Pre-fall 09: Christian Lacroix

A brighter side for the recession? Of course!

First is the long waited inauguration day of Obama, which, no, I'm not going to blog about it after almost every others had comprehensively written about. Let's just see what the new president will do.

The other, would have to be Christian Lacroix for coming out with his first ever cruise collection. Yes, the battle with the credit crunch brought out this pre-fall collection from the gentlemen. But aside from the commercialism of other pre-fall collections, Lacroix managed to stay true to his dynamic aesthetics with a well mix of wearability.

Personally, one of the best pre-fall collections so far. Loving the outerwears especially. Cocktail dresses are really sweet, while the evening looked absolutely elegant, though the last drape gown might seem a little overused by other designers like Haider Ackermann or Donna Karen.
