It's that time of the year again - the Barneys New York warehouse sale in Los Angeles... (Remember the Marni heels I bought there last winter?) This time, I went for two dresses, both blue and both casual numbers by Lanvin with exquisite details.
The first one is an ankle-length cotton dress, in a bright and unusual cobalt blue that my pictures sadly betray. I love its delicate frayed silk trimmings - also found along the long slit on the left side of the dress. They're really the Lanvin touch on what could otherwise be a very standard item. I imagine wearing it to the beach or to dinner parties, with flip flops or with a fine piece of jewelry such a baroque pearls.
The second one is a denim dress from the Lanvin and Acne jeans collaboration (amusingly named Lanvin [Hearts] Acne): strapless, with a pencil-skirt shape from the waist down, it features delicate pleats on the hips and the breasts. I find it versatile, very sleek yet not generic at all. Marked down from $820 to, believe it or not, $120.
