Bonjour Lanvin Petite Hiver collection, we are glad you are out! Celebrating fairy tale princesses and heroines, the Lanvin Petite collection for Autumn/Winter 2013 combines ‘savoir-faire’ with candy pink dreams, frills, bows and a touch of French grace. ‘The fabrics borrowed from the women’s range and couture finishes combine with sequins and brightly coloured calicos to create a wardrobe for elegant little girls.’ The collection that strokes every hearts, embraces thoughts about beauty, carefreeness, art, dialogues about childhood dreams, happiness and the beautifully creative mind’s, Alber Elbaz’s latest tangible fantasies. We love how he captured the playfulness in both the collection and the video – it’s really refreshing to see little girls portrayed as, well just that, little girls with no excessive makeup and hair; just the pure miniature themselves having fun and being cuter than ever.

Bonjour Lanvin Petite Hiver Collection, wir sind froh, dass du da bist! Während Märchenprinzessinnen und Heldinnen gefeiert werden, kombiniert die Lanvin Petite Kollektion für den Herbst/Winter 2013 ‘savoir-faire’ mit bonbonrosa Träumen, Rüschen, Schleifen und einem Hauch französischer Grazie.

Giles Deacon is a British fashion designer, and is best known for his playful designs, which are blurring the boundaries between high art and pop culture, through the roots of intense craftsmanship – what grounds Deacon as a designer also. The king of dark romance did a remarkable job of balancing out shapes, as well as in intricately applying laser cut techniques on the palest of antique gold, and yet again succeeded in producing couture-quality garments together with some very wearable pieces. All of his designs carry a great deal of theatrical features, where the delicate, yet strong prints and contrast of different materials rule the overall atmosphere of the collection. In his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, most notably, the sleeves were back in exaggerated shapes and sizes, while the ethereal gowns and otherworldly creations also carried a great hint of melancholy blended strong artistic vision. Apparently he took inspiration from the idea of heaven and hell, to me though, this is just pure heaven!

French designer, Alexis Mabille’s girls were wrapped in whirls of weightless, pleated, frayed organza, nude lace, cascades of flowers, bouquets of origami roses and a lot of nets that evoked a romantic element of the collection with a hint of ‘baroque exaggeration’. Taking inspiration from the 18th century, the new Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe is what Mabille recalled, in which the attributes of royalty, elegance and luxury played the leading role, and was strengthen by the twist as the models were styled with silver slicked back French braids. Lace frills and rich strong forms of sweetness dominated throughout the collection, which consistently showcased a new form of couture, or more precisely candy-couture. Tell us whether it is sweet enough for you?!

Die Mädchen beim französischen Designer Alexis Mabille waren in Strudeln aus schwerelosem, gefaltetem und gefranstem Organza, Spitze in Nude, Kaskaden aus Blumen, Sträuße aus Origami Rosen und viel Netz gehüllt, was das romantische Element in der Kollektion mit einem Hauch ‘barocker Übertreibung’ hervorrief.

Probably each one of us has weaknesses, which result the feeling of ‘wanting them all’; sweets, shoes, magazines, diamonds…at this time mine was the Valentino collection from the very first piece to the last. It was love at first sight. Usually people are selective and has particular view on what do they want to show to the audience, but this time I just could not be one – I wanted to show you all. The designer duo draw inspiration from the eponymous painting called Girl With a Pearl Earring from Vermeer. They wanted to capture women in a private moment, and probably this intimate approach to design for the women, for the muse led to such honest and beautiful collection.

Wahrscheinlich hat jeder von uns seine Schwächen, die in dem Gefühl ‘Ich möchte alles haben’ resultieren: Süßigkeiten, Schuhe, Zeitschriften, Diamanten… (more…)
