Toile La La F/W 2014 RTW Romantic Souls Fashion Show: The Review.

Ever-changing atmospheric displays, gardening, the music of George Frideric Handel, Dutch Golden Age paintings, laborers, and dreamers - all served as inspiration for the Toile La La F/W 2014 RTW Romantic Souls Fashion Collection, presented in the Tres Petit Trianon Flower Garden July 27 2013.  Investigate collection concepts, view the show, learn about the fragrance, and see behind the scenes details here.

Emphasis is placed upon convertible or reversible garments - coats, jackets, and smocks designed to be worn forward or backward - and either over or under a wrap-and-tie skirt, or over cropped and flared trousers, or a 3/4 sleeve cropped Tuta.  There's a convertible hat to be worn on the head or carried as a tote.  Details such as a funnel neckline, a bateau neckline, and dolman sleeves lend interest to the simple cuts.  Among the shades of blue, grey, and white - roses and rustic toiles appear.  Gold and silver gleam in closures inpired by regimental buttons, or in punk-ish jumbo safety pins.  Other accessories include belts inspired by the chatelaine and the obi sash - ruffs - 18th-century hanging pockets - Beehive Bonnet turbans - detachable lace cape-collars - cross-body mail satchels - and a large mother-of-pearl Full Moon brooch.
