Ah, fashion. My great love. My escape from the quotidien.
You’ve been overlooked recently what with some terrific music opportunities and my attentions turned to whether full-belly or demi-belly maternity jeans are the most snug and offer maximum coverage – rather than what’s exciting and progressive.
The collection featured a muted and elegant palette of ivory, my absolute favourite colour taupe, mushroom and navy. There were dirndl skirts and a more voluminous take on the Chanel bouclé two-piece suit we all know and love (AND REALLY WANT BUT WILL NEVER HAVE) with a classic fitted jacket and over-sized elliptical sleeves. Models, including Edie Campbell and Lindsey Wixson, wore stunning dresses pared with billowing capes twinkling with rhinestones and some had sleeves embellished with feathered bees and applique petals.
For me, the show stopper was worn by Kendall Jenner, a floor-length sculptural black gown with elegant lace layers that showcased the shoulders.
Accessories included wooden-soled wedges, a nod to the surrounding eco-structure, and hair beautifully rolled into a style that was, apparently, inspired by a Picasso sculpture. Makeup was dramatic with double liner in an elaborate shape.
Glittering, enduring and classy.
A world away from maternity jeans, but comfort must prevail. For now…
