Dare I say it? Deep breath. Here’s my confession: I was not a fan of this past Paris Fashion Week. The runways were spewing with shapeless, colorless garments and, in my opinion, were often similarly bereft of imagination. ‘Course, not everything was like that, and in rooting around a bit, I found some shows whose more lively and tailored looks pleased my palette. Let me know what you think of these picks, and give your two (or five) cents on the rest of the designs that rollicked down the runways–did you dislike them as I did, or did you love the fashion zeitgeist?
If you’re gushing over that gorgeous cocktail dress like I am, you’ll be equally smitten by these black and white beauties: the On the A-List Dress, Swooning Over You Dress, and Be Still My Heart Dress. Or, if you’re bowled over by that maxi’s patterned, greyscale satin, check out the Monochrome Dream Dress.
I can always count on Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to fuel a little fun into fashion. If you like his art- and culture-inspired pieces, check out the Hands On Top (practically a sister to that menswear suit) and the pop art-inspired Blushing Bananas Dress. If his dressy plaid is what makes you mad, you’ll probably adore the Invite You Over Dress.
Feeling thrilled by these looks of achievable elegance? I know I am. Looks like some pretty paisleys and sweet staples are in order. Try the Shoulder to Share Dress, Crinkle in Time Scarf in Flan, Braidest Belt Ever in Grey, Point of No Return Heel, and Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Cambridge University.
Yes, Alexis Mabille! I love the colours, the patterns, and the layers.
I’m really liking the looks by Colette Dinnigan. The floor-length gray ensemble vaguely reminds me of something you could find in My Fair Lady!
I love your picks. I love the rich colors that Colette Dinnigan and Alexis Mabille used. Now I have two more designer to be on the look out for. Thanks!
My pleasure! And glad you like the picks!
Wow wow wow! There are definitely some dreamy garments in there! I adore the A line dress by Collette! Great picks modcloth! x http://www.lostinthehaze.com
I love that you can admit that you didn’t like the show! Just because it is on the runway doesn’t mean it looks good, and thanks for setting things straight! And those last three looks are simply amazing.
Thanks for the kind and wise words. Yay!
I love that glossy satiny long skirt with the belt…to me that looks very 1930s.
Thank you for these great collages! Collette is my favorite – so feminine. I love the metallic blue dress.
I would wear the A-line Collette Dinnigan in a second! It’s absolutely gorgeous.
That A line skirt is beautiful. I love the length. I’m 5’11” and find all of the skirts (incl. A line) way too short. I love that Collette has brought back the longer length (on the knee) A line. Doesnt look lady-like at all when your skirt finishes half way up the thigh!
We need more of it!!!
That first A-line dress is lovely! I really like all the Alexis Mabille clothes, too.
I love Collette Dinnigan’s black dress! i love lace. and i love modcloth’s sugestions to encapsulate the style!
Ohhh wow..I adore vintage, I discovered this today…!!! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWMLxrKPZn8
