THAKOON FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR
Wow talk about a disconnected collection, when I first saw it I thought "Oh no", but it's grown on me. I love the clothes, but I don't think the presentation was well put together especially in the second half. Thakoon seems to have gotten inspiration from other collections. It looks like all the designers made love and this is their baby.

Chanel, Lanvin, Philip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs anyone?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE STARS SHOW UP AT LANVIN


I think Jessica's lipstick is a little severe.

Lucy Liu rocked it, I love her in white.

Of course Kanye and Alexis were there! I can't wait for these two to get married, the most fashionable wedding ever!

LANVIN FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR I always wonder about the people in the back row.

KANYE AND ALEXIS ENJOYING PARIS

I have nothing to say about plastic Vivica.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


LOUIS VUITTON FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR


I think the new bags are amazing, they've stepped it up since 4-5 years ago.


I really like this collection, I thought it was very chic and must better then the previous. The hats and head pieces are just genius it really draws you to the models.

MY LOVE, MARC JACOBS

BALENCIAGA FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR

From what I hear Balenciaga has taken inspiration for their recent collections from the shape of a car. It's a bold move and they've pulled it off, so much so that they seem to be getting copied everywhere. (See Fendi below)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FENDI FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR
TAKING INSPIRATION FROM BALENCIAGA?


I like the last outfit the most with the bronzy gold tone coat, it's so freaking fabulous! Wish Karl had been more origional though...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VIKTOR AND ROLF FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR



Is it me or are Viktor and Rolf trying to send a message across? They are one of the collections I always look forward to!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHLOE FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR


I love how Chloe's clothes look like an artist painted them. This is a total hit in my opinion, I can see a lot of celebrities sporting some of these dresses.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHANEL FALL 2008 READY TO WEAR


*Yawn* some good pieces though, which I have selected.

Ps.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the sweet comments & feedback, I ♥ you all!

I like Lanvin, but not a huge fan of Balenciaga. But then again, the last collection had to grow on me too...

Wendy said...

Lucy Liu looked fantastic, I love her!

hannah said...

Thanks for your comments. You're really one of my top fav blogs ever

WendyB said...

It would be sooooooooooooooooooo fun to wear the "No" coat. I love the way the "O" really jumps out.

Fashion Fleur said...

great coverage, love viktor and rolf!

Belle said...

the third chloe dress is just dream like, i love it. fendi's a toned done balenciaga to me, looking at their runways. it's not a bad thing though. great coverage.

Seraphine said...

I love the Chloe styles. I'd wear those. But ayeee... it was 70 degrees today, one of those bright California spring days where you notice all the buds coming out on the trees. I need to find some shorts to wear too!

Debbie Shiamay said...

EEYIKES. Jessica Alba'a boobs never looked so big before. haha! And ur so right about Lucy. She's getting fabber everyday. Love these pictures, girl!

Ediot said...

the chloe collection is amazing.
and the takoon collection has great hair styling- really love it.

Fashion Tidbits said...

falling in love with the chanel collection!

Lotem said...

OMGOMG the Viktor and Rolf trenchcoats are sooooo amazing.
Barely wearable, but extremely special.
Have a great day.

Cate said...

-it's right that jessica alba's lipstick was a little severe, especially because we are used to softer looks on her.
-viktor and rolf have always got new crazy ideas ^^ remember the collection with the pillows and bedsheets, or the all black one?
-my favourite collections were chloe and chanel.
love
cate

copperoranges said...

i looove the chloe collection!

copperoranges said...

i looove the chloe collection!

Neekoh said...

I love it when you post runway stuff. I was just wondering, where do you find all the images? Do you just 'net crawl all day?

Anika said...

Lucy Liu is growing on me more an more. I more or less neglected her and her style before Cashmere Mafia, but I've been noticing her more lately.

Miss Woo said...

Milla is bringing the neck warmer back!

jadorevogue said...

Loved this post! I agree on Thakoon, it was a bit of a mess. I thought Louis Vuitton was way better than previous seasons. As for my favourites from Paris, it's Balenciaga, Lanvin and Chloé.

Mer said...

what can I say... I love jessica alba!!! :-) she is my fashion icon, totally!!!!

Marleaux said...

LMAO, you said everything there is to say about plastic Vivica. Too funny and too true.

Secretista said...

Lucy Liu is my new Fashion Hero. I loved her back in my Middle School days with Charles Angels, but I love her EVEN MORE!!

Viktor and Rolf truly inspire me.

Carolina Lange said...

Luci liu looks amazing! and I also love Jessica's dress, is so cute!

Lola Eliza. said...

I love v&r! LV was better this season and Chanel was boring but the carousel was sweet! I missed Kanye in Australia to move to the Uk. so sad.

iñaki said...

It's funny, I thought the same about Thakoon's collection. It's just like a compilation of copied looks form the past season! Boo!

xx

saray said...

love that Philip Lim dress!
super cute!

The Seeker said...

Great post. You've made a great couverage.
Thanks for all that information.

xx

CHIC NOIR said...

I so love LV and Balenciaga. Did you see that Baenciaga sleveless(sp) blk shift dress, it is to die for.

How pretty is Jourdan Dune.

CHIC NOIR said...

I also love Channel and Fendi.

Ana said...

I dont think Karl could have copied Ghesquiere.

Lucy Lui looks amazing and I love Kanye+Alexis.

addicted said...

im loving paris fashion week!! and yes, jessicas lipstick was a bit severe. i didnt really understand her belt either.

Jay Cam said...

wow, seeing all these stars makes me jealous!

someday, i may dress as good as them!
: )

jayne said...

wow even someone like me who isn't well versed in runway can see the obvious "inspiration" of thakoon

ooo chloe is truly stunning

enc said...

I think you said it: plastic!

That comment you made at the beginning: "It looks like all the designers made love and this is their baby" was great, and made me laugh!

said...

i agree with you on thakoon.. it took me a while to get used to it... it usually takes me a while to get used to the fall looks because im so excited for spring and the bright colors, and then i look at the fall shows and everything is so black and gloomy!

and i love that you look for stuff on ebay.. ive tried that, but the shipping rates are so expensive!

Jill said...

Really like Lanvin's collection, but I'm not loving the Balenciaga and the Fendi right now, they'll probably grow on me though.

Imelda said...

I LOVE the Chloe collection, really amazing!!!

NonchalantMod said...

I love Thakoon and Lucy Liu looks amazing as always..

Kira Fashion said...

hello dear, dear!

you always post the best here!!
licy liu in lanvin first line is really great, she is a godness!!!

a kiss

thanks so much for all!
you are very sweet!

Lluviaschick said...
