Christian Lacroix forever...













Every beginning of a new season I like browsing designers' sites to get inspired. Etro, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Gucci, Marni are some of them. This year what makes me really sad is the fact that Christian Lacroix Fall collection 2009 was apparently the final. The French designer filed for bankruptcy due to the economic downturn. His last show was presented in July. I still hope that he will be able to attract investors. It is really sad when a legendary designer such as Lacroix closes doors.
It maybe is another proof that fashion is not contemporary art but industry...







Δύσκολοι καιροί για πρίγκιπες...

Δεν θα είχα αντίρηση να φορέσω μερικά από αυτά τα φορεματάκια! Επίσης θα ήθελα να δω τη γατούλα σου!
