Designers were big into jewelry for Fall... heading the bijoux obsession was Oscar de la Renta with his Fall 2012 Collection. At the runway show, we marveled over the crystallized headbands, belts, and shoes the models wore, but nothing compared to clothing.Ornate jewel prints were blown up and printed onto icy blue and pale pink sheath dresses, full skirts, parkas, and skinny pants. No piece was left unadorned; over-sized jewels were embellished onto dresses and shrunken jackets; the models were literally dripping in jewelry! His collection was fun and surrounded by a sea of dark Fall collections, he gave us just what we needed. Fresh, sophisticated, and enjoyable fashion.
Alber Elbaz celebrated his 10th anniversary designing for Lanvin with a fabulously feminine and glamorous runway show. From top to bottom, he gave statement necklaces, embroidered clothing, sparkly handbags, and even strass shoes! The must-have shoe of the collection was the hot pink satin pump with glitter studs on the soles!
As for the jewelry, Alber layered the necklaces and paired matching gigantic drop earrings to complete his looks. Here is a photo of the "Barbara" story from the Lanvin showroom in Paris.
Last but certainly not least, the clothing! The collection was infused with jacquard, brocade, and lame pieces that were shimmered in metallic.
During our appointment in Paris, Marissa fell for Look 36, a strapless sweetheart neck dress with amazing crystal embroidery. Now this is how you celebrate 10 years!
