PFW: Top PicksWednesday, October 02, 2013
With Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton, pro and cons of Heidi Slimane, Karl Lagerfeld's breathtaking Chanel art gallery, etc. Paris Fashion Week has been the most emotional of all fashion weeks. Here are my top picks, meaning, I'd LOVE to wear all those pieces.
I mean, who doesn't love Elie Saab? Not moving from his comfort zone of designing & choosing materials , this time he turned the catwalk into a magical blooming garden.
Sticking to its signature of feminine laces, Valentino choose to give an ethnic feel to their s/s14 collection. Well, I found some of their pieces are 'so D&G' with their famous sicilian inspiration, but still, Valentino is one of the most-talked show during PFW.
Feminine yet sophisticated.
This is it, the collection that made people talk down about Slimane. The Cut said: "Vulgar is acceptable, but ugly is not. Not even at Saint Laurent." Rough, isn't it? They said that since Slimane arrival at Saint Laurent, he's not sticking to YSL style legacy but to create looks that is far from it. His version of Le Smoking suit can be found in this collection and yes, I love it! See the complete collection here and let me know what you think!
Even if Rousteing doesn't do much experiment to his designs, Balmain is still my favorite!
His name may not be as big as other designers in PFW, but his sporty-luxe collection caught my eye instantly.
Gold sequins, Gold embellishment, Gold shoes, Gold everything!
Maybe Saint Laurent should consider him to replace Slimane as their head designer? Don't you guys think that his new collection is 'so YSL'? (ok I should stop saying 'so YSL, so D&G')
