Et alors? I finally did my very delayed report on Paris Fashion Week pour automne-hiver 2008!
ATTACHMENT: UNCONVENTIONAL CHIC
I've seriously never heard of the label not until I saw it at TFS. I like how the way everything seems to look prim and proper from head to toe plus that little spunky attitude with the shoes. The textures, the shades of gray, and the gentleman tendencies were strong points of this collection.
DOMA: LE ANDROGYNE
Croatian créateur Damir Doma presented a show that featured deconstruction and androgyny and added to the hype that is Paris Fashion Week. The silver plates on the cheek were also interesting and the various movements in black meaning I see so much intensity and diversity with the way he uses black. Menswear is really starting to evolve and I am very happy about that. As for me, donning styles like this would make me the ridicule of people on the streets here in poor Manille but nevertheless I'll take my chances. One's fashion preferences reflect his intelligence, his refusal to submit, and that challenge to find yourself in what you wear.
WILFRIED MAYER: MINIMALIST STATUS QUO
Never underestimate minimalism as such conservative view bears such immense talent a designer could do to keep a well balanced and a powerful impact from toning things down. I really admire such designers who could present a simple collection yet amidst the simplicity there is that level of craftsmanship that you could admire. Mayer's clothes also show this sense of fluidity as I look at them closely probably because they do not fit around the body but the fabric falls down on a certain way that makes it look sharp and extremely modern. The cuts and the silhouette seemingly reminds me of Hedi Slimane.
