Paris Fashion Week?

A  month has past and the seasons have changed, welcome fall. You are welcome! I thought it only appropriate to rate my top 5 from Paris Fashion Week due to the loss in time and lack of posts. Ready, Set, Go:

 Paul & Joe
One word, love. Between the bright geometric prints and fresh stripes, it's clear this Parisian designer had a clear understanding of Spring.  These colorful touches with the cooling effects of white and turquoise made for a fun yet sophisticated collection.

 Tom Ford
Very easily and very wearable, I wish i could own this entire collection. Heavily influenced by yummy neutrals, the small pops of color and mixing of textures made this collection my number two pic. Come on look at how easy it would be to throw on a open stitch knit maxi skirt and cozy knit cut & sew sweater.

Valentin Yudashkin
All business with hints of sex; Yudashkin really played to the natural curves of the feminine physique.  Most silhouettes were framed in white, but the bold pops of red, navy, and snakeskin make for a sexy yet reserved collection. 

Paco Rabanne
Costume designer gone runway, Rabanne combined my favorite elements into one cohesive collection. Game of Thrones, (think Khaleesi) meets Xena Warrior Princess meets a day in South Beach Miami.Noticeably random, the quirkiness of the silhouettes, textile mixing, and low neck lines makes this an absolute fave of yours truly.

Jean-Charles De Castelbajac
By far the least cohesive collection; to put in lamest term dark meets light in this springy-fall collection. If a collection could show the transition of the seasons, Castelbajac would take the gold. Luckily I love every little bit of it. from the layered blacks and leathers to the dripping paint spot prints, it all somehow works. Side note see the placed mirror image pants, that's a huge trend this season, should you be bold enough to take heed.

Otherwise keep it simple like me and add a statement with mismatched clothing and bold jewelry. With that ends my trivial recap of Paris slash Spain slash somewheres fashion week, I'm now rambling...

XOXO Chantel
