Spring 2015 RTW : Paris Fashion Week : Part One

The finale of the big four is Paris Fashion Week. Here are some of the SS 15 collections! Balenciaga was a much better version of Alexander Wang, it's the one I like. It mixes sportiness with femininity and wearability. I loved the draped fabric alongside the mesh and perforated ones. The silhouettes were modern and I liked the muted pastels as well.

Fall 2012 RTW : Balmain

Rousteing has made Balmain luxe again.  Such beautiful and exquiste handwork and embroidery. Some of the pieces were very editorial but on the whole this collection was great and a definite improvement over Fall 2011. I loved the second look. With all the detailing, the roses gave it such a nice touch. The collection feels very architectural. The boxy and strong shoulder look of Balmin is recycled but is still present. The velvet pants mixed with the heavy work looked very rich. I like some of the quilted jackets as well. Fall 2012…Read more
