The fashion is a mixture of sparkly flapper frocks (above, Miu Miu) and potato sack dresses.
Little House on the Prairie also served as inspiration for Spring 2009. Marc Jacobs (right) in particular showed this in his line. Models wore a mixture of plaid in numerous understated colours and were topped off with straw hats.
These trends certainly reflect our current cultural climate, however we hope that the clothes can stay and the economic crisis will soon be over.
So much to buy, so little money!
