Day 5 & 6: Paris Fashion Week S/S 2014

Monday, September 30, 2013

There was a sprinkle of cultural patterns & prints in collections for Day 5 & 6 of Paris Fashion Week. Both Asian & Tribal influences were predominant. It's always intriguing to see how cultural customs are interpreted and transformed into designs. I'm not a big fan of tribal print, but it's nice to see how designers are softening the look. I really loved Chisato's collection! The use of dragonfly's in her designs were perfect and many of the dresses looked like beautiful watercolor paintings. My favorites from Day 5 were Chisato and Victor Rolf. Also, how FUN was Jean Paul Gaultier's show!?! I loved the dancing and theatrics. My favorites for Day 6 were Andrew Gn, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Givenchy and Akris. All had really nice collections. Nothing earth-shattering for these days. Have an awesome week everybody!

Day 3 & 4: Paris Fashion Week S/S 2014

Saturday, September 28, 2013

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'm enjoying mine and I'm really enjoying (watching) Paris Fashion Week. I was very pleased with Day 3 & 4. My favorites for Day 3 were Nina Ricci, Balenciaga and Lanvin. My favorites for Day 4 were Isabel Marant, Issey Miyake, Roland Mouret, and Christian Dior. Days 3 & 4 were a mix of black & white, florals & fun butterfly prints, popping metallic fabrics, and bursts of exuberant color. I do want to say one thing! Ok, maybe two! Isabel Marant is a genius. I've never seen such a perfect mix of sweet and sexy done so TASTEfully. She does sweet for grown-ups! Her designs say I'm sharp, intelligent, confident, AND sexy. Secondly, I loved Dior's set-up for their show and the necklaces the models wore were absolutely gorgeous. They were like gorgeous crystals that cascaded around their neck. HaHa I'll post Day 5 & 6 Monday ;). Also a sweet welcome to all my new readers! I've noticed you guys. Super appreciated! It tells me I'm doing something right :). Welcome!
