Fashion Post-Gossip Girls

Richard Nicolls
s/s 08

What's not to love?
Bondagy with tight panels of sateen and brocade exposing unexpected bits of flesh and coordinating lingerie. All this pristine pastel and 1980s socialite styling.... Is it an ode to the past two Marc Jacobs collection or simply pointing out bathing is currently a prerequisite for being hot. Sexy, young , rich hot.


Isn't it fascinating that one of the fashion world's most whimsical, on-the-fringe designers finished their collection with youthful frocks that even Blair would wear?
Perhaps this is the label's bid for a debut on the show. Or maybe, like their contemporaries, the slyly sexy, uptown brats crawled under their skin.
