Paris Fashion Week, with Love.

Paris.

The city of Love.

The city of Art.

Love, Art. Each so widely adored, and associated with fashion; it's only right for Paris to be a flagship city for Fashion Week.

Twice a year, the 'who's who' of the industry, the up-and comers, as well as those aspiring, gather in this magical city for Paris Fashion week; also known as a 'circus' or 'parade' of fashion. In our opinion, it's best described as a dream. 

Although we weren't there in person, we were in spirit! & We're sharing a few of our favorite looks, straight from Paris.

(To live without loving is to not really live.) 

Street Style (Style de la Rue) 

Street Style has almost overtaken the excitement of the actual runway shows; not solely at New York Fashion Week, but Paris alike-the average girl rocks it best!

+ Can anyone deny the importance of the perfect paparazzi filled street-stylish entrance?

'Tendances'

The French word for Trends. 

Rule #1: There are no rules. & that goes for Patterns too- Mix them all! 

Street style at it's finest- mix of detailed patterns & texture

One of our favorites, that started last season that we're seeing a lot of now that it's Fall again are Oversized Coats... Not only are they super warm, they look pretty cool: 

Forget the coat- we can't keep our eyes off of her boots!

Even the guys- well, Paris guys are embracing this Oversized mode.

If you grew up in the 90's, you remember that awkward thing called fanny-packs. Well, they're back. They're calling them 'belt bags' these days.... but I think we'll stick to fanny-packs. A couple of our favs- classic Chanel & Loius V. of course:

Sunglasses. 

It may be fall, but we're forward thinking in this industry- we're already prepping for Spring/Summer 2015. Here are a few of the hottest shades spotted at #ss15 Paris fashion week:

'Les Tentes'

or 'The Tents,' as they say in New York.

Fashion week in Paris is a bit more lavish. Street style is cool, but the runways are incredible. Fabulous. They're what inspire, & set the tone, far in advance for what's 'In.' Here are a couple of the stand outs: 

Celine  Ladies, don't worry- florals will be continuing into next season. & Celine finds a way to make them different (Images cutesy of theguardian)

Junya Watanabe  I guess the future is now. It doesn't get much more avant-garde than this.

Dries Van Noten  Take Notes- the subtle mix of patterns, muted colors, and textures gives this collection a romantic stand out look; inspired by Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (image curtesy of theguardian)

Chanel  Could you be any more showstopping?   Supporting a feminist movement, the runway was filled with 'protesters' picketing 'History is Her Story'
