Zee Fashionista: Oui Oui Paris


Oui Oui Paris

Highlights from Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011

Elie Saab

This time around, Lebanese designer went Parisian with his beautiful A/W collection aptly titled Belle de Jour. It was as you always expect from Elie Saab -  form-fitting, perfectly tailored A-line skirts and dresses, belted dresses in hues of plum, dark red, grey and black. He definitely knows how to dress a woman and I'm sure any woman would find just the right ensemble for her in this collection. My favourite is Anja Rubik's black long-sleeve sparkling dress, with the super-cinched waist. So pretty!

Louis Vuitton

There is one thing that you can never doubt with Marc Jacobs - his collections always take you on a journey. Judging from the chic set, we were probably in a expensive 40s hotel, with 4 working lifts, porters to boot and some escort-type girls in "arch provocateur mode".  

The collection explored the meaning of fetishes with the likes of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss (finally, yay!) wearing long pencil skirts, blouses, sculpted jackets and French maid outfits accented with latex and bisected by huge, shiny belts in cordovan. And who can forget the kinky lace-ups, hand-cuffs and rubber dominatrix boots. So, so chic.

I love how Karl Lagerfeld marries the mood and themes of his collections with dramatic sets. He's had huge blocks of hay, glaciers (ok, ice) and now the room was literally smouldering with the runway lined with hot coals in a fog-engulfed forest.

The collection was dark with the models prancing around in destressed, tattered and grungy ensembles in a mesmerising, post-apocalyptic-type scenario.There was a Gothic twist to the clothes with masculine frock coats, floor-length capes, jackets, knit sheaths and tunics (in the classic Chanel tweed, of course) paired with lace-up shoes or heavy, spike boots. I am in love with Karl's supernatural, dark vision.
