Paris Fashion Week is in full swing at the moment and with just one day left to go, here’s a wrap from the front row:
The prêt-à-porter shows kick off today with lesser known international names including Nicolas Andreas Taralis and Quentin Veron. Here’s hoping for a magical Autumn/Winter 2010/2011 runway season.
Dries Van Noten, Anne Valérie Hash and Limi Feu were highlights on Day 2.
Balenciaga, Balmain, Bara Bui, and Nina Ricci, rocked the catwalks. Aren’t we glad we only have to wait a whole year, to access this looks in shops? Umm, no!
Issey Miyake, Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood and Maison Martin Margiela were a mid week showcase that kept front row favourites excited about what was to come the rest of the week.
Jean Paul Gaultier still very much channeled the Russian Doll trend from last season. While Loewe was very prim and proper with sweet skirt suits.
Karl Lagerfeld, Hussein Chalayan, Sonia Rykiel and John Galliano were all on fine form with their Autumn/Winter 2010/11 collections. Although it was Galliano’s elaborate show which was inspired by warrior-women and paraded his women down the runway in yak-fur and chiffon, that stole the show.
Stella McCartney’s show was a display of her typical style with an added modern twist. Clean-cut pieces mixed with modernist looks made for a refreshing take on the brand. The highlight however was her dad who proudly sat front row. So if she failed to turn heads in Paris at least it was a memorable occasion.
Emanuel Ungaro was also out in full force. But surprisingly Lindsay Lohan was nowhere in sight. Has she been released from her duties as Creative Director?
Chanel, Chloé and Valentino are all on the cards for today.
Elie Saab’s show is tomorrow and considering the splash he made at the Oscars its guaranteed his new collection will be worth waiting for. Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Mui Mui and Paul Joe will wrap up the week.
