How fabulous is that Lanvin dress from 2003 Natalia’s wearing? It was a gorgeous collection…
Well, today I’m following a “talk about what you see” rule, so please don’t seek any logic in a story – just enjoy the reading (hopefully).
According to the latest fashion news, Giles Deacon left Ungaro and nobody knows who is going to replace him. I quietly hope it’s going to be Giambattista Valli because he’s highly capable of producing couture, ready-to-wear, colour, gorgeous shapes, chic and impeccable cut. He would feel solid to me and it would be nice to see somebody like him finally giving the house of Ungaro plenty of TLC after it’s been through hands of several designers and, most shockingly, Lindsay Lohan.
Another house that’s trying to get their act together is, of course, Dior. Apparently, Mr Jacobs will be replacing him. I’m not going to jump in with my opinion on the new creative collaboration, however, do want to mention that, as far as Dior is concerned, I’m totally with Franca Sozzani on this, but frankly I don’t think Galliano would actually return to the house of Dior after they treated him like some unwanted toy that got a few dusty spots, nor Dior would have guts to apologise to the designer. Shame, but here we go.
Oh, lets talk more about fashion houses, shall we? To celebrate the launch of their first perfume Bottega Veneta released a short movie directed by Christian Weber and Tomas Maier. It’s all about sensations as if showing the birth of the fragrance itself. Beautiful and classy, as always.
And that’s about it for now. Don’t want to keep you in front of your screen for ages on a glorious Saturday morning.
