Fashion week in Paris was amazing, all the designers out did themselves as usual. Besides the wonderful collection from Chanel the show itself was very theatrical and dramatic, with its fog-shrouded forest on a bed of still-smoldering scorched earth. The collection was filled with jackets, coats, distressed denim leggings, caps, and boots each item looking as if they had been moth-eaten or tattered. Collete’s collection was filed with detailed lace, beaded embellishments, and crystals. Her collection was full of beautiful pieces; my favorite was full knee length dress with the beautiful trim detail. (upper right photo). Elie Saab has always been a favorite of mine and this show was no exception. Of course he had amazing details of lace and beaded. Colors included gray, dark red, and abstract multicolor print. Emanuel Ungara was filled with lace, beaded trim, leather and sequin. There were many lavishing pieces on the runway from strapless black jumpsuit with long-sleeve lace underlay to a sculpted domino sequin embroidered gown.
