Paris Fashion Week: Maison Martin Margiela, Balenciaga, Ann Demeulemeester

I'm not too sure about the actual clothes but the presentation was amazing.

Balenciaga is always one of the shows I look forward to the most. You can count on Nicolas Ghesquière to come up with something interesting and very fashion forward.
This collection definitely lived up to those standards - very futuristic and well done. I don't like it as much as I liked his previous collections though. I really disliked the pants shown with the first couple of look - they didn't seem well cut at all. Also the glitter dresses at the end were a bit unexpected and I don't really know if I like them. But Balenciaga is always a look that needs to grow on me a little.
All in all I do really like it. I love the mini dresses with the heart shaped applications - they probably make it hard to move your arms tough, haha.

Ann Demeulemeester

Perfection, I am in love with all of it.
The shapes, the details...everything is so pretty.

Paris Fashion Week: AF Vandevorst, Isabel Marant, Undercover

I liked the majority of this collection. The lingerie inspired pieces are so sexy yet the looks have something very innocent about them. Then there are the more masculine looks that I also really liked - especially in combination with those sexy tights.
I really feel bad for the models - that lipstick is soooo horrible. I get that they probably wanted to achieve some kind of "little girl that played with make up" look but I still find it unnecessary.

I really like Isabel Marant. It's so wearable and young - I somehow always enjoy it. But it's also never anything really extraordinary or innovative. I really like it though.
This collection is very diverse and has so many great individual pieces that could be worn in so many different ways. I'd love to own most of it...especially those boots. They are LOVE!

I didn't make these into a collage as they would've lost their "old painting"-feel that drew me to the collection in the first place. After taking a closer look I grew very fond of the all-white collection. It's all so beautiful!

Paris Fashion Week: Gareth Pugh, Balmain, Nina Ricci

Gareth Pugh kicked off Paris Fashion Week with a bang. No other designer would've been as capable of demonstrating the change from commerical Milan to visionary and innovative Paris as Gareth with this wonderful collection. All the clothes look like pieces of art and I'm already looking forward to seeing them in editorials.

Almost every fashion blogger has already raved about this collection so I'm not going to write much (and let the clothes speak for themselves). Only that I find all the looks incredibly hot and I'm madly truly deeply in love with those shoes. that's all. over and out. =P

Another fashion blogger favorite.
I fell in love with these light victorian inspired dresses immediately. What makes them even prettier to me is the contrast with the mesh tights and black shoes. It makes the dresses appear even more fragile and stand out.

Milan Fashion Week - Burberry Prorsum

My personal favorite collection shown in Milan this season is Burberry Prorsum


Christopher Bailey never disappoints me and it was no different this season. The collection seems like an extension from last season yet it is really different. While last season we got a polished young lady, the same girl has now discovered her "dark side". Like she went into the woods and got her pretty clothes wet and dirty. I love how in the collection luxury meets that worn/dirty/muddy look. It's interesting that he's doing something so dark and moody for spring but I actually like it. Also I think the styling is absolutely wonderful here, I really had a hard time choosing my favorite looks from the collection - I really loved every single one!
