I love this lady's massive pieces of jewellery. I saw her in a restaurant and had to speak to her. She makes the necklaces herself and they are sold at Colette. I don't know much about the guy at the bottom pic, but his enormous cancer necklace is absolutely eye striking.

This gentleman is wearing what has to be the definition of a layered and textured outfit. It is four layers of different materials - cotton, silk, beads and wollen blends. In an outfit where so much is happening it is nice to see that the vest and the golden trousers actually matches.
There were a lot of gloomy people outside the Viktor & Rolf show. By gloomy, I mean wearing dark - dark being either punked, goth, dominatrix (?) or just plain fab as Beth Ditto in the two pictures below!
One of the models!
I love this girl's look! The details on the dress and the big shoes is a great contrast to her young and cute face.

The Demeulemeester show was located in what I think was an old school in St. German. It suited the show very well. We got everything we could expect out of an Ann D show, dark, black and gloomy. But there was also something warm. Amongst the dark wool blended, leather and feathered creations there were red (with a touch of orange) leather coats and pants - a nice and perhaps also unexpected contrast. Demeulemeester made her girls wear A LOT of feathers. There were feathered vests, feathers under sleeves and jacket linings. I also loved the leather "chain mail", made of long strips of braided leather. You can see it on the top picture. What was also fascinating was the hair. It was tightly pulled back into a messed up bun which reminded of feathers. They were styled with a lot of wet gel at the sides, something I thought would resemble the shimmer of the feather.

The Viktor & Rolf A/W show at Paris Fashion Week was fantastic! The collection was all about multifunctional clothes - jackets and coats in particular. The designers undressed one model standing in the middel of the catwalk, and made new outfits out of every garment. The models coming on the runway wore beautiful bejeweled bodys. There were several coats that could be worn in different ways. Some of them also turned out as dresses.
The collection was inspired by the industrious and the mechanical.
