PFW fw 2011-2012: The Forest of Monsieur Lagerfeld.

This is one of the shows I always anticipate during PFW and it never lets me down! Can you guess which one it is? I'll give you two hints. It was inspired by the German artist Caspar David Friedrich and the designer is no one else but Karl Lagerfeld. Well, I think no more hints are needed. 
Don't you just love the shadowy palette?

MFW Highlight: "Every Woman Has a Star"

Even though Milan Fashion Week ended a few days ago, and Paris Fashion Week has already started, I'm still daydreaming with the stars that invaded the catwalks of Dolce&Gabbana's show.  "Every woman has a star" said Steffano Gabbana backstage, and the truth is that is something that I have always believed in. 
The stars weren't the only thing that made me fall in love with the collection. The accesories, sparkles, blazers, and the touch of lace that never misses any of their show, played a major role as well. Not to talk about the mood of masculine vs. feminine looks which was the main focus of the collection. The only thing that I have to mention is that there sometimes were too many sparkles for my taste, but I guess that was done to emphasize the proganists of the show (aka the stars) and to add a touch of femininity. Overall, I found that this collection makes two very opposite looks work together by adding a touch of magic. I hope that next season my life will be full of stars. And if you haven't found yours, look for it because it's somewhere up there in the sky. This wasn't only a spectacular show, and one of my personal favorites for a while, but it was also a show wich had a message that we can all learn from.

What do you think about the whole masculinity vs. feminity concept of the show? Do you think that tom boy outfits are the new symbol of femininity?

P.S: Sorry for the lack of posts, but lately I have been really bussy. I hope to be less bussy in the future so that I can really get back to blogging as I used to before. Thanks for the people who still leave those wonderful comments, they really cheer me up!
