Leather and denim were obviously the main textures of the autumn/winter 13 collection of BLK DNM’s, to create a look consisting mostly of a slim fitted jeans and a biker jacket. A look anyone who owes such pieces would consider to wear, meaning a wide range of potential customers. Besides adding more fierceness to the characteristic look, Johan Lindeberg updated it with new elements of shearling, mohair and even added some bright hues of green and red among the blacks. The tailoring Johan Lindeberg usually put into suits were instead transfer onto some fine leatherwear of kangaroo with a laser cut flower detailing, only to be produced in a very limited selection.
The London based brand Joseph has for the last past couple of years been recognised for its wearable and modern statement pieces of coats and knits that have gained a great audience around the world. For fall, designer Louise Trotter continues to create volume of boxy shaped shoulder paired with slim and slouchy fitted pants, mostly coloured in black and white although some were pieces wore a vibrant hues of pink and orange. The emphasize on volume moved downwards as the collection continued however, a-line silhouettes over narrow trousers paired with a blazer. What was most interesting was a experiment with different pattern compositions, often interwoven in the textures themselves except for a great looking fur jacket in a patchwork technique.

On our final day Louis Vuitton took on the longtime tradition of using the historical sites of Paris as a backdrop and showed in the most Eastern part of the legendary Louvre.
Models, industry legends and streetstyle giants met to watch Marc Jacobs theatrically send models out of thousands of doors for the LVMH powerhouse.
This is the fifth and final part of our collaboration with esteemed photographer Mathias Nordgren, who has teamed up with Fashion Networks before for our coverage for Style.com.
Our fourth day brought out a blonde Leigh Lezark from The Misshapes, Sarah Andelman from Colette and one of our close friends; Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast fame!
Rick Owens once stated that “you go to Paris to be judged.” We don’t want to judge anyone, but we would love celebrate some people and what they brought to this fantastic Paris Fashion Week day!
While Mrs. Andelman’s phone might have had ears, Anna Dello Russo won the “Pet of the Day” contest by bringing a real, live, dog to one of the shows!
“Homage of the Day” must be awarded to Hanneli Mustaparta for wearing nothing but Valentino to the Valentino show.
“Glasses of the Day” goes to the as-large-as-windows pair of frames Carine Roitfeld was spotted wearing, simply because the tint of their glass matched her hair almost perfectly!
This is the fourth, and second to last, part of our collaboration with esteemed photographer Mathias Nordgren, who has teamed up with Fashion Networks before for our coverage for Style.com.
Chloé always manages to deliver collections that are effortlessly sophisticated. The Chloé woman is neat & tidy, but also have something bohemian in her which becomes visible through her attitude and the way she dresses – something that will always signify the fashion house in my opinion. But being a Chloé fan, one still look back on those magical years Phoebe Philo designed for the house. This is a good collection, but something is still missing.
