Underwater world

I read that after the Alexander McQuenn's fashion show in Paris for the Spring/Summer season 2012, the chief editor of French „Vogue”, Emmanuelle Alt, fell down on her knees in front of the fashion designer Sarah Burton and in the presence of 200-person public said „Thank you”. I don't know whether it is possible to find a better proof that the collection became the hit of the Paris Fashion Week held one month ago:)
The inspiration to create the collection was the very nature and in particular, the shells, crustaceans and seaweeds. The dresses which consisted of cascades of flounces resembled the interior of pearl or streams of water and the sophisticated laces brought to mind the coral reefs.
There is no doubt that the water theme shall be fashionable during the coming summer. At last, also Karl Lagerfeld is of similar opinion as Burton; his models were showing the clothes during the Chanel fashion show imitating the underwater world. I am curious how this trend will appear in the clothes and accessories in summer collections of big stores?
Podobno po paryskim pokazie Alexandra McQuenna na sezon wiosna/lato 2012 redaktor naczelna francuskiego „Vogue”, Emmanuelle Alt, padła na kolana przed projektantką Sarah Burton i w obecności 200-osobowej publiki powiedziała „Dziękuję”.  Nie wiem, czy można znaleźć lepszy dowód na to, że kolekcja stała się hitem odbytego przed miesiącem Paris Fashion Week:)
Inspiracją do stworzenia kolekcji była natura, a konkretnie muszle, ukwiały, skorupiaki i wodorosty. Suknie składające się z kaskad falban przypominają wnętrze perły lub strumienie wody, a misterne koronki przywodzą na myśl rafy koralowe.
Nie ma wątpliwości, że temat wodny będzie modny najbliższego lata. W końcu podobnego zdania jak Burton jest też Karl Lagerfeld, u którego modelki na pokazie Chanel chodziły po wybiegu imitującym podwodny świat. Ciekawe tylko jak ten trend przełoży się na ubrania i dodatki w wiosennych kolekcjach seciówek?
