CHANEL SPRING 2014
Before this Paris Fashion Week, which ends today, I cannot remember when was the last time I enjoyed a Chanel show. Maybe back in 2010 or 2011. Out of old habit I viewed the show and by look four or five I was already yawning (how often can the classic Chanel suit be redone?). Then something happened towards the end of the show, something wonderful. All of sudden I felt inspired. I was even smiling. Luckily Scott Schuman of the Sartorialist posted two of my favourite outfits. His pictures are more interesting than the usual runway photos.
DRIES VAN NOTEN SPRING 2014
You know all about my love for Dries Van Noten. Despite the frills (not for me) and occasional weird styling (at least for me), there were plenty of items in his spring collection that I really liked.
Still the sheer length of the show allowed for a complete picture of Van Noten’s aesthetic—his way of hinting at the folkloric and ethnic and the kind of women who’ve always wanted to weave world-traveling souvenirs into their wardrobes. “I thought about how Tamara de Lempicka, Loulou de la Falaise, and Charlotte Rampling dressed,” he said. “And I wondered how they’d do it today.” That would explain the translations of peasant smocks in natural, undyed fabric and lace, and the elaborate tasseled-carpet-shoulder bag which lent its influence to tassel-fringed knits further down the line.

Les Arts Décoratifs from 28 February to 14 August. This can only mean a trip to Paris next year.
STELLA MCCARTNEY SPRING 2014
My knees went weak when Stella showed this navy suit on the runway in Paris. Want it!
BOTTEGA VENETA SPRING 2014
Such a chic look from the Bottega Veneta collection presented at the Milan Fashion Week. One can always count on Tomas Maier for something classic. I wouldn't mind having that skirt in my wardrobe.
