Highlight of PFW so far has got to be the Sonia Rykiel (she is one of my all time favourite designers) . The clothes, the music and Sonia herself sitting front row (she stepped down from the brand, leaving it to her adorable daughter) made the show quite a performance. I’ve been busy shooting street-style for various projects keeping warm in a multitude of layers. Hit my favourite Paris bar, Le Pompom, where the Cobrasnake was going crazy on the DJ Decks. In a total un-fashion week spirit, I’ve been eating alot – using the fact that so many of my friends are in town as an excuse to dine at all my favourite restaurants. Tonight we are heading to the “This is New York” party at Le Regine, I’ll be wearing a lilac wig and some sort of velvet LBD. Read More
Day 2 of Paris Fashion Week: started off feeling a little lethargic after a midnight escape to the Gareth Pugh afterparty on Wednesday. Hung out in the sporadic sunshine all day, wrapped up warm in layers of black leather. Read More
Day One of PFW is a warm up for the sartorial marathon to come. It is the only “calm” day of the week- this means smaller, more intimate shows and longer periods of time between shows to relax and eat (or gulp down caffeine). Read More
Paris fashion week to me has a certain unique edge to it that gives the glamorous silhouettes a bit of funk. From tinsel skirts at Balenciaga worn with a structured top half to Chambray denim worn with foiled gold at Balmain, The designers featured at Paris always know how to mix the young with the old.
Valentino brought 1920’s lace back into the picture and wasn’t scared to hit the ground with it, while Chloe brought interested and unique proportions down the runway; I love the exaggerated details in the garments – why not call out a great waistband or a cool sleeve.
Here’re my highlights from Paris, what did you guys think?
