Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011 Continues To Roll On

Paris Fashion Week continues to roll on without Galliano…well not quite without him. His namesake collection showed in a small salon in Paris to a smaller crowd than usual. Twenty looks went out with his usual 1930s elegant flair. He is such a genius, and it sucks that he had to fall so hard, but racism and anti-Semitic remarks will not be tolerated.

The looks that Cédric Charlier designed for Cacharel were somewhat bland and boring to me. The only thing that saved the collection were the prints.

I don’t know if it was the hair or makeup or clothes, but the looks at John Paul Gaultier were very old and matronly. I really think I would have to see these clothes off the runway to get a better look at them.

Christophe Lemaire did a great job of bringing the 70s and Asian silhouettes back to Hermes. I loved the colors, patterns, and shape/cut of the fabrics in this collection. Oh and the leather word was devine. Good job!.

Giles Deacon is doing his best to bring Emanuel Ungaro back from the brink of destruction. While I think this collection could have been a little better, it is a wonderful change from the drama and bad design we saw with the line’s previous designers.

The clothes from Band of Outsiders was very preppy, which is perfectly ok because it was full of the preppy basics that aren’t bland and hold your attention. This is what brands like Abercrombie and American Apparel should be selling.

Cynthia Rowley started out light and moved into the dark with a collection that was very Cynthia Rowley, yet different at the same time.

Juan Carlos Obando has to be my favorite collection so far. It is classy, it is sophisticated,  and it is glamour. These looks will get you ready for any cocktail party or gala.

Lacoste was amazing, not just because they used a lot of black models, but because Lacoste designer Christophe Lemaire bowed out of his final season with the brand in beautiful way. The clothes, which reminded me of a modern Great Gatsby was perfectly Lacoste.

The girls at Ohne Titel make edgy clothes. They are things that modern and fresh. The clothes are perfect for the girl that doesn’t want to have to deal with pomp and fluff.
