I’m liking what I’m seeing so far… Hopefully Paris will be more impressive than the other three cities. Here is part 1 of my Paris catwalk reviews.
that Jacquemus does this weird playful stuff and sometimes it works.
a really, really nice Dries Van Noten dress that I want to wear right now.
that Balenciaga gives me hope that young Americans can come into an old French brand and breathe life into it without trying to change it too much. Let’s hope this happens with other brands, too.
that Carven took the very tired sixties trend and made it fresh.
Carven’s cute dresses. But honestly, who the hell holds a bag like that?
that Roland Mouret knows how to cut.
a sharp and sexy Balmain outfit that doesn’t look trashy or repetitive.
that this Balmain show was not an eyesore! In fact, it looked very nice.
that Ann Demeulemeester does the whole layered, effortless, deconstructed, punk look so well.
Nina Ricci’s feminine, chic collection. But I can’t help wondering if Peter Copping is being groomed to take over at Oscar de la Renta. Looking forward to updates on this matter. I think he is the man for the job.
Rick Owens’ version of a cocktail dress.
Lanvin’s trench coat.
that although Lanvin has not evolved a great deal in the past few years, Elbaz continues to deliver elegant, fashionable dresses that women will feel good when they wear. And isn’t that really what it should all be about?
that Jacquemus does this weird playful stuff and sometimes it doesn’t work.
that Anthony Vaccarello probably cut up an old pinstripe suit to make this silly dress.
when your Anthony Vaccarello dress looks like really wide pieces of novelty duct tape wrapped around your body. What happened to this being a sexy, beautiful brand?
that the print mixing at Dries Van Noten was just a bit too much in some places.
sheer dresses at Rochas. Does anyone know how to use lining????
belting over or above the bust. Sorry, Rochas. This does not work.
