Take a look at what we have in store for Spring/Summer 2011. Don't you love the shock of the new?
A summary of the new season, here’s your sneak peek of the new arrivals for Spring/Summer 2011.
Take a leaf out of German Vogue (the May issue) and let one of the new Lanvin ‘Feuilles’ transform your little black dress. See variations of these crystal stemmed beauties in brooches and chiffon strung necklaces in store.
Crystal-stemmed, larger than life leaf brooches, with leaf-print espadrille, and cotton cabas tote in background.
Paco Rabanne, the label that rocketed into fashion history in the 1960s with its metal mosaic dresses, is returning to the fashion present with madcap Indian designer Manish Arora at the creative helm. The first collection will hit the runway in 2012, but ‘til that time, lovers of Paco’s structural aesthetic (yes, he did train as an architect) will be thrilled to hear that ‘Le 69’ chain mail and disc bag has been re-editioned in a range of luxe contemporary leathers and metals. Christine covets the stainless steel, but we also love it in vegetal leather and nubuck….all exclusive to Christine in Australia.
Anya’s chic shagreen ‘Marano’ clutch that the Duchess of Cambridge simply can’t live without.
The House of Goossens is one of many artisan ateliers who have long supplied Chanel and now been absorbed into its stable (Maison Michel is another). We adore the Byzantine themed jewelled cross pendants and freshwater pearl tassels…all exclusive to Christine in this country.
We adore his hot pink shantung silk ‘Hutton’ dress, his structured cocktail sheaths and the ‘Christine’ – a fluid evening jacket shimmering in tiny mother-of-pearl paillettes, designed exclusively for madame (pictured second from right).
