Lanvin Fall/Winter 2012 RTW: Peplum, Jewels, and Hourglass

The great Alber Elbaz is really standing there for nothing. The show was truly amazing, from the beginning till the end (so I heard) waves of models glided through the runway with outstanding pieces that steal your breath away. Suave and tailored, the voluminous skirt sculpted the body in such a way that the matchstick-thin ladies appear curved. I don't intend to be rude, but I have quite an itch (or a big one) with anorexic figure. I think they look depraved and pitiful. Sorry but I can't help it :(

The collection puts higher emphasis on the shoulder and waist-hip area. Solid colours such as violet, chrome yellow, red, bottle green can be seen. I think hourglass silhouette is making a come back. I'll look it up later with Uncle Google.

Last Saturday,  I went to this cool place Social House at Grand Indonesia with a couple of my close friends. One of them was wearing a pink peplum top that I think is extremely gorgeous on her! She has quite a petite body, and the silhouette really suits her figure.

Well, we had a lovely dinner and wonderfully "deep" conversation. It was such a great night!

Little black dress with extra-voluminous skirt, flouncy taffeta dress, they all look lovely. I really love the lustrous black dress with a tiger-faced belt on the waist. I think it looks so fierce, so wild, so sexy.

The redingote coats also look lovely. Long, with a deep cutaway at the front, it creates such a powerful figure that is simultaneously feminine at the same time.

Personal opinion: Weird motorcycle leather look. I don't really appreciate the embossed cable-knit pattern on the black leather. I don't wear leather skirts, so that's probably why.

Evening pieces are loaded with jewels on classic dresses, but still a big emphasis on the hourglass figure. The ladies also wore long leather gloves in gorgeous shades, and the red fur boa is just amazing.

Amazing collection, isn't it? What do you think?
