Long, boxy, loose fitted clothes can be found at Limi Feu. Dominant colors are grey, white, black and red. It made me wonder if these colors are going to be in every fall collection for 2011. I hope not.
Damir Donna also had loose designs walking down the runway and there was a veiety of color and a Japanese influence. There were great basics as well. I enjoyed the two tuxedo suits at the end . They were quite modern. Anne Valerie Hash presented a lovely collection made of beautiful rich fabrics. There were draping, loose fitted suits, tops, skirts, that were all well done and well made. This collection was comfortable and chic. Guy Laroche had quite a mixture of everything that was pretty but the collection was not cohesive. Rochas had a nice collection that had some chic in its sportswear. It has perfect retail power.
If you want Goth influenced clothes check out the Gareth Pugh collection. Black clothes kept coming out and pretty good ones and then a delight to the eyes! COLOR! There was a beautiful blue flowing dress that was heaven. I loved the black and gold group. The shiny metallic gold against the black leather will dazzle your eyes.
Dries van Noten was inspired by Diaghilev's Ballet Russes with a touch of Ziggy Stardust. The results were a wonderful mixture and combinations of colors, prints, textures, fabrics and shapes. Well done, Dries!!
My attention was kept by the wonderful collection of Carven by Guillaume Henry. I loved this collection. It had a wonderful esthetic. Fresh shapes and wonderful elements of design, color and style through and through. Could this collection make a woman bankrupt? Another job well done!
Carry on Paris!!
