Paris Spring 08 VI

1. John Galliano:

The Galliano show was amazing, it reminded me of back in the day when models like Nadja Auermann owned the runway and knew how to bring his vision to life. It's weird, because it's not that his shows haven't been outrageous and fantastic in the past years, but the mood and the setting was Galliano at his absolute best. You can definitely see it in the model's faces. This trench is so soft and airy, I can't help but see a 1920's woman wearing it at the beach in a black and white picture.

There are no words to describe how awesome this is. I think this is one of the least practical gowns I've seen but that certainly doesn't take away from its magical qualities.

Want it.

Love the cardigan-as-skirt skirt. This is what Galliano daytime casual attire looks like; and why would anyone want to wear anything else?

Well I can't just have one swimsuit, now can I?

2. Sonia Rykiel:

How cool are these tromp l'oeil intarsia sweater dresses? I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them. I would love to have these and I'd wear them everyday for the rest of my life. The fake trench coat one is my absolute favorite.

Yellow is the absolute IT color for spring. This dress is very cute and can be worn casually with sandals or spruced up with some killer heels for a fancy night on the town.

As much as I love bright, bold looks, I think I'm developing a soft spot for faux barely-there clothes. I say faux, because these aren't skimpy outfits that aren't wearable in real life, but clothes made with such soft and slinky fabrics in barely there colors that it's like you're wearing nothing at all!

3. Miu Miu:

Why cover up your legs in the spring time?
Short and sweet review, just like the collection.
