The Antonio Berardi is lovely! One of the few non-disgusting pieces of this trend.

This is one of those trends that I really just have a hard time wrapping my head around, velvet is such an unpleasant fabric - it feels nice but it just looks so bad most of the time. I've been putting together a compilation of all the red velvet looks this season and 9 out of 10 of them just look tacky to me.

Perhaps it is because velvet just reminds me of the old couch my parents had in the basement when I was growing up

I really enjoyed the velvet at Giorgio Armani yesterday. There was black and red velvet, but I really responded to the green velvet, stunning





I wonder where this trend comes from. Velvet is usually associated with Medieval times, a time of stand-still and no social, economic or cultural growth. But it was also very prevelant in the 16th and 17th century, which were times of economic growth and cultural development. I sense a conflict there....sound familiar?

maybe it's just sort of opulent and over the top?

some sort of signifier for luxury? i know what you mean about the contradiction though dale...
i feel like i associate velvet more with sort of medieval fairs, and cheap hippy-wear or "goth" sort of rock and roll wannabees
