Paris Fashion Week: Ultra feminine allure at Valentino

6 Oct

It’s becoming impossible to have a favourite at Paris Fashion Week! It almost looks like the loveliest were saved for the last few days.

The Valentino collection was everything soft, delicate, pure, whimsical and feminine. Prevalent colours we’ve seen in most Paris collections were present, black, white, nude, blush pink and a touch of brights. But this collection was the ultra feminine take; full of pretty, graceful and very wearable pieces. It had an effortless,understated, almost natural elegance, very Parisian chic. There was a generous helping of frills, slim belts and subtle bows. I especially loved the black lace and chiffon over nude layers of tulle. And of course the long sleeved maxi dress in Valentino’s signature red colour. Gorgeous, gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Every single piece has a wanted sign slapped on.

Paris Fashion Week: Sooooo elegant Haider Ackermann

3 Oct

I was waiting for Haider Ackermann with bated breath and it was definitely well worth the wait. There was a quality about his collection that made me want to be silent and just stare. It was sleek, elegant, luxe and soooo polished.

I have to say though that some pieces in the collection were a tad too showy, like ‘hey, watch the slits Mister!.’ But having said that, the combination of silks and chiffon with leather, the luxe way he injected jewel tones – plush emerald, electric blue, red – into black, was amazing. And that bow detailing on the back of the jackets? Speechless! Gotta have one of those jackets.

Overall, he does an amazing work with details. I love how he works with fabrics, the intricate knotting, the unusual bows. Viva Haider Ackermann, you’re da man.
