Any major highlights (or disappointments) of the season? I disliked how incoherent a collection Chanel was, but that wonderful set, Lola Nicon arriving as the bride horseback and Linda Ronstadt's Be My Baby playing just felt so magical and so appropriate for a couture collection. For some unknown reason, I didn't immediately loathe Christian Dior upon first look and Valentino felt like a total departure from previous collections. There was also a backless dress from Schiaprelli's collection which was gold and black zebra print which I thought was utterly stunning. Not the worst couture season, all things considered.
