Fashion Fades; Style is Eternal


Wednesday, August 31, 2011


A moment ago, a picture of Mila Kunis popped up on my computer from some silly link that I clicked on...while desperately trying to get inspiration for a write-up to post today.

Three things immediately ran through my mind:

1. Where is she going to have dressed like this during the day? Shouldn't it be night?

2. Not sure if I'm totally loving the double ankle straps of her ivory wait, or is it actually the double straps that elongate her legs instead of stub them down like a cigar?


Needless to say, after viewing this picture above, inspiration had come FLOODING in...and it all belongs to one word: Cacharel.

Cacharel is a French brand, which eventually evolved into an International hit. Starting back in 1958, Jean Bousquet came to Paris to launch a small, hand-crafted business, specializing in woman's pants. Today, Cacharel is sold in a worldwide network of large department stores including Barneys, Saks, Harvey Nicols, and Le Printemps.

"Coolness, romanticism, freedom, and avant-gardism are the key words of Cacharel, which keeps creating the silhouette of a self-confident woman, who loves to play with fashion, without being subjected to its diktats."

It wasn't until the inspiring picture of Mila Kunis in Cacharel appeared that I even knew what this name meant. I'm not saying that Cacharel is the new Chanel of RTW, because the Pre-collection Fall Winter 2011-2012 seriously looks like it was based off of the KKK...

...but, I was certainly impressed with the Resort 2011 collection and picked out a few of my favorites to show you and get your mind off that scary look shown above.

Cannot stress enough on how much I just love the playfulness that Cacharel brings to this collection. I would wear any of these pieces any day of the week. The clothes have so much utter confidence built into them, they seriously makes any woman draped in them appear to be rocking the ground she walks on.
