Mr. X and Power Flowers – Delice – New Release by Violator

Mr. X is anticipating spring… so is Violator with the new release called Delice made of heavy royal blue silk brocade with a hint of lavender shot through with silver thread flowers that are just dazzling.

On the runways from Paris to London, Milan to New York there were more floral prints than in an Impressionist garden… but not the delicate buds of Monet at Giverny.  Big bold floral prints are all the rage and Delice by Violator captures this trend eloquently.

The jacket of this outfit is emblazoned with big bold chrysanthemum flowers giving the texture an Asian twist.  The hat adds a dramatic flair to this look and is pure sculpture.

The cinched waist, wide belt and intricate shoulder pads give a nod to 1940s chic glamour while the sleek textured mini skirt is totally 60s mod.  Delice cleverly combines looks from different eras in a way that is smart and sophisticated and definitely not your common garden-variety design.

If you take off the chest ruffles, shoulder pads and skirt ruffles, you are left with a slimmed down sexy version of this outfit that holds its’ own.  As part of the Prêt-à-porter Line, Delice comes in black and silver, black and gold, red and gold and blue and silver.  There is an art to dressing well and you cannot miss out with this fantastic and versatile style.
I am wearing a new skin by Morphine -- it is fresh and dramatic with perfect shading and perfectly shaped lips.  I had the opportunity to interview the creator of this fine line of skins for an upcoming issue of
