Before I get into fashion week, I just want to say, please go see Alice in Wonderland. It was a very good movie. While watching the movie, please don’t focus on the book version because it follows the book, but it doesn’t follow the book. I don’t want to give too much away, but you will understand what I am talking about once you see the film. Also if you are a super geek like me, you will be uber happy to know that the preview for the new Tron movie, Tron Legacy is shown during the previews.
Paris Fashion Week has been really impressive. I expected it to be this way though. I love Paris Fashion Week. I rarely find bad clothes or bad collections during the fashion week there. I have been perusing the style.com and other sites looking for pictures of the collections, and they have been amazing. John Galliano created another equestrian themed collection for Christian Dior. It feels like a more ready to wear version than the last couture show, but that doesn’t mean it is more toned down. Issey Miyake was very United Colors of Benetton looking to me. The colorful coats and knitwear look very exciting for fall. Lanvin was very dark and featured amazing draping and tight silhouettes. Roland Mouret was very structural, but I’m not surprised. The way is shapes his fabrics makes it look like geometry is his best friend. Yohji Yamamoto showed some of the best knitwear and menswear on the planet. This is what Alexander Wang should have showed. Tim Hamilton’s collection was small, but very wearable. It reminded me of something Karen O would wear on her day off. Photos from Style.com. I hope you all have a great weekend. I am now going to attempt to write an essay on Rick Owens with a broken A key.
