Fall 2013 Jewelry - PFW - Giambattista Valli - Balmain - Saint Laurent - Givenchy - Paco Rabanne
Posted: Mar 07 2013
More Jewelry & Accessories from Paris Fashion Week from more of my favorite designers; Balmain, Giambattista Valli and Givenchy. I'm including Saint Laurent as well since YSL was an iconic brand but this season again I'm less than impressed with Hedi Slimane's "California Grunge" vision. It's actually an embarrassment - it's a collection I would expect from Top Shop, perhaps. Seriously, bring back Tom Ford and please whatever direction this company takes please bring back the original name.
Riccardo Tisci was hailed once again at Givenchy for producing a very innovative collection. Maybe, it's the whole grunge thing but it didn't blow me away. I do appreciate his eye in creating new silhouettes and styling but like I said, I was not inspired in the 90s and it's most likely I will feel the same today. But there are some pieces that I found to be fun and wearable. Oh and there was only one bracelet from him to hit the runway - ;(.
So, let's first be entranced by Balmain's metallic wonders and Giambattista Valli's sumptuous elegance.
|Giambattista Valli - had to include this dress because it is on my want list for Fall.|
|These galactic cuffs add a modern, futuristic twist to a very feminine line.|
|I do love this fabric choker embroidered with crystals by GV.|
|ooh! A second outfit to add to my LIST!!!|
|Let's begin with an iconic Balmain design - I do love!!|
|The chains and charms look has seen its day but so has the grunge look.|
|The only showing of jewelry in the whole Givenchy show is this large I.D. bracelet.|
|Who doesn't like BAMBI????|
|Iconic Paco Rabanne's metallic clutch is definitely worth a mention! I love it!!!|
