So, Paris Fashion Week has had so many amazing shows so far and there is only 2 days left. There have been so many shows I completely love and I would be here for years if I was to write about them all, so, I have chosen my favourite looks from my favourite collections and compiled a little round-up of my favourite shows. Enjoy.
DRIES VAN NOTEN:
I loved the diversity throughout this collection.
Though he has toned it down in his past 2 collections, Gareth Pugh continues to create innovative, intriguing and beautiful designs.
I loved the "Where The Wild Things Are" style crowns.
Colourful, creative and like nothing else in Paris this fashion week. Another spectacular collection from Vivienne Westwood.
COMME DES GARCONS:
Beautiful ugliness - a very clever collection from Rei Kawakubo.
(definitely one of my favourite looks this fashion week - just love everything about it)
minimalistic androgyny teamed with good old fashioned glamorous gowns. Nothing crazy enough for Gaga this season I wouldn't have thought.
VIKTOR & ROLF:
I was in love with their Spring/Summer collection, it was deconstruction at its finest, this season is another beautiful collection, but, I am only really interested in the final piece which was transformed from the dress into the spectacular jacket, it was a stunning new take on the theme of their last collection.
Tim Blanks described Viktor & Rolf as "fashion's finest performance artists" which is true. Each of their shows is so much more than a catwalk show. This season they based the show on the idea of a "glamour factory" where one model - Kirsten McMenamy - stood in the middle on a rotating disc where Viktor & Rolf altered her outfit, adding and taking away as they dressed the passing models. Such an interesting and beautiful concept.
