Nina Ricci Fall 2010

March 12, 2010 § 5 Comments

Wow, it really is “au revoir” Olivier Theyskens and “Bonjour” Peter Copping! I must say although I love the theatrical delight and the creativity of Theysken’s Ricci, I’m really enjoying the quintessential YSL meets Dior Parisian chic of Copping’s collection. Slip dresses/skirts, sexy yet appropriate grey skirt suit, tasteful appliqués on sheer tops and those stacked platforms are just deeeeeee-vineeeeeeeeeeeeee. If next season is as amazing as this one I’m most definitely adding Nina Ricci to my favourite designs list and Peter Copping to my favourite designers list!

Chanel S/S10

October 7, 2009 § 2 Comments

-sigh- You know, I’m not a massive fan of Chanel, never really have been and I’m afraid until Karl decides to do something drastic or retire and a new designer comes a long I’m afraid I never will be head over heels in love with Chanel. There hasn’t been a collection since S/S07 where I have loved everything in the whole show, there are always elements that I absolutely hate but also elements I just can’t help but fall in love with. usually it’s the clothes I hate and the shoes/accessories that I love but this season it’s the opposite! The clothes were stunningly intricate, but outrageously not over the top. There were just enough classic, and elegant pieces to balance the cute, sexy, sneaky (probably isn’t the right word) chiffon dresses and thigh split dresses. The wooden clogs made me sick in the stomach, and the stockings… arhg COPY CAT Nina Ricci Fall 2007 (here)! There was a surprising lack of bags which usually is a bit of a life-line for me…

To be fair, I probably should consider the performance side of things because Karl loves to put on a show (yes, at none other than the Grand Palais). The barn set was very impressive, Lily Allen did a little song, not to mention the huge audience of celebrities and apparently “at the end, Freja Beha Erichsen, Lara Stone, and Lagerfeld’s constant companion, Baptiste Giabiconi, were literally rolling around in the hay together” (source-style.com) that in it self would be worth seeing!

Lanvin S/S10

October 4, 2009 § 6 Comments

This collection was absolutely magnificent, everything was breathtaking. The peplum dresses, plisse jumpsuits, chain strap shoes, all of it, everything was deeply ‘lanvin’; sculptural yet feminine. Alber Elbaz is a genious! There really aren’t enough praise in the world I could type to describe how much I love this collection so why don’t you take a look for yourselves?

Balmain S/S10

October 2, 2009 § 2 Comments

I held my breath as I clicked the the “Balmain” link on style.it (style.com was behind, what do you do when the Americans are being slow? You turn to he French or Italians!), expecting a bad collection because of all this ‘Balmain vs Balenciaga’ talk (Balenciaga supposedly won, but I didn’t really like it so I was expecting the worst). Also I do generally expect a bad season after every few good seasons. Like this season; Oscar De La Renta, Carolina Herrera, Prada and Zac Posen all delivered collections that were not up to their usual standard.

I was delightfully surprised and breathed a sigh of relieve when the pictures loaded! It was just good old Balmain like we’ve been seeing for the past few seasons. Sexy, strong, but with a good splash of feminine! And my favourite ‘oldy, but goldy’ model Daria Werbowy opened(yes, I know she’s only 26 but she’s been on the scene long enough to be considered a oldy). There wasn’t anything ground breaking but that’s ok, because we love the Balmain look!

Chanel fw09

March 13, 2009 § Leave a comment

Chanel was so disappointing, but every few seasons Chanel does a shockingly fantastic collection and you fall right back in love with it. Maybe Karl’s starting to feel the Finacial Crash? Mehh probably not, it’s not a very Lagerfeld thing to do… Still… very disappointing, I know consistency is good but this was all quite plain; the coat dresses, satin pants and tweed suits. Well ok the printed, lycra body suits were a tad weird… in a bad way. -sigh-
