As showing on the very last day of fashion week, Marc Jacobs closed w. The show was staged in what looked like the corridor of a hotel to where models appeared from different doors one at a time in short cut wigs. To find out what hid behind the doors, besides luxury bags from the house, could only be answered with ones imagination, but judging from the collection, it might have been the boudoir of the models. The decadence of the dusty coloured clothing could be seen even through the imagery, there were lace negligees along with other typical sleepwear worn effortlessly under oversized jackets and luxury fur (even Marc Jacobs himself wore a printed pyjamas from the menswear collection) that formed romanticised interpretation of the feminine.
Day two for our team on the ground was beautiful, with the sun shining over Paris bringing the streetsstyle to full bloom. The light turned the streets outside Kenzo so buzy it resembled a photo-studio, coffee drinking included, and the Tuileries for Chloé into a catwalk!
Highlights include Robyn, Kyle Andersen, Denni Elias and picture proof of Anna Dello Russo’s famous “one outfit per show” policy!

Sarah Burton was in her late pregnancy when they created the colletion for autumn, and so it is simple logic that they would present a smaller collection, only comprising of ten looks, and especially if each look required two weeks devotion. The more emphasize and work put into each piece that is, and usually the craftsmanship never disappoints. As for the aesthetics, a certain amount of purity and crispness added with 16th century details was crafted into the usual more cutting edge and experimental collections, which accordingly could be explained by the inspiration source being Catholicisism. She hence divided the looks into five characters of her catholic church (of two each), communion, nuns, cardinals, popes, and angels.
This Chanel collection is kinky to say the least. Lagerfeld has taken grunge to a new level making it almost costume like. As always the classic pieces are exquisite, but it would be quite surprising if the designer failed something that has been made about a hundred times. The added elements such as the latex and chains are to much, and not tastefully made coming from a venerable fashion house such as Chanel. Anna dello Russo must be extatic though…
Not too surprising, Acne Studios first show in Paris had the fashionistas coming out of the woodwork. The best of the Scandinavian fashion set as well as some of the most influential international tastemakers were there. Among the guests were Clémence Poésy, Robyn, Hanneli Mustaparta, Elin Kling, Justin O´Shea and many more. Not sparing any expense Acne showed at the legendary Grand Palais south-western wing.
