"An Angel Passing By", Christian Lacroix spring 2008 couture collection is a delightful mix of exuberant designs, all accessorized with ombre-tinted tights. Christian Lacroix delights as usual with his spring/summer 2008 couture collection presented on 22nd of January, 2008. Each and every look of this collection, named "An Angel Passing By", is unique, exuberant and very elaborate in an apparently effortless way.
The designer works with his favorite references: influences from the eighteenth century, fin de siÃ¨cle Paris and gypsy costume all translated into a lively mix of materials, colors, embellishments with an incredible sense of detail.
Can't help but marveling at each outfit: layers of lace, chiffon tiers, puffed taffeta, ribbons, sparkling embroidery and appliquÃ© are completed by ombre pink, blue or gray tights and by gingham shoes with cheerful bows.
