Isabel Marant // After interning at DIANI last year, who introduced me to Isabel Marant, I became absolutely obsessed with the Parian chic designer. No wonder hip celebs like Kate Bosworth, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Emma Roberts love her, Marant's clothes are infectiously chic, down to earth, and hip. No girl is cool without an Isabel Marant piece in their closet and on their body. Marant's presentation was filled with her signature fringe boots, but took a much more knee length approach compared to last season's fringe less boot. The pieces that dominated the run way showcased mixes of denim on denim, navajo prints, feathers, fringe, and her signature knits. Def a fav Paris collection so far. Are you an IM girl?

Lanvin // As an Alber fan, I adored the mysterious yet classic and sultry collection he had done for this season of Lanvin. His play on fur, leather, shapes, wide brimmed hats, capes, flower head pieces, and his signature chunky accessories had me yearning for me. There's no doubt that if I was a women, I'd probably be a Lanvin women. Perhaps in another life? The collection also showcased an eclectic mix of shoes ranging from boots, loafers?, and his signature ankle strapped heels. It also seems like Elbaz sticks to certain colors, I see tones of yellow, navy, and camels that resonated with his spring collection. Who cares, LOVED it all.

Dior // Despite all the all the drama with Dior's ex-creative director, John Galliano, the talented designer sent out a strong last collection for the fashion house. Such a shame that he is no longer with us, but it's even more sad that he let down, Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH who owns Dior. According to K. Lagerfeld, Dior was Arnault's favorite fashion house! So sad. Anywho, Dior's fall collection started with dark autumn hues such as burgundy, purple, green, and navy; towards the end of the collection, it lightened up with it's play on dainty floral prints and pastels. Galliano definitely stuck to the fashion houses Parisian romanticism, which gave us beautifully sculpted coats, capes, dresses, and tops. The thigh high boots were also great with the croc detailing. Overall, a strong collection.

So long Galliano! Question is, who will be John's successor? Haider Ackermann, Stefano Pilati, Oliver Theyskins?
