Anchoring the month of fashion weeks is no easy feet, but Paris has never shied away from the challenge. With the longest line-up of presentations (beating out even NYFW) and arguably some of the largest scale productions, there's a LOT to take in. From the season's newfound artistic inclinations, to some "fringe benefits," we've distilled the best-of-the-best from The City of Lights. Click through the slide show to enjoy the feast…Bon Appétit!
Four cities, one season: Fall 2013. Nemo kicked the collections off and every city to follow added its own dose of wintry chill. Somehow all that cold weather caused a discernible note of restraint to float through the collections. Don’t worry--the passion and excitement were still there, but designers actively pursued defining new ways we can really dress next fall. These looks felt grounded in the return of the “Lady," as fashion’s pendulum swung away from the risqué, toward the refreshingly refined (spike-studded shoulders be damned). Check out our top trends for fall in the slide show.
All the glamour of the Paris shows. All the comfort of your sweat pants.
For the fur-loving fashionista who fears PETA's red paint, Guy Laroche's Marcel Marongiu has the perfect solution: red fur. Sheared fur dresses, skirts, tops, and coats, in red, white, black, and putty, capped off with a couple of gorgeous silver beaded dresses were the highlights of Marongiu's fall collection for Laroche. For the most part, the collection was comprised of perfectly wearable separates: leather skirts and pants, wool-and-sheared-fur overcoats, and wide-buckle belts over simple sheaths. At times it looked a bit pre-Theyskens Theory though (and some ripped knits of a pom-pom sweater variety veered into grunge grandma territory), until the luxe fur looks--I swooned over the red fur dress--stepped it up a notch. Marongiu made fur almost (almost) seem minimalist. And that's a good thing.
