See You in Paris

Hello my lovelies,  Getting so excited! I  am leaving for Paris today and hope to bring you posts on my  adventures from Paris in the springtime.  I have brushed up on my french  and did some research on some fashion must see's,including the Paris flea markets.   My friends have rented a villa and I will be staying near the Latin Quarter, 2 miles from the Eiffel tower!  Needless to say I must visit Laduree for some sweet and delicious macroons. Today I show Sonia Rykiel fashion.  Who better to represent France.  Sonia  was born in  Paris, and knows how to  design beautiful chic clothking.  Loved her spring collection! 
                            Au Revior!

Carven Fashion in a Bow

Carven  collection delights Spring 2011 in Paris and it is  just the third season in the label's new incarnation, and already sold everywhere from stalwart Paris department stores to edgy boutiques. That has something to do with the clever, versatile way Guillaume Henry  builds the collection, cutting a simple sleeveless shift, say, in a black and white landscape print and offering it with a removable shirt collar in contrasting point d'esprit. Without the collar, it's destined for Printemps or Galeries Lafayette; with it, Opening Ceremony or Dover Street Market. Similarly, the deeply cutaway bodice of a full-skirted navy and black cocktail dress revealed a camel cashmere bra. You could just as easily wear it with a favorite button-down.

This Red White and Blue is from Fashion East
and  wanted to end the post with a Memorial Day Fashion!

Chanel in NYC

After seeing the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met my friend and I had lunch at Bergdorf's... The exhibit  by the way was extraordinary and it is worth seeing. His creative mind pushed all the boundaries of artistry.  The exhibition has been extended until August 7, 201. So you still  have plenty of  time.  Also, took a few photos of the Chanel window displays on  57th Street  as well as Bergdorf's window on 5th Ave.  What I didn't expect was the logo to super impose on the building across the street  dripping with pearls. It appears larger than life!
