fall 09/10: Balmain, Karl Lagerfeld, Preen, Costume National, Giorgio Armani
This season what's black and shiny strut down the runway together, like a lock and key. Designers embraced the darker side without forsaking shine.
Futurism was present at the house of Balmain and Karl Lagerfeld, wherein the former, a metallic and geometric bodice added a futuristic feel to a ruffled mini dress, while the latter showcased a classic LBD embellished with a crisp shimmery neckline. At Preen, a figure hugging number was brought to life with swirls of violet sheen that reminds me of molten lava. An asymmetrical dress at Costume National was well balanced with two minimalist black and crinkled golden halves. Giorgio Armani's show was nothing short of classic with a prettily draped silver and black sweetheart dress, paired with a lush velvet coat.
