What are your favorite fabrications and colors

Louis has given us so many beautiful fabrics/fabrications in such gorgeous colors.  What are some of your favorites?

Re: What are your favorite fabrications and colors

I prefer natural fabrics, so I don't own much from Louis. I did buy and keep that beautiful embroidered skirt he did, and I have absolutely no place to wear it. Just too beautiful to pass up.

 

When Katrina was hosting that last show, she continued to talk about his armhole configuration, how it is so slimming because he cut them higher than many others. I don't know anything about armholes, but I found it informative and also noticeable on the models. There was a black top with ruffles that I am still thinking about, and my only hesitation is the fabrication.

Whisper Knit, Posh Knit, the real silks and wools of long ago! 

 

Colors are harder I don't wear beiges and I try to avoid black but most other colors I like.

I'm probably the odd one here because I prefer natural fabrics, but did buy some of his clothing.

 

I think his best fabrics were leather, cotton, faux suede, and acrylic used for the last plaid blazer.  

 

Unfortunately, I wasn't shopping at QVC when he offered wool, suede, silk, and linen.  

 

I liked his almost black, midnight navy; although he didn't call it that.
