10 favourites - Paris-

Paris deserves ten favourites, basically because I couldn't choose only five. Although the fashion week wasn't very spectacular, the Lanvin show compensate it all.

Givenchy wasn't as good as the previous season-aren't we tired of polka dots?-, but I still can see interesting things.

Junya Watanabe surprised everybody with a collection full of colour and innovative silhouettes. One of my favourites.

Lanvin was, in my opinion, the best show of the week. Albert Elbaz creations haven't looked this good in years.

Stella McCartney clothes were clean, fresh and wearable. I could feel an Ibicencan vibe. I admire how she faces the problem of not doing leather shoes.

MiuMiu looked much better than Prada, this season. Very girly and funny. This top reminds me of a first holy communion dress. I suppose babydolls haven't gone yet.

Gimmick was the word most people use to refer to the Victor&Rolf show. I can't decide whether I like it or not. Kiki de Montparnasse came to mind when I saw that black strapless dress.

The final part of Sonia Rykiel's show was a fairytale. Models had so much fun.

Charles Anastase collection was full of taffeta and volume. The kind of clothes a XVI teenager would wear.This fantastic pic was published at a shaded view of fashion.

I only fancy the very last part of Nina Ricci's collection. The ready-to-wear was too Gothic, and the colours were too dark for a spring/summer line.

I applaud Alexander McQueen and his homage collection to Isabella Blow.

i loved Lanvin too. everythig was just right. and Alexander MQueen did it again. he creates myths on the catwalk everytime (but didn't like the 'homage' to isabella thing. it seems quite hypocritical and death came first- too late mr. lee!)

Good choices. I would certainly have included Junko Shimada (maybe instead of Stella Mc Cartney) and the unexpected surprise in the season, the extremely energetic show and looks by a Paris newcomer Manish Arora (instead of Theyskens at Nina Ricci who really did a poor job this season). What about Martin Margiela, maybe you did not see it?
