The deliciously talented Lu sisters have released a new fall collection. Last season's collection was based on spring flowers. Their fall line is based on feathers. Lots and lots of feathers.
The Lus are well known for their exquisite primwork, their hand-drawn designs, and their sense of whimsy. This latest offering is no exception. Rich colors permeate the offerings. Deep vibrant reds and purples. Electric yellows. The Parakeet above (300L$) is eyecatching with its beads and froufrou prim feathered epaulets.
The famous Alt sisters - I mean Lu sisters - tend to design toward the elegant, and these ball gowns are just over the top. The Gilded Peach (350L$) is a classic with sequins and a side skirt. The Magpie (600L$) is a beautifully understated draped black and white gown with multiple flexi skirts and a long train. The waist is banded with sculpted draped fabric and the bodice is intertwined black and white textured fabric. Luscious! The texture on the Sequin Finch gown (300L$) is so deep and rich as to be mesmerizing. Lovely blues and golds adorn the high waisted skirt, and poofy sleeves and a sparkly brooch keep it in place.
