Trend alert: extravagance
Excess. Lavish details. Crystal, lace, finery. Understated it is not. Old world & celebratory it is. The time of tzars & princesses is returning.
A quick walk through the new flagship Restoration Hardware store reveals the trend--velvet, chandeliers, & gilt mirrors are the order of the day.
In the designer world. we see it in the new Alta Moda line from Dolce & Gabbana--fur, tiaras, jewels, & lace...
And in the extravagant line of Paolo Sebastian...
But what's in it for the average budget-bound shopper? A few small extravagances--dramatic colors, rose prints, lace, & fine fabrics--are appearing in everyday stores...
At first sight, the trend scared me a bit--excess, beyond my means--but now I think maybe we're due for a return to grandeur & finery. We've dressed down for years; maybe it's time to dress up.
