BEEN by D’heygere

BEEN by D’heygere

During my trip to Paris I had planned to visit a bunch of showrooms, meet designers and see their collections up close. However, with Chanel taking up more of my time than I had expected, I didn’t make it to any of them (not that I’m complaining of course!). One of the collections I was looking forward to seeing was BEEN by D’heygere, a new legging and cycling shorts line by designer Stéphanie D’heygere. Stéphanie isn’t just supertalented (she graduated […]

Chanel SS11: A View From The Front Row

Chanel SS11: A View From The Front Row

So in the final of my posts on my crazy Chanel adventure , I’m focusing on the actual show. I truly loved every minute of it, from the choreography, to the 80 strong orchestra playing Björk and The Verve to the few casting surprises, like Brad Koenig & his adorable son and a glowing Inès de la Fressange. Inspiration for the collection (and the décor) for this season came from the 60′s cult film Last Year In Marienbad, for which […]

A Chanel Dream Come True!

A Chanel Dream Come True!

As most of you who follow me on Twitter or on Facebook already know, I spent the past few days in Paris, living my wildest fantasy. A while ago I was contacted by Chanel, who apparently had been reading my blog for some time, whether I’d be interested in covering the SS11 show for their Chanel News. This would be the first time they used an outside person to to write for the website, this would be the first time […]

Paris Fashion Week, here I come, invitations welcome

Paris Fashion Week, here I come, invitations welcome

Hi everyone! I’ve got some verrrry exciting news. So after quite a few seasons of doing just London Fashion Week, where I feel I have firmly got my footing now, I’ve decided to take the leap and also add Paris Fashion Week to my schedule for the first time this season. I already have a few things lined up but would love to make the most out of my trip. This may be perhaps a little cheeky, but as I […]

Lee Klabin

Lee Klabin

A while back I was invited to the beautiful showroom of Lee Klabin. I’ll be honest with you – before the first contact from the PR, I’d never heard of Lee Klabin, but I guess that’s what this is all about: discovering and falling in love with new and talented designers. Lee initially fell in love with corsets during her studies and continues her love affair in her eponymous clothing label. In the showroom I got to have a look […]

McQueen’s final masterpiece

McQueen’s final masterpiece

Today Alexander McQueen‘s final collection was shown at presentations for a select gathering of friends and editors. They were shown just 16 looks which the late designer had pretty much completed in the weeks running up to his premature death, almost a month ago. You’ll know by know how much this has all saddened me, so rather than give you an in-depth review, I’d just like to let the whole collection speak for itself. Whatever happens to the brand now, […]

Chanel AW10

Chanel AW10

The AW10 show season nears its end today in Paris, and trust Karl Lagerfeld to take things to a whole new level. For the Chanel AW10 show, the Grand Palais had been transformed into a giant refrigerator. Editors sat in front of a giant white box desperately trying to guess what was lurking behind it. When the covers were lifted, it turned out to be nothing less than an actual iceberg, imported from Sweden for the occasion. As if the […]

One is 13, the other probably has a job

One is 13, the other probably has a job

Alexa Chung and Tavi larking around at the Chanel Couture show yesterday. Let’s forget about Tavi’s blue hair or Alexa’s clogs or their teenage (pun intended) behaviour for a minute. But why are they even there, let alone sat in the front row? I find it terribly disappointing that this is the image PR’s wish to create for their brand in favour of old fashioned glamour, which is what Couture Week should be all about. Anyway, you should read this […]

Paris Menswear AW10 Shows part 1

Paris Menswear AW10 Shows part 1

MORE TO COME!!! Viktor & Rolf This was the first catwalk outing for Viktor & Rolf Monsieur – somewhat surprising, as the menswear line has been around for 7 years. If there’s one thing the Dutch duo know, it’s how to set the perfect scene to compliment their clothes. Their womenswear shows are usually these huge coordinated productions, which go perfectly with the slightly bonkers clothing they make. For their menswear debut they knew to make it small, simple, intimate. […]

Maison Martin Margiela S/S 09

Maison Martin Margiela S/S 09

Who cares about the credit crunch? Obviously not the fashion pack. This was again the case during the Maison Martin Margiela show in Paris this week. As a Belgian, I might be biased, but I’m always in awe of everything Margiela does. The unwearability, the creativity and the blatant “not giving a crap” is just rare to find again and again in a designer, yet this season he outdid himself again for his 20th anniversary collection. My favourites were the […]
