Just a Hint of Paris Fashion Week
The presentation of Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections are being shown around the world right now, and presently it is Paris fashion week. The excitement of spring collections, bring fashion lovers, as my self, to tune in any way possible. I am not lucky enough yet to sit front row or any row of that matter, at any of these shows so I use my front row seat from my handy computer to make sure I see all of these beautiful collections. Chanel is my favorite designer and if I don’t see any other show I MUST see Chanel’s collection! Karl Lagerfeld is a genius in his craft and carries on Coco’s legacy greatly. Here’s a small preview of some of my favorite looks of the designers presenting their collections in Paris Fashion Week.
Chanel spring and Emanuel Ungaro ready-to-wear collections.
Staying true to the the classic look, Chanel showed classic elements to their style using tweed in blazers, skirts and pants while also giving a mood and feel of art as a main inspiration. Colors such as pink made quite the presence along with asymmetrical and cropped cuts in several looks. Oversize pearl necklace’s accented the looks also. Emanuel Ungaro kept the trend of prints ongoing while adding ruffles and and pops of color to the looks. Flowy maxi skirts and dresses with high slits were also a hit.
Valentino and Valentine Yudaskin spring ready-to-wear collections
Valentino brought the feel of tribal and peasant to the runway this spring. Soft elements of lace and chiffon kept the use of rather dark tones of color light. Wide leg pants, long vests and high waist shorts made their way down the runway, with prints of leopard and tribal inspiration. Valentine Yudaskin kept it regal in style and drew the eye with gem colors of gold and turquoise. I die for gowns and I was definitely giving around of applause to the closing look which was a beautiful gold and white gown, with sequined design that highlighted the hips and shoulders and soft white chiffon at the bottom. Baroque prints also graced the runway.
Saint Laurant and Givenchy spring ready-to-wear collection.
Saint Laurant kept it sleek and sexy with a mix of 80’s and 90’s inspiration in the designs. Dark color with a pop of pink and teal were a hit, with structured looks in the blazers with cut off sleeves and exaggerated shoulder pads. Blazers tops and jumpsuits were also presented with high skirts. Givenchy, the great designer, focused on the body and draping through out their looks. Jersey, silk, sequins and sexy is the feel I received from this collection.I loved the use of draping along with the use of different silhouettes such as asymmetrical cuts.
