Palazzo pants are not new to the fashion scene, not even rather wide palazzo pants which off course where a big hit in the 70's. Similar words can be said about platform shoes that where fashionable in the late 90's.The palazzo pants you see me wearing are a diversion of the latter, but in a much more extreme width. When wearing these pants it makes me feel more elegant than just ordinary jeans as when walking the 'waving' of the pants is beyond anything and the combination with my super high spike heeled platform shoes brings the 70's back.
Since Miu Miu and Céline have introduces the palazzo pants in their latest runways SS and Tory Burch for the coming season FW 2011/ 12 the trend already has spotted in major stores like Zara or Topshop . These are good indicator if looks make it from the runway to the street. The retailer has gotten incredibly good at taking inspiration from key shows, and translating each season’s stand-out trends before the designs that inspired them have even hit stores.

When asked about her design inspiration, Lisa replies, “accessories should have no rules or boundaries." I design for the woman who, like me, might wear pearls to work during the day and go all Rock and Roll glam on the weekends; a woman who likes to convey style with her jewel adornments, but doesn’t want to necessarily conform to one ‘look’ everyday.“
In the words of fashion icon Coco Chanel, "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." With this in mind, Lisa's designs reflect her experience as a Wardrobe Stylist where she translates trends into practical, everyday style for her clients. The designer/stylist feels its imperative that a woman is inspired to express herself at every moment in time, whether it be in her casual attire going to a black tie affair.
