Paris Fashion Week – Diary IV
The big day was finaly there! Chanel!
Before Chanel it was first time to get some fruit, water and medicine since Niels voice sounds like a smoking old man at the moment.
The Grand Palais right before the show of Chanel. The whole place was decorated with giant christals. We couldn’t believe we attended this amazing show. We are so extremely thankful to our friend.
This show was something we won’t ever forget. We have so much respect for Karl and his team. Chanel is just an amazing iconic fashion brand and we are truly honoured to have been part of this autumn/winter 2012 show. Soon we will go more into dept about the show, but here you can see the finale via the youtube movie we took. Excuse us that half of the movie is upside down. I think we just got a little nervous.

After this experience we had to chill for a moment. Otherwise we would been affraid we would get a fashion/hart attack. Especially since we knew that to other amazing designers were on the schedule: Paco Rabanne and Yves Saint Laurent. With some hot chocolate, coffee, sandwich we tweeted/facebooked/foursquared/whatsapp’t to let you all know how fabulous our morning was. Meanwhile Hunter Linda checked her goodiebag, and Hunter Niels practiced his pose with the Chanel lookbook.
After the little coffee break we made a pitstop at Zara. Hunter Linda as well as Hunter Niels both got some items for the summer.
Second fashion visit was the showroom of Yves Saint Laurent. Fashion shows are fantastic, since they give you so much adrenaline, however showroom visits are sometimes even better to get an idea about the collection. You could see the collection up close, feel the fabrics, and see all the detailing.
The fall/winter 2012 collection from Yves Saint Laurent was the last collection for Stefano Pilati. Probably the reason he left is that his style is a little too far from the classic designs of Yves Saint Laurent. This is reflected in the collection as well. Some designs of the collection are more extreme, not very wearable, but perfect for editorial shoots. Like the wire netting dresses from steel. While other designs were very classic so more recogniable Yves Saint Laurent. The classic silhouettes and cuts. We were impressed about the collection. We especially loved the combination of materials in the designs. Can’t wait to see the white dress on the red carpet. Curious who is the lucky one.

Our daily crepes-moment at the gardens of the Louvres.
Last show of the day, at least for us, was Paco Rabanne. Again hosted in the Grand Palais, but in the smaller space. Beautiful Daphne Guiness was one of the attendees. A very sexy and modern show. Lot’s of gold, bright blue and fur detailing.
Time to get in the metro again, change and go for dinner.

And to finish the day, a glass of cote-du-rhone and a steak tartare. Oh boys, what a day!
