*See Book WINNER at the bottom of this post!
Note: Just want to say that my heart and thoughts go out to the people of Paris and France who are dealing not only with another national lockdown but the horror of these gruesome terrorist attacks.
I’m a little late for my annual review of Paris Fashion Week which wrapped up last month. Since so much of it was virtual, it took me a while to go through all the designers and their videos.
Even after all this research I really couldn’t tell you what is IN or OUT for the coming season, and it really doesn’t matter because none of us will have too many places to wear any of it anyway!
Like life right now, this fall’s fashion featured more theatre of the absurd than usual, and below I have showcased some of my favourites examples.
New York designer Thom Browne is known for his elite suit collections. This is only the second year that he has produced a women’s line for Paris where he also showcased suits.
I can’t even guess what’s the cow, and giraffe heads (feature pic) are about!
Comme des garçons
I am partial to this the wacky Japanese designer below with the French name – Comme des garçons (translates literally as “Like Boys”) but I cannot imagine too many boys (or girls) wearing these outfits.
I admit I might have been one of the last women to ditch shoulder pads in the late 1980’s but Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga seems to have launched a comeback.
This dress allows you to poke the eye of anyone who comes too close! Get away!
Ok, at least they could have made the sleeves symmetrical in this next design?
Pink WAS a very popular colour at the show, and this French designer below created a video using just one model who showcased his collection in a pink fuchsia box.
Stunning designs also.

Thankfully Dior’s couture 2020 collection was very Dior; elegant, sophisticated.
It stole the show with a video in storytelling format titled Le Mythe Dior.
It features miniature versions of the house’s 37 newest couture creations – an homage to Théâtre de la Mode, the 1945 event which saw some of Paris’s most talented couturiers create miniature doll-sized versions of their creations to promote French couture across the globe during the war.
The video is enchanting. Take a look.
That’s a wrap from My Paris Fashion File.
Now please excuse me while I go and try on my new giraffe head!
A la prochaine mes amis!
