Designers who show at Paris knows how to take risks, to be adventurous and daring and stylish. Fashion Week was filled with barely sheer fabrics, relaxed tailoring, jewel tones rests alongside bright pastels and crochet lace took prime spot. With the dismissal of Galliano, all eyes were on Dior’s and Galliano’s namesake showings as well as Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen collection, all rising to the occasion. Highlights include Yves Saint Laurent’s stunning work to evening wear, Nina Ricci’s delicate gold leaf accents, Ackermann’s pseudo-fantasy safari and Elie Saab’s flawless gowns. Now to convince everyone I need a Balmain jacket to add to my wardrobe because they’re divine.
