It's BaAaaaAack..........

for Spring 2012.  Peplum.  I don't know about the rest of you but I happen to be a huge fan.  I first began my love affair with peplum as a young girl watching Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty flit across a Disney screen in those tiny fitted dresses whose fabric flowed into a slight poof just below the waist.  The look is a classic one adept at showcasing a woman's softer feminine side using structure and detail in a deliberate manner.

Below I have compiled a short photo list of some of my favorite peplum moments in fashion history.

How Alice see's India

This short video clip stands to reason how Chanel continues to be one of the only long term Fashion Houses that understands the value of imagery and the overall impact of the visual experience.  

It's as though Alice in Wonderland has taken a ride on the Darjeeling Express.
