Superlong Sunday - Paris Fashion Week edition
I'm going to make this brief (well, that is, I'll try to make this as brief as possible) and post "just a few" favorites from the shows so far, in no particular order.
Karl Lagerfeld usually bores me. I get that he's brilliant and all, but his collections at Chanel tend to be predictable - he is always right on the trend, there is always going to be a classic suit or two, camellias and black and white will likely make an appearance...you get the picture. So I was pleasantly surprised by his fun and youthful fall collection.
Especially this coat:
The whole outfit, really - the scarf is one great mass of ohmygoodness and don't get me started on those boots.
Conversely, I always look forward to what Dries van Noten puts out (his luxe collection from last fall was a particular favorite of mine). I liked (no, loved) his navy and black color scheme, his steamlined layers, and the feathery print of that coat!
I know everyone was going off about the model-torture at Victor and Rolf but I just loved the clothes. Especially the print on that last dress!!
Loooved these looks from Undercover.
I think Ann Demeulemester is great...she does have a formula but it's more to my taste so I enjoy seeing what she has to offer every year. This silhouette is so modern.
I've never heard of Haider Ackermann - it's always nice to see new names in the fashion world. I love these looks, which are so beautifully self-contradictory: minimal yet luxe.
And finally I'll end with the requisite Balenciaga for some major eye-candy. Honestly, that man (Nicholas Ghesquiere) can do no wrong! He's the most innovative person in fashion, which I think is the best demonstration of his house's great legacy.
