February 27, 2007 Paris
What kept the collection from going over to the dark side were the kittenish accessories: fishnet underpinnings, lace stockings, and neon driving gloves (fingerless, natch) with talonlike press-on nails. And while it was executed with martial austerity, Lagerfeld didn┐t completely resist the temptation to embellish. A pair of sexy sheaths were a graphic mix of matte and shine. And tulle dresses (ranging from a blouson to a long halter to a sleeveless shift worn over skinny pants) were embroidered with sequins in patches. Nothing masculine about that.
