Lots of eye candy!
It`s 2 a.m. here, but I`m rushing right over!
GORGEOUS clothes and jewelry. The bags are nice but there were only one or two that really caught my eye and they're quite large. A lot of superb men's things as well. There was a great take on the cabat but in solid leather shown in the men's section.
Ooooh... off to peruse!
Okay, this was so worth staying up! Well, now I won`t be able to sleep anyways!
Seriously, I haven`t been this excited for quite a long time!
The subtle colors! Cement, Aurora, Rice, Oleander!
They`re doing suede now! Even in women`s flats! And men`s bags!
I need something in Cement!
The silk knots!
The tiaras (the price isn`t as steep as I expected it to be!)
I apologize for this messy post, but my brain only works partially now!
You're in luck, BM - NO Montaignes!!! I did like the frame bags, and the ones pleated like accordions, though...
^There`s the Ostrich Club Stripe Montaigne
C_24, aren't the clothes amazing? And I thought there were lots of nice things for the men, bags and clothes (ok, and the models were nice to look at too!!)
I missed that one - which page is it on?
^The clothes are totally amazing! But what I love about BV are the pieces not shown on the runway, that just happen to appear in the catalogue!
The Montaigne is on pg 84
You're right. BM, start saving. It goes for $7960 - but it does match ALL your puppies. Seriously! And it's gorgeous...
Yes, those ostrich Montaignes are lovely... but I have to say my heart didn't go flutter at them like it did with that hint of an animal print Montaigne for AW 08 we had last week sometime (thanks to mistikat and WWD)!
I'm also still taken with the kawai print bag although I have nothing that would even remotely go with it. I am, however, very happy to see that the kawai print is then also making its way onto a bunch of smaller accessories... perhaps the animal print Montaigne will have the same spin-offs?!?
What is wrong with me?! Here we JUST get the SS 08 catalogue and all I'm talking about is AW 08! But I'm just not a big pastel fan (I'm sooooo pale that I pretty much glow in the dark and pastels make me look kind of freaky - I still shudder 25 years later when I think of a lovely pale pink dress I made myself in high school and what I ended up looking like in it... ugh) so although I love to look at the beautiful pieces in the SS 08 catalogue, everything is just so darn pale that I can't for the life of me imagine ever being able to wear anything in it! But I would still like to caress them and smell them!
So I'm definitely saving for the animal print Montaigne and (now) the prospect of numerous matching small accessories... and hoping they actually make it into production!
OMGoodness - There are some great items.
Ooo - Faves!

Hey - only 12 things! That reminds my of a story my mom told me years ago. She said when I was young she gave me the Sears toy catalog and asked me to circle what I wanted for Christmas. She said I circled every single toy. I don't remember that.
jburgh - your Sears story is so cute! I agree about the pastels. Would have liked to see somewhat more vibrant colours but some of the neutrals are very lovely. It would be great to see some of these pieces IRL.
And interestingly, it looks as though some of the icon bags are shown in Ferro!
