Dries Van Noten – Simply amazing. Perfect blend of boy meets girl hence the mix of plaid and floral, cashmere and organza. ”Grunge couture”, they call it.
Rochas – As Zanini put it, it’s youth, simplicity and romance!
Balenciaga – Office ready pants paired wtih bralets, polo-like tops with asymmetric skirts and pretty and flirty little dresses. What impressed me the most was the cut of each design from the beautiful ruffles to the cropped rigid tee to the fresh spin on sweetheart necklines.
Balmain – Say hi to strong shoulders, big pants, and leather. Olivier Rousteing rocked the nineties (in Cuba) while still incorporating the traditional Balmain skinnies and embellishments.
Lanvin – Reinvented classics, a dash of gold, heavy bling, simple swimsuits and jewel tones…Albert always brings it to the next level.
Isabel Marant – Always a fave of mine..her and Minkoff blow the free spirited and bohemian part of me away and this Hawaii inspired collection is no exception.
Vanessa Bruno – Oh what I would to do to spend a summer in Paris wearing simple but chic ensembles in the city and change into a gorgeous sundress for the beach…
Stella McCartney – Love love love!!!
Giambattista Valli – Although they were great grey suits and black ensembles, I have to admit it was the feminine side of the collection that really caught my eye. Guipure lace, dotted texture, more organza all in gorgeous variations of white and shades of gold, red and a dash of light pink and green for the floral pieces.
Chloé – Stunning and perfect for the 60th anniversary.
Chanel – ”It’s all about volume and lightness” Huge pearls, hula hoops, sheer hats, floral texture, skirts intentionally pulled up as a dress; this season’s collection was nothing traditional. Aside from the chic black and white ensembles, there were quite a lot of colors, ranging from colbat blue to bright magenta. Was it a great collection design, atmosphere, concept, color-wise and was it enjoyable to watch? Absolutely. Was it reminiscent of the roots of the brand, channeling each guest’s inner Coco? Not so much. What did you think?
Valentino – I was going to post the whole collection but I controlled myself.
Alexander McQueen – Sara Burton is definitely the Queen Bee. (See what I did here?)
Elie Saab – Magnifique!
Louis Vuitton – Although I probably wouldn’t be able to rock a checkered dress, this sixties inspired collection was awesome and Marc Jacobs puts up the best shows ever. Beautiful setting with models coming down from escalators in pairs? I approve.
