A delicate touch

One of the most memorable images to come from the Spring-Summer 2012 collections was that of models in bon-bon-coloured lace dresses perched daintily on white horses, spinning round and around on the Louis Vuitton carousel. It was a lasting vision of prettiness that defines one of the key trends this season: the sweet innocence of lace.

On style, she rules

I saw Liv Tyler in a cool animal top and then saw that others are wearing similar tops so it seems to be a trend. Where should I buy one?

Back to the couture

The departure of the disgraced John Galliano and a rocky team effort in the Christian Dior studios to fill the void caused by his absence may have reignited the recurring fears for the future of haute couture. Remarkably, the catwalk shows of autumn couture collection closed in Paris last week in an upbeat mood.
