Fashion weeks came to a close last week, ending in the city of lights – Paris, but I can’t move on without sharing of a few of my favorites. As they say, ‘better late than never’ (yet since it is technically the Fall 2014 collections I’m still ahead of the game, right?)
Phoebe Philo of Celine continues her brilliant streak with collections women relate to and are drawn to in droves. Philo’s emphasis was on the tenderness of the clothes. “I wanted them to feel touched by human hands,” she explained. Her vision resulted in a sensuous, wearable collection with the accessories adding a touch of whimsicality (origami-folded leather bags). See the entire collection here.
What can I say about Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli; they’re the heart and soul of the house and are truly masters of their domain. Continuing to obtain inspiration from the history of Italy they delved into Italian Pop art from the sixties and seventies. But the collection was about more than just that, they wanted to offer choice and variety to women. The designers showcased their couturier skills with evening wear — a significant portion of the collection. Embroidered butterflies, along with birds and roses over long chiffon dresses were standout pieces. See the entire collection here.
A few more of my favorite looks from Paris. Stay tuned for Haider Ackerman’s collection and more of my favorites.
