Paris Spring Fashion Week Post 3

Karl Lagerfeld’s show was full of black, with few colors thrown in. Surprise Surprise! The main color were black ad white, with some silver and apricot thrown in. I was surprised that the bulk of his show had shorts, shorts, shorts, and even shorter mini dresses. There were flat shorts and pleated shorts and shorts that appeared to be made from leather. I guess Uncle Karl wants everyone to bear their legs this coming spring.

Lanvin was an exceptional show. Alber Elbaz really knows how to dress a woman. While I thought the makeup and hair was more than a little harsh, the clothes totally made up for that. This collection was full of hot dresses and dress suits with peplum swirling around the hips. I also like the color scheme of the show. There were you blacks and neutrals, but there were also reds, and blues, and yellows that popped. The jumpsuits were very ladylike and chic. I also like how Elbaz included the big billowy sleeves without making them look cliche. The shoes were gorgeous and very high. The last few dresses in the collection were great because the mixing of patterns and fabrics with the draping was just out of this world.

Dior carried the theme from the house’s last couture show into the spring ready to wear show. All of the models were dressed up as glamorous 1940s movie starlets with long wavy hair and shiny platform shoes with socks. The wore long flowing gowns or short jackets and trench coats with exposed slip dresses or camisole tops. Galliano also made dresses out of lace,lame, busitiers, and tulle. It was a very classic collection.
