Paris Fashion Week Is Still Going On!!!

As much as I love paying attention to all of the different fashion weeks, it can get overwhelming. Can you imagine if I had to travel to all of them. I did New York this year that was crazy. I mean it was fun, but it was crazy ripping and running all over town, and doing homework, and doing blog work. Anyway….I think Paris Fashion Week ends on Wednesday. In the meantime, check out these collections. Photos from Style.com.

John Galliano designed some kind of sailor themed Christian Dior show that seemed more Gilligan’s Island than anything. It wasn’t bad. When I heard the reports of a sailor themed show, I said to myself uh-oh not another sailor themed fashion show, but I liked it. I think it was the colors and prints that did it for me.

Cacharel was beautiful. The colors were amazing. The prints were amazing! Very impressed with what I saw. I would buy so many of the dresses in that show. They were so bright and beautiful.

Jean Paul Gaultier gets a standing ovation from me. He used plus sized models again. AGAIN! He used Beth Ditto, Crystal Renn, and Marguita Pring. The collection was inspired by rock and roll and Joan Jett, hence the wigs.

Viktor & Rolf’s collection was inspired by the men’s shirt. I love how they took said inspiration and made pants that looked like they were made from shirt arms, and big linebacker tops that looked like shirt exploded many times over. The design duo always know how to create something creative that you might not have thought of doing before.

Paris Spring Fashion Week Post 4

Requiem was a pretty solid collection of 17 pieces. This was another one of the chic Parisian ladylike collections with all dresses and skirts. No pants allowed! The fabrics were great except for the construction on few pieces seemed stiff and a little puckered. Maybe it was the way the model was standing. I don’t know, but I could definitely see some of the pieces on the modern woman.

This is one of my favorite Stella McCartney collections in a long time. They colors reminded me of the Tropics. I really like the blue/brown combination. The fabrics, the patterns on the fabrics, and the ruffles were amazing. Silk! Silk! Silk! The whole collection was very flirty and fun.

Viktor and Rolf was one big OHHHH EMMMM GEEEE moment for me with every piece they put out. It really was a collection of ruffles. They were everywhere. I saw ruffles on the pants, ruffles on the skirts, ruffles on the jackets. Then they had this huge dresses and jackets that had holes and shapes cut out of the ruffles. Viktor and Rolf’s construction and genius never cease to amaze me because they are just extremely well done. I don’t know who is going to wear these pieces but they all look crazy good.
