Aside from all things Nutella crepes, croissants, and cafe living, Paris Fashion Week has been doing me well. The shows have been stunning and the spring weather is always a nice treat. Today I decided to go head to toe Barbara Bui; I’m all about the boho meets hippie 70’s vibe at the moment. I’m loving toting my OLYMPUS PEN camera around town and playing
with all the different filters and settings. It’s cool to be on the other side of the camera, and taking this one around town feels like an added accessory in the mix. It’s also really easy to use and play around with, and I’m convinced it’s now officially part of my attire and daily outfit 🙂 From behind the scenes shots to selfies, and shows, everything was a good a excuse to use my camera E-PL7.
Also, OLYMPUS is doing a pop up gallery in Paris for everyone to test drive the new Olympus PEN camera, experiment with the various lenses and ask questions, and even rent it! You can visit the gallery everyday until March 11th from 11h-18h at 25 Bd Sébastopol, 75001, 5th floor.
About my favorite shows….
Barbara Bui’s refreshing collection will make you want every single piece. There was just the right amount of thigh seeping through several pieces, the perfect cream coat you wish you had a month ago, and great meshes of python and leather for bolder pieces. Probably one of my favorite shows…
Elie Saab never fails. This show had some kind of darker, romantic vibe with fuller skirts, lots of leaf print, gorgeous bold hues including red and olive green, a few intense vibrant prints, and the perfect amount of sheer and fur.
Guy Laroche had some heavy metal detailing with metallic, paper-thin leather, seriously printed coats, thigh high slits, lots of belts and a punch of edginess.
Mugler brought in some gold-coated leather and small detailed bits on the dresses, a nice touch of sheer throughout, and bright whites contrasted with strong metals. The cutouts were sexy and different, showing just the right amount without bordering provocative.
Anouki is innovative in all its textures, prints and styles. The showroom visit let me explore the collection in close detail and really take it in. Woven white jackets, funky socks (you know that’s one of my favorites…), and nice floral details were eye-catching and definitely added to the wish list.
Atelier Kikala merited a visit as well, and the deep green army coat seemed like a great (and necessary) addition to any closet. I loved the pastel palette (cotton candy anyone?), it felt flirty and feminine. For a relatively new brand that has only been around for three years, they have mastered the art of clothing.
Paul Andrew latest collection was breathtaking with a large range a of style mostly inspired by NYC architecture and lights…what’s not to love?!
Annelise Michelson always marvel us with strong and powerful pieces, this time inspired by broken chains…
Voilà, stay tuned for other stories! xoxoN
