S/S 2006 Christian Lacroix RTW Runway Look 61 Silk Halter Dress
Christian Lacroix launched his Haute Couture house in 1987 and was instantly adored and revered. A ready-to-wear line soon followed along with perfumes and menswear. His collections are always an exotic, lavish affair and his inspirations spanned the decades with their eccentric, exotic glamour. His atelier closed in 2009. This dress is from the Spring 2006 collection and was shown on the runway. I love that for production they went with an even longer length. I love this dress and how it showcases LaCroix's love of drape and a bias cut. It has the added benefit of being a version of the dress that was shown on the runway that season in a slightly shorter length. It is suspended from the shoulders by tiny straps that are made from the same silk as the dress. Triangle cups cover the bust at the front with just a small hint of gathers to the fabric at the center and at the back it scoops down for a little extra skin to show. From there the dress falls in a sweeping bias cut that gradually widens out as it nears the hem. The skirt is made up of yards and yards of silk and there are little pleats set just under the bust to give it even more volume and movement. The whole dress has an easy and sexy scarf dress type of feel to it. I love the print that runs over the silk. It is set onto the fabric like a patchwork of design that should all clash but because the tones are all kept in a similar palette it all works perfectly. It is so simple but so very sexy.
