In the Chanel show for spring and summer, Karl Lagerfeld showed a lot of star prints mixed with red and white stripes. It all had this american dream vibe. Stars are now a big trend - designers like Karen Walker included a dress with mini star print in her summer collection. When they are done in print, stars have a playfull - almost childish attitude.
At Yves Saint Laurent stars played a huge part, mostly in detailing and embellishment. They were on belts, in necklaces, as buttons, on shoes and so on. Matthew Williamson also included a necklace with stars in the Pucci line.
Now the fall/winter shows are over and though stars weren't as popular as in the spring shows, Giles included a navy dress with cut out stars. Definitely a new take on the star trend, and maybe a bit more raw and less youthful.
