So, here is part 1 of my favorite collections from Paris Fashion Week:

Maiyet: I love this collection because even though the palette is monochromatic the details make it eye-catching and rather exquisite. And the structure and construction of each piece is so beautiful and elegant. Combining all these elements creates a rather gorgeous and classic collection with pieces that will last you a lifetime.

Hermès: When I think classic Parisian chic, basically this collection is what I imagine. The girl who wears this collection puts a minimal amount of effort into her outfits, and yet she always looks amazing and chic. Basically, this is what I wear when I’m daydreaming of being a Parisian eating a Ladurée macaron on The Left Bank.

Balenciaga: One word comes to mind: FIERCE. This collection and the girl who wears it means business and you best not mess with her. She’s not afraid to show a little skin and be the center of attention because she knows that she’s earned the attention and she has a lot to offer the world, not to mention she plans on taking over the world. Love it!!

Vionnet: Something that I love about designers is their ability to take two completely opposite concepts and meld them together beautifully. Here, the two concepts that I see are: ancient civilizations and boudoir. Normally, those two don’t work together, but here Vionnet makes it look seamless and beautiful. From the sheer fabric, thigh-high stockings and garters that evoke a 20’s boudoir to the gold accessories and belts, gladiator sandals, and long flowy pieces that evoke an ancient civilization, the elements come together to create a beautiful collection that is wearable for today’s woman.

Nina Ricci: This collection has a heavy 40’s influence in the structure of the pieces, from the pencil skirts, to the jackets, to the knee length dresses. But, what makes this collection great is that the elements are made modern so that the pieces are wearable for today’s woman. The collection is so elegant and chic but also fun with its palette and prints.

Lanvin: My Paris Fashion Week recap wouldn’t complete without Lanvin! And Alber Elbaz definitely did not disappoint. This collection is what I imagine the most glamorous women of the world who jet set around the globe would wear. The palette is so deep and rich in the color and fabric, it just looks luxurious, let alone how they feel against your skin. Beautiful!

Haider Ackerman: This is such a beautiful collection because on the one hand the colors and fabric evoke a softness, a tranquility, a romantic notion, but the cuts and structure of the pieces evoke a sexy woman who is confident. Its a rather gorgeous collection that really highlights Ackernman’s talents.

Saint Laurent: Ahh, Saint Laurent. Always seems to redefine what a party girl would wear. This collection has hints of the YSL glory days of the 70s mixed in with 60’s elements but all modernized for the rock girl of today’s world who wants throw something fabulous when she hits the clubs and lounges, whether in Hollywood, New York, or London. Gorgeous!
