IT EVEN GETS BETTER

See this is why Paris fashion week is my favourite: after seeing Nina Ricci & Lanvin, I thought it couldn't get any better. Well it did.
Dries Van Noten is now officially my hero. I loved how incredibly optimistic the collection looked, the colours were AMAZING! It almost felt like a spring collection! What I loved too was how relaxed the pieces were but still so elegant. You can say the clothes may have looked a bit too dull, but the colours certainly make up for that. (I'm kind of a colour-person, can you tell? ^-^)

And it seems like Dries Van Noten wasn't the only designer who didn't want to do an all-black collection. Givenchy had a great dark blue (besides black & white). I have no clue how anyone would pull off that hair-dress but you've got to admit it does look stunning. And those white dresses have Godess written all over it.

And we're not done yet (told you Paris was my favourite ^-^) Stella McCartney is on her way!
I didn't love the ENTIRE collection, but aaaah how can you say no to these silhouettes:

But yikes, all these blazers! I've seen like a million super amazing blazers + leather jackets, how am I ever going to track down THE perfect one for fall? What I do know is that I'm really into that grey blazer on the bottom row next to miss McCartney herself (who was also wearing an amazing black blazer herself, hence the picture)

omgod T E L L Me About it!!!!! these three collections were my favourites as well! they definitely saved the best (Paris) for last...don't you just wish you were there to take it all in, if only from the outside?!! the blazers at Stella totally caught my eye, I'm such a blazer gal, it's my go-to piece and the COLOUR at Dries. I'm telling you i used to wear so much colour! Actually black has only been a part of my wardrobe since last may and now it seems to be all I wear. Thankfully a collection like Dries will give me the inspiration to get back into colour. I loved the metallics and sheer combos in that collection. I just posted one of my favourite looks in my sidebar :)

DRIES VAN NOTEN WAS FANTASTIC. Definitely my favorite collection from any fashion week, because as you say, the colors are all so lovely together. There's nothing ridiculous or extravagant about it... but everything fits together so well. I want the sunglasses!

I watched a lot of the Stella McCartney runway show on her site, and all I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I'm in love with her looks.
