Obession Of The Moment : Part 1

Frous frous, ruffles and frills...

Were literally all over the runway. Stella, Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin, Galliano, D&G, the list goes on. But while these are all the same "item", they are very versatile and can go from delicate to edgy. It gives such a fresh pop to any outfit, and when you see the runway pictures you really feel it's spring, in its best representation.

At Sonia Rykiel the girls seemed like angels that just dropped out of a cloud. Everything was so fresh, airy, ethereal, poetic, dreamy and overall simply beautiful .


Stella McCartney made a couple flirty dresses, frilly and sheer, perfect for a hot summer day.



Luella also included ruffles and frills in her collection, which gave a super cool geeky and young vibe the designer is known for. And my personal favorite. It's the easiest to translate into your everyday wear!


D&G was , for a change, not slutty at all, but that didn't keep the clothes from being super sexy. I loved the delirious prints, and the crazy-hippie-meets-gipsy feel of the whole collection. And leather gladiators are the perfect style to complete this look.
John Galliano was, as always....Galliano. Spectacular clothes, beautiful décor, a show in its own way. The whole collection was very childish and innocent and naive, with lovely colors such as dusty pink and faded yellow. It simply seemed like a celebration of life and joy and happiness


Burberry Prorsum was also frilly, but à la Burberry girl ; as in, super-feminine while being edgy and tough with details such as patent leather, tough belts, dark sunglasses and badass ankle boots.

Lanvin....a girl can dream right? The clothes were gorgeous, with frills not on the bottom of dresses, but on the top. Unexpected and very efficient! The colors were again so rich and luxurious and deep (jewel tones = yum). It's all about elegance and high class...If I were a fashion editor, Lanvin would with no doubt be a staple. And this show was Lanvin at its pure Lanvin-ess. Congrats Alber!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Wow, I love all these looks! Normally I can't stand the "Copy This Look" features, but the stuff you picked is so perfect (and affordable) that I'm quite tempted to rush out and buy all the items you picked. Nice feature!

In the Peter Jensen collection for Topshop there was *the* most beautiful and understated dress with ruffles... and it sold out. SO gutted!

LML a dit…

love ruffles and tiers! nice outfits you put together :) my prom dress last year was tiered and ruffled, kindla like the luella collection!

Teresa a dit…

Damn I can never turn away from pretty ruffley things. I love your DIY versions, very classy. And D&G manages to surprise me with their pretty floral mismatchy ruffles. In fact I'm always surprised when D&G don't roll out the whole metallic sadomasochism schtick.

Isa a dit…

yummy, you brought together exactly the looks that I liked about the runways. that new d&g look is great, isn´t it?
and luella.. no designer got me more excited this time, so nerdy wonderful.
