Trends a/w 2009 - Paris Ooh La La

PARIS OOH LA LA

More specifically, the Paris fashion muses of the 80s – Lou Lou de la Falaise and Ines de la Fressange – inspired everyone from Balenciaga to Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu to Lacroix.

It manages to stay on the sophisticated side of sexy, though. Just. Ooh la la indeed.
