The feel of lightness in this dress drew the sparkle back in my eyes at the first moment. It is a Gianfranco Ferré vintage dress – a friend in Paris that modeled for brands like Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent back in the 90’s sold it to me with the label still on- that only seems to have been made for a fairy tale (sure would fit on Disney) . It is completely weightless and everytime you walk with it, the sheer exposed layers show also its inside tube structure.
Pieces like this is the reason I’m always collecting vintage things. The materials were everytime so well thought and creativeness was like today, incredible.
I wanted to transmit this lightness with a Louis Vuitton inspiration of their spring 12 collection. Clearly stated that I really liked that entire collection and show, because I searched everywhere I went until I found these perfect shoes.

ps. It is almost time to go back home to Paris. Milano Fashion week has been extraordinary!
