Paris Fashion Week Reviews - Part II


Today I'm wrapping up my mini review of Paris Fashion Week. Oh to have been in Pari' this past week....I have to make it one day so I have to keep grindin' hard because failure is not an option! Now that I've revived myself and my mission, let's get to the reviews.

Giambattista Valli

This line was extraordinary! I loved the ruffle details on the evening gowns. The structure of the suits were awesome and the wide skirts of the dresses was an ode to the late 50s and early 60s.

Stella McCartney

Modernized ruffles, atypical structure, and details such as appliques and beading played a major role on Stella's runway.
Yves Saint Laurent
Belted frocks, tapered hems, and the most awesome leather caged shoes I've ever seen! I loved the pairing of the evening dress with the silver metallic leather caged shoes. They're probably painful to walk in but they're so hot!
To be completely honest I was not thrilled with his line this time around. The designs did not flow and some were just plain ugly such as the ones that infused a western theme. However, because I am a fan, I had to post at least my favorite.
Further proof that florals will be a springtime trend again. I'm going to have to follow this designer at lot closer because I loved the flowy fabrics, bold use of color, and combination of patterns.
Costume National
I liked the folds of the fabrics and the deep v-neck tops. The colors were pretty much subdued with black being the mainstay on pretty much all of the designs.
I really liked the chain pieces paired with the classic Chanel designs. They became instantly more edgier. Nice statement necklaces adorned several of the looks and, although not shown, ruffles were big on this runway as well.
This concludes the reviews of Paris Fashion Week.
