Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 Review

The line up for  Paris Fashion Week seems more extensive than any other. We certainly cannot present all the designer shows here, but will try to feature as many as possible.

Louis Vuitton
Wow, what can I say? Louis Vouitton presented squares and checks  of varying sizes. This was  in addition to the line's  black and white palette as well its sprig of  floral.


This year marked the 60th anniversary of the Chloe fashion house and exemplified romance as every frill beckoned onlookers to swim  in their wild waves. A light color palette with highlights of black and navy made this runway aesthetically pleasing to the eye and completely unforgettable. Notably, an ethereal love affair was the overall look for the Chloe Spring/Summer 2013 season.

The entire Balmain show was a “wow” factor for onlookers as the runway was audacious in silhouette, color and print. Paying homage to the ‘90’s silhouette, strong shoulders were omnipresent while ‘80s bold graphics and prints turned heads. Nothing short of sexy, midriffs and chests were exposed which heightened the sex appeal of the collection.

Traveling in style, each Kenzo model wore safari-inspired clothing as if they were headed to the jungles of Asia. Field jackets were a significant clothing staple for the collection as were unexpected psychedelic colors that finished the show. A true runway that had the ability to pique interest among onlookers - the runway was eclectic and daring.

Jean Paul Gaultier

We were transported back to an era of 80's pop stars with this collection. The drama inspired by these pieces both delighted and perplexed.



With a predominantly black collection Lanvin traded the feminine, for a more masculine, edgier look which featured mainly pants .  A dash of emerald tones awakened this darker collection.

Elie Saab

Lace and gross grain spoke of  a ladylike spring for Saab. It was a pleasurable disruption to the business like pieces also featured in the collection
