Neck ornaments from Albino F/W09

Isn’t it funny how this global recession brings out the absolute best from all designers? In other words; isn’t it funny how while people are encountering dwindling funds, designers are creating and sending out pieces with higher price tags? Just a thought. Recession-talk aside, it’s time for Albino D’Amato-talk. His F/W09 collection for his line Albino put a huge smile on my face. The clothes were impeccable; gorgeous coats, knotted skirts, ruffled sleeves, and a color palette which started off quite somber but morphed into these beautiful oddly-matched jewel tones. The highlights of Albino’s collection, pour moi, were the over-sized neck pieces (shown below).  These are statement pieces; takes me back to Vera and Dries. The perfect touch of chic brilliance to an already powerful look.

  1. Your introduction was entertaining, but it’s so true how designers continue to have high price tags. I love Vera Wang and Albino necklaces!

  2. These necklaces are so bold and fabulous – awesome post!


  3. That really is ironic that you get the best out of designers during darker times, I guess they’re jsut trying to appeal to the poeople that actually wear the clothes or just hoping that their haute couture clients by get intrested in some of the ready-to-wear looks…
    For some reason I know either Dior or Lanvin will do something really great this season! I haven’t got to see the Albino show yet, but I’m just dying to now!
