Lanvin – Large metallic bag

I’m obsessed with this beautiful purple bag by Lanvin. They have it at Holt’s and I go in to drool over it occasionally. It’s more incredible in person.

Purple large metallic bag with silver trims on the corners and the main opening. Chain link handles sit on either side. A popper fastening sits on the main opening. A zip pocket sits on the lining.

I love LeSportsac’s prints

I’ve always thought LeSportsac was a little too expensive for a nylon bag; it has the Prada syndrome. That being said, I did by a Tokidoki messenger bag by Le Sportsac because it was damn cute. The prints are something this company does damn well.

This collection is weird. I really like some of the minimalist pieces, but they don’t represent couture to me. As a member of The Fashion Spot said, who really needs $20,000 leggings. It’s very ready to wear. The last two dresses are more what I’m looking for. I felt the collection didn’t have a single direction or theme. It was like he did three collections: minimalist, ethereal and highly structured.

Chanel Haute Couture – Spring Summer 2008

I’m having a love hate relationship with the Chanel Haute Couture – Spring Summer 2008 collection. On one hand, some of the outfits are to die for, very beautiful. However, I hate the presentation. The large tacky Chanel jacket in the background. Why the hell aren’t the models wearing heels. Check out style.it and look at how awful the collection photos are. The models don’t know how to pose in flats and it’s just plain awkward and unflattering. Devon Aoki looks like hell, as does the dress, IMO. The shoes are awful.

I do love the wrap skirts and the jackets.

Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture – Spring Summer 2008

Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture – Spring Summer 2008
Giorgio Armani Prive is another designer that doesn’t do anything for me during HC. His stuff is just to damn wearable. However, I did see a few looks that I thought were interesting.

I can’t believe that I’m bored by the Christian Dior Spring Summer 2008 Haute Couture collection

I’ve said it. John has officially bored me. It’s like I’ve been seeing the same collection for the past few seasons, with no real movement forward. Don’t get me wrong, the garments are made to perfection and the details are incredible. I’m just bored with this, even with the Klimt references. That’s really damn hard to do, Klimt is my favourite artist! That being said, there are a few pieces that I liked. (Click on thumbnails for larger images)
