TRENDS s/s 09 - Forever Pieces


Recession? Depression? Who wouldn’t be cheered up by Dolce & Gabbana’s almost OTT fabulous brocade suiting? Or by Lanvin’s jewel-encrusted skirt and matching necklace? Or by Alexander McQueen’s glittering crystal catsuit?
Despite the gloom and doom, the big players this season offered up fantasy fashion – the kind of ‘forever’ pieces that we could all fall in love with.
These are not just clothes for SS/09 – these are clothes without a sell-by-date.
From ornate eveningwear like Balmain’s bandage dress with diamonds to reworked classics like Burberry’s new metallic trench, this was about designers playing to their own strengths, ignoring trends and simply doing what they do best.
Buy now and keep forever.
