this morning i got to see some of my favorite bloggers and my new favorite human, nicolas degennes - creator of givenchy's spring/summer 2009 line - at a breakfast to celebrate the launch of the aforementioned line.
this line is all about loud color. degennes says, "i saw india as a bombardment of colours...it was the imagery that really grabbed me -- bollywood and its palettes of colours burst with beams of light."
see it all here. my early favorites? the magic kajal (intense kohl eye pencil) and precious sari (glitter eyeshadow at left).
spoiler alert: degennes spilled that the fall/winter 2009 line will be inspired by 1800th century romanticism - an interesting follow-up to an india-laced line, hrm?
