Privy to Prive

Since I've been looking at all the collections that designers have issued for Spring/Summer '09, I thought it might be fun to look at the ultra expensive and glamorous world of couture for all you uber-rich people. Seeing as how every outfit that comes down the couture runway has a price tag between $50 000 - $100 000 plus, it is no wonder that there are only 200 customers in the world. The couture shows wrapped up last month, it's still the perfect present to buy your Valentine if you're a billionaire. For those who have the cash for couture, you cannot go wrong with the Armani Prive collection. Even though Armani kept most of the black and white, there was still a pungent of purples, yellows and other vibrant colours that made the collection magnificent. I love the flapper, Asia-inspired look for his collection. I love the patterns that look like walking pieces of art that moved effortlessly. I love the sharp tailoring of the jackets and the slight ruffle on the trim of the skirts. Armani is definitely a man that knows how to take old school Hollywood, but make it modern for today. These clothes would fit nicely with any high class socialite that still exists in the world. The dresses in the end were a definite nod to the red carpet and specifically the Oscars. Even though Armani put the occasional avant garde, for him it's about taking over the crown of the red carpet king from the retired Valentino. I especially loved the silver sparkly dress at the end because it is the type of dress you can see someone like Cate Blanchett or Angelina Jolie wearing with ease.
