Crazy Accessories From Paris were seen at the shows for Fall 2016!
First was the oversized, and I mean oversized bag or whatever you want to call it from Balenciaga. Maybe it’s okay if you’re standing but what you you do with this thing when sitting or let alone be in a car is a mystery to me!
Actually Chanel had a boot with a plaid top on it that for some reason I liked! They showed it with the matching skirt and the whole look was pretty cute! On the other hand the Mary Janes with the ankle strap in white from Madison Margiela were ridiculous looking! The black thick sole and heel plus the huge buckle were really comical! They looked like Minnie Mouse shoes!
St Laurent did stilettos with a cute bow on the heel. How you drive in these things I don’t know! But at least they weren’t junked up like the backs of the Mui Mui heels. What were they thinking??
Crazy Accessories From Paris have to include the lug soled lace up boots from Louis Vuitton. Now these shoes are certainly not Crazy but definitely not the most flattering. The shiny black leather is accented with white shoe laces! But in saying all this they will probably be a hit!!
There were many fur purses, cute small bags, pretty hair accessories that will be integrated into Fall 2016 fashion but it’s the Crazy ones that always get the attention and are on the must have list! The more I look at that shopping bag purse from Balenciaga the more practical it has become!!
Willow Smith The New Face Of Chanel really made an entrance at the Paris show!
Willow Smith though only 15 really stole the show wearing a once piece body clinging onesy! She paired it with great boots, a terrific mess of hair piled on her head, a gold nose ring, blue eyeliner and her mother at her side! This young girl has it!!
Karl Lagerfeld dubbed her ambassador for Chanel and she dubbed herself the Chanel Ninja in her mesh jumpsuit! She has this innate sense of style and sports whatever she puts on with attitude and individual interpretation.
So her brother is in the ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton and Willow is now with Chanel! I think Will and Jada have done something right! Both of these teens have what it takes in the world of fashion! You remember who they are, what they were wearing and most importantly how they were wearing it! This is how Streetwear is conceptualized!
Willow Smith The Face Of Chanel will definitely put a new twist on the design house that brought us the famous tweed jacket that we all longed for! And our quilted bags with the double C clasp and gold chain! I look forward to see Willow transform fashion that we see for the more sophisticated and bring it to the young who add a little funk and imagination!! And I love that Karl Lagerfeld spotted her keen sense of fashion!! Good call!!
At Laurent Goes Couture all the way in Paris!
Hedi Slimane created a 42 piece collection that he showed in Paris. There was no theatrical show, music was absent and theatrics absent! Models walked down the gorgeous staircase as guests sat in their assigned seats that had their names on gold plated! How chic and how very serious!
So let’s talk fashion! The vibe of the collection was definitely 80’s and some was really what we wanted to forget! The tailoring and detail was all painfully haute couture but the actual designs just didn’t turn me on! I really admire the talent of Hedi Slimane but a heart shaped fur in fushia was a little too much even though I think was the hit of the show!
St Laurent Goes Couture was seen in the intricacy. However the one shoulder mini that had a huge thing coming out of one shoulder was nothing I would call stunning! And the shoulders on some of the coats looked like bad eighties! But in saying all that I saw the talent and mastery in his designs.
So do I think the micro mini with the emphasis on large poufs will be the fashion statement because St Laurent based the collection around them? Or bright colored strange fur wraps will invade the streets? Actually I do! When you see fashion in such a strong statement and pieces that make you remember I know they will translate to street wear! However a little less padding in the shoulders And please forget the dreadful hair!!
My question is whether this is the last show Hedi Slimane does for St Laurent??
