Paris Couture Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’08

Joanne Molina, Senior Editor Second City Style Fashion Magazine

In a just a week the inevitable long nights (and longer lines) and
seasonal aesthetic of NY Fashion Week Fall/Winter ‘08 will make the
pleasures of Paris evaporate. So why not take time to linger a moment
longer and be inspired by Chanel, Lacroix, Dior and Valentino — designers who will have inevitably captured we’ll desire eons ahead of the rest.

Dior: Only Galliano could blend the
optimistic geometry of the ’60s with goth-inspired makeup and the
elongated and heavily styled poses circa 1920 and land up with a
beautiful moment that has something important to say. Indeed, one
imagines that unraveling one of these gowns might leave the culprit
with miles of heavily embellished fabric but each dress lies so beautifully on the bodice that it appears as light as a feather.
And it’s this perfect balance between Bladerunner, the remnants of a
Warhol Jackie O and the silhouette of an old Veuve Clicquot poster that
indulges and inspires.

Valentino: So, sad and yet so very noble. Sometimes it’s hard to know when to say goodbye and per expectation Valentino bid farewell with a collection of 75 looks that showed the depth and dimension of his career.
