PARIS FASHION WEEK QUICK WRAP UP

Somehow I managed to fall a bit behind on Paris fashion week so I'm turning it into one big giant post!

LANVIN

Was one of the best collections at Paris fashion week, I'm so blown away by the creative way they use silk.



PHILIP LIM

I think what we all love about Philip Lim is that his pieces are so wearable. You can buy one of his items and instantly get so much wear out of them, this collection is very close to my personal style, simple but quirky at the same time.






MIU MIU

This is one of the collections that struck me the most, and the minute you looked at it you knew it was Miu Miu it wasn't just because of the great shoes, but the dark elegance of the models and the clothes.






CHLOE

A lot of people didn't like the Chloe collection and I'm not surprised ever since Pheobe left they've been getting a bit of a bad rep and I don't even want to talk about last season. Personally I don't think this collection was that bad it reminded me a a moving artwork!

TRACEY REESE
(Extra)

I know she wasn't in Paris fashion week but I need to give Tracey Reese some recognition.
Marc Jacobs was Tracey's class mate at Parsons in New York and he helped her get a job at Perry Ellis which helped launch her career so kudos to him. I hope she keeps getting better and better cause she's one of the few young black women designers.

I just have to have one of those yellow pencil skirts after seeing it at not just one, but two shows!

I also heart the yellow jacket, and Chloe's show is a moving piece of art - great description!

hugs,

The movement on the Lanvin gowns are so beautifully dramatic.
And I’m actually liking the tuxedo-esque looks at Miu Miu, especially the 2nd outfit.
Tracy Reese has some really beautiful frocks. I can totally envision myself in a version of the 3rd look. And I adore the 6th dress

Seraphine said...

Would you hate me if I said I liked MiuMiu *because* of the shoes? Those shoes look great with anything! Lol.

Joking aside, I loved all of it.
