PARIS: Today I talked again to guest editor Daniela Agnelli, fashion director of ST Fashion and Telegraph Magazine in London, who reports for IRMASWORLD.COM from the fashion shows in Paris.
How was your week?
My fashion week was very busy. But also very inspiring!
The highlight of the weekend was definitely Céline. The trends that came through showed more of a focus on a feminine silhouette. Which was very different from last season’s slouchy and flat furry sandals. There were also beautiful boots and great bags in the show!
How would you describe the overall direction?
There is a new take on tailoring! Generally shoes at the show are flat big soles and mid-calf boots and great, the legging second skin thigh boots. Most of the shoes this season are more walkable and manageable! And the bags are soft and slouched like a clutch.
How did you like Yves Saint Laurent last night?
I was very disappointed about SL… I thought it was a Top Shop show having a bad day… It was interesting to see the face of everyone dropping from the beginning of the show till the end…
Which accessory was mostly seen?
I think bags are in every single show! Giambattista launched a new one in his show. I went to see the Tabitha Simmons shoe collection and they are amazing.
How about make-up?
Make-up is more focused on the eyes this season and nude on the lips.
Did you read the article about bloggers by Suzy Menkes in The New York Times?
Yes I did. I totally agree with Suzy about bloggers – too many and too much. To be honest I hate them!
The general atmosphere in front of the show is very colourful but less fun then spring/summer because of the cold …and to be honest, the bloggers are sometimes too aggressive!
Will go to Valentino now… will report later!
