Paris Couture F/W 12 Was Beautiful As Usual

Paris Couture F/W 12

 

Paris Couture Week F/w 12 has basically ended and it was as beautiful as ever! I really enjoyed most of the collections this season! This couture season was very exciting for several reasons. First off Kimye or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up and showed out by causing mass hysteria and mini pandemonium during the three or four days they were in Paris. Apparently even a child got pushed around in the mayhem. They even pissed off some editors and the like for showing up to the Stephane Rolland show one hour late. They were so late that they barely made it to the finale. SMH! Then we saw an overabundance of V-necks and cape dresses on the runway. I think those are two trends I can live with.

Then new street style star, and wife of a Russian bil-ga-zil-ionaire, Ulyana Sergeenko decided to show her own couture collection outside of the Chambre’s approved couture shows. Methinks that’s a bold choice me lady. If you follow street style and street style blogs, you may recognize Ulyana’s name. She is quite popular. She is the queen of the new Russian Fash Pack, and it looks like she might knock our dearly beloved Anna Dello Russo from atop her street style throne. Anyway. Her show was great for a first effort. It was a little fanciful, but I could see some things I wouldn’t mind wearing if I were a couture customer. One can dream…

Last but not least… RAF MOTHERF*CKIN’ SIMONS!!!!!!! The designer just showed his first collection for Dior and he knocked it out of the park! He went back through the archives and updated many of the pieces that Dior himself made famous. Bar jackets and New Look dresses were shown amongst the most gorgeous floral backdrops that were also a nod to the man himself…Christian Dior. The balance between the minimal and excess was perfect. We weren’t overwhelmed by any of the looks, just stunned by their beauty. This collection got only a few bad reviews. Everyone else is drinking the Kool-aid. I think you should too.
