Peut-être Magazine Issue 4 is Out Now!

I know I have raved about Peut-être Magazine on this blog many times, but I cannot help but get increasingly excited and proud with every new issue we bring out, and Issue 4 is no exception. With exclusive behind the scene photos that include Tsumori Chisato, Issey Miyake, Iris Van Herpen, and most of all, Christian Dior (both the Pret-a-Porter and Couture collections - and at the Atelier itself), exclusive interviews with French chef Sylvain Sendra and artist Aron Wiesenfeld, this 300+ page magazine is simply a work of art. Available to view and order online, I suggest you run, don't walk:

Resort 2013: Christian Dior, Chanel & Lanvin

Christian Dior

This was my favourite collection of this blog post: for his last collection for Dior, Bill Gayten brought us classic, feminine shapes including full high-waisted belted skirts, sleeveless voluminous mini-dresses, peplums and pleated chiffon evening pieces. It was elegant and feminine, infused with some multi-colour floral prints and nude cat-eye shades, and I particularly liked the beautiful leather pieces in soft hues (especially that peplumed jacket - with the foldover effect):


I am always amazed at the number of looks showed at each Chanel collection, and also that only a handful make it to each post, creeper shoes for Chanel?


I am shocked to say these were the only looks I liked at Lanvin, with quite a few looks/pieces raising my brow (the 'al-foil' pieces in particular), but these sure are gorgeous:
