Paris Fashion Week: Spring 2010

Those of you who watch Rachel Zoe’s reality show know her famous phrase “I die!” when she see’s something beautiful.  I would say this sums up the incredible fashion displayed at Paris Fashion Week.

When you review the images from the events, one thing to keep in mind is that when executing a fashion show, it’s necessary for the designer  to juggle demonstrating their creativity, pleasing retailers and entertaining the audience.  This may explain why we see some really crazy displays making their way down the runway.

That being said, here are a few shows that I thought were noteworthy.

Valentino, the house best known for their signature red dresses, are paving a new path now that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have begun designing for the luxury house.

The collection embodied several trends that we can expect to see come spring: ruffles, sheer fabrics, shorts and lace.


Legendary milliner Phillip Treacy took his famous hat making skills and transferred them to stunning effect with the lace wings on the incredible shoes below.

John Galliano is well known for his theatrical styling and entertaining shows. This collection is no exception.  Once again you will see an abundance of lace and sheer fabrics with an infusion of colorful accents.  It was difficult to focus my attention to a single piece in this collection—inspired by early Hollywood stars such as Mary Pickford, with the artistic (and dangerously spiked) platforms that competed for ones attention.

Finally, with all the sheer materials draping the models, you’ll understandably gravitate to the lingerie inspired collection by Jean Paul Gaultier for a little Puritanical privacy.


Further, the collection epitomizes creativity over wearablity with the maternal looking olive green bustier below along with the commando style belt.
