Obsession Poodle – Part 2

FASHION, TREND

The poodle skirt is emblematic of the 50s, though it was not so usual.
I so want a 50s party to swing such an outfit (I’d shorten the skirt before, you can imagine), with a ponytail, socks and a short-sleeved shy pullover.
And above all, I want the partner too. Soon a post about men wearing Pompadour. Yum.

If you’re poodle skirtaholic, this is a present for you.

To meet Paris coolest cats last weekend, you just had to drop by the Yellow Store, and discover the Livestrong Busy P Air Force 1, next to Cool Cats creations. Livestrong is superchampion Lance Armstrong’s foundation, and collects funds for the research to fight cancer. There is also an incredible Nike Stages exhibition at Paris Galerie Perrotin that I will soon write about.

Alexis Mabille / Couture FW09

FASHION

Though not remarkable, Alexis Mabille’s latest couture collection is a combo of many of next season’s trends. I haven’t understood yet why they are so undressed for Fall – Winter. Color palette is half basics with black & white, half young lady pastels.

Christian Dior / Couture FW09

BEAUTY, FASHION, PEOPLE, TREND

TIME TRAVEL. John Galliano reviews history for Christian Dior couture FW 09. Remember the 50s ? Well imagine these women emancipated, celebrating feminity and sensuality. It’s as if the 80s golden ladies had been teletransportated three decades before and were ruling fashion. Martine Mc Fly is in the place. See-through outfits, outrageous colors and patterns alternance with wise pastels, stockings a gogo, underwear on heels, agressive make up, crazy tight tight fingerwaves. The hairdo combined with the attitude is courtisanesque. Or these models could be the brand new Barbie Dita Von Teese, mixing the day outfit with the evening lace undies. Half a lady and wife, half a classy whore.
See Focus below the silhouettes pics. And see garter belts…. everywhere !






Season after season, animals are still hot

Silk and fluidity, as seen in ready-to-wear for next season


Feathers are totally in since 2 seasons, here on these fabulous hats



Dotted stocking and undies will definetely be a hit in fall / winter
