Kenzo PFW Runway
Happy 40th birthday to Kenzo! The fantastic designer duo of Kenzo Takada and Antonio Marras showcased their Spring/Summer 2011 looks for Paris Fashion Week on a revolving stage at Cirque d’Hiver; a ‘music box with forty ballerinas‘ as far as press talk goes. In a quality display of East-meets-West fashion, a fairy tale collection worthy of Kabuki theatre celebrated one specific theme (out of forty) per outfit. Perfect, wearable garments from look one through forty. View Post

Antonio Marras MFW Runway
Love Kenzo? Love Antonio Marras. This is someone who pulls of romanticism so well you would think he invented it. What I loved in particular was his use of sportswear shapes on a very gentle archetypes. Lingerie accents were so well made they safely steered clear of any raunchy undertones. He closed with white paper butterflies, a themed trick so precise it made me want to reach through my laptop. A very powdery and innocent collection. View Post
