Cute and fresh however missing what I love most about Missoni and what they are most famous for, the printed knits. The green tunic with the lace yoke reminds me of Stella McCartney Fall 2009 collection a bit.

Great ads! I especially love the one with oysters because I love oysters. The handbags and shoes showcased in these ads are very Rock'n'Roll, something Choo isn't so well known for. Maybe the new look is an attempt to capture the young buyers who shop at HM?
The clothing is very glam rock and a first attempt at ready to wear for Choo. I have seen the gray suede one shoulder dress and it looks and feels great. I wonder how the other clothing items measure up. The shoes all together look good but individually they are a bit lackluster. I expected more from Jimmy Choo.
Gianni Versace was an innovator of 80's fashion and one of the top designers up until his untimely death in 1997. His ad campaigns during the 80's empowered women and allowed them to appear sexy and sophisticated at the same time. From flirty mini dresses to the power shoulder suit, Versace made it all.
The fabulous leather and houndstooth jacket, modeled above by Janice Dickinson in 1983, just came into Vintagecouture.com. Make sure to visit the site as it will be up for sale very soon! images from TFS
