Paris Fashion Week SS12 - Sara Vidas

The Sara Vidas show used a palette of very light pastel colours as well as grey and white. Featuring skirts and tousers with paper bag style, elasticated waistbands over white sheer panelled shirts with soft pastel shade spots and panels. 
The whole collection was very light and dreamy styled with queen of hearts lipstick, geisha spots and low, vintage looking shoes. Mixing a variety of different styles  sheer shirts with ruffled white bibs were tucked into baggy low slung jersey trousers. Following summer trends we saw a pleated sheer maxi in pastel rainbow over a white mini, all under an oversized cream knit jumper. The mixed styles in this collection made for a short but interesting show, the styling was also fantastic.

In a turn of controversy two of the models were glamourous older, grey haired ladies – walking around Paris you can see that many of the older generation have got much better dress sense than the youngsters!  This raised a question about vintage finds and the old ladies garments originally belonged to....
