Great selection, very feminine trend, sophisticated as lace, but at the same time more edgy like the cut outs. Love Marchesa roses!

Kris said...

I love the second dress... the white with gold. So pretty!!

The Marchesa dress is Omg amazing. I think is probably my favorite post you have done because I wish I could wear literally every single one of these. Woa. The lace & the cut-outs on these are just beautiful.

North West London Girl said...

I love cut out designs, a hint of flesh underneath is so subtle. Your choices (as ever) are all beautiful, but the Pringle piece stands out the most for me. x

Katy Mary said...

Jean Paul Gaultier has got such a hot and beautiful style. And the shoes are amazing.

kpeach said...

super interesting-I love how it works on the shoes xx

lisa said...

Laser cut patterns are incredible! It's interesting to think that none of this would have been possible a few decades ago. Technological advancements in fashion ftw!

TERI REES WANG said...

The craftiness of cloth, that it can be manipulated my a very old fashion hand, as well as by the burning blade of a high tech light.

I think the sweet and simple apron dress up top is still my favorite.

Jen said...

i love these post! you posted some really great looks. all the detailing that goes into these lattice looks must take forever! :)

6roove said...

Petra Bellejambes said...

Love the Erdem. So happy to see something fresh and gorgeous from stalwart old Pringle too, and the Asos pink skirt either has my name or my hands all over it. Or both. Or breadcrumbs from lunch. O bother.

Great fresh edge to all of it.

Merci pout toute...

B a la Moda said...

Love these cut out in all garments. They are really pretty and delicate.

Marian said...

CC what a fabulous list of images to drool over! I cannot even imagine if it is possible for laser & lattice techniques to get even more intricate! The Marchesa dress is like an art piece, i would frame it up!
also the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture piece is dreamy!
I love the Sigerson M flats, they are gorge!

AX80 said...

Like cut-out dolls. There is a sense of delicacy throughout each design that makes each piece so fragile and so distinct. I especially love Ginta Lapina for Alberta Ferreti. A doll in doll's clothes.

Megan Cassidy said...

Gorgeous!! Such amazing detail
