Paris Fashion Week

When they say we’ll always have Paris, I have to believe they were talking about its impressive fashion. There were so many different styles and ideas and creativity pouring off the runways. My favorites included these yellow/orange color schemes. I just love how rich and bold the color is and also that yellow is such and energetic and happy color.

Even though the cutouts feel extreme, I love the mix of layers between the skirt, leggings and coat from Balmain.

Mugler, Rick Owens

Wanda Nylon, Balmain

This dress from Aalto is such a unique mix of minimalism and utility. The cinched drawstring waist adds great detail.

There were a lot of printed, graphic tees on many runways, but I like this one from Christian Dior best and the urban way it was styled.

I of course had to get a glitter fix, and Kenzo(above) and Mugler(below) did not disappoint. Bonus points to Mugler with the additional shine of those metallic shoes.

Blue shoes are such a fun pop of color against any neutral outfit for spring.

These Chloe shoes also were in red and they. were. fabulous.

This bright leopard with white pants is another crisp, easy way to dress up an outfit.

Olivier Theyskens made a return to Paris Fashion week after two years away. I didn’t check on his previous collections, but I thought the linear sportswear was classic and well done.

The earthy palette from Dries van Noten was so stylish.

Sonia Rykiel’s light fabrics and intrepid details made this runway one of my favorites.

Wanda Nylon designer Johanna Senyk brought streetwear staples to the runway with her signature waterproof fabrics.

Chanel is always such a smorgasbord of ideas. I liked the use of ball caps, and that the runway included iconic Chanel attire like the tweed skirt. I also adore that multicolor jacket.

Valentino had the prettiest brightest dress, and if you believe in the idea of MILK(money, ID, lipstick, keys) when going out, those itty bitty bags are a dream come true. They are the epitome of essentials only.

Elie Saab was my favorite runway of all time. The entire runway was like a brought to life dream of mine. Star print anything is another favorite of mine, and these star studded looks have my heart. The details are perfection, from the jewelry to that pvc bag with gold stars (in the 5th photo from top) I love it love it love it, at the risk of sounding like a fangirl.
