Paris Fashion Week Diary

Paris is shining these days and not just for the shows. Weather is sunny but super hot and we weren´t ready for these hard days walking around the city at 27 degrees. It´s just crazy. I took some pics with the phone so the quality is not so good. The first show we went was Dries Van Noten, one of my fav. The collection is just amazing, nice shapes and beautiful fabrics. He is a genius mixing prints, textures, silhouettes...

At 21.30h we went to see the new collection from Nicola Formichetti for Mugler. The show started with a Lady Gaga video made it by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Lady Gaga, close friend of Nicola, appears on the video with  two silver teeth shining at the front, singing an inedit remix  "Welcome to Paris fashion week, I am Mugler woman, don't fuck with me, don't fuck with Mugler".

Next day was Manish Arora´s turn, the new creative director of Paco Rabanne. Everyone were glad when saw spanish actress Rossy de Palma wearing a Manish dress and ordering the models to sit on their place like her "domina". New tech fabrics, shining Swarovski crystals and feathers were the basic elements for this colorful collection from the indian designer.

After Manish´s show we went to Saint Germain where each season Ann Demeulemeester shows her collection. I falled in love with her last proposal for next Spring / Summer 2012  inspired in marrakech style but on totally Ann´s way. Cool, chic and of course Rock´N´Roll as always.

Friday afternoon we went to see Margiela collection and well... After Diesel group fired the whole crew who was related to Martin, the seasons are not too cool, at least not cool as when Martin were in charge. Anyway we can see some ironic pieces with the essence Martin had. 

Woke up early to see Haider´s show. His collection is one of the most anticipated of the week. Waiting on the Bercy Stadium ´s door we saw the "new celebs" of the fashion system as Anna dello Russo Vs Grace Coddington, Franca Sozzani or Suzy Menkes. The show was just amazing with colorful pieces in chiffon, leather and liquid lamé. "Imagine" from Antony and the Johnsons, song from his last album, was the theme chosen for the designer while the models were walking on the catwalk. Chic, elegant and fresh.

At 14.00h we were waiting at Tuileries garden the Viktor & Rolf show. Was a nightmare wait, the sun was shining hard and weather was so hot. Finally we got in but inside was more hot than outside. The show started with two huge skirt where on top were  Brigitte singing their pop music. When I saw the show I just remember the Courtney Love video "Mono" where little girls came out under Coutney´s skirt. The collection was great,  funny and sooo V&R.

Last show of the day was Loewe. The spanish brand knows how to make beautiful pieces  mixing leather and silk. 40´s style is coming for next season and geometric prints were the key of this collection. Stuart Vevers is doing a pretty well done job with the iconic classic brand. Saskia the IT model right now opened the show.

Miu Miu was the last show we went. Miuccia is a great bussines women and everything she touches  become in cash. As always she does a new season her last colletion was pretty cool. Lot of trends for next summer were just in one show. We really love Miu Miu and we are not disappointed with this collection. So congrats Mrs Prada.
