Paris Fashion Week SS12: Balenciaga, Rue du Mail, YSL

Who: Balenciaga
What it made us think of: A fashion history roller coaster turned upside down and, perhaps, given hallucinogenic drugs.
What we liked: V-neck pocket sweater/dress things, non-shiny jackets, interesting puffy jeans, asymmetrical white tees, hats, shoes
What we didn't: Shiny bits that looked like a warrior from and 80s music video, diaper shorts, Easter basket grass skirts
Who: Rue du Mail
What it made us think of: Around the World in 80(-ish) Dresses
What we liked: Fish & Fowl prints, knit dresses, shoulder details
What we didn't: dull drapery dresses
Who: Yves Saint Laurent
What it made us think of: An international jewel thief under disguise as a flamboyant business woman.
What we liked: Jackets, coats, sleeves, shoes, belts, wrap/scarf tops, saturated colors
What we didn't: repetition, several boring pieces
