Under the Big Top S/S 08
I noticed this while watching the Lanvin video on Style.com. The colors, beads, feathers, shapes, flowers and ruffles that have been shown make me think of an old time carnival or circus....see what you make of this.

I love this! A little bit of kitsch mixed with a whole lot of couture. That last dress in post #1 just screams "cotton candy"!

Not to mention I am a bit obsessed with circus culture after having just read Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen (highly recommended btw).

Great eye Spike.

Even Ann Demeulemeester seems to have touched on this.
