I was going to write a post about Dior's Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 collection, but I did not quite feel like it at the present moment... and so preferred to present this Cacharel collection.
Otherwise, today I was at the Peterborough Drama Festival where I was doing a duologue from 'Lady Windermere's Fan' by Oscar Wilde in the 15-16yrs category (my partner and I were awarded the highest mark - and therefore won in this category, although we did not win overall)
Features of the collection included:
- Cloche hat
- Tapered trousers
- Brilliant patterned or coloured tights
- Zigzagging patterns
- Herringbone patterns
- Gloves - both long and shorter
- Icy Blue hue
- Boldly coloured heeled shoes: Yellow, Dark Blue, Red, Pastel Pinks and baby Blues.
^^^ I liked the use of narrow, brightly coloured belts, like the red one above which goes so wonderfully with the matching red shoes, gloves, clutch bag, cloche and even lips. The gloves are actually even more amazing for the streak of icy blue. Love the pattern on the outfit in question. I also love the other outfit here which involves a cloche in the ensemble, and which also has fantastically patterned tights in theory (in practice, only skinny people would look any good in them and, even then, many would wear them with the wrong thing and just end up looking absolutely dreadful. Therefore, not really practical)
