All the fashion weeks in the world just wrapped.  Unfortunately I didn’t pay attention to London (too busy at work), Italy was underwhelming (DG rolled out yet ANOTHER show full of leopard prints and Italian-woman-in-the-forties shapes… and a curious number of models without pants), but Paris delivered thanks to Dior’s funky, period ready-to-wear show and Chanel’s walking-on-water runway + iceberg (yet shitty– IMOHO– collection… two words: yeti boots). Don’t subscribe to WWD? Me neither, but I can borrow their images & show you the three cool things to come out of Pepe Le Pew‘s chic hometown.

1. Keep your eyes peeled for these kick-ass stockings– in theory for next fall, but why not this spring if you can find them:

Style them with see-through negligees layered with puffy culottes for day… (did I just suggest that?…)

…and silky black things for night.   Note: the hair kicked ass at Dior: poofy up top and ratty braidy at the bottom.  Will definitely be rocking that to work upon one-too-many at DOC.

2.  Karl Lagerfeld’s designs were underwhelming/ugly, but the man is fashion’s Jesus and made models walk on water:Brills.

**Read more about his “Climate change chic” (yes, Virginia, that is a paradox) collection here.

3.  Final observation, though hardly original as WWD has the same article (or at least I presume from the title- I can’t read their article because I don’t subscribe)… Dior’s RTW collection is Alice in Wonderland meets Sherlock Holmes and I luurrve it!

Shopping list:  tophat, leather & velvet,  CAPES & LACE! (thanks Sherlock Holmes)

Alice in Wonderland gives us crazy hair, dramatic/sickly eyes and whimsically romantic outfits!  Behold:

and stacked neckline/collar + more lace:

I will let John Galliano bid you au revoir… until next fashion week(s)!
