While I do not think that the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 09 show was either genius or inventive, I very much appreciated it. The overall gist of the collection is very much in line with my thinking–I adore wearable references to the 80s and short a-line dresses with structured tops are pretty much my uniform. I also have a crush on a certain black bag that went down the runway. There is something about a chic, black bag that feels grown-up and powerful to me. Probably because I’ve always imagined myself as an adult toting a black briefcase to work. This bag is totally luxe, without all of the logo hoopla that adorns so many bags these days. It is unique enough to be discernable without being over the top. And finally, it can transition easily from day to night–a must for any fashionable New York adult.
