Paris Fashion Week AW2011 Review Pt2

Raf Simons: The brightness was toned down slightly, mixed with the obligatory camels & blacks of Winter staples. Cropped duffel coats. Rounded shoulders.
Amazing magenta and indigo shades.
Lanvin: lovely carpet. very plush. The bright colours we have seen so far have been dulled slightly. jewelled colours in ruby red, golds and emeralds. Exposed zips & raw edges among the Lanvin staples. Those hats scream Carmen Sandiego.
YSL: From Stefano Pilati; Jewelled colours featured heavily too. Emerald & saphire blue.
A slight sixties vibe in the modish trouser suits. The sharpest tailoring you ever did see.
Body conscious layers with oversized outerwear.
Paul Smith: The 300th duffel of the season! love a cute boy in a duffel. bright yellow with flashes of silver. paper bag waists. Inspired by a full moon!
