I keep holding my breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop on Spring ’09 fashion, waiting for something so fabulous, so wondrous, so knock-out-of-this-world, for just anything to happen, and the Paris shows have, almost, come to the rescue. It’s been, unfortunatly, more of the blah, blah, blah in many ways for this season. But there are a few shining stars. Of note, Balmain’s rock-chic jackets and couture-curve shoulders, Sonia Rykiel’s rose-strewn 40th, and Vivenne Westwood’s madcap, wild-child ways. Check them out.
