Sera Lilly FW'09 - review
Sera Lilly FW '09
The show opened to an orchestral and ethereal take on Nirvana’s ‘smells like teen spirit’ – which set the tone for the shows entirety: the ‘Impossible Princess’, youthful, rebellious and without the dramas of protocol and responsibility...
The comprehensive Autumn/Winter 2010 collection screamed opulence, packed with rich colours, luxe fabrics and a rebellious take on glamour and femininity.
Rich red and navy velvets, delicious caramel coloured fur and an abundance of sequins glittered their way down the runway adorning burnished gold jackets, full length pant suits and scalloped bodices.
Abstract florals reinforced the rebellious, feminine feel as did the models hair – teased, crimped and spun up into numerous bunches then lashed together with ribbon or multiple fascinators.
A trench coat in mock-croc brown leather introduced the crocodile theme which then featured throughout in belts, weekend bags and a stunning strapless and to the knee cocktail dress cinched at the waist.
The piece-de-résistance: a show stopping cream, grey and pale blue full length fur look coat worn only over black lace underwear draw numerous and slightly unsubtle wows from the audience... and deservedly so. .. It was Exquisite.
Sometimes in life, we all dream of escaping to a place of excessive pleasure, without drama and task... and this morning Sera Lilly gave her lucky show attendees just that.
