Christmas in Couture, Part 2

In a season of excess, why dress for less?

And why stop the decor at the mantle when your manteau can be magnificent, too?

If yesterday is any inspiration, keep the couture creativity going like a chic kid at Christmas.

Hermes FW11 Brick Red Caftan on
A cozy caftan - for opening gifts on Christmas morning. Technically, this isn't couture, but it's Hermès, so haute enough, no?
Giambattista Valli FW11 Couture Black and White Cocktail Set on
A little brunch at the Four Seasons, a little number that works in any of the four.
Giambattista Valli FW11 Couture Black and White Beaded Cocktail Dress on
Tea and crumpets at the Royal York - going old school in a new frock. That sparkle in the room? It's you.
A little stroll is in order, as day becomes dusk. JPG is a must.
Grab your favourite late-night movie partner and head to the home theatre for an evening of old black and white films. Dress for Rosalind and Katharine and Audrey.
Givenchy FW11 Couture White Gown - Back on
Don't turn your back on style just because everyone else can't stretch their imagination beyond yoga pants.

Merry Couture Christmas, my dears! May all your fashion dreams come true, this season!
