Because I love faerie tales...

The Vivienne Westwood Red Label show reminded me of faerie tales. I think it's partly the setting and partly the looks that came through it. The hats and dresses remind me of the faerie tale's heroine and some of the other looks remind me of what a modern, fashion-conscious faerie might wear. My attachment to this collection might be completely esoteric, but you have to admit the clothes are lovely!

You are so unbelievably right - the looks are so ethereal, whimsical, and adorable; definitely what you could imagine a modern-day faerie donning! :)

Definitely getting a fairy tale vibe from this! How enchanting! I love this theme of this... much more so than Viv's other show, even though I'm a Westwood fan. This definitely is classy, girly and speaks to me more!

Couture Carrie said...

Agreed, darling! Such fun dresses!

My goodness, what an eclectic collection. The first has this seafaring, cruise line-esque feel. I especially like the draping, heather-gray dress... almost grecian like, classic and absolutely stunning.

great post (:
