Bonjour! The Buying team is busy finishing up our Spring 2012 orders and just arrived back in the states fresh from Paris. We are feeling very inspired after seeing Alber’s Lanvin angel in Hell and Giambattista Valli’s globetrotting memories.
Alber took us to the dark side with his serpent prints and layered chokers. Exaggerated jeweled shoulder pads and oversized crucifixes had this girly girl ready to go goth for Spring.

Giambattista Valli brightened up our day with bright yellow and coral blending with beautiful ivory and cream. The animal print for his spring collection was Zebra done in coral, yellow and brown. The intricate silver and gold embroidery was so finely done that everyone took notice of the time and craftsmanship that was put into this collection.
Using an old home in the heart of Paris, his showroom took you through an African Safari experience with giraffe and zebra skin rugs and vintage furniture. From the flowers to the spiraling staircases, we immediately felt like a chic Parisian.
Spring is right around the corner which way will you go Serpent Goth or Globetrotting Fashionista? Au Revoir! Le Trois
