Can I all redirect you over here?
Wordpress was being too restrictive for me, design-wise & hence I decided to switch to Blogger. I would love it if you would follow me over there & happy holidays everybody!

“After a week of in-your-face colors and dizzying prints, Francisco Costa served up a palette cleanser for Spring.(…) What was new was the softness and the femininity. Occasionally in the past, Costa’s minimalism has erred on the conceptual side. He’s been slowly moving away from the sculptural constructions that used to define his work, but he said good-bye to them for good this season.
In their place were slipdresses that by their very definition had a real sense of the body.”

“In Francisco Costa’s hands, everything was as light and fragile as thistledown, the palette an ethereal blend of face-powder pinks, ice blues, and mauves, and pale vanilla yellows like Jazz Age lingerie. In fact, many of the dresses resembled lingerie of the type that Daisy Buchanan might have worn.”

Fabergé pyjamas from Balmain. Olivier Rousteing traded Las Vegas for St. Petersburg and Nudie suits for Fabergé eggs. He looked to czarist Russia. (x)
“Summer in St. Petersburg was as light as the winters were dark. For twenty-two hours the atmosphere of the city was suffused with light. By eleven in the evening the colors of the day had faded into a milky haze of silver and pearl, and the city veiled in iridescence, slept in silence.”
