The relationship I have with the European Catwalks this show season is much like that of an older married gentleman and his fiery mistress...I'm the mistress BTW. Today, I love you...and then...I hate you and refuse to speak to you and I will now go down to the cafe on the corner and drink wine with the dashing maitre'd and say horrible things about you...because really European Fashion...it's not like we're married, I'm a free woman...but then you bring me pretty shiny things or open a small boutique for me...and I love you again.
Is that a bow or an afro pik? I'm so confused Marc.
French designer Sophie Albou has made a breakthrough. Remember those horrible kitten sweaters that you would get for Christmas and then never wear unless that favorite aunt was coming over for a visit? The ubiquitous kitten patterned garmet has made its way onto the runways of Paris... you may now wear that handmedown worthy garmet with PRIDE... just say that you picked it up overseas at a small yet classy boutique and that it's by a famous French designer, and you need not fear the ridicule of your peers...

Now this is interesting...an Italian designer (Antonio Marras) designing for Spring/Summer 2010 women's collection for Japanese fashion house Kenzo...
Now for my biggest shock of the entire fashion week... Alexander McQueen...
God it's beautiful.
I've mentioned it before, but my favorite thing about these fahsion weeks, is the exposure that new designers get from it. I for one, have never heard of this woman... Russian designer Alena Akhmadullina... but OMG does she make some ORGASMIC shoes.
Lagerfeld designing for Chanel.
oh it's Lily Allen... how faaaabulous. NOT
It's official, Stella McCartney no longer needs to make money from selling her designs. This collection proves it. Primary colours, lots of pointless ruffles, and shiny booty shorts. If this is predicting a trend, I'm so not following.
oh! WAIT! Jean Paul Gaultier!!! I love you JP!
