fashion materials Spring/Summer 2011

Lace is usually synonymous with retro romance and even sexiness, but rarely in modern fantasy. But it is the latter that the creators have decided to question this season, trying to gauge the ability of this delicate matter to enter the heart of the future of fashion.

Shameless old-lace
  • At Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs is the craftsmanship in the service of the megalomania of the monogram, offering delicacy and fragility to become a logo for the occasion, the main reason for a gossamer lace. It therefore earns far more sophisticated, luxurious and unexpected.
  • At Christopher Kane, said lace no longer in painstaking refinement of lace from Calais, but rather an advanced technique allows the laser to perforate the leather with the precision of a diamond. Although carved in a pattern somewhat dated, it becomes a perfect example of a successful marriage between heritage and modernity, paving the way for multiple interpretations of the idea of ​​"lace".
  • Finally, under the pen of Vanessa Bruno, the lace is also trying to break free from his wise references by choosing a color processing supercharged. However, given the lack of subtlety of the final result, we regret that the designer has not dug more about it.
In summary, if the bunch of white lace Dolce & Gabbana is likely to make the eye to all the fashionista addicted to summer variations of lace virgin, but we will try to leave a place in our wardrobes to lace experimental history of encouraging the latter to continue its investigations into an expression still more innovative.

  • When this material investing the toilet select for their luster satin radiate the "place to be" in the summer, there is no doubt of its success. Thus, whether on a cool dress and sexy as hell signed Stella McCartney or harem pants honoring the greatest moments of the era Yves Saint Laurent, satin used to wonder will the sophisticated ultra sensual outfits.
Unfortunately, this is not the same when the satin falls in love with a more adventurous style...
  • At Miu Miu, toilets and cruelly false severe lack of this glamor inseparable from the use of satin. Similarly, when Marc Jacobs uses it to design a high-waisted pants pink, it's hard to see anything but a girly pajama pants ...
In other words, if you want to get out the satin of her domestic duties, it is only a toilet designed to shine "by night" that require attention.
