When the Fall shows were unfolding — when Winter chills were every which where — I showed you a representative look from the Prada runway. And I can say that look was representative of the Fall collection, as it was demure with dramatic, keen lace detailing. As to whether you liked it or not, that was nearly a tie.
But I bet you'll like this racey, lacey look from the Balmain runway. Lace, a traditional yet complex fabric, has been given a serious reevaluation; this is not your grandma's lace. This is 2008 lace — modern, mixed, and multifaceted.
