Winged inspiration

Butterflies... the little critters that flit and flutter throughout the garden like marionettes dancing in the air.  Personally they freak me out just a little and the thought of going through the butterfly enclosure at the zoo is totally out of bounds for me.  But it looks like all things nature, winged and fragile are getting an outing in these images below.

Speaking of butterfly enclosures, today in Paris, Chanel is scheduled to show their Haute Couture show inside the Grand Palais - if ever there was a building that resembles an enclosure or an aviary, the interior of this glorious classical structure is one.  Makes you wonder what the 'New Vintage' collection will be channeling on the catwalk hey?

Giambattista Valli remains one of my favourite couture shows. I saw the Chanel collection and as it's happened lately with Lagerfeld's collections, I need time to view it again and again to form an opinion.
