Every one knows how much I love and admire Malan Breton and how highly I think of him both as a human being and as a designer.
So it is not suprising that I was waiting like a child on xmas eve to see his show for A/W 08 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
I am so proud of Malan and I could no be happier for all his success.
His collection for automn/ winter 08 inspired by Catherine Deneuve films of the 60's such as "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg" and "Belle de Jour" was exquisite and although sober, had touches of colour and beauty that lent it the characteristic Malan Breton glamour, refinement and that deliciously retro ethos that we have come to expect from Malan.
I was incredibly surprised by the beauty of his tailored pieces and as usual, some of my favourite items were his beautiful pants. This man is making even better pants than Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney.
What I love most about Malan's clothes is that they would look good on a variety of figures and shapes and that they would be beautiful on a woman of any age. His clothes are instant classics.
So here are my favorite pieces from his collection:
I absolutely LOVED this coat. The tailoring was immaculate and the winter white is absolutely classic.
