Even though the title might have you believe that there will be a hike in the marked price of Louis Vuittons and Chanels and Guccis, I advice you breathe easy as inflation in the world of fashion implies something quite different these days. Not getting into the economics of it, inflation is actually doing wonders to the eye, it is this magnanimous fashion trend that reminds us of the regal culture with flowing gowns and yards of net and satin.
Spring magazines, shop windows, even runway shows were full of billowing mushroom-cloud dresses. This inflated silhouette has made a comeback thanks to the trend-setting Alber Elbaz at Lanvin. Doing away with the concept of space economy, I welcome these trends with open arms, I probably have to open them anyway, after all there is so much to welcome!
