Balenciaga Spring/ Summer 2009 Collection

Sci-fi induced looks from Nicolas Ghesquière's Spring/ Summer collection for Balenciaga is rather spectacular. Not one to sucuumb to trends, Nicholas Ghesquière always paves his own way and delivers a new direction in fashion. This direction is a luxurious, futurist fantasy filled with fancy sporty boots.

I like these boots but can't quite figure out how you put them on.

Dries Van Noten Spring/ Summer 2009 Collection

Dries Van Noten's Spring/ Summer 2009 Collection is the kind of collection all women will look at and say to themselves.... 'I can see myself in that outfit.'

Dries Van Noten has found the harmony between inventive and commercially viable, which is where many of today's designers struggle. The collection is accessible and pragmatic and far from boring. It is simple, elegant and very wearable.

These are my favourite shoes and I will take the outfit too. I love the mix of elegant black and white colours.

Another favourite in black and white.

Absolutely beautiful. Very wearable too.

These are glamourous and would add that extra zing to a plain black outfit!

I just love strappy sandals.

Hussein Chalayan Spring/ Summer 2009

"It's about the speed in our lives and how it can only result in a crash," said Chalayan.

And rightly so, as most of his collection had prints, which included number plates, car handles, and fenders, which Chalayan explained were "taken from pictures of car graves."

I say you either love it or you hate it. I quite fancy the shoes more than the clothes as the clothes are the crash. What do you think?

Alberta Ferretti Spring/ Summer 2009

Alberta Ferretti's 2009 collection has her characteristic light touch with soft makeup tones. Although the collection was somewhat colourless, I like the feminine aspect of it and die hard fans will love it.

I love the simplicity of the shoes which retain that feminine look.

Celine Spring/ Summer 2009 Shoe Collection

As the weather sinks below 0 degrees and it gets dull, dark and depressing, Celine's Spring/ Summer 2009 Collection is here to cheer us up with fresh spring bright colours that let us know that it is not always going to be cold and grey.

'All things bright and beautiful......' really fresh and cheery!

These are my absolute favourite. They are going to be a hot trend this summer.

These are just so fabulous. Bring on the summer!!

I like the polynesian-tattoo prints on silk organza dresses from this collection with matching shoes.....give me them!!!

Giambattista Valli Spring/ Summer 2009 Shoe Collection

“It’s about a metamorphosis. There’s a big change going on in these times,” said designer Giambattista Valli.

That is how Giambattista Valli refered to the look for his Spring 2009 collection, shown on the runways of Paris. This collection is truly magnificent. It is very feminine and classic. Valli has a lot of fans which include; Victoria Beckham, Natalie Portman, Caroline Sieber and Emma Watson, to name but a few, and you can see why they love his creations.

So gorgeous. I love strappy sandals and these are just fabulous!

These are my favourite shoes. I will take the dress too.

Absolutely gorgeous. So feminine and girly.

I love this colour and it works with the black dress.
