For spring 2014, Hedi Slimane resurrected the lip motif that YSL himself favored, and Tom Ford and Stefano Pilati perfected. I really dislike the direction Slimane has taken the brand (so far, very one-note 90s grunge throwback…boring and ugly), his clothing has so far looked quite cheap in fabric and construction (at least from photos, it’s often hard to tell if the items are Saint Laurent or ASOS/Forever 21), and I hate that he changed the brand’s official name.
But I love lip prints, and these are fine, if very Diane von Furstenberg (particularly the first one).
When I met Lisa Eldridge a few weeks ago she was wearing the most amazing lip print dress. She was in town to tell us about the latest beauty innovation from Boots No 7, and I’ll fill you in on all the details later this week. For now let me just tell you that, as gorgeous as she is in her videos, she’s about a million times more gorgeous in real life – and just as gracious and charming as I’d hoped.
But back to the dress! Coolspotters tells me it’s by Prada Resort – which makes sense, it’s the same print as on a dinky little Prada handbag I was recently admiring.
Lips trend will keep prevail in this 2014. Not only the shirt but also the skirt will add this fashionable element. And if you love fashion, come and catch this trend!
