Best of Paris

Spring is here but my eyes are already wandering on the wonderful fall/winter 09/10 designs of the Paris fashion week. I’ve been told I wear too much black but what’s a girl to do when her favorite designers send all black down the runway once again? Some would say open your horizons but I simply can’t stop admiring the work of these amazing designers. Who can resist Gareth Pugh’s gothic warrior, the androgyny vibes of Ann Demeulemeester’s designs, the 80’s glam aestethics of Balmain or the beautiful cuts of Margin Margiela’s collection? Rick Owens seems to be the only one stepping out the black comfort zone, perhaps frosty white is the new black of the season? I could deal with that…

Currently my wishlist for fall has extended with a pair of platform boots, spiked and studded clothing, thick knits, a heavily shoulder padded blazer and frosty white leather. Givenchy’s collection should be up tomorrow and I’m keeping my figers crossed it’s as good and inspiring as last year’s.

  1. Those designs are awsome, but I have to say there’s almost nothing new. That frosty white leather is kinda cool and new, but still… I don’t feel it. Maybe it’s me where something is wrong. 🙂

  2. Nina V: I agree with you. There was almost nothing new but I still love it all (probably because I love last year’s collections as well). 😀 In a way it’s a good thing because all the clothes from this winter are still applicable in fall 09/10. 🙂 Saves money…Karen: Oh yes, Balmain rocks!

  3. Enep: Thanks! Balmain’s collection was like a winter updgrade of the wonderful spring collection.
