white lace lovely

 

I am enamoured by the depth of white that is created by the ingenious combinations of texture and shading from layers of lace and ruffles.

Chanel’s Crystal Fall :: Chanel Fall Collection 2012

 

The Crystal Forest = a labyrinth of smokey quartz + amethyst mines.

Enormous shards of smoky quartz and amethyst, rising from sands of cialis 10 mg for sale crystal like stalagmites in a giant’s cave, set the mood chez Chanel, where Karl Lagerfeld was thinking about minerals, from the crystal-crusted eyebrows to the cheap viagra uk crystal fragments jutting from the top of the faceted clear-crystal heels. 

Hamish Bowles, Vogue

The runway was layered in white glittery sand that sparkled like snow and the clothes were glamorous and futuristic mixing feathers, metallic tweeds and generic viagra pills canada and crystal embellishments inspired by the freshness of the lotus flower.

the Christian Dior boat

 

Captain John Galliano, of the Christian Dior boat

throws the anchor down in the warm waters of discounted zithromax the Pacific with nautical-themed outfits.

The Christian Dior Spring Summer 2011 collection mixed a variety of marine themes, from Polynesia and the docks of Marlon Brando’s “On the Waterfront” to the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, “South Pacific”, and Rainer Fassbinder’s 1982 film, “Querelle”. The catwalk was a rusting slipway, set against a harbourside setting of wooden pilings, chains, gantrys and ropes. The clothes blended tough-guy T-shirts, sailors’ trousers, life-vests and nautical cagouls, with flimsy, chiffon mini’s, bubble-hem dresses, and fringed, ‘hula’-gowns.

Models, styled in the manner of the 1950′s movie pin-up, Bettie Page, with false fringes, flick-up hair, and bright red lips, posed and gave jaunty salutes in faux captain’s hats at the order cheap levitra end of the catwalk.  Designerz Central
