Tops Tops Tops, and some skirts

Hello, here are some newly arrived pieces just in time for spring, which in Elwood has truly arrived!

This Jean-Paul Gaultier floral printed silk blouse is just gorgeous, and shows a softer and more romantic side to the designer known for cone bras and bondage gear.  Its great how this piece can be worn buttoned or unbuttoned, tucked in or out, with pants or skirts, truly a versatile piece! And the sheer factor allows for a multitude of underwear options too; black, lacy, nude, sporty, or none at all if you like!

Wow, anything by Olivier Theyskens give me a fashion high, he's just incredible. Here is a beautifully ephemeral piece designed while he was still at Rochas, and I refer to this one as a 'holding the hanger' piece, it is just so light! The layered front which shows just enough skin without being lude, the little keyhole at the back and the carefully controlled side drape all finished with the self fabric 'rosette' are just so right.

Anything Chanel is welcome here! This is lovely example of the ease with which Karl Lagerfeld designs a blouse. The silk crepe is pleated ever-so-carefully through the front, the hem, around the cuffs and the on the ruff style collar. And for that extra touch of glamour the buttons all have the obligatory CCs finished in the tiniest of crystals, so chic! Now SOLD.

Even after the man's fall from grace earlier this year what is left from John Galliano is the stunning and unmistakable work. The signature homage to the glamour of the 1930s and the bias cut, popularised in that decade can be seen in this delightful flounced hem silk skirt. Complete with self covered button fly and glitzy crystals as a balance on the opposite side it is quintessential Galliano, and for that we have respect. Now SOLD

And last but certainly not least is this subtle little skirt by none other than the kings of sexiness, Dolce & Gabbana. Of course it is intended to be worn as seen up top, a hipped pencil with that kicking flounce that shows the knee as you walk, but we've shown it inside out the expose that leopard print lining synonymous with the Italian duo's work, inside and out. If one should choose to wear it this way it takes on a more raw and deconstructed feel. Now SOLD
