Paris Fashion Week FW12: Balmain, Christian Dior, Viktor & Rolf

Who: Balmain
What it made us think of: A ship of female pirates who wear all their ill-gotten booty at once.
What we liked: encrusted beading, gold buttons, velvet, burnout velvet, supple leather, intricate patterns, pants, the designer's 26
What we didn't: boxy jackets, tapestries didn't work like at Dolce & Gabbana

Who: Christian Dior
What it made us think of: Retired ballerinas.
What we liked: leather in soft styles, long gloves, dove grey, wool cloches, warm textures, dusty colors
What we didn't: a recurring ugly necklace, square-toed shoes with fat ankle straps, a middle-aged feel

Who: Viktor & Rolf
What it made us think of: Pajamas and lingerie
What we liked: business attire, deep red lips, tortoise shell prints
What we didn't: fur, wallpaper print

Ha! I've never been called a hippie before.

I thought the fur use was terrible not because it's fur but because it was used poorly. I have a detail shot of the VR show to post on our FB where the fur coat looks like the sci-fi costume of some obese alien.
