I love looking through certain collections and seeing what inspires designers. For Alice Temperley’s A/W 2007 collection, she cites Paris in the early 1900’s with the arrival of Russian nobility, muses and Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes as inspiration. Which sounds so familiar, why is that? Then I realize that Jennine of The Coveted wrote about a documentary she saw on the Ballet Russes.
