Winging It F/W 07.08
from style.com
Quote:
May 24, 2007 – The Fall collections found designers letting their imaginations take flight—literally. At Balmain, Christophe Decarnin struck a goth note with his bat-embellished sheath, but overall, things went winging in a more romantic direction. Translucent tails hung from Erin Fetherston's minidresses, while butterflies festooned the neck of a dress at Erdem. Benjamin Cho pursued a similar effect, though in his case he fashioned the delicate creatures out of industrial zippers. To Issa designer Daniella Helayel, "butterflies represent freedom. They're my favorite thing to observe." She's not kidding: Helayel just decorated her house with more than 100 framed butterflies she found on the Portobello Road. Eat your heart out, Damien Hirst.

at least it's better than the butterfly trend when I was in junior high mid 90's.

It's beautiful to me. I find birds, wings etc to be very calming.

yes me too,

I like how this seasons butterflies and stuff aren't made in a 'pretty' and 'cute' way, it's more dark and grown up which I like

Thanks for the link Hanne =), I love feathery lashes for editorial use

I've never been such a big fan of light and airy, but this is beautiful! I think that to counterpoint the 'sweetness' of the butterfly motif, it needs to be applied to something that looks more structured, or has a darker edge, rather than a full-on romantic look.

I prefer Alexander McQueen's use of butterflies.
