Paris FW spring 2012- Balmain, Isabel Marant, Christian Dior


Balmain

glam & fab keywords: Mixed matador/cowboy/shiny rich looks; mostly white and black as base colors; pale denim; gold beading and detailing; fringe jackets; magnificent embroidery; fantastic pants shape and iconic sexy dresses; bit of snake skin.
Olivier Rousteing's first collection for this house as a main designer, personally I think he did great job!! Recognizable Balmain's rock chic fabulousity!

And again- it's all about details!!!

Isabel Marant

glam & fab keywords: Chunky amazing knits; tie-dye and patchwork pattern; loose shapes; shorts and great skinny jeans; lace and sexy mini dresses, fantastic sandals...


Christian Dior   

glam & fab keywords: ladylike shapes and feminine soft lines; knee length skirts; accentuated waits with tiny belts; colors- mostly neutral and black, only red and orange/coral as stronger tones; beautiful sheer dresses; excellent details...
Nice collection, nice Bill Gaytten's work... but just like fall 2011 couture collection- so not Dior!!!! I had bigger hopes this time, and all I can say (again!!) is this -> my brilliant, sensational and beloved John Galliano is irreplaceable!!!

Love these sandals, especially the heels!
 Can somebody please explain me the trend of "counting how many fingers u see outside of the sandals"??!!! Big NO for this model of the sandals!


Note: Another new content on the blog! Picks and short reviews of my favorite collections and runway looks I liked the most (would wear!) and found inspirational... As always I love to hear your thoughts!!!:)
Have a successful beginning of the week!!

  4. AH GORGEOUS. I love the embellishments on Balmain, especially. It's very regal feeling. LOVE IT. Thanks for posting all these - I've been far too lazy to catch up on style.com the past few days.

  5. Those models ponytails are flaw.less. I am desperate to make the perfect ponytail. Can I have their hairstylists, please?? I need one of them to follow me around and do my hair every day.

  6. Balmain never dissapoints me..and Isabel Marrant was really cool..I don´t even want to talk about Dior..for the simple fact its a Bill Gayten collection...not a Dior one...
