Hakaan Yldirim

Hey ladies! I’ve been away this past week… Forgive me! My parents are in town (from France) and I had very little time to do what I got to do. Anyway, while I was surfing on the web this morning, I came accross this new Designer Hakan Yldirim from turkey, and shame on me for… More

Alexander McQueen Fall-Winter 2010/11

Before committing suicide on February 11th, the English Designer had practically finished 16 silhouettes of its Fall-Winter collection 2010-2011. Judging by the magnificence of the models, it was a Haute Couture collection. Inspired by the historic and religious representations of the Middle Ages, McQueen manages to create a sacred dimension to his designs. Imperial and poetic, the last garment (coat of feathers covered with gold with a high collar) crystallized the imagination and technical know-how of the Genius, too early gone.

Karl Lagerfeld invited his guests in the North Pole for a spectacular show in the Grand Palais. This fall and winter collection 2010-2011 is dedicated to furs. However, while at Fendi (for whom Karl Lagerfeld also works), they are all real, at Chanel, this season, they are all fake! When they don’t recover boots, furs are sown, knit, woven in the tweed, signature of the Maison. Declined under all its forms, the fur even turns into pants! It has the merit to warm-up the coldest of us.

Paris Fashion Week Part.2

Balenciaga experimental, Balmain sparkling, A. F. Vandevorst Simple

Big disparity of styles last week in the Parisian Fashion Week: while Nicolas Ghesquière pushes the research at Balenciaga, Christophe Decarnin prefers to cover the women of golod. On Thursday morning, Balenciaga seems to have transformed a floor of the hotel Crillon into a laboratory. On an illuminated podium, Nicolas Ghesquière is once again the most experimental of the current Designers. While the rest of them revisit the previous decades, Balenciaga prefers to look forward, exploiting completely the technological resources of the 21st century.

Christian Dior Fall-Winter 2010/11

Okay, I want to know how you like this collection. I like the mix of leather and very airy, soft fabrics. I love the feminine looks, almost wild and animal (can you see their influence?). I like the equestrianism style (or horse backridding outfits) however I would not see myself wear most of what Galliano proposed. It’s fun to watch though!
