Oh, the DRAMA

before anyone writes a professional column about this collection

CHANEL SPRING COUTURE

I'll give you my take, sitting here at my desk in Houston, Texas, nowhere near the runway of Paris

before I go farther, I'll say how I've been lamenting the
"casualness" of dress in today's world.
lamenting to my girlfriends who, like me, remember when
WE DRESSED !!

anyway.

with this new collection I think Mr. Lagerfeld has made a 
dramatic inroad toward
THE RETURN OF THE SUIT
THE RETURN OF THE DRESS "DRESS"




& the RETURN OF THE LITTLE HAT
the proper little hat
PROPER SHOE


did any of you guys see Tom Ford's movie, THE SINGLE MAN?
in this film Julienne Moore played a character from the 60's.
if you remember those years you'll recall how perfectly she was attired in every single scene.

this collection makes me think of those days, the days of JACQUELINE KENNEDY





the continuation of the deep "V" neckline, the plunging neckline.



I'm positive that my favorite aunt had an outfit 
exactly like this one, only in bright red,
which I used to try on & dream of dancing with the Prince.










the absence of COLOR !!!
the presence of SILVER & GLITTER
the FEATHERS

the regalness of the entire show, maybe a bit like those "DYNASTY" DAYS"
where everything was sculpted and perfect ???

whatta do ya think?

if you follow me on INSTAGRAM you'll have already seen
the posting of the Giambattista Valli Couture show.
