My Barbie doll collection circa 1988 would have died for Herve Leger’s Fall 2008 runway collection…too bad I don’t have a Barbie doll bod to pull these off now. New York Fashion Week for Fall 2008 has come up with a few surprises so far, but Herve Leger by Max Azria is one of my new faves.
The show seemed to have a split personality, with one half of the dresses looking like they were the work of a Russian Suprematist artist (thank you Kasimir Malevich) and the other half looking like, well, Russian Crystal Barbie. It’s just fab…I love Slavic-inspired looks for fall, don’t you?
Nude makeup and feathered accents rounded out this unique show…I fully intend to buy a knock-off of the gold dress (sans fur shawl and train) and I’ve been really inspired to buy a feather necklace for some reason. Well done Herve!
Keep checking with Couture in the City all this week for Fashion Week coverage…we’ll get addicted so you don’t have to.
