Right after the LUTZ HUELLE runway show, i took a good and long sprint (on my heels) to the venue where the LANVIN show was being held and i in my opinion, i should have got a gold medal for it because running on heels in Paris is not an easy job....and thank god, THE SHOW OF ELBAZ WAS DELAID....i got there just in time to see all of the biggest movie stars and the most important fashion of the world arrive at ECOLE NATIONAL SUPERIEUR DES BEAUX-ARTS !!!
Ok, let's get on with the name-dropping-show, first the regular celebrities: Kristin Scott Thomas, Catherine Deneuve, Pace Wu and Laura Smet.
Not that impressive BUT wait till you see the FASHION A-LIST: Anna Wintour, Crace Coddington, Franca Sozzani, Anna Dello Russo, Rachel Zoe, Haider Ackermann, Nina Garcia and don't forget the models: Lindsey waxson, karlie kloss, Magdalena Frackowiack and Sakia de Brauw. WOW WOW WOW !!!
Seeing my favorite American model (Karlie Kloss) ones again in Paris...made me feel a bit concerned about her health, she looked really skinny TOOO skinny in my opinion, she's even was made "bigger" with photo-shop after her photo-shoot with Greg Kadel for the Numero magazine of October....i hope that this is just a phase.

A collection that will include hats, scarves and small leather accessories, on my personal wish-list stands the Pad case and tote bag which are printed with neon-pink and blue hearts.

MULBERRY: The making of a Del Rey Handbag



Llovely news: MULBERRY has created an online guide for us fashionistas....NO, it's not about bags or other amazing leather goods but about good old Britain....YES, that's right a guide that can lead us through the number one fashion capitol of the world. in diffirent catogories MULBERRY tells us the best hotspots of the United Kingdom with Architecture, food, fashion, music and science, each section contains information with links to share, quotes, contributions and recommendations.  and the fun part is that there's even a "Your Brilliant Britain" section where you can add your own suggestions.

Brand Director Georgia Fendley said: “Our national identity is woven into our brand, so the project seemed to be a natural extension of our heritage and passion for the best of Britain. We wanted to do more than simply feature in an advertising campaign and we decided to create a vehicle that would champion the unsung heroes of the UK.”
The project launches on Thursday (11th October) with an installation in Harrods, and you also pick up an edited printed version of the guide in Mulberry stores....WALK, WALK FASHION BABY....MULBERRY IS GONNA GUIDE US CRAZY (in a very good way that is :) !!!

THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHRISTOPHER KANE COLLECTION EVER !!! usually i'm not a huge fan of mister Kane....SO this spring/summer 2013 runway show was a real surprise to me....The cropped jackets are to die for (really must get me that cool black or sweet white one, or both ;) the white outfits rock the runway, the sheer pieces are amazing and what about the shoes....let's talk about the shoes, THEY ARE TOOOO CUTE and in my opinion the new IT-SHOES for the next spring !!!


WHAT'S UP WITH OUR BELOVED BURBERRY PRORSUM ??? I can not tell you if i like the new spring collection or not....what i do love are the cool plastic cropped capes and plastic bags, that beautiful lace, the trench-coats still rock the show for me, peplums are here to stay and great colour use BUT there is something about the presentation that's not appealing to me but i can't place my finger on it....OH WELL, MAYBE TIME WILL TELL !!!
