Paris Fashion Week SS08 Wrapup III

This is the last S/S08 Fashion Week wrapup! Fashion Week at Paris is over. Thankfully, the collections shown in Paris proved to be much more loveable than the ones in New York.

Yves Saint Laurent
I love this collection. The clothes are structured and looks have very definite shapes. Even the shiny, cap-like dark wigs add structure to the whole look. Everything just looked seriously chic.
The show starts off with inspiring work-clothes. The jackets on the left and right models look like fantastic new work jackets (as opposed to the normal blazers.)
Pilati showed both pencil skirts and A-line skirts, which is great for women with different body shapes. I love the sleekness and colour blocks of the whole-grey outfit on the left. And the blue in the underside of the skirt and jacket provides great contrast to the dark grey look.
And finally, the party dresses. I love the contrasting colours on the yellow and black dress. And the two dresses on the left make such fabulous cocktail dresses. Sigh, just imagine wearing them to a uber-glam party...
Miu Miu
All I can say is, I need some time to digest this collection. It must be so far into the future that I can't completely comprehend these looks. Although I can say for sure now that I am not a fan of those swimming-cap-looking hairwraps.
Lanvin
A pretty, sensual tough chic collection. The outfits look surprisingly wearable (if you have the budget and event for the dresses of course.) Bulky jewelry, especially necklaces, seems to be a theme, as well as extremely smoky eyes.
The show started off with a gorgeous range of LBDs. Note the one-shouldered tops/dresses.
Elbaz uses silk tops with pleats to add sensuality to the otherwise structured looks. Apart from the jewelry, shiny threads and crystals were used in the dresses to make them look dark in a brilliant way.
And even more dresses. Perhaps Lanvin's customers need more dresses than other types of clothing?

YSL is very work oriented. Had it been more affordable, I'd totally buy it!!!

I really think designers and retailers are trying waaaay too hard to bring back the one shouldered look. It's just not working.

I love, love, LOVE the YSL collection. It took me a while to get into Pilati's SS08 collection, but I instantly fell in love with this one. The tailoring is to die for. I especially love the swishy dark coats with the coloured underside. This is a strong feminine collection, with emphasis on the hourglass figure, with a hint of masculine severity that makes it modern and chic for autumn/winter. How can you not love this man's talent?

I like Lanvin's focus on one-shouldered dresses; I think it's very glamorous and sexy. I loved the chunky jewellery because, while it was big, it was still classy.

As for Miu Miu, I can safely say that I personally would never wear that collection, and I really do not know who would. Possibly the Olsen twins ... They're so fashion-forward that they're light years ahead of the rest of us mere mortals. I guess you could wear that stuff around the house ... but who on earth would wear thousands of dollars while vacuuming and cooking dinner? Someone like Tinsley Mortimer, I guess ... but then she surely has someone vacuum and cook for her anyway ...

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
