What a Mesh!

Mesh makes magic, on everything from pumps to prom dresses! The use of netting and tulle was particularly impressive at the Spring 2009 Couture!

Mesh shoes are great but could result in an interesting foot tan.

The thing about mesh, they are quite uncomfortable to wear eh?

Fashion Moment said...

Lacroix and Givenchy doing great job! I like Stella McCartney body suit, and Gaultier shoes.

Hi CC,

I adore! Cute JPG gloves. I want it.

The boots not only beautiful, but comfy according to me. Sam Edelman desings are so much good. Valentino costume is dazzling.

Great post!

P.S.: Now, I wear a sweater with mesh collar. Haha! :)

I love the mesh over the jacket. Gorgeous!

Dooder City said...

I think I say no to the mesh. It kind of reminds me of the 80's, however that little purse looked super cute.

Emily said...

what a seductive way to show a little skin.

Honestly, I think the Valentino skirt looks a bit like an old lady's table cloth, but I think the Jean Paul Gaultier jacket is great - I love your new header photo!

Nicole Linette said...

Mesh is done nicely in coutoure, though otherwise I think it's really unpractical.. but that's the thing with fashion sometimes, right? :)

UberOriginal said...

I'm not a fan of the whole mesh thing, Givenchy couture being an exception of course :) xx

Kelly said...

ooh, i would love some mesh gloves!

Anthea said...

Great title! I loved the couture! I loved the hats at chanel and the Gautier collection. There was no hint of a recession at the 09 couture!!

Anthea said...

Oh and Christian Dior was magnificent as always :)

TheGlamorousEccentric said...

Mesh is very cool indeed. There is something very subtle yet sexy about it. I also did a post showing that look from JPG (the pants with the mesh on the sides). Do you feel that the collectiosn have been different bc of the recession?

LJ said...

JPG's collection is lovely....
