The Ballooning Trend


Summer of last year saw Cameron Diaz totting the fabulous and oh-so-happy Marni balloon bag in yellow, and its popularity seems to be riding just as high even now! And most designers seem to have caught onto the shape… look at the Balenciaga and Gucci bags from their spring 08 collections…

While I like it, its a great casual, day-bag, the only thing I find inconvenient about this shape is that anything you put in the bag seems to collect at the bottom and it takes major rummaging to find something! But then again, maybe its just me!

Bloom’ing Love


If you thought that influences of the ‘garden-variety’ were limited to the clothes in the Spring 2008 collections, you are wrong! The inevitable happened and the influence tipped over onto accessories as well.

Thankfully, not much of that happened because no matter what they say, I just don’t think lugging around a floral bag that costs $$$$ is fashionable! But some of these shoes were cute (ooh, Blahnik!!)…as were some of the pieces of jewellery that I saw, again, emphasis on ‘some’!!

A Spring Swirl


A heavy dose of petals, leaves, stems and all kinds of flowers were seen in collections of various designers in their Spring 2008 Ready-To-Wear collections! ‘Floral’ never looked so good before!

Some were seen on very structured outfits, some on not as much, sometimes the colors were a vibrant multi-color explosion of palette and then sometimes there was the dulled monochromatic play but still just as vibrant!

I have never been one for anything floral but how do you say no to Oscar De La Renta or Carolina Herrera? Have you seen those outfits?

Of course, not all that I saw was good (that Valentino outfit!!), but for now, lets only dwell on the fashionably divine.

A Costly Trend To Follow


Ok, so its been established that ‘leggings’ are all the rage and everyone is scampering to get the look! All major design houses have the look down, so have the young celebrities.. But, before you reach for your wallet to sport the look du jour, take a look at this one…

These futuristic looking, C-3PO golden leggings from Balenciaga come with a tag of $159,000.

Whew!

Heavy Metal!


Bipasha wore it at Femina’s special issue release. Fergie flaunted it on Grammys Red Carpet. What you ask? Its metallic baby! A look thats not for everyone, (remember Tanya Abrol? Scary!) but if you can carry it off, its a fabulos way to make a statement!
