Unwonted fashion

I'm not a fashionista nor a shopaholic. Although, I must admit that, with the right budget, I wouldn't mind becoming one. Until then I am a fashion voyeur, meaning that I enjoy looking at the trends from a distance. Lately fashion design has come up with some unexpected pieces that I am sharing with you with great pleasure:

 1. The bejeweled mosaic inspired dress from D&G.

I was very intrigued when I first saw the collection. Designers, Dolce and Gabbana, looked to the exquisite Venetian and Byzantine mosaics of the twelfth-century cathedral in the city of Monreale, a place of worship consecrated to Santa Maria Nuova. You can find more about the collection and complete pictures here. There are some exquisite red dresses there that I would like to wear once in a lifetime.

2. Rose embellished golden cage wedges from the same collection Dolce & Gabbana Fall / Winter 2014 Mosaic Women's Collection.

"I believe I can fly"... Haha! They look very theatrical but I wouldn't mind owning one pair even though I can't guarantee I would have the guts to ever wear them outside.

3. Juste un clue, Cartier.

I liked this as soon as I saw it on Garance's blog. I can tell you that Cartier has one with diamonds, too. And what was I telling you here about perfumes, that it's no fun buying them. Other girls think the same about bracelets. I, for one, wouldn't mind buying this for myself...

4. The hula hoop Chanel bag.

Wait! Don't jump to conclusions like I did the first time I saw this. Apparently,  the master behind Chanel, has an explanation: "It's for the beach" Lagerfeld told the Daily Telegraph post-show. "You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it." I bet you didn't think of it as remotely useful, didn't you?!

5. Bee-embroidered Alexander McQueen apiculturalist's hats with wide brims.

The hats looked strange to me in the presentation but on Sarah Jessica Parker, the hat is fantastic. I guess she can pull off any hat, can't she?! I saved the best for last, as always. You can view a full coverage of the collection from Vogue here.

What do you think? Is unwonted fashion unwanted? Would you wear any of these? The bracelet would be the first on my list.

A joy a day keeps the doctor away!
