Christian Lacroix- Fall 2008

In Paris, Christian Lacroix endured us with his ready-to-wear collection for fall 2008. A cream short sleeve bubble shape coat opened the show, which immediately created the same excitement we usually get from his couture collection. Bows on dresses, tulip shape skirts and feathers placed on sleeves and hemlines was only a fraction of what made this show exciting; my attention slowly focused on the series of satin dresses which proceeded down the runway in purple, reds, lime greens, fuchsia and orange; absolutely fascinating. This opulent collection was very much young and modern. Not only was the funnel neck coats incredibly and structurally designed, but the vibrant solid block colours on silhouettes, made Christian Lacroix show quirky and exciting.
