The Paris Top Ten

What did I love in Paris?

Here it is…

two cents

Best Unexpected Moment: Rick Owens show

When he sent out four dueling step groups from DC in fiercly choreographed show, everyone was waiting for skinny goth models to follow. They never came! Bravo!

Best Set: Dior show

Hundreds of thousands of blooms, real and fake, hanging from the ceiling? Check. Thank you Raf! A mindblower….

two cents

Best Insider Moment: Eddie Borgo Dinner at Laperouse

Eddie had the who’s who of fashion week for his semi-annual shindig. Laperouse is the most famouse house of hookers…I mean “courtesans”…in Paris.

Best Hair: Junya Watanabe

The Navajo-tinged braidfest was a literal tour de force.

two cents

Best Standing Ovation: Comme des Garçons

I think the crowd is still waiting for Rei to come out.

Best Feel Good Moment: Joan Burstein

“Mrs. B” of Browns in London is a legend. What a treat to meet her at Dries!

two cents

Best Tourist Moment: Lover’s Bridge

I take this route back to my hotel whenever I can. It reminds me that love does last!

Best New Store: Broken Arm

Brooklyn meets Paris. Coffee shop cum retail store is a real treat. Adorable. And so chic!

two cents

Best Hotel Discovery: Jules and Jim in the Marais

A hidden gem…gorgeous…quiet. The coolest courtyard in Paris!

Best Meal: L’Wren Scott

She brings her chef (and Mick’s too) to Paris. The food is sublime. The clothes were too! So civilized!

This season, designers are giving the classic color combo a fresh spin in the form of marbleized prints. Last weekend’s WSJ featured the trend – and included one of our favorite Balenciaga coats of the season, too.

It’s been pointed out that I’m seeming bitter about the whole fashion system. Well, I guess I am. I was at Northpark this weekend heading to the movies, and saw this shirt at Forever 21, in the window, on sale. Clearly “inspired” by Alexander Wang‘s show less than a month ago, it’s already on the way out.

It made me sad, but also made me realize it is the world we live in. You can’t stop it, so just go with it. Do what you love, do it with creativity and intensity, and let what happens happen.

And I’m kind of wanting that shirt…

(The original, of course!)
