Lanvin Spring 2008
This was a brilliant collection which stayed away from the floaty, floral dresses we have seen this season. It included toga gowns, tunic dresses covered in feathers, flapper-style dress, ruffled satin cocktail dresses and satin trousers with a dinner jacket.
It started off with dark muted colours, then exploded with colour.
Collette Dinnigan Spring 2008
This was a great mixture of fabulous party dresses.
They ranged from short and sassy to full length and fabulous, in bright colours and a range of fabrics, metallics, delicate lace, abstract silk florals, and bold solids.
The one-shoulder dress featured heavily, as did dresses that were nipped in to accentuate the waist. There were also sixties-style shifts and baby dolls. Many necklines and waists were embellished with silvery sequins or crystals.
Louis Vuitton Spring 2008
Louis Vuitton's spring collection, designed by Marc Jacobs, was very colorful.
The collection had nurses' uniforms, puffy skirts, vests layered over blouses, arm-length gloves, and cardigans.
For me the most interesting part of this collection were the bags. They ranged in different shapes from extra large sacks to clutches, but all were bright with colour and had colour-bleeding and graduations which we have see a lot this season.
