Le Croc

Spring 2012 Couture’s three-dimensional florals were met with quite the contrast in trends. Translucent pleats, pencil skirts, peplum waist lines and delicate cuts were paired with none other than fierce crocodile in jet black and sand. Collections like Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy (not pictured) and Armani Privé (not pictured) embraced the material, presenting it in its most ladylike rendition. Whereas in other seasons, we’ve seen crocodile coated on accessories like shoes and bags, today’s edition gives us  practical suit pieces for the modern woman. A vicious animal at its most polished and proper – just steer clear of the real deal!

Shades of Pale

by Kaylee Pare

Now that I’m in a warm climate for the holidays, I can finally look through Spring 2012 collections without wanting to pick up and leave Canada forever. The delicate floral patterns, the pale colors and all of those shorts hems sure are something. Pastels this year were anything but boring, and definitely gave new meaning to subdued coloring. Yummy shades in relaxed but tailored silhouettes…so dreamy.

Casual Mondays

by Kaylee Pare

I’ve been waiting for a good time to post this shocking image ever since it was taken after the MET Gala in May. I finally decided that it’s the perfect pick-me-up on a dreary, reluctant Monday. This gown screams Givenchy, and is so perfectly juxtaposed with the gritty streets of New York in this picture – we should all bring ourselves to spend a few hours in a gown on a casual day at some point in our lives (why not?).
