Christian Lacroix, spring 2008

In my opinion Christian Lacroix is a genius and I've always admired his work. His fall 2006 collection was fantastic, so was the spring ready to wear collection the same year and all the 2007 collections impressed me as well.... but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed with his collection for spring 2008. Sure, there was a few pieces that carried the flavor of Lacroix -like the wonderful large bangles and crazy hats. But to be honest, I expected more from Lacroix for spring 2008. I've looked trough the pictures at style.com over and over again, making sure I haven't overlooked something... or maybe I'm just secretly hoping the whole Atlantis theme is going to grow on me. It's Lacroix, yet I can't find anything I'm really excited about... I was expecting to see more bright colours. Lace. Modern high heels. Personally I'm not so crazy about the prints. Oh well...





But let us look at the bright side! Even though the ready to wear collection was a bit disappointing, his couture collection looks fabulous! Not only that -he has designed a line for online store, laredoute.fr! They have also made a really fun website where you can navigate Lily Cole around in a Lacroix landscape.

Christian Lacroix is my favorite designer. Those shoes in the last few pics are wild, in a good way.

Wow...those are some strange hats and bright colors. You don't think it's bright enough?

Cute socks!

Secret Agent: I'm not crazy about all the pattern and lots of bright colours used together in one outfit. I would have loved to see more solid bright colours... just not so many at once, if you get what I mean :)

I have to say I agree with you regarding the patterns - I just don't get it! Simple blocks of colour would have served better.

But I want those rainboots!

Spill it!
