Lagerfeld forgets plot

Hemlines rise and fall, colours fade in and out of fashion, but the challenge for the major Paris fashion houses remains the same each season. The goal Bicester Village Prada Opening for designers at the helm of Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Balenciaga et al is to maintain the perfect balance Bicester Village Prada Bag Price of old and new – to chuck out the chintz, while keeping the family silver shining brightly.
