Paris Fashion Week...

So far, so fabulous! 
We are loving what Givenchy, Ackermann and Lanvin have paraded on the Paris Spring/Summer 2012 runway! 
Here are a few of our picks:

Alber Ebaz for LANVIN is one of those designers who knows how to dress a woman and season after season he revitalises his signature look and statements ‘Modernity is beauty’.  Creating a powerful and modern woman with elements of sportswear, unfinished elements and chiffon fabric dresses pleated but still sheer and revealing.  

Haider Ackermann is one of my favourite designers.  The collection consisted of a mixture of relaxed tailored menswear with a subtle 80’s twist that Ackermann describes as ‘rockabilly Lord Byron’ with shapeless boxy jackets, oversized pants and models in flats.  With such a fantastic use of colour from rich khaki and orange silks, sheer royal blues, aubergine and blush tones, Ackermann may not have created wearable clothing with dresses that were completely see-through from the waist up but the colour palette was to die for and refined in a season that has seen an excessive use of prints!

 Riccardo Tisci for GIVENCHY has hit the spot for us: TAILORING! 
The designer used surfers and mermaids as influences but clearly this was not literal in any sense.  Jackets that focused on sharp and strong tailoring, contrasted with undulating lapels and laser cut outs in soft pinks, off white and army khaki greens. Curved hems, skin tight pants and a mixture of sheer overlapping fabrics were features of the collection and we also couldn’t go past the shark-tooth heels and sequined eye detailing.
