Paris fashion week fall winter 2013 was all about taking chances on one hand and staying safe on the other. It was therefore a very dualistic experience. We – obviously – want to welcome the fact that some designers feel that the time is right for some fall fashion that is actually pushing the boundaries.
We love the new calf length even though it’s not for everyone to wear. We love the very structured oversize vibe that is going on, which is definitely going to be refined next season. We love that whole relaxed 90’s grunge feeling, which seems to work well as a contrast to the couture-ish turn Paris has been taking the last couple of seasons. Having said that we are quite sick of models looking as if they just got out of bed… Please, give the girls a Mason Pearson brush.
We are great fans of the stiletto, so seeing the new set of heals looking that clumsy on the models at some of the main shows, made us worry what it would look like on “normal” girls out there… Not sexy for sure!
Black and white still seems to be in every collection out there – hello Mr. Wang – but we were happy to see those amazing shades of purple turning heads. And those leather stockings at Chanel… Yes please! We can’t wait to shoot all these great styles for our AW13 issue of DANSK!
Masculine merges with extreme feminity in this Dries skirt.
We love the new bags at Dries. Ethnic urban style!
Model of the moment – Cara – leading the pack at Vanessa Bruno… A great collection this season!
We loved the pants with that raw paintbrush effect at Margiela.
Ice Ice Baby… This Stella invite came completed with a little toy polar bear. We found it hard to fit it into our new Givenchy man purses…
Stripes were stars at Stella. And the new clumsy shoe actually created a nice contrast to a super chic collection.
Black and white and very precise. No fuss at Viktor & Rolf.
Acne took Paris with storm for their first ever outing there. Amazing colours and great ideas!
Viva la vida… How can you not love Dame Westwood?
Just what we needed Sunday morning – Starbucks coffee in a chic Kenzo cup!
Models posing on the stairs for the finale inside the building site of Samaritaine… Amazing location and another great collection.
Nobody makes black fashion look great as Costume National.
A new day at John Galliano. Bill Gaytten found his own shoes and he filled them… Well done!
The fantastic combination of biker girl, gypsy and Little Red Riding Hood looked super new at Givenchy. Tisci once again challenged the way we look at fashion.
