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.
After some turmoil (Lindsay Lohan) , and then some more turmoil (Estrella Archs), Ungaro is a success. Giles Deacon did a really good job of bringing back some glory and none of the shame to the Paris fashion house. Photos are from Style.com. Enjoy!

From The Cut blog:
With the housekeeping finally complete and Lindsay Lohan and Estrella Archs tossed out like cigarette-burned leggings, Emanuel Ungaro has finally appointed a new designer: Giles Deacon. The designer — a designer first and foremost by profession, it must be noted — will stage a presentation at Paris Fashion Week in October, and probably another presentation for the following Fashion Week in March. He wants to really get his feet wet before hitting the runway — no slapdash “I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out” kinds of collections.
Read the rest here.
I think this is great, but there have been so many designers at Ungaro since the namesake designer left six years or so ago. I hope Giles Deacon can do something great with this brand because it needs some help. I actually did my final project on Ungaro. I had to pick a fashion company and rejuvenate it. I can’t wait to get my grades back.

From The Cut:
Emanuel Ungaro‘s revolving door continues. After womenswear designer Estrella Archs left the label last week, menswear designer Franck Boclet announced his departure from the company after a three-year tenure. In response, the label said it will put its menswear runway collection on hold, with the possibility of relaunching it in the future. However, it will still produce its licensed menswear lines. As for Boclet, he plans to launch his own menswear line at men’s fashion week in June.

PARIS – Estrella Archs, the chief designer hired last year to work beside artistic adviser Lindsay Lohan at Emanuel Ungaro, is exiting the French fashion house. Citing “irreconcilable differences related to the creative direction of the brand,” Archs said she left her job and will focus on developing her signature brand, established in 2007 and shown on the runway during Paris Fashion Week.
Who didn’t see this coming? I know I didn’t. SIKE! Now they want to go and cite “irreconcilable differences.” Uh ya think!?!?!?!?!? And WHAT?!?!? is going on with ol’ homegirl Lindsay’s face? I swear she looks strung-out and high in all the pics from that day. Poor chile.
According to The Cutblog:
Lindsay Lohan did not attend the fall 2010 Emanuel Ungaro
show in Paris this morning. “She’s not involved in this collection,” Ungaro owner Asim Abdullah told WWD
backstage. Lohan has been attending shows and events in Paris, however. Last night, while the Oscars went on, she turned up at the launch party for Turkish Vogue
