40'S NIGHT OUT
The 1940s were a huge inspiration point for the Fall 2009 season, particularly in Milan and New York. Aside from the pantsuits mentioned in a previous post, there was a heavy dose of evening looks reminiscent of red carpet and cocktail looks from the era. Whether it's a a fur jacket over a dress or a gown with a clutch, these looks were finished with a 40's flair.
