Paris Spring/Summer 2006 Wrap Up IV

They really do save the best for the last. The finale to the Spring/Summer 06 fashion marathon was magnificient. Everything was simply gorgeous. These collections are amongst my favourites this season-and that IS hard to top when I've reviewed countless fashion shows in the past weeks.

Yves Saint Laurent
I personally have a thing or two for YSL. I do believe that this is one of the brands I am going to drape myself in when I become a power woman. This season's collection was stamped all over with the message a power woman wants to give-strong but still feminine with the very defined waist belts and all that frill.

As if the models legs are not long enough, those high waisted cropped pants make them look even more impossibly long. I really should get my hands on one of those pants! And although I've never been much of a fan of the pencil skirt, I definitely see the merit of it here.

Although I must say that the balloon (or was it tulip?) skirt does not look very flattering on the model. What chances do us mere mortals have?

That black dress is very sexy. But the purple dress is just a mite too frilly for my taste.

Louis Vuitton
What is fashion week without Louis Vuitton? This season, instead of all the seriousness of elegance, the collection was wrought with street chic fun and youth.

I wonder how long the wait list for that gold chain collection of Vuitton bag is going to be.

The collar of that jacket is just soo cute with a little bit of purple peeking out. And I LOVE that swim suit. Its not blatant but still very sexy.

I adore the strapless dress. Its soo simple but soo stylish. And the loose fuschia shirt over the black dress is a perfect example of the tough street chic look I was talking about.

That is one useful chain necklace/belt. It transforms a perfectly bland outfit into something else.

Elie Saab
I've had a weak spot for Elie Saab ever since I spotted it on the haute couture runway. And her SS06 collection was romantic, ladylike and simply fabulous!

The flowers on the dress, on the jacket and on the straw bag definitely adds romance to the air.

The red dress is amazingly well structured and totally hot. And the silver on the flowy white dresses just makes it all the more whimsical. Simply beautiful, oui?

Valentino
I am head over heels in love with this collection. It was genius!

There were strong clean lines. That is a gorgeous pink coat (it also comes in white!), interesting how the flowery shaw is worn and that clean white shirt tucked into black pants look is ultra chic here.

Now THIS is how gold should be used.

And these dresses with the floral print, the gentle sway of the skirt and the sheer poofy sleeve is all just oh-so-romantic! I'm in love. . .

Elie Saab is a man, actually...I know, hard to believe, he has such a feminine, romantic touch! One of my faves.

I absolutely love the black YSL dress..it's so flowing and feminine, yet oozes sexiness too! The Elie Saab collection is also delish; leave it to a man to define what looks good on a woman!

Slightly off topic but does anyone know anything about the model Caroline Trentini? Seems like she was on all the runways and I like her style.

Caroline trentini is a 17 year old model from the south of brazil. she is quite a famous model in her country and also in the rest of the world i guess...this season she really was on all the runways: she has done 78 shows - 31 in NY, 21 in milan and 26 in paris! she lives in ny with other brazilian models. i think she's gorgeous but one of my favorites right now is the 15th solange wilvert, she was discovered only months ago (also in brazil) but went directly to the international market (last fall-winter season she closed the chanel couture show and now openned the dianne von furstenberg)

I think everythin thing here is over rated.Please go to Soho and check out the new talent.
I am a buyer from Spain and have be travelling around since 2000.I was currently in India and I cant begin to tell you how amazing a collection from a designer(who apparently doesnt like to talk much about his clothes).He lets his clients speak for him.His name is Gavin Miguel...Indian? I dont know.His collection is very friesh and whispy....
I looked at his line and I think he is a professional waiting to be picked by Europe.....If anyone has more details on him,please let me know.I would like to know his company or Agent to buy some of his clothes from his new line.

They call Solange Wilvert "the tall Kate Moss", not beacuse she looks like her but because she is probably the closest we haev to an actual supermodel besides Giselle and Daria Werbowy.
Personally...my favorite is Jessica Stam. Her eyes are so beautiful, and shes dating the love of my life Anthony Kiedis. im so jealous

Yes I truly believe that this man Gavin Miguel is absolutely fabulous....his cuts and colors are something no body in India is doing....he is a genious and yes there are 2/3 designers that try and ape him but he is far ahead of them...All the best to him.
