Paris Autumn/Winter 2005 Wrapup IV

We know that 4 wrap-ups for one week is a bit excessive, but we feel that Paris Fashion week would not be complete without featuring the houses of Louis Vuitton, YSL and Valentino. In fact, that would be a sacrilege to fashion! So let us pay our respects to these great houses. . .

Louis Vuitton
The show itself was stolen by the appearance of Uma Thurman (who is featured in their new Manhattan bag ad) looking radiant in a white frilly coat.

Back on the runway was the usual flair of sleek, feminine outfits one usually associates LV clothes with. Black is obviously the main color theme. Gorgeous but not that fascinating. But then again, clothing is not their forte.

Valentino
Now Valentino clearly knows what they're doing. Following their absolutely gorgeous Haute Couture collection, they have come up with yet again another gorgeous- this time wearable and chic- collection.

A very simple clean yet chic and fashionable look (I LOVE the white cardigan) perfect for a day out on the streets.

The modern office girl look. Modern in that it also encompasses the high tech fashionistas in us with that ipod hanging oh-so-fashionably on the waist.

And of course, the signature Valentino elegant, stylish gown.

Yves Saint Laurent
Stefano Pilati's second collection since taking over YSL from Tom Ford was yet again another disappointment. While he clearly does has an abundance of creativity and innovation with his poofy tulip skirts and other creations, the wearability of it is lacking. If even these stick thin models cannot manage to look flattering in them, what chances do us, the general population, have?

Junya Watanabe
In terms of creativity and innovation however, I am personally more impressed and attuned to the creations of Junya Watanabe. At first glance they are absolutely refreshing and on closer examination, very well cut and styled. One would actually look GOOD in these edgy refreshing creations! I especially love the leg warmer and flats all the models are sporting in the show.

Junya Wantanabe was indeed a refreshing find. The clothes have a touch of youth to it, so may not be suitable to everyone's taste, but I like it. Valentino is perfect for the fashionable OLs (office ladies), but not quite for me, yet. LV was fantastic as usual, Marc Jacobs obviously has a ridiculously busy life. YSL was err... no opinion.

I agree - the Valentino cardigan is fantastic!

And don't you think the YSL heart neckline is reminiscent of the dress Austin made on Project Runway? http://www.bravotv.com/Project_Runway/The_Designers/Austin/

That was one of my favorite designs of the show.

Junya Watanabe's clothes are amazing. Her clothes look like so much fun. It seems like she gets a lot of inspiration from street style. Very wearable too!

oh sweet buddah, Uma looks mindblowing in that coat. Not sure who can be prouder: LV for having her as their frontgal, or Uma as having LV as her line of choice.

Besides, LV's fall collection reminds a bit of the old sovjet regime. I can't help it.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
