Déjà Vu: Seeing Spots

The couture collections for Fall not only had me doing a déjà vu, but I was seeing spots – and stripes!

While zebra stripes and leopard spots have almost become as basic as black or red, it was interesting to see both come out of the same fashion jungle that is Couture Week!

Galliano showed a belted, tailored version of the zebra jacket for his ’50s classic couture show, while it was more mod and zippy at Armani Privé. In all honesty, I prefer the Dior over the flashy Armani….words I never thought I’d say.

Same goes for the spots, seen at both shows. I prefer Dior’s version – the spots are a nice contrast to the patent belt, proper pearls and ladylike hat with netting.
