PFW Pt 2

March 11, 2010

So many shows, so many amazing moments. Paris is my favourite fashion week, and here’s some more reasons why.

Roland Mouret

The AW2010 collection was quite a departure in style for Roland Mouret, but I loved it. His signature hyper feminine, figure enhancing dresses were replaced by trousers (!), minimalist shift dresses and casual, sleek hooded dresses. For me it was far younger than I have seen from him before.

Sophia Kokosalaki

Kokosolaki was all about the soft, feminine materials and shapes this time, with a lot of emphasis on big waist defining belts. I particularly loved the black chiffon goddess dress layered over a nude mesh number. Sooo pretty!

Givenchy

Following up on D&G’s ski bunny theme, Ricardo Tisci used traditional snow flake knit prints together with neoprene (as in scuba diving suit material). Warm and cosy, I’m sure. Otherwise, the collection was of course very black, which is no bad thing, with surprising and super sexy flashes of red. I loved all the textures, the velvets, mesh, leather and sheepskin, and I love love love the sparkly leggings and of course the shoes! Yet again. Genius.

Sonia Rykiel

Make no mistake, Sonia Rykiel brought knitted stripes this time too, but the rest of the collection was full of tougher, yet soft and muted knitwear. She even managed to jump on the minimalist bandwagon with some of the pieces. And the ridonculous headpieces kicked ass!

Costume National

If someone did get the memo on the minimalist trend, it would have been Ennio Capasa at Costume National of course. Sharp tailoring and monochrome colours were the order of the day, again with unexpected flashes of colour though. And some of the more opulent pieces towards the end were rockin’.

Celine

I’m really getting into the whole minimalist trend even though it’s not really my style. The models at Celine just looked so damn chic!
