The Parisian shows have been a total dream for SS10. Balenciga did Street Nomad, Viktor and Rolf did Fairytale Romance with hard angular lines and Alber Elbaz just did what he does best, wonderful feminine dressing at Lanvin. Surely the most anticipated show in Paris though had to be the debut catwalk collection from Phoebe Philo for Celine? It definitely was for me.
I have subtly been drawing comparisons between Phoebe and her old sparring partner Ms Stella McCartney and imagining my very own fantasy fashion warfare. Where Pheobe did lots of utilitarian sleek leather, Stella did over the top frou-frou. Where Stella did bold paint box jewel colour, Phoebe did monochromatic nudes with black.With all these polar opposites who won the war? Well lets be honest the winner has to be the consumer. It seems fashion's future is looking very bright next Spring.
