Paris Fashion Week SS08 Wrapup I

Paris! Exciting week this is. I know some of you aren't fans of fashion shows (or the posts) but I really do need to blog about the shows to let my brain sort out what trends will be coming up. Besides, sometimes it's nice to just stare at pretty clothes...
Balenciaga
Ah, the show we've all been waiting for. This season is all about the flower prints on Balenciaga's bold silhouette. Truth is, when you first look at them, you're going to think that Ghesquière simply draped old, colourful curtain cloth onto the models to form that Balenciaga silhouette.
Gosh, everything is so luxurious. Look at the bold prints and colours, and that amazing silk!
SO pretty. Obviously I have no plans to wear huge shoulder tops/ dresses come spring, and yes, they are not your everyday silhouette, but the more I see this collection the more I love it!
The show ended with some plainer, but no less structured and brilliant clothes.
Karl Lagerfeld
I'm usually so-and-so on Karl Lagerfeld's collections, but I really like this one.
These clothes are young, edgy with a hint of elegance.
I love how sweet yet edgy Vlada (left) looks in the black and white outfit. And I really want the white outfit in the middle. I still can't tell if it's a dress or a top plus skirt. The oufit is so simple, yet with subtle details. Notice that there is more than one material used (esp the top part.) These clothes have motivated me to check out Karl's collection next time I'm in a high-end department store.
Valentino
This Valentino show made all the headlines because it's the Valentino's final ready-to-wear show.
The show was filled with his signature elegant dresses.
Such pretty black and white dresses. Can you imagine, you can buy one of these and still wear them every year onwards and they'll not go out of style.
In the usual Valentino fashion, the last few dramatic dresses had lot of frills and layers. The next thing everyone would be intersted in is what direction Valentino's sucessor's would take the House to.

the valentino collection is beautiful, and even KL'sis quite nice.

but balanciaga's collection is AWFUL. i like ready-to-wear, i like haute couture, but honestly this balanciaga collection is like a mish-mash of the two and i dont see the appeal at all.

I'm not a fan of Balenciaga at all. The prints are very grandma like.

I think Balenciaga did a fabulous job on this. Every piece of apparel is like a small piece of art. Beautiful!

I've always loved Balenciaga. When I first saw the thumbnails of the first few outfits on style.com I thought they were cheongsams!

I love reading runway posts. They can give you another view on the shows. You did a great job here and I pretty much agree with you on all the collections. Balenciaga was amazing, I loved the floral prints and the strong silhouette. Karl Lagerfeld was great too, and I tought Valentino was okay. The collection was too girly for my taste. The colour pink and big frill gowns are not my cup of tea.

I too LOVE the runway posts, they give you a great idea of what a collection was like with only a few standout pieces instead of having to browse through every single outfit.

Oh! and this is Karl on the Balenciaga collection from Cathy Horyn's blog:
"Lagerfeld didn’t think much of the Balenciaga prints. I saw Lagerfeld last night at Chanel. “Prints are for middle-aged women with weight problems,” he told me."

Keep up the good work!

I like the Karl Lagerfeld collection better than his Chanel collection. The Chanel was Ghastly.
