(PARIS) Lacroix brought his signature bright prints and splashes of color, not to mention over-the-top gravity-defying hair adornments to his Spring 2008 collection. The sleek black dresses and trousers which opened the show were given jolts of bright yellow, while a '40s look prevailed with nipped-waist dresses and full skirts. A dizzying array of silhouettes were sent down the runway: form-fitting tube tops paired with flared skirts, loose, flowing beach cover-ups, and large shoulder-enhancing jackets. To add further embellishment to the mix the models sported oversized bangles on their wrists with bright gloves covering only their fingers.
