Louis the XIV declared that "Fashion is the mirror of history." I think his observation was on the money, speaking of which, fashion today is really a business. I've become nonchalant to the business of fashion along with the flamboyant evolution of its self promotion. The artistry still remains out of the public eye, but in the imaginations and craftsmanship of the atelier.
Skirts are a personal favorite. The earliest skirts observed were specifically to cover and protect the genitals from insects, the swishing motion was a deterrant to keep the harrasment in check. The haute designs of skirts today have metamorphosized from long, bouffant, hoops and bustles to hobbled, maxi, midi, mini, a-line, bell, pouf, dirndle, straight, pencil, slit, pleated, circle, full, tailored and statement. Wow! Quite a selection...
Here are a few favorite skirts for Spring:
Perfect for summer
ALBERTA FERRETTI (silk and lace) I love the look of lingerie.
I cannot have enough of the fabulous
prints this season.
I wear this with a black cashmere sweater and pumps.
BOY BAND OF OUTSIDERS (leather) TIBI (techy mesh)
MARNIE (cotton blend) This is sooo 80's! I had to show the shirt, MARNIE is iconoclastic and fresh as a daisy.
MARC JACOBS (striped twill) Great striped skirt with or without the
jacket, my next spring buy, perfect for
travel and the city. NYC STYLE!
DOLCE AND GABBANA (rose print crepe) DOLCE AND GABANNA (high-
waisted black lace)
Gorgeous color! I might have to
order this one.
LANVIN (pique' scuba -jersey) Yikes! This skirt is fantastic.
Wondering what to wear under these gems? I would not advise going
commando. Remember what happened to Hathaway? Check these panties by Stella McCartney:
I used to wear panties like these when I was a kid.
KNICKERS OF THE WEEK
I ordered them in Black and Pale Pink, love, love, love these!
All the fashion above is from NET-A-PORTER SUPER SITE! My favorite online shop.
