Paris in Four Months


Paris Fashion Week, Part II



Glitter at Elie Saab

I know that this post is a little bit delayed but that is due to a very lovely trip to Rome and giving myself the weekend to rest up a little bit. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little flashback to Paris Fashion Week.

Over here to the right you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the Elie Saab show (which I barely made it to due to Parisian traffic) full of supermodels like Gigi, Karlie and Romee. And glitter of course! And who can resist a little bit of glitter every now and then? That's probably the reason as to why I also fell in love with the gorgeous Roger Vivier shoes, which you can see above, at their presentation. One day I hope they'll be mine. They're so pretty I can't get them out of my head...  


A day of presentations...

During fashion week there's not only shows happening at different venues around town, there's also presentations and meetings filling up the calendar. Since I couldn't be at Carolina Herrera's show in New York I was so happy to see the clothes up close and personal at their presentation here in Paris. You probably could have left me in this show room and I wouldn't have minded at all. Going to the Oscar de la Renta showroom was also a little pinch-me moment for me since I've been in love with this brand ever since I was first introduced to the brand as a teenager watching every second of Sex and the City religiously. I also had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan Saunders, who's taken over the creative direction at DVF while visiting their showroom in Le Marais as well as popping by the Georges Hobeika showroom to lust over sparkly dresses.

Data Center Chanel

Another dream come true is always to attend the Chanel show. My very first Chanel show was their Haute Couture show this summer (which you can see more of in my previous posts: I, II and III) and this was my very fist Ready-to-Wear show together with the brand.

The Chanel Ready-to-Wear shows are always a spectacular event. One season they transformed Grand Palais into a grocery store, another year into a demonstration site, a Parisian street, an all-white carrousel, airport... And the list goes on and on. Working as a set designer for these events must be the most stressful and exciting jobs ever! 

This year Chanel made the Grand Palais look like a data central and opened the show with two models in robot gear walking down the runway. You can see more from the show by clicking play on the little video here to the right if you want to. 


Louis Vuitton by Nicolas Ghesquière

Paris Fashion Week always ends with the Louis Vuitton show for me. A show that I always look forward to each season. Nicolas Ghesquière has changed and created so many trends and a new ways to dress ever since taking over the position as creative designer for Louis Vuitton. It's always incredible to see what he comes up with each season and then to see how people translate this into everyday wearable fashion. 

This season was no different. I've already made a mental note about those awesome iPhone cases that went down the runway during the show – I'm pretty sure this will be the new craze when it comes to street style next season (which will come around sooner than you think).
