As we slowly move into autumn, the sporty yet innocent
lace ruffled skirts are to be put away at the bottom
of your wardrobe. The romantic sweetness from earlier
this year will see a drastic change as temperatures
slowly drop. Heralded by the recently released collections
of big-name designer brands, luxurious and exotic
elements will set trends for the winter. Party people
will dress like vampires from the Gothic age, while
sipping Bloody Marys in the cold evenings this year.
As a sharp contrast to the
showy spring fads, which couldn¡¦t seem to get enough
of the big, flashy stones, most brands have toned
things down with their new lines of luxurious clothing,
using classy cuts and exquisite fabrics to flatter
modern aristocrats. One exception is Chanel¡¦s new
series of dresses that features jewel accessories
and crystal ornaments. In the season¡¦s new collections,
from fitted wool overcoats with a graceful St. Petersburg
bourgeoise style with arctic sable-fur wide collars,
to delicate soft and silky dresses in detailed embroidery.
Every inch of the clothing is delicately sown together,
spoiling you with the highest quality of materials.
Careful designs guarantee a lasting quality that
allows no imitation. Following these trends might
be costly, but well worth tightening your belts
new tribe of city nomads
As projected in this coming
winter¡¦s trends, you may easily travel to the extensive
northern grasslands, where your endless daily grind
vanishes into the vast greenness. Designers seem
to read the minds of city dwellers¡¦ suppressed wishes,
putting soft buckskin boots, floral-patterned woven
shawls, hare-fur ear covers, dyed-cotton blouses,
and sable-fur leather coats on the stage as the
winter¡¦s most "in" items. Put them on
and you are ready to vault into the saddle and gallop
off into the wilds.
charm of the Gothic Age
YvesSaintLaurant (YSL) and
GUCCI¡¦s new lines are showing strong Gothic elements.
Black sets the main theme in both loose and tight-fitting
outlines. This all seems to be portraying the Dracula
sentiment of degraded nobility. Trendy people will
stop merrymaking to put up masks of cold pride as
the favored expressions this winter. Indeed, the
Bloody Mary may be the most popular drink this Halloween.
