Just a site for some crazy little things, but we do like.
After long-haul of fashion week, it down to its end , another season. I would say that this season show was ……. not pretty impressive. There were some rise and fall, fail or just above mean. It was like a pre-step before another revolution. Some cliche were still around, few innovation had been injected. But, of course, they gotta have a star. Let’s reveal later. Here, I will concluded first 3 days of Paris Fashion Week.
Balenciaga S/S 2013
Let’s start with what I admired, Balenciaga. We hardly expect anything from Nicolas Ghesquière. The result was fresh but root to the house in his modernism. This season, Balenciaga offer wide range of selection from crop to frill and some really touch both consumer and editorial part. The color scheme was really accessible and compatible to the season.
Lanvin S/S 2013
Nina Ricci S/S 2013
When Alber Elbaz say yes, it means yes to his girls. Asymetric cropped, bias cut showed feminine dominatrix has been sent thru the runway with Lanvin’s attitude. Who will dare to offer the single sleeve jackets to their clients, if they are not leader. The accessories look divine, the drape dress look super sophisticated but not the best from its house. We need more, more , more, right? Peter Copping’s confidence has grown up to reveal his other side of dimension to Nina Ricci’s collection. A little S&M on Parisian made a twisted to his sweet clients. It has more powerful strike on the runway and the collection looks strong. He will be more fun next collection, finger cross.
Balmain S/S 2013
Dries Van Noten S/S 2013
Anthony Vaccarello S/S 2013
No one deny his craft’s talent of Olivier Rousteing. He delivered very sophisticated craftmanship to Balmain worth every dollars to the clients. However, I think he is still struck to succesful archives. I think he has more to give, I am quite sure but time will prove. For Dries Van Noten, he decided to mix plaid with flower which has been matched many times but his modern styling look contemporary and cool to current situation. Frankly, I am not a big fan for this collection but for something that should be really cliche. He made them look fine and still fresh. it is not really easy to do. He also offered some tailor shape that we rarely saw from him. His client will like this collection. Show me your hand, who remember Anja Rubik’s dress on MET? or Gywneth’s Bazaar cover. That’s him the new sexy star. This collection Anthony Vaccarello still insisted to his sexiness with his leggy-obsesssion. No one in Paris gave you something fierce like him. We must give him credit to spice up Paris.
Carven S/S 2013
Felipe Oliveira Baptista S/S 2013
Alexis Mabille S/S 2013
Mugler S/S 2013
Rue du Mail S/S 2013
Guillaume Henry vamp Carven many previous collection with his pristine modern girl. This collection, he went back to early 19th century with his modern tailoring but i think the length of bottom part was not IT in this season. I saw some Chanel-ish in Alexis Mabille collection, one to watch ? I felt too hot and greesy for Mugler. It might because of color that related to Nicola’s journey to equator zone and fabric but I love you Nicola, you knew that 🙂
