This Fall, lace works its black magic on intricately detailed dressing for after dark. Frilly, yet fearless...mysterious, feminine and tough.

Did you know that a little lace can go a long way? With a lace, you can achieve a sophisticated and classy look or you can opt for dainty and innocent one. There were many different shades of lace, from classic black to metallic golds to baby blues to vibrant orange. The cuts were quite modest, with high necklines, low hemlines and demure silhouettes.

The "Lace" trend have infiltrated the collection of Prada and other designers. It has been published/posted to (online) magazines.

Thanks to My It Things , we can easily get fall's fascination with fine cut lace by starting with these picks:

Gucci Fall 08/09 Ad Campaign: Brings Out Every Woman's Bohemian Wild Side

For Fall 08/09 collection, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini explored the glamorous world of Bohemia. The collection is a combination of luxury with a bit of rock n’ roll.

Ornate embroidery with gold thread, metal disks, gold tassels and small beading touches everything from the sleeves of floaty silk dresses to the waists of cropped shearling jackets. Glittering metal or jeweled accents cover shoulders and hems, while sphere-like gold studs decorate the surface of bags, shoe booties and cropped leather jackets. The pants for this season is: narrow, low-waisted and with built-in stirrup closures. With grosgrain or passementerie piping, the pants are paired with soft embroidered shirts, heavy wool jackets covered in rich detail, and are tucked in to over-the-knee, fringed boots. Skirts, meanwhile are short, heavily decorated and paired with cropped hip-height jackets.

Check out Gucci's campaign ads for this collection and agreed with me that it brings out every woman's bohemian wild side.
