Paris - Spring 2010
A freezing day in Paris
Day 1 in Paris and it is freezing! The skies were clear and blue when we went for breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien in the Marais. When we ventured out it was snowing lightly. How pretty, we thought, but it just kept getting heavier. We found a shop to buy an umbrella and headed for our destination - Colette.
In the window was a beautiful floral collection by Erdem, worn with black patent shoes decorated with bones (plastic, I assume). All around the feet were little dachshunds made of the same floral fabric as the dresses. Anyone who has been to the store will know there is little in the way of racking. The clothes are displayed on mannequins - a little forest of them. It is a great way to give the viewer an idea of how to put a complete outfit together - including shoes and accessories. I imagine it would not be unusual for a customer to take everything on the model.
On one of the mannequins there was a granny square crochet top in bright colours. For one horrible moment I thought it was from Romance was Born - a ridiculous collection from Sydney Fashion Week, but it was Comme de Garcons. My favourite pieces were Lanvin. In particular I liked a black skirt with appliquÃ©d roses which were embroidered and beaded. We later went to the Lanvin store further along Rue St Honore to look at the entire exquisite collection. The huge statement necklaces are what everyone is going to want.
Somehow the cold doesn't really matter when you are in Paris.
Have you heard that Alexander McQueen has been found dead in London? We just heard it on the news.
