FW13 – Best Of Catwalks – PARIS

Paris Fashion Week FW2013 - Catwalks

PARIS WAS a bit of a letdown, I must say. Loved Lanvin’s giant insects but the collection looked bland to me, Givenchy’s hair was brilliant but the garments didn’t quite match it, Slimane’s grungified Saint Laurent was sad – he won me on dropping out the “Yves” but now… it was just too much of him and too little of the fashion house. Thank god Marc Jacobs gave us a beautiful show to make for all this, and a couple more did too, as you’ll see after the jump.

PARIS FOI uma pequena desilusão, devo dizer. Adorei os insectos gigantes da Lanvin, mas a colecção pareceu-me desinteressante, o cabelo da Givenchy foi brilhante mas as peças não estiveram à sua altura, a Saint Laurent “grunge-ificada” de Slimane foi triste – dei o braço a torcer quando ele decidiu tirar o Saint, mas desta vez foi simplesmente demasiado dele e muito pouco da casa. Felizmente Marc Jacobs apresentou um desfile fabuloso para compensar tudo isto, e alguns outros também, como podem ver aqui.

Chloé

Clare Waight Keller, the designer behind Chloé, said “It’s about girls who emerge from uniform. (…) It’s essentially about girls creating independence through the way they dress.”. And through that point of view she delivered a much tougher Chloé girl that the one we’re used to, in manly cut garments paired with sheer polka dots, in an impeccable yet somewhat rebellious elegance.

Clare Waight Keller, a designer por detrás da Chloé disse que era “sobre raparigas que largam o uniforme. (…) é essencialmente sobre raparigas criarem independência através da forma como se vestem.”. É através desse ponto de vista que nos mostra uma mulher muito mais dura do que a mulher Chloé a que estamos habituados, vestida com cortes masculinos que combina com transparências às bolinhas, numa elegância impecável mas ao mesmo tempo rebelde.

Christian Dior

Christian Dior always has the most beautiful, perfect “A” silhouettes, and this season Raf Simmons made some more, although its main inspiration was the connection between his passion for art and Dior’s, using Warhol’s drawings on many of the dresses. Not my cup of tea, though.
I’m more into his classics. These.

A Christian Dior tem sempre as silhuetas em “A” mais maravilhosas e esta estação Raf Simmons traz-nos mais umas quantas, apesar da sua inspiração principal ter sido a paixão comum pelas artes, entre si e Dior, utilizando desenhos de Warhol em muitos dos vestidos.
Esses não são os meus preferidos, este são.

Elie Saab

Not my favorite E.S. collection ever, but his rigor and perfection are hardly ever going to disappoint. Some beautiful strict cut day outfits and some beautiful nightgowns “à la” Elie Saab of course, of that kind that would make any woman feel either like the true princess or the evil queen.

Não foi a minha colecção ES favorita de sempre, mas o seu rigor e perfeição dificilmente irão desapontar. Alguns coordenados de dia mais duros mas lindíssimos e claro, vestidos de noite “à la” Elie Saab, daquele tipo que faria qualquer mulher sentir-se – à escolha – a verdadeira princesa
ou a rainha má da história.

Hermés

The french classic impeccably cut in monochromes with earth and clouded-sky tones. This was Hermés at its best, showing a tough and feminine woman who doesn’t need elaborate artifices
to stand out. Impossible not to love.

O clássico francês impecavelmente cortado em lisos de tons terra e céu-nublado. Foi assim esta Hermés no seu melhor, mostrando uma mulher forte e feminina, que não precisa de artifícios  elaborados para se impor. Impossível não gostar.

Louis Vuitton

A rich woman leaves or enters a hotel room in a hurry. Her clothes are refined, her looks lascivious. You can’t really tell if she’s a well payed escort or a bourgeoise with a tale to tell. Jacobs always has his own story to tell, and this one is certainly one for grown-ups. Silks, satins, lace, cashmere and (exquisite) sequined tweeds make up her just-off-bed wardrobe, surrounding us in mystery and lust,
a mix hard to resist.

Uma mulher abastada entra ou sai de um quarto de hotel à pressa. Roupa refinada, ar lascivo.
Não conseguimos discernir se é uma acompanhante de luxo ou uma burguesa com algo a esconder. Jacobs tem sempre uma história para contar e esta é seguramente para maiores de dezoito.
Sedas, cetins, rendas, caxemiras e tweeds salpicados de lantejoulas lindos de morrer compõem
o guarda-roupa desta mulher acabada de sair da cama e que nos envolve em luxúria e mistério,
uma combinação a que é difícil resistir.

  1. It’s so rare to see bloggers give their honest opinion on designers and catwalks, as most usually have an intense orgasm over anything that walks the runway, so kudos to you. I think my favorite ones were Chloe and Christian Dior. I’m also disappointed in Elie Saab’s collection, but that white, floor length cape? Gahhh… I need to have this in my life so I can walk around the hood, channel my inner Beyonce and tell them peasants.. BOW DOWN BITCHES.

    • Ahah! Loved to read your comment, RoxTheFox! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the compliment, I kinda agree on that lack of critical opinion. The cape… to die for. Would love to see you do that channeling of your inner Beyoncé ;P
