"Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise" Valentino

Sunday, February 20, 2011


Once upon a time (a season ago), in the fairy kingdom of Paris, Marc Jacobs surprised everyone with a total China-inspired Louis Vuitton collection, not at all in the mood of the season.

As always, he was early. The same collection nowadays would have been just unsurprising, because Fashion this winter seems to have been affected by a new wave of Orientalism.

The Far-East was everywhere on New York runways: from models to clothes going through accessories, everything screamed "East!".

- The Row: Russia

- Oscar de la Renta: Mongolia

- Ralph Lauren: China

- Jonathan Saunders: Japan
