i haven't gone through all of my s/s 2013 rtw int'l fashion week favorites yet, but so far nyc, london, and milan haven't really done anything for me. i liked acne, rad by rad hourani, helmut lang, gucci was okay, and cavalli...? i definitely wasn't crazy about prada, dolce & gabbana, or dsquared2. and don't get me wrong, i can appreciate kooky and unwearable and showiness for showiness' sake, but so far a lot of this stuff has just been kind of just blah for me. (which, i realize, is 100% irrelevant, since the chances of me wearing any of this are slim at best. but still. i like to look!).
but it's paris fashion week! i always get SO EXCITED for my favorites - gareth pugh, rick owens, ann demeulemeester, haider ackermann, aka the usual suspects. and of course i always look forward to dior, chanel, isabel marant, issey miyake, lanvin, balmain, givenchy, mmm, viktor & rolf, balenciagaaaaaa ETC ETC ETC.
thank goodness for paris.
gareth pugh showed today, and while i wasn't blown away like i have been in the past (notably s/s 2011, s/s 2012, f/w 2010, okay actually everything, so nevermind) i still thought this collection was very beautiful and both what we can expect of pugh as well as unexpected.

i love the slicey thing he sometimes does with his materials
