Grecian Inspired Dresses

Culture of Couture Shoutout: Grecian Inspired Frocks

Gee, what a surprise, grecian inspired silhouettes cropped up for Summer 08. We can barely contain our excitement and shock at seeing this very avant garde shape emerge from some of the world's most high profile designers. Please designers, stop shocking us with your strange artsy ideas. Ohhhkay, they are quite pretty, a crowd pleaser at worst. Our network partner, Culture of Couture, gave props to the trend with a smattering of looks by Lanvin, Gucci, J.Mendel, and Alberta Ferretti. The color of the Gucci dress is to die for, seriously, but when we've checked out the Alberta Ferretti frock with chain detailing via ecommerce, we were suspicious of the way the chains drape. Feels a bit like the kind of dress that, well, makes your 'boobs look weird'. Sorry to be so crass, but we know you know what we mean. Check out Culture of Couture's hot little mock-up of this silhouette trend here.
