it took me forever to get this out because my life has been sooo crazy, busy and jampacked. but here is the last entry for the fall 2009 presentations! i love fashion weeks, but updating for them is such a marathon! enjoy my dears :)
♥ me


hermes- hermes played on an aviation theme. gaultier did such a great job with it, putting the classic hermes spin on the theme.


isabel marant- cool parisian girl about town looks.


jean paul gaultier- i loved the masculine suits at the beginning of the show, and the gaultier-ness of it all.


lanvin- alber elbaz describes himself as a realist, and he makes clothes that women need in order to look good, feel good, and function well in our world climate. we all know the economy is in the garbage, but that doesn't mean we can't look good--it just means we have to rethink our shopping habits and our closets. i loved these "real" looks from lanvin.


limi feu- this is a step in the right direction for limi feu. i really loved her take on edwardian designs.


louis vuitton- this show seemed to be inspired by the ruffly, girly side of the 80s as well as the craftmanship of the amazing christian lacroix. i fell in love with the collection instantly. it's blazers and exposed bras were endearing and the counstruction of the big shouldered dresses were amazing. seriously, whoever gets a piece of LV fall 09 should be happy.


maison martin margiela- says maison margiela lost its magic and that they believe margiela has left his house. maybe he did leave it, but i liked this collection. it made sense to me.


martin grant- i loved this collection. the shoes, clothes and makeup were perfect.


viktor & rolf- the model's faces were washed with a pale white tint, and the clothes seemed to have a vintage inspiration with old style cuts, belting and buttoning. i loved the cascading ruffle theme they had throughout the show, sometimes the pattern was sewn into the bodice of clothing, and it was even featured in a fur frock.


valentino- all i have to say is ♥♥♥♥ amazingly simple glamour.


stella mccartney- amazingly chic outerwear, and such an elegant yet young collection. i love you stella!


tao- this show was almost lacroix like in it's imaginiativeness and creativeness.


sophia kokosalaki- all of sophia's collections are so intelligent and fluid, i'd love to wear the clothes she makes...particularly the ones in the collage!


rue du mail- parisian chic--very feminine and very cool. i am in love with the nude peplum dress to the far left.


roland mouret- i loved the shoes in this collection, so original yet wearable! oh, why must i be poor? O.O


nina ricci- this was olivier theysken's last collection from nina ricci and it was AMAZING. i was astounded to see how brilliant it was. i remember when he first came to nina ricci (or at least his early days there) i was amazed with him, last season i wasn't, but he got everything back on track--i wonder who the next head of nina ricci will be? i'll miss olivier.


givenchy- ohmagahh! adriana lima was in the givenchy show! she is really trying to widen out. kudos to her. anyway, i loved it. enough said. tisci is a genius, the end. :)


gareth pugh- i love you gareth pugh!


miu miu- this collection was so chic. some unique aspects of the collection were pailette embellished knee socks, deep v's, lots of coats and fur shoes.


kenzo- this collection took it's inspiration from mother russia. featured were amazingly fashionable khaki utilitarian jackets, cute embellished knits, paisley and folk printed embellished chiffon, furs, platform boots and amazingly beautiful large leather bags. antonio marras did a good job. i realllly liked this show but i was way too tired to make another collage. these were my choice looks: 8,13, 22, 26, 40

sonia rykiel- i love the smiles on the model's faces in every sonia rykiel show. i thought i really liked the show but on closer inspection i wouldn't really wear many of those clothes, the color palette and styling was old-ladyish. but i love the models' smiles.

i think my fave show from paris and from all the fashion weeks was louis vuitton, it was the most memorable to me and i loved the colors, the rabbit ears, the makeup, the accessories...everything!


  1. Loving all the collages!

    La C.

    La C.

  4. I love the looks from the Hermes collection! Thanks for sharing! <3


  5. I haven't read the review, but I'm scared now! I love MMM, so I hope everything goes well with the house. MMM's creations are just so creative and innovative. As out-there as they are, I would honestly wear them.

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.


thanks couturecarrie!<3
