fashion herald said...

love this on home goods or accessories, but for clothing not for me!

Laroux said...

Karl Lagerfeld is starting to go a bit nuts with laser cut fabrics, Chanel AND Fendi, maybe a bit of an overkill? But I really don't care if it is, cos I LOVE those latice patterns.

Danz said...

Hey CC! I love how the lattice cut-outs can either be delicate and feminine or sexy and edgy. I think all the looks you picked are fantastic but my favourites are the black cut-out items...so hot!
Also, thanks so much for the wonderful comment you left about my illustrations. I really appreciate it and I'm glad you like them.
Hope you had a lovely weekend dear. Take care :)

CarmenSinCity said...

I love the Cristian Lacroix boddice. It's beautiful!

issa said...

lattice!! completely fierce.

Hemaly said...

The YSL shoes are perfect!

lisa said...

Laser-cut lace is lovely, but somehow I feel like compared to real hand-knit lace like the stuff that showed up in Prada's A/W '08 collection it's a bit lacking. :)

MISS GLITZY said...

Awesome selection! Love this post, xoxox : MG

Make Do Style said...

The YSL shoes are my fave - I want!!

Camille said...

Chanel, YSL, and Oscar de la Renta have outdone themselves. I'm in love.

Gaya said...

Me encantan las prendas y los accesorios tan elaborados, sobre todo el bolso troquelado. Un beso

Alecca Rox said...

Lisa said...

the stella is INSANE.

oniomania said...

The laser cut trays are so surreal. Kind of freaks me out.

rossovelvet said...

Not much into this trend but I LOOOOVE what Kriemler does with it for Akris... and I like it on details, like belts or shoes....

Nice post anyway !! :D

Ingrid The Kids Meal said...

wow! parece que la mayoria ahora tiene perforaciones en forma de figuras!! jeje, ame el bodysuit de Miu Miu! ¡lo mejor! y al final ya ni vi Changeling! jee

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

It's like sci-fi eyelet! A whole - and in some cases, brave - new world! You are one hard workin' fashionista! Always fun to see what's going on over here with you.

Emily said...

i'd love to run around the beach in some of these floaty dresses during the summer. they're all so beautifully romantic! xo

Aren said...

Hi Carrie,

This collection is INSANE. I love them all.

The Wunderkind is one of my personal favourites though, it clings to the model perfectly and is well formed!

Jeremy Laing's is seamless. The attire is fitted to perfection.

I wasn't able to see any of the other pictures though, they wouldn't download. My Mac is having some glitches lately!

Nonetheless, great post!

Gracinha said...

Allison said...

Ohh, CC that Christian Lacroix is to DIE for.

These designers have just outdone themselves. Absolutely perfect selection, darling!

Secretista said...

Nina (femme rationale) said...

why am i always just gawking at the shoes and ignoring everything else? your posts always make me wanna go out and shop...bad bad bad. haha and it's amazing what laser and die-cuts can do w/fabric these days.

Meg said...

I like the lattice-type shoes. So lovely.

Fifi Flowers said...

I soooooooooooooo ADORE this post... I don't think I would turn many of these items away... if the designers would like to send them to me... I'm READY!
And I agree with your comment "Christian Lacroix latticed bodice detail - CC swoons!"

dtailOriented said...

Trixy Tran said...

I love that purple dress by Modernist. Somehow, it makes me think of Dior (:

Lil Midget said...

Great post!!

Loving that black and red bag :D

xx

Couture Allure Vintage Fashion said...

That green purse is exquisite!

Anika said...

This is a tricky trend, only cos it's so easy to do wrong. I've seen way to many high street versions that look cheap. But loving your picks, esp. the Yves Saint Laurent, Wunderkind, Modernist and the Midsummer Light.

Mmmmm :)

Thanks bella!

Terence Sambo said...

P.S the first pic reminds me sooo much of the Givenchy HC SS05 collection, which is my all time fav. :)
