Dream a Little Dream

As promised, some additional highlights from the Fall 2009 Couture shows last week in Paris. I love the couture collections – it is all so utterly unattainable that it makes it much easier to simply enjoy the work for its own sake. Click to enlarge for a closer look at some of the jaw-dropping details.

Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld demonstrates why he deserves his crown.


Elie Saab.
So pretty I can't quite bring myself to care whether he bit Karl.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Valentino. I completely disagree with Cathy Horyn on this one
I'd love to stand next to anyone wearing one of these creations.

Christian Lacroix. Very likely the last couture show from Lacroix,
whose house declared bankruptcy this spring,
and a true community effort:
seamstresses, embroiderers and milliners donated their time;
Ines de la Fressange and Bruno Frisoni of Roger Vivier and
Diego della Valle contributed shoes;
and the models walked for 50 euros each.
