Paris Fashion Week

Alas, the fashion weeks are over and we can now all prepare ourselves for next winter (or not. As all I want right now is the warmth, the smell of cut grass and endless days of sunshine which go on until late in the evening.)

Here are a few of my favourites from la semaine a Paris.

Vivienne Westwood was typically Westwood and utterly irresistible. I love how she has embraced being British because, with it being 2012, who can blame her? 

Stella McCartney produced clothing which will see most girls striving to get their hands upon and the electric blue decorated with paisley designs is immediately alluring to the eye. The sporty aspects of the collection is also stylish and attractive.

 The dresses at Valentino are elegant and pretty and I love the use of leather, especially in the form of a cape paired with the slick knee-length skirt.

Soooo many suits to feast your eyes upon at Miu Miu! Each one is charismatic and full of life, encouraging others to be free and fun with what they wear. 

Everything is fresh and inviting at Balenciaga and it is as though Nicolas Ghesquiere has arrived back from a trip to the future where everyday people are taking holidays to the moon, travelling in spaceships, wearing clothes such as the ones found in this collection.

Set within a crystal and amethyst palais, the Chanel show is a reminder of the beauty within the legendary brand (not that we have forgotten, mind) and the glittery eyebrows, tweed and blouses in green, indigo and purple, and the textured sapphire are all gem-like in themselves.

The ombre effect clothing and the jewels and lace at Collette Dinnigan are beautiful.

And finally, I just want to curl up and sleep amongst the Alexander McQueen collection.
Doesn't it look extremely cosy?!
The use of fur which has been widely seen over the past few weeks has been taken to the extreme here with big and embraceable coats and built out dresses- blocked and fluffy at the bottom, uniquely formed at the arms and shoulders, and heavy and striking, gypsy wedding-style but for the very upmarket.
