the king of couture: christian lacroix

I know not everyone will agree with the above statement, what with the existence of Mr. Lagerfeld and Mr. Galliano, but I stand by it.

Anyhooo, Lacroix was, by far the most fun of all the shows I got to see last year. I just feel like he has the concept down, and adds so much fun to it. It's not about the tweed suits for him, it's about the beauty of the fabrics and the embroidery, and keeping the artisans alive.

My fave looks from the show:

He always references Spanish/South of France costumes, and bullfighters, and always has the most fabulous stockings, but the other things change with the season. Looks number 1 and 4 are my absolute faves, as well as the tights in look 2.
