The Best of #PFW Spring 2014

From soul stepping dancers to the departure of Marc Jacobs from Louis Vuitton, Paris Fashion Week was a fitting end to the Spring 2014 fashion show. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a preview of some of favorite shows. Paris is full of original, romantic and avant garde designs. It embodies the creativity of fashion in a way other cities haven't been able to replicate. That being said here are some of my favorite shows. Dior

Spring 2014 Dior

Ahhh. J'dore Dior! The colors, the prints, the silhouettes, all so elegant. Not to mention the tropical jungle paradise set!

 

Chanel

Spring 2014 Chanel

As I previously mentioned, Chanel is so hit or miss. Lately, its been miss after miss. While I wasn't complete in  love with this collection, it was a marked improvement over the previous season. This collection was much more wearable (and thus more sellable). It contained updated tweed and patterns and was very young and fresh.

 

Valentino

Spring 2014 Valentino

Valentino known for amazing elegant and glamorous dresses, threw us for a bit of a loop with this collection. Instead of modern glamour, Valentino went tribal while still maintaining the attention to detail that reflects the heritage of this great brand.

John Galliano

Spring 2014 John Galliano

 

While John Galliano, the man, has faced his own battles in the court of public opinion, the brand is still showing his creativity. Loved the sporty separates and the dramatic dresses. Not to mention the vibrant colors.

Givenchy

 

 

 

 

 

Spring 2014 Givenchy

 

Leaving the oversized sweatshirts in 2013, Givenchy once again added elegance and drama to it collection. The masks seemed unnecessary  and a bit creepy, but the clothes were never-the-less amazing.
