Review Of Paris Fashion Week F/W 2013

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton became more visually intriguing with designer Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection. Marc Jacob‘s Paris Fashion Week conquest showcased garments from one end of the runway to the other expanding the minds of its audience. Promoting intimacy and exploiting exhibitionism and voyeurism, the tone for a strong mix of structured shapes and lace-edged negligees was set and conquered fashion week. A runway that reminded you of the boudoir, Louis Vuitton brought its audience to a setting of a hotel with models donning Vuitton classics like the Speedy in well-suited lingerie.


Alexander McQueen

Shouting classiness, sophistication and vitality, Sarah Burton, designer for the late Alexander McQueen, made a roaring statement for Paris Fashion Week. The audience saw the collection in five stages: communion, nuns, cardinals,  popes and angels. Very poor and reminiscent of Catholicism, all garments were detailed with astounding embroidery and showed over sized silhouettes for Fall.



Intricacy was in all of the details for Valentino. Inspired by Vermeer's Girl With  a Pearl Earring,  Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli developed a beautiful collection for Fall. Absolutely striking, short alpaca coats and a stunning tulip embroidered lace gown to precedence on the Valentino Runway. 

Miu Miu

A contemporary approach defined the Miu Miu runway. Miuccia Prada made the season’s Miu Miu collection fun with polka dotted neckties and socks with stripes, which  made this the most playful Miu Miu collection yet. Very feminine, any woman would feel full of life after wearing a garment from  this collection.




French chic, the Hermes collection presented a runway full of oversized silhouettes, sharp lines, and textured monochromes. Although a very dark collection, the collection was nothing short of boring. Calf-length skirts were omnipresent on the runway and the different use of  fabric was impeccable. A runway to remember, Hermes put on a show.
