Wearable Wednesday -Collette Dinnigan


In this show, our Collette professes to get a little edgy- the models pranced thru Blondie and Shirley Manson…….

Edgy is ‘Dinnigan’ for sheer. This is edgy like watching the Duchess of Cambridge eat ribs.

I like it, I do- but I picked ones that didn’t require the trench coat mostly for your viewing pleasure…..do forgive me.

Why be edgy when you can be lovely?

I want to pet these and see if they come with tiny fairy wings

I wonder if the booties are scratchy- well, one must suffer, right?

Something about this last one stands out…hmmm….

  1. The fourth one is gorgeous! Pastille from the Colette Handbook would be a great place to start if you wanted to produce an ‘inspired by’ dress… Hmmm, that’s another item in my ‘to sew’ que then!

  2. I like the cut and style of most, but some like the skirt are a bit silly.
    The last one reminds me of those awful 60’s clown paintings. The sad clown in face with those gathered necklines and sleeves…

    That last one was a hoot but the rest are nice. It is a challenge to make lace into something not to grandma-like but these look fresh, not edgy really but wearable with a lining or nude slip. The booties….how do they stay up and not slide down the foot? Thanks for sharing these beauties!

  4. colette is much lauded downunder ( But I still can`t afford her – dang it ) -she is only the australian designer to have showings in Paris. I wonder if that feather boa thingey was meant to be worn around the hips in the last picture ( or perhaps a black lacey sporran might be appropriate ).
