Paris Spring/Summer 2006 Wrap Up II
The flowy, loose theme continues to dominate the runway. And Paris continues to delight and suprise fashion lovers of the world. Here's a review of the latest offerings.
Riccardo Tisci's collection for Givenchy was. . interesting to say the least. There were a few very chic and stylish pieces that I loved, like these. .
These two are very pretty and ladylike.
And these two are just very casually classy.
And then there are ones that are waay too structured and nurselike for me to comprehend.
And this one, I have no comment about cause I really can't see the outfit very well. But I just found it really fascinating how she can sit at such a perfect right angle.
I also just LOVE it when I come across collections I like by designers I've never heard of.
It good to see the flaired tiered skirts (prob because I just bought one recently). And matched with that blouse, it perfects the victorian look.
And these two are just soo pretty in a ballerina-like way. I'm a sucker for ballerina-like outfits!
Her collection was the epitome of casual elegance. Just take a look.
See how everything is so effortlessly casual but still soo elegant looking? I just ADORE the nude dress (or whatever it is).
And for semi formal cocktail parties, these outfits are perfect (esp the gorgeous dress on the left).
Her evening dresses were just divine. The long flowing skirt cascading around the model is positively goddess-like.
This summer I came across a collection of clothes from the Lagerfeld Gallery. And I must say, for clothes that resemble Mr.Lagerfeld, they are outrageously overpriced. This collection is actually quite passable and only slightly resemble Karl.
The holes on the waistband of the skirt to reveal the shirt underneath is a very inspirational indeed.
And these dashes of rich color is not a bad touch either. I esp like the high waisted blue skirt on the right. The belt outlining her waist makes it that much more feminine.
These two are actually very classical Chanel looking dresses. I like that.
I want to cry. What was Karl thinking? I know being loose and casual is the trend this season, but can he not, like everyone else, do it in a stylish, elegant and Chanel manner?
The one on the left looks looks like a frump. And the red suit look is just not very flattering.
Please tell me that those tight bicycle shorts are not in fashion. And what is that thing she's wearing over a perfectly ok looking outfit?
This just looks very strange *sniff*
Thank god there were the few pieces that still had a semblance of what Chanel is supposed to represent in it. Like this perfectly classical black dress.
And these more elegant looking dresses. In fact, the black one is really quite gorgeous! Sigh. . if it weren't for these few pieces, I'd truly be very devastated with what has happened to Chanel this season. I hope this is just an abnormality and not the start of a whole new direction.
