Haute Couture SS06 II
LOVED it! Usually I think Chanel is lovely and classic but not quite for young people. But this collection was just too pretty! The show was dominated by whites and some blacks. And it oddly didn't feature a lot of the typical Chanel tweed suits.
A Karl-evolutionised Chanel suit completed with the biker pants thing Lagerfeld is so fond of.
If you look through the collection, you would notice that most of the skirts and dresses are above-knee-length, which is very modern of Karl Lagerfeld, but admittingly sort of weird for a brand known for classical beauty. Maybe it's this willingness to push foward that makes Chanel continue to be such a classic darling.
Lacroix is usually one of my much anticipated haute couture shows, but I didn't find this collection special at all. This collection as usual, featured lots of strong colors and a variety of shapes. But honestly, only a few outfits were outstanding:
Jean Paul Gaultier
Another one of my favourite collections this haute season. The theme was very rich, Parisian lady with a hint of Greek influence. Just looking at the collection makes me feel like I'm sitting in a Parisian hotel watching all these wealthy, worldly (and possibly rude) women walk by.
