Looking back at a few days in September. . .
Be sure to press FULL SCREEN. And if you’re thinking of walking all over Paris, be sure to buy:
I promised myself to take a day off, however, as I scurried to the Apple store to buy a new external hard drive replacement, there they were, the guys in black with their cameras and tripods on the stairs of Opera Garnier. I couldn’t refraid and joined the mob.
The Stella McCartney show was just ending and Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, stopped a few moments for comments.
Not much security for the models once the show is over.
And the grand finale: Kristin Scott Thomas, the actress and Parisian resident practicing her invisibility.
Word on the street: The Kardashian robbery is taking it’s toll already. Security at the fashion houses tight. Guards barricade the doors and purses, shopping bags are routinely examined before entering. The YSL showroom on Avenue Montaigne not so busy, Chanel on the other hand full of clients. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out in the coming months.
Spring 2013, a potpourri of styles on the runways: sheer plaids, soft florals, ruffles, pink and blue, soft pink and gold, metallic threading, grunge, fur, denim, tie-dye, checkerboard, honeycomb, sweet collars, black gauze, red leather, lace, knee-length skirts and dresses (finally), a solar panel runway, tweeds, boucles, aubergine, pretty pink, violet, stripy platform sandals, red shiny shoes, oversized pearls, tassels, bows, voluminous shapes. Something for everyone, anything goes? Room for you to put together your own sense of style. Be different, it’s all about attitude and carrying off what you wear proudly even if it’s nothing at all.
Add to that street fashion trends you’ll pick up on while strutting your stuff on your Paris outings guided by the “No Worries Paris” guidebook. Hipsters, minimalists, bohos, fashionistas, visitors from around the world: enjoy the show.
