Fashion Show

Initial reaction:

Pretty Baby's 18th birthday party.

Reminiscent of:

Irina Ionesco's seventies soft porn photographs of her daughter.

Double take:

Twisted pale-blue cotton crop top with a gold high-waisted paneled skirt. 

Bling ring:

Strips of diamanté trim hung from crisp shirting and the back of silk dresses like party streamers. 

Key change:

When the show suddenly switched gears from lace and silk, to slick red shiny vinyl. 

Unexpected details:

Thigh-high lace boots with a silver heel and thigh-high nude boots with a blood-red zip.

How they wore it:

Pearl bag straps slung over the shoulder but under shirts, and looped around the neck.

Soundtrack:

I Was An Eagle by Laura Marling

Pivotal moment:

A major shift in aesthetic for Thakoon. 

Most likely to:

Bring sexy booties back.
