'A Lovely, Lyrical, Lilting Name... Lolita'

There was most certainly an air of school-girl-gone-bad on the runways this season, and what with Polanski being in the news so often lately to do with his own Dolores Haze, it's pretty apparent that the Lolita Effect is making its way back into our psyche. And when you think about it, it's quite a strange thing to be appealing, isn't it?

I wont go as far as to say that its recurrence has something to do with our sexualized youth, because clearly the story of Lolita goes back way further than Britney Spears, but there is definitely something to be said for it's obvious influence on several shows this season, including Chanel, Miu Miu and Christopher Kane, pictured above.
