FASHIONOLOGIE provided these pictures for this entire post… well almost, the last picture was gotten somewhere else. I started this post with that picture because well… those are some big perfume bottles!!!!
Here I will talk about how I got a tip yesterday about floating panels, and the background for this line, and other key bits of interest.
I found this picture a few days ago and thought it was pretty daring, yet hillarious at the same time. You can take a gander before diving into the Fab Four although, if you’re subscribed to many other blogs you’ve seen it.
I love this look and in it Mr. Lagerfield uses the “floating panels” concept, with the fabric flowing from the back. Cutouts done well are a plus for me, and so I love this!! The way that the skirt is made rocks my freaking socks! I love volume, and if you haven’t noticed, I’m a fan of dark colors as well as bright.! The large belt and accompanying what I believe to be a leaf broach, set the look off!
Here’s another floating panel. The bejewled dress as well as the “floating panel” behind it strike my fancy. You can’t see just how much the panels move and “float” in the pictures I’ve selected but if you go to the gallery and Fashionologie, or if you get a chance to see the show footage, they will undoubtedly fly! I’m a fan of the shoulder caps, as well as what looks to me to be finger gloves…
I beleive this panel is connected at the model’s neck. No matter where it’s connected, the dress has me wondering. I’m undecided about it and I just figuired out why. It reminds me of in middle school when we used to take colored pens and make those circle things on our notepads. It looked just like that!! The stockings are lovely, and so are the heels. I’m just undecided about that dress, and to be entirely truthful, if I don’t like it, it can sway my view of the entire look…
This last look made my breath stop. I hadn’t seen a male model in coverage for this week YET! I was kind of saddened because hither to this week I hadn’t been as exposed to much couture besides in magazines and television, besides posing of course, and I always thought that male couture was out there, it was just something I’d never found.
Anyways enough about my troubles hahaha, now on to the picture. When I saw the picture, like I said my breath stopped. The guy get’s a line, because well, I’m a lover for a sharp clean chic suit! Oh, and as a subscriber to the dapper style I’m in LOVE with bow times… ’nuff said. For our lady, I love that her panel has become more of a train! I think the work done on this dress is to die for! Oh, and I do love those lace up ankle high boots! She has on some finger covers to, but I think I love this collection and pieces like this one in particular so much because at one point in time I wanted to design a line of dresses that were Victorian styled with short skirts like this one. I also wanted material to come out of the back but I didn’t want it to touch the ground, only graze it. In my mind I had worked up 3 such concoctions, in blue, green, and yellow, as well as a lingerie type one that was red and black. Those were back in teh days I thought I could be a designer though.
For the last picture of the post we have Mr. Lagerfield himself along with some of the looks… DASHING!
