PARIS SPRING 2012 RUNWAY : ALEXANDER McQUEEN

By Mitchell Kass

This show will make you take pause as there are elements that are very Alexander and they are executed flawlessly. Sarah Burton gives us a collection of rare birds beautifully flocked together with endless detail.

Back To The Future

By Melissa Moylan

While a number of collections look to the past in Paris, there is a risingfuturistic aesthetic on hand for Spring 12. Pedro Lourenco pushes the idea forward with pieced constructionmetallics and updated moto vests.

Mugler also gets in on the action with a sci-fi look that features sharp asymmetrical lines.

Architectural geometry is evident at Balenciaga with color blocking. Key items include hot pants and boxy jackets.

Stepford Wives

By Melissa Moylan

The 50s has been quite a popular decade of reference for Spring 12, and in Paris it looks to outweigh the 20s flapper era that was so evident in Milan. We’ve seen various expressions of the 50s already in New York, London and Milan, ranging from 50s housewives to Palm Springs ladies. In Paris, Rochas explores the 50s screen siren recalling Hitchcock film heroines. In all expressions, full silhouettes are key on both skirts and dresses, while sophisticated pencil skirts are also featured.

PARIS SPRING 2012 RUNWAY : YSL

By Mitchell Kass

I have to say this was the most melancholy show YSL has done. The color story was disjointed and very “fall-like” and there was no signature YSL proportioning to hold the namesake together apart from a few black numbers at the finale. The tuck scarves seemed to be the only new thing happening in this collection.

PARIS SPRING 2012 RUNWAY RICK OWENS

By Mitchell Kass

Something amazing went on in this show. Rick Owens pushed past the monochromatic to unleash a matriarchal medieval village adding color from the ashes and playing with light to really capture the collections depth.

PARIS SPRING 2012 RUNWAY : ENGINEERED EMBROIDERY WITH MESH

DIVINE DETAILING: GIVENCHY

By Lindsey Alt

Ricardo Tisci demonstrated, yet again, his relentlessness attention to detail, tailoring and understanding of the female body with gis SS12 collection. A slightly different essence to his normal dark palette, Tisci played with pastel colors while keeping that edgy Givenchy vibe in the hardware. This was hands-down my favorite show so far this season and I think we can all agree those shoes with shark tooth closure are the perfect balance of femininity and traditional Tisci touch.
