nina ricci, pre-fall 2012 collection

{via: style.com}

I apologize for the double post on Nina Ricci, especially because it is likely your blog feeds are inundated with photos of her pre-fall collection… but I couldn’t resist. The pink chiffon, leopard elements, and military accents wiled me– and I had no choice in the matter, really. Which look is your favorite?

christian dior spring 2012

After what seems like years of either androgynous or bohemian-inspired looks ruling la monde du mode, it seems as though ladylike elegance is packing a strong punch for Spring 2012. This is particularly exemplified in Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 RTW Collection, which seemed to go back to its classic origins (doubtless in part due to the Galliano controversy earlier this year.) Regardless, I have always been a huge fan of Dior’s ability to create classy and timeless pieces that incorporate modern elements in shape and construction (cases in point: the leather skirts, and sheer blouses.) And it certainly doesn’t hurt that wearing Christian Dior feels like stepping closer to channelling Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco…. Enjoy!
