PARIS OOH LA LA
Sheer black stockings, glossy red lips, just a glimpse of lingerie Chic and cheeky, the City Of Light inspired some of the seasons best collections. 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. Coquettish, frivolous and strictly after-dark, the look is all about OTT glamour: lots of lace and ruffles and bows and frills and silks and satins. It manages to stay on the sophisticated side of sexy, though. Just. Ooh la la indeed.
