Paris Fashion Week SS 2012 Review - The Best for Last

I have to say, the Paris shows are just on another level overall as compared with the fashion week shows in other cities. The shows just have this thrilling magic to them; from the beautiful clothes, to the dramatic styling and themes, to the set design. I was blown away by so many of the shows. Alexander McQueen freaked me out quite a bit; I love how Sarah Burton has beautifully carried on McQueen's legacy. Miu Miu had a dark, gothic feel with a mix of lace, capes and straightjacket-esque silhouettes. On the other end of the spectrum, Marc Jacobs' Louis Vuitton was stunningly lovely, continuing the pastel fresh looks from his Marc Jacobs collection in a gorgeous set, and Chanel was full of typical beautiful, dreamy, delicately frothy ethereal Chanel looks. Givenchy and Lanvin had some great party dresses, and I'm a recent fan of Haider Ackermann, who I first noticed at a store on Abbott Kinney during Fashions Night Out. I'm usually a big fan of Chloe and Stella McCartney, but I had a hard time finding some looks that I really love. Nevertheless, lots of beautiful, inspirational eye candy from the Paris collections.

Haider Ackermann. I'm not sure I could pull off these complex looks, but he's a master of tailoring. Images from
Lanvin. A little darker than expected for a spring show. Images from
Givenchy. Some beautiful party dresses. Images from

Giambattista Valli. Rather restrained collection for him. Images from I really like the looks from the Giambattista Valli x Macy's collection, but I suspect I will be disappointed with the quality of collection in person, like with Karl Lagerfeld x Macy's. Image
