Yves Saint Laurent Spring Collection
In the fashion industry, there are a lot of famous fashion brands and they been in the fashion industry for quite some time. Such as Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Alexander Mcqueen, Dior and of course Yves Saint Laurent; which I am always a big fan of the brand. YSL is one of the fashion brands that still maintain their style and quality. It is always been elegant and ladylike; with each season, YSL always surprise us by using new material and add some new fashion element that are ladylike.
Just like the current 2013 spring season, YSL use a lot of ruffle, organza, bow and chiffon in dresses and blouses. This element brings a spark to the collection. All this dresses and blouses are semi-see through, the trick with see through fabric is they can cover the odd spot (such as having a bigger waist), which the fabric will make your body proportion looks longer and slimmer.
Not to mention, the accessory collection are ladylike but yet playful; the dark oversize hat that cover quarter of the face create a magical illusion, it actually made the actual size of the head seems smaller. Also, long tassel necklace teams with bohemian dresses, tassel with black wide belt works great together, is not just chic but also bold.
Move along, the spring collection is not entirely girly, but it had inspires by the boyish style. The blazer are using straight shoulder (by apply a thin shoulder pat); this brings a confidence and independent personality into the outfit. Last but not least, jackets are inspired by the western cowboy style; with some half cut packet and some leather piece as the major element. Obvious is a drama series and we expected to see more the summer collection with the same spirit.
If you notice, I always mention the word "elegant", and here I ask, what’s elegant to you? I could not express my strong emotion enough to people who gives an odd Fashion Comment of “a girl that wear a cheetah coat with black over knee boot and bright red lipstick” is elegant; Very interesting. Well, that doesn't seem elegant to me, but surely is a “wild one”.
