Yesterday I showed you pictures of the Balmain & Rue du Mail show, today I hope to amaze you with some other GREAT shows. (Some of you commented & I read this on other blogs too, the Balmain show was indeed a LOT like the spring/summer collection, and I couldn't agree more. I still love what he presented though, I just hope this won't be what we'll be seeing from Balmain for the next 5 seasons! Some change would be nice!)

Ok, back to business, I have some really great pictures from the Nina Ricci show. I was watching them with my mouth hanging open, totally surprised. You see, there were all these rumours going around that Nina Ricci FIRED Olivier Theyskens (I mean, seriously?) and I thought for his last collection (if the rumours are indeed true) he would, I don't know, keep it simple or so? Well, he didn't (and I'm GLAD he didn't!). See for yourself!


I don't really like the shoes in terms of being 'pretty', but they truly are amazing.

I love this glitter unitard, not very wearable, but gee, can I say amazing again?

And here are some of the looks:

Theyskens still makes THE most beautiful gowns.

Ok and I'm not finished yet, here are pictures from the Rick Owens show. Amazing shapes as usual, and even a colour other than black & grey, LIGHT BLUE!

Nina Ricci's 3rd to last dress - jaw droppingly beautiful!!!

The shoes are OMG CRAZY!!! That's an incredible feat of engineering to make them, an another set of skills altogether to walk in them! :)

O my! Theyskens really wanted to go out with a bang. They are entirely ferocious! All the curvy, sculptural gowns.

Ik was ook zooo verbaasd toen ik hoorde dat Theyskens weg gaat bij Nina Ricci, 't is echt 1 van m'n favoriete designers. 'k was al wat gewend geraakt aan z'n heel meisjesachtige, romantische silhouetten maar wat hij dit seizoen deed is inderdaad ZO fantastisch, ben blij te zien dat hij nog veel meer in z'n mars heeft dan wat we tot nu toe zagen.

En oh ja, echt Schaduw van de Wind lezen, 't zal je niet teleurstellen waarschijnlijk! :D
Waar woon je (ongeveer), als ik dat mag vragen?
