precisely sliced silhoettes predicted for 2008/2009.
Christian Dior, Mr John
Galliano used images of Me Jacky Kennedy and Me Audrey
Hepburn in their newest collection, almost copying the look, but
injecting more modern fabrics. For his own label he was
inspired by Art Deco images, bright colours, sheerness and
weightlessness of fabrics.
Mr Karl Lagerfeld (for Chanel)
had fun demistifynig the classics: His coats are longer, his
jackets have belts, and asymmetric detail adorns his satin
evening gowns. And for his own label, he embreced the non
colours: black and white, which he loves so much.
Mr Cristian Lacroix
have opted to stay with couture, and experimented with balloon
sleeves, cowl backs, ruffles, and combining the colours: fuchsia
and old gold.

of the Kenzo house) inspired a range that is rich in
reminiscence, sumptuous in colours, and his shapes and volumes

of the 1950’s wardrobe of Elizabeth the 2nd. He
remembered the Victorian era and used antique jewellery,
bustiers and empire waistlines.
Simon Rademan, we will celebrate
femininity in 2008/2009, full length, flowing gowns in textured
combinations and “happy” colours… We will remain chic, re-invent
elegance, project true style, but inspire strength and
rediscover romance… where women will be women again, …and men
will be men!
So, be it the

eye, apply what suits you best. And have fun.
