Paris Spring 09 II

1. Yohji Yamamoto:
The Yohij collection was a snoozefest. Actually, most of the shows on the second day of the Paris season where boredsville. Even DIOR! Anywho, the drape of this jacket is very nice. That's all I got.

2. Antonio Berardi:
Antonio Berardi sort of upped the ante in Paris, but I saw a lot of Jil Sander's last spring collection in this to be able to say that it was a great collection. This dress is awesome. The color, the cut, the fabric, it's all just.so.

Love it, but am disappointed to see white underwear under this. That black bodice piece should've clearly been a bodysuit to make this look its best.

3. Undercover:
Man, even Undercover was not up to its usual antics. You guys know I have a weak spot for simple white dresses and the texture in this one is really great.

4. Christian Dior:
Are you guys still awake? This is the best I could come up with at Dior. Can you believe it? The color palette of mustard yellow and Tibetan monk orange has popped up in other collections, but I quite like the way that Galliano has taken it and made it almost neon. I do like the combination of soft leather jacket and ruffle-y party dress, but that's nothing to write home about.

5. Gaspard Yurkievich:
I loved the Yurkievich show. It was a good combination of wearable stuff and show pieces.

This dress is so cool. And the best part about it is that it has enough detail built in that you could just throw it on and go and you would always look good and well put together. Sheer, sheer, sheer. I love sheer.

Party dazzle dress! Yes!
