Tonight's was a fun show, built around the idea of magic and making the most of her father Pierre Le-Tan's whimsical artwork. The models emerged from a giant top hat that he drew for the occasion, and his illustrations of playing cards and bunny rabbits featured on her clothes. The cards were especially charming on a fitted long-sleeved sheath.
Le-Tan hasn't moved completely away from the Lolita-isms she tends to favor (see the angora cardigan and mini-crini), and the way she embraced the Playboy Bunny won't appeal to every woman. But elsewhere the workmanship looked finer here than it has in the past. There was a new sophistication to a puff-sleeved, "abracadabra"-embroidered blouse worn with a ruched-waist, below-the-knee skirt. If you want to stack the deck in your favor for a fun night on the town, we suggest her velvet tuxedo and embroidered Queen of Hearts bustier.
