Following the first post of my visit at Lanvin headquarters, here comes the second part that includes almost all the accessories from the Lanvin Summer 2013 collection. Python pumps in metallics, gorgeous shoulder bags and tiny minaudieres and the famous Lanvin crystal jewels. Knock yourselves out.
That was the only show that I catched at Tuilleries, since the rest were scattered all around Paris (poor me).
I must say I enjoyed Viktor&Rolf Summer 2013 collection more than last summer’s. More wearable clothes, soft and a bit 80s -many long dresses for next year if you’ve noticed. And is there something with big flowers on clothes? Prada did her own naive version on her collection and Viktor&Rolf adorned some of the garments with big metallic roses.
Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show was a party, an ode to music stars!
Disco balls and colorful headlights warmed us up of what was next and “Kiss” at the front row was another hint.
Models came out dressed as Grace Jones and then the music changed to Eurythmics “Sweet dreams” and multiple Annie Lenoxes appeared -and then changed again and black models came out as sexy Michael Jacksons under the matching soundtrack. Dancers were giving their own show at the back while gorgeous girls were parading as Charlotte Gainsbourgs, Madonnas, Boy Georges, Sades, Catherine Ringer and David Bowies,
in perfect alignment with the soundtrack!
The finale was dedicated to Amanda Lear playing herself and the show ended with the dancers and Jean-Paul running down the catwalk in laughs, overloading the guests with party vibes!
I have also taken a couple of videos but you have to wait for those a bit, dear fashion junkies.
Waiting 50 minutes for the Maison Martin Margiela fashion show would be ok if it wasn’t for the conceptual suffocating temperature inside the mansion. As if the weather wasn’t hot enough, all the walls at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild were covered in white plastic
- the outcome was intolerable but gorgeous.
Minimal as always, high waisted pants, straight lines, volumes in unexpected places, leather pieces
and organza gowns were the highlights of the collection.
Absolutely THRILLING music: The minute those spooky voodoo voices started, I got goosebumps.
Find the finale and the soundtrack below.
Visiting Paris for the fashion week is double pleasure for me, since it’s a great chance to meet my beloved friend Filep,
whom I hardly ever see and I’m missing so.
Arriving at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild where the Maison Martin Margiela show was set, we descovered that our seats were once again cheek to cheek! Lots of pictures in my camera are waiting to come out to the light, please be patient because my feet are killing me and my vitality battery is low
during Paris fashion week i payed my annual visit at Pierre Hardy headquarters to see the new collection of one of my most adorable accessories designers. Neon details, water-snake, killer heels, graphics and the characteristic cube design of monsieur Hardy, who launches, moreover, his first jewelry collection.
if you ask me Valentino showed one the most beautiful collections that i’ve seen so far. An organza delirium with lace, some embroidery and a handful of romanticism created a poetic collection that could be described as an “ode to elegance”. Maria Grazia Chuiri end Pier Paolo Piccioli keep doing an amazing job.
The name of the artwork given with the invitation of Givenchy fashion show is “Sirene” and was designed by M/M Paris (2011), in a limited edition of 1000 copies. The world of water has been the inspiration of Riccardo Tisci for next summer, showing some beautifully tailored sexy clothes and gigantic shark-teeth hanging around the neck. The show opened with Natalia Vodianova and ended with Gisele Bunchen. very few photos, battery went to sleep.
from the white men-type suits that appeared first on the show till the sporty clingy dresses that were the final looks, Stella McCartney’s aim was all about sexiness. and mesh.
breath taking location, pretty clothes, gorgeous models and -pity!-no concept music.
for April Crichton, the new creative director,who designed alongside Nathalie Rykiel the first Sonia Rykiel collection, yellow is the color of next spring, in a 20′s context. Models walked down the vibrant yellow catwalk while Queen were singing the “Bicycle Race”. Low waisted skirts and tight little sweaters, pleats and crepe-de-chine. Our beloved Rosanna Georgiou appeared second on the catwalk and i almost cheered!
yesterday after waiting 45 minutes under the burning sun (Paris lives a miracolo of 27 °C in the beginning of October!) we finally got into the Viktor & Rolf show. and if Anna in a Valentino lace dress doesn’t mind the heat, neither do i.
if you remember my small adventure from the previous time i came to Paris fashion week, well, history tends to repeat itself so once again Lanvin show was straight after Margiela show, which was 40 minutes delayed. Add a traffic jam and 25 minutes waiting at the same point of the street looking at each other in the shuttle makes a ‘mad me’ arriving at Lanvin by the time the show had started. no seats, no light to find your way to the stairs, all sweating and stressed.
lousy pictures. i promised myself next time i’ll be there an hour earlier no matter what because you really don’t want to see Freja Beha rocking the catwalk in some of the season’s greatest creations from the eighth fucking row.
