Dior Couture Spring 2013

DiorSS2013 360x540 Dior Couture Spring 2013

Dior Couture Spring 2013 runway, shown today during Paris Fashion Week, was fluid, fresh and yet still appropriately beholden to the archives; add in the popularity of newly installed designer Raf Simons plus a community anxious to see the storied Dior house return to respectability and it’s no suprise the critics are cooing, (not too mention stylists to the stars drooling). Which, good for Dior’s handbag and perfume sales going forward. They will probably improve compared to last year.

Miu Miu front PFW: Miu Miu Runway Spring 2013

During Paris Fashion Week, Miuccia Prada presented a rather wicked line for Miu Miu’s Spring 2013 collection. Coats made of latex, leather and denim over straight-line yet-lose-fitting skirts were heightened with paint-splash flower prints. Over-sized furs in various colors were more discreet, with colors made to blend with the clothing they covered. Once again a very female collection for the sophisticated women.

Take a glimpse at our favorite looks on the next page.

LVSpring2013 540x507 Video: Louis Vuitton Runway Spring 2013

Set in the Louvre, Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs collaborated with artist Daniel Buren to create a luxury-mall-inspired backdrop to a collection of mod-mod looks. The two setting meshed will with the fashion, both fondly looking back at brighter days for brick-and-mortar shopping and design. Special slickness points extended to Jacobs who references LV’s bread-and-butter, bags, by using the label’s trademark checkerboards as an apparel design theme.

Cathy Horyn vs. Hedi Slimane: Race To The Bottom

SlimaneLetter 540x361 Cathy Horyn vs. Hedi Slimane: Race To The Bottom

In a nutshell: NY Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn didn’t get invited to the Saint Laurent show held this week during Paris Fashion Week, subsequently she blew up the situation in her column, and then proceeded to blast the collection down to the ground. Apparently there is old beef between Horyn and newly-installed Saint Laurent designer, Hedi Sliman, so the lack of invite was not accidental. Slimane today responded with a Twitter letter (shown above) addressing Horyn. It reads:

Miss Horyn is a schoolyard bully and also a little bit of a stand-up comedian.
Insiders argue she is an average writer, and a bit provincial, but I disagree, she did some great things. Her biggest achievement so far is a book about Bill Blass, that I haven’t read. It might be terrific, and I’ll be happy to recommend it, if it helps the sales.
I also often hear that her sense of style is seriously challenged, providing that she is meant to be an authority in the village. This is totally irrelevant, no one has ever asked for her to be an inspiration to others after all, and likely it would never happen anyway.
Besides, and amusingly, her agenda is seriously thick and perfectly predictable. She is a woman on a mission, and this season she is on fire.
Miss Horyn also works for the New York Times, as everyone knows, where conflicts of interest might seem a little out of place and where being partial, or too friendly with the locals might not be an option.
In conclusion, and as far as I’m concerned, she will never get a seat at Saint Laurent, but might get 2 for 1 at Dior. She should rejoice. I don’t mind critics, but they have to come from a fashion critic, not a publicist in disguise. I am quite mesmerized she did get away with it for so many years.
And by the way come to visit our new website at ysl.com.
Sincerely yours.

And now Horyn has volleyed back, saying, “It’s just silly nonsense.” Well now that’s what you say! On the one hand I’m clapping my hands with glee as I plow through the popcorn, but on the other I’m thinking despite the old adage about any publicity, this is not a good look for either party.

Céline Spring/Summer 2013 Runway & The Shoes!

03 October 2012, 01.55 | Posted in Fashion, Runway Show | No comments »

 

Could it be that Phoebe Philo’s Spring 2013  for Céline mark a trend towards a more comfortable side of fashion? While we highly doubt that women will give up their heels in lieu of mink slides, the nonchalance of the looks is kind of ballsy and refreshing. While the runway show will highlights the very desirable apparel hop over on the next page for some furry shoe and my favorite so far, the red painted toes pumps! via Style.

ChanelHula HoopBagSpring2013A 540x450 Chanel Hula Hoop Bag Spring 2013

Always a wry one that Karl…in Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week runway show today, the designer showed a “Hula-Hoop” bag, one of such epic proportions, one can’t help but conclude it’s a statement that comments on the massive importance these day of bags as it relates to every accessory brands’ sales (category growth of bags is outpacing even shoes), while at the same time poking fun at the concept, which every designer is now chasing like five-year olds after a soccer ball.
