Snowballs and snowflakes - its childsplay

Having just come off the mountain today, I now see what will be going up the mountain next Christmas. D&G went après ski, with bells on or should that be snowballs? Cable knit bustiers, reindeer printed chiffon, knitted snowflake leg warmers to over boots – mix in the knitted short shorts with a satin trim or the romper suit and that’s when you have a story.  Some maybe a little daring for the chill factor, but there will always someone who can wear this look, and wear it well. Damn it. The young European snow bunnies ready to party will instantly love this collection. Be aware and on the look out next Christmas.

From the mountains to the Highlands, the Scots are back and making an impression, especially in Milan. Roberto Cavalli used his diffusion line to show rock and roll kilts in his trade mark animal print as well as the tartan. This was a fun collection for the young or people with ridiculously long and slender legs. These kilts are not fort he faint hearted as they are barely skimming a pert bottom. Worn over the print tights (again thin pins are essential), with ruffled necks and sporrans not much flesh was exposed, give or take a wrist, but hemlines and the sheer shirts made sure youth was accounted for and the "more mature" lady had a long hard think before attempting to emulate. I am all for the confidence to outweigh but nothing worse than the delusion over the over 30's, as i said before watch out for the bunnies.
