On the last day of couture, a sunny Paris celebrated fashion, life, food and nudity--and waved fashion shows goodbye…'til September, when much more madness awaits.
Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla: If the designer’s couture line, presented the day before, is out of your budget (sadly, it’s definitely out of mine), this collaboration is the solution. Jean-Paul Gaultier looks, La Perla price. The king of pointy bras meets the master of frilly knickers. What a shame we have to wear clothes over them!
Yiqing Yin: The latest born of avant-garde PR Totem (Manish Arora, Bernhard Willhelm) is perhaps the most civilized of the lot: his collection consists of intricate folds and monochrome dresses--the result is both somber, elegant and understated. AND each guest received a goody bag with perfume and hair products. Not to miss next season!
Couture Food: The French have two loves: fashion and food. So why not mix the two? Yesterday in the gardens of the Palais Royal (once Marie-Antoinette’s favorite hangout spot), a sexy food party took place around the fountains. There, chefs alongside members of the minister of culture, models and various fashion figures ecstatically discussed, tasted, baked miniscule, drop-dead good looking dishes. A table!
