"From heaven to hell and back again, life is a funny thing. beauty can come from the most strangest of places even the most disgusting places." RIP Lee Alexander McQueen. This blog is dedicated to you, your art, your beauty, and your influence. Long live McQueen!
Interestingly enough, I love the fine lines in this collection. I also love the shoes and shift dresses. Even though the Shakespearean arms reflect YSL's signature style, the trend seems to be catching on next Fall. I'm excited, but even more so for the poofy shoulders which are sure to follow. Also love the deep V neck cut!
I've never showed you guys this, but it's one of my favorite shoots I've worked on. I had so much fun picking out the clothes and jewelry, and I die for these boots. It was one of my first shoots, it's not retouched, and I don't believe we ever submitted it for publication! Enjoy!
We are so excited for this collection for the same reason we were for the Versace collection: the details. Valli is great with bringing oomph and sex appeal into his clothing, but one thing I have yet to see from him is intricate detailing, that which he has perfected (or so it seems) in this collection. We can't wait to see the show tomorrow! However we're not sure how we feel about sequins in a couture collections.
Christian Dior's last couture collection was a disaster. With little improvement this season, I'm sure LVMH's owners are considering bringing Galliano back. Yes, the pieces are beautiful, but they're not extraordinary, which is what John would have brought to the table. Some of the looks were cringe-worthy for a couture collection, but it was a vast improvement from last season. Phew.
