Resort 2010 Made in Paris
Follow-up with the Resort collections. Did you really think I would not mention the Paris collections? I revealed the truth: this season, I particularly loved the US Resort collections.
But, I did mention my fondness for the Chanel Venitian Cruise here, and there are a few other Parisian names that I would like to highlight, because although it is a different spirit from the NY light and airy spring collections, there is still creativity and quality. Paris is just darker, and reminds me more of a glam-chic opulent dinner than a summer brunch. It isn’t about staples with Paris Resort, more about show, and being the belle of the ball.
A smaller but careful selection of the best of Paris Resort 2010:
Celine – THE much-anticipated return of the house, under the artistic direction of icon Phoebe Philo did not disappoint. Beauty made of satin tux, trenches, leather handbags and leather skirts, all in shades of tan, beige, black and grey.
Lanvin – Fun and luxury embodied. Playful accessories and colours for a happy mood and to impress the guests.
Balenciaga – great detailing, and one of the most couture and mature collection of this Resort season. Still wearable tough. Coup-de-maître from Monsieur Guesquière.
Vuitton – Petite princess is playing Lolita by the beach and throwing her shoes away at her friends’ party.
Other than that, Cavalli was not bad at all really with great styling and colourful separates. AND Burberry was flying the flag for British high-end fashion with my favourite collection from Mister Bailey EVER.
