The French are looking forward to a more relaxing fall.0
Fall 2010 Fashion Week: Paris. Ahhhh the city for lovers, loafs, lattes and lace. After a whirlwind of Fashion Week frenzy, Paris has allowed us to lounge, kick back, and relax. The typical Parisian style could be found around every corner but with a bit more comfort than the Parisian norm. Was that a slouched jacket? Socks with high heels? A shirt untucked?
Paris fashion week shows didn’t close with quintessential elaborate gowns and fancy Dior-esque dresses. (Balenciaga showed not a single solitary gown.) Instead, a sportswear influenced styles, loose-fitting slacks, wrinkly satin, silk skirts and sweaters dominated runways. Nina Ricci, Dries Von Noten, Stella McCartney and Akris, to name a few, had a more modern, multifaceted client in mind when they designed Fall’s flexible wear. Many pieces combined street and evening wear. Designers spoke on their clients’ desire for interchangeable pieces.
Even in France, the four day work week is a bestseller. And in Paris, they’re looking forward to a more relaxing fall.
