Five days have pasted since the beginning of the PFW (Paris Fashion Week). I took the time this morning to review some of the runaways. So far, I have some favourites I want to share with you. I haven’t had the time to see all of them, except for the biggest ones and my usual favourites! The pictures are in slideshow format this time, you can play and pause to watch them at your pace.
Alexander Wang did an excellent job again at the head of Balenciaga. The collection is rich, elegant, chic and totally different from his own line. The details I like; his sexy wraps skirts, the stripe scarf and the elegant dress. I love the materials he used, it elevate each pieces of his collection. Chapeau Alexander Wang!
For daily followers, I’m sure you know that Isabel will be part of my favourite show!!! I’ll repeat myself, but I love the way she’s able to make all women look sexy in our clothes in her own unique way. This is not my favourite collection from her, I’m not sure that I like to see that many structured pieces from her. I usually love her fluidity, but still it’s a beautiful collection. What I like about it; her prints, inspired by her travels, the transparency and the knee high boots, so sexy!!!!
First, I have to confess that I didn’t know about this designer before this morning, and that I’m happy I discovered him. Andrew GN is a Singapore native now living in France. There is so much to say about his collection. It’s a beautiful mix between, Nordic influences, native American and Asian. I like the freshness of his line, the textures, the prints, the big Nordic sweaters and THAT electric blue whoa!!! I can’t wait to see his next collection!
I know it’s practically summer, and most of you don’t want to hear about Fall, but I had no choice then to share the new Pre Fall collection from Isabel Marant. With the beautiful Andreea Diaconu photographed by Josh Olins where we can feel the essence of Isabel Marant, casualty, fluidity and femininity.
Ok I’m not ready to hear about Fall either, but this collection totally represent me, but in a couples of month 😉
Finally we can see more of this long awaited collection. With big names like Milla Jovovich and Lou Doillon to present the first pieces, the wait until the 14th of November just got longer! A perfect mix of feminine, ethnic and street looks, like no one other than Marant can do!
Are you going to wait in line November 14th? For my part, Oh yes!!!
Here’s some of my favorites pieces
Want to know more about Isabel Marant?
Born in 1967, Isabel studied at Studio Berçot from 1985 to 1987. Two years later she created her first costume jewelry and accessories line.
In 1990, she launched “Twen”, a line of jersey and knitwear, which will become Isabel Marant four years later. In the Spring/summer 1995, she presented her first fashion show. In 2000, wanting to develop her brand further, she started Etoile : a more casual and affordable line.
“My brand has grown slowly and organically. I took the decision to build it step by step, in order to maintain full freedom and honesty in my work.”
Yes, this is really happening, I almost screamed when I heard the news this morning. Isabel Marant is one of my favorite designers, I love her sense of fashion. I have the feeling that when you wear one of her pieces, you have no other choice then to feel woman with the cuts, the simplicity, the confidence that it gives you. I love her ethnic prints, her pants and of course her sneaker wedge.
I like the fact that she can do a collaboration with a skate-brand and that she brings an urban feeling in her collections. A lot of people think that it’s going to be the most popular collaboration that H&M did until now. Believe me, I will do the line-up at 6am for this collection!
Marant will create a woman accessories and clothing line, one for teenagers and for the first time, a man collection for the big Swedish chain. The collection will be available in selected stores only November 14, 2013. Girls, do not miss this event haha!!
