Paris Spring 2010 III

1. Christian Dior:
I was not very impressed with Dior this season. There wasn't anything necessarily wrong with it, it was just so... ok. I did love this little lace romper.

2. Dries van Noten:
Dries van Noten went to a place that is very "Dries" for fall, all amazing batik prints and hodge-podge styling. I love that for the most part, the shoes are black and white, and not "perfectly matched" to the clothes themselves (although there was a beautiful fabric pump included). I'm really feeling the printed pants in the first picture and the cropped jacket in the second one.

I can see these dresses being a total hit at the stores (Anna Wintour gets first dib on the second one perhaps?). The prints are so bold and beautiful.

It's all about mixing patterns and keeping it casual.

3. Hussein Chalayan:

These jackets that Hussein created are the perfect mix of masculine and feminine, with their pronounced hourglass silhouette and cutouts at the side. I love it the most when it's paired with a white blouse buttoned all the way up and shorts like in the first picture.

A dress that resembles the ocean. Amazing.
(And I bet it feels insane on your skin!)

4. Karl Lagerfeld:
The perfect sleeveless vest with a swooping hem.

The best way to wear an ornate, fanciful blouse is with a little pair of shorts.

At the end of the show he sent out a couple dresses with this really great metallic print. I thought they had the perfect proportions, especially with their little flouncy sleeves and skirt.

5. Undercover:

I loved the color palette that emerged at the end of the Undercover show. It's warm and perfect for spring.
