Three sisters that continue to amaze me. I would probably kill a man for some peices in this collection. I might even need to considering the price for some of those pictures reaches over $1,000.
My two faves are probably the Kiki Velvet dress (first pic) and the Blair Bustier dress (last pic), so unique and their attention to detail is unlike any other designers in their feild.
Most of the collection can be pre-ordered for Aussies from Whistles, Pitbull Mansion or York Nior.

I know it is a bit of a cop out to post Lover spreads, we all know its great. But I really think Susien Chong and Nic Briand are just exceeding my expectatations and their own talent. They have come a long long way from the days of 1+1 and Altamont. This season has taken on the modern day goth, albeit the dark moody brood of romantic goth that Tallulah does so well. Think: 19th Century Vampire. Complete with long drapes, deep blood velvet, white romantic Victorian frills, capes and lace.

Think Gamma Phones, Sailors, smoking, Crooners, and “The War is Over” (yayyyy pash a sailor!)
I love this era, and I love love that it is making one hell of a comeback... though most people have not taken notice yet! Goodbye grunge and hello little Lady!
40s inspired looks out on the market:
Silks and satins
The resurgence of gloves (leather, lace, etc)
Hairpieces and headbands, particularly art-deco style with embellishments (ala Gossip Girl) like diamantes, feathers and jewels
Covering up with cap sleeves and longer lengths
Trench coats and structured jackets
Mary jane and stacked heels
Lace and lingerie (think WW2 Pin up girls and Dita Von Teese)
Capes and furs
Designers reflecting the 1940s glow: Woodford & Co, Country Road, Lucette, Natasha, Camilla & Marc, Zimmermann and Lisa Ho
I am buying up big on this trend, as it is classic, ladylike and luxxxxeeee

Rock on, Gaz!
And the cost is not the thing that is deterring me. I feel bad for the poor wabbits. Now don't get me wrong, I eat meat like it's going out of fashion-- but the touch of this luxurious coat reminds me of my poor late blind albino bunny, Fumper and I just do not know if I can do it or not.
My morals usually never get in the way of fashion (I would probably bite you if you picked up the last pair of CL’s on sale in my size) but I think I just may have to leave this one on the shelf... being all stunning and awesome!
