Paris men's fashion week: Julius S/S 2011

The second, and probably one of the most awaited fashion show for me in Paris, was  the Julius spring/summer 2011. For this show I had a seat, so my boyfriend was left alone in the camera section to take care of the footage, and with our mutual agreement, he made a video to better catch the atmosphere of the collection. Unfortunately, I had left the camera stand home, so the result is a bit shaky but let’s give my camera man a big  break since this was his first time using the video mode, and at the same time the video debuts as my first ever Youtube creation.

This collection did not make my heart skip as much as the Julius’ fall/winter 10/11, but there are definitely nice elements there. My favorite pieces of the collection have to be the jackets and the tank tops with straps, which I as a woman, would wear anytime. I adore the easiness of the silhouette and the use of red and burgundy color as accentuating points. As you can see, my hatred towards the color red has turned into a delicate passion, well that is, when it’s styled right. I have heard rumors that Julius is coming up with unisex collection in the future, which is great news for us female fans of the talented designer Tatsuro Horikawa.

Once again, I couldn’t resist of capturing some of the great styles outside of the Julius show.

    everyone looks like their part of a very chique cult!
    great photos, great show, edgy as always. Did Horikawa mention why he decided to do a show in such a ‘sterile’ environment this season? It is almost day and night compared to the fall-winter show.

    • Yeah they (or we) do! Thank you, although I think there is still room for improvement for me to become a great street style photographer. I’m slowly getting learning, I suppose… :)

      I did not talk to the designer myself, so I don’t know for sure but his spring collections are always much lighter and brighter, so maybe this sterile environment was the perfect surroundings to present the collection.

  2. really enjoying your paris posts. julius would be one of my fave to go. interesting crowd too :)

    • That’s so great to hear! Julius was definitely one of my favorites to go but I really loved the way the Viridi-Anne and Damir Doma were presented, more about those two later! ;)

    • Yeah, everyone was wearing quite blackish outfits, maybe with the exception of gray and white. It’s a pity we didn’t have time to take pictures of all my outfits but for example for Julius show I wore this outfit without the necklace: http://fashionflux.indiedays.com/2010/05/26/goodbye-spring-welcome-summer-part-2/
      I was photographed to few places but have no idea where haha (silly me, should have asked).

      I’m not sure about Stockholm fashion week because I don’t have enough summer holiday for that. If for some reason I would get a chance to go for free, I would probably try to make it. ;)

      But hey, we still need to meet up this summer! When & where?

      xoxo
