very noticeable absence in haute couture this week, christian lacroix. regardless of the other houses and trends…you could always bet on lacroix for a little touch of crazy.
1-5: christian lacroix haute couture fall 2007
on the ninth day of christmas my true love gave to me, nine ladies dancing. so continuing with the 12 days of christmas (of which i started at 10, big whoop) i give you 3 looks for dancing holiday ladies. one of the greatest things about this season is the parties. the best ones are usually filled with really old friends who know pretty much everything about you. thus, you can dance like a crazy person and drink too much wine and eat too many cookies without feeling weird. so i took a gander through the collections and here you have three super fun party looks for all the dancing ladies out there. trouble is there are ten lords-a-leaping…somebody is going home alone. wop wop. happy holidays!
1: i hope they play single ladies: coat by isaac mizrahi, dress by matthew williamson, tights and shoes by marni
2: i’m going to drink so much egg nog it’s not even funny: coat by temperley london, dress by luella, bow necklace by kate spade, tights and shoes by milly
3: look how fancy i am: coat by christian dior, dress by christian lacroix, booties by isabel marant
farewell msr. lacroix.
1: damn the man: christian lacroix haute couture.
it is a dark day for couture. on the heels of my previous post, talking about how awesome lacroix is and how i enjoyed my time working in their showrooms, i am faced with this cruel reality. couture and ready to wear will end and the house will be reduced to a licensing operation. what a cruel world it is.
