” link on style.it (style.com was behind, what do you do when the Americans are being slow? You turn to he French or Italians!), expecting a bad collection because of all this ‘Balmain vs Balenciaga’ talk (Balenciaga supposedly won, but I didn’t really like it so I was expecting the worst). Also I do generally expect a bad season after every few good seasons. Like this season; Oscar De La Renta, Carolina Herrera, Prada and Zac Posen all delivered collections that were not up to their usual standard.

I was delightfully surprised and breathed a sigh of relieve when the pictures loaded! It was just good old Balmain like we’ve been seeing for the past few seasons. Sexy, strong, but with a good splash of feminine! And my favourite ‘oldy, but goldy’ model Daria Werbowy opened(yes, I know she’s only 26 but she’s been on the scene long enough to be considered a oldy). There wasn’t anything ground breaking but that’s ok, because we love the Balmain look!

I walked around the block in these babies to break them in and wow, I’ve lost feeling in my little toes. They didn’t look that high in the photo I posted last night but they’re 4 inches, I’m going to get some gel pads for the inside because the ball of my feet feel like they’re on fire and I only walked for 30 minutes.
