CLOTHING:

CHRISTIAN LACROIX Vintage 1999 Runway Collection Floral Brocade Taffeta and Velvet Strapless Ball Gown, Size 6-8 – SOLD

Jaw-dropping drama.  This strapless ball gown is the epitome of high-fashion formal wear.  The chartreuse, turquoise, and magenta colored brocade bursting floral print is wildly placed throughout the piece, while the silhouette is daringly romantic.  The strapless boned bodice is a finely structured contrast to the billowing asymmetry of the bubbling tiers of the skirt, which are divided by black velvet strips.  Pleated black tulle fills the dress, and peeks below the raised front hemline, while the back has a slight train; a couture show-stopper front to back, head to toe.  Size 6-8 (French 40).  Priced at $699.

MUGLER Olive Green Long Blazer with Leather Patched Lapel, Size M

Thierry Mugler is an exclusive French fashion designer, and has recently handed the reins of his creative direction to Casey Cadwallader, who is determined to make a “laboratory of change”* in the world of French couture.  The brand “MUGLER will explore a progressive and diverse vision of femininity, acknowledging the dynamic reality of our daily lives and the clothes we need to elevate them. By broadening the offer into a complete daywear wardrobe, the MUGLER silhouette evolves to enable freedom and power through a new ease and fluidity.”*

This jacket does just that.  Its androgynous long-waited cut allows for an evolution of the female professional, and the color creates a bit of light relief to an otherwise serious piece of outerwear.  The rich olive tone is playful, yet muted, and will work with most neutral colors.  The hidden snap button front keeps the lines of this jacket sleek, while the drop pocket waist adds a bit of masculinity.  This piece is additionally made unique by the geometric tonal leather patches along the collar, with silver-tone metal trim following down the lapel.  Size M (French 40).  Priced at $499.
