Runway Rock: Paris Fashion Week, Part Un
Tracks straight off the catwalks at Carven and Roland Mouret. Bonne ecoute!
Whenever we end up at a fashion show, we glean new inspiration that we can use in our everyday lives. At the shows in New York, we fell in love with Thom Browne's patterned-tights-with-flat-alligator-bootie look, Altuzarra's leather fringe bags and Delpozo's velvet turtlenecks (which, surprisingly, are harder to find at American Apparel than one would think). And in Paris, even though Fashion Week is only a few days in, we're already seeing outfit tricks we want to cop from Vionnet (nude leather pants and pastel tops, anyone?) Roland Mouret (who knew maroon and magnolia-yellow looked so good!) and Carven (give us an A-line mini, stat).
Another area where we're picking up new ideas? The runway music. These Parisians know how to boogie (never mind that last time we were in town, we introduced one tres cool bar owner to the beauty of Hall and Oates records).
Here are a few jams we've heard on the Paris Fashion Week runways of Roland Mouret (who Rosamund Pike wore to the BAFTAs) and Carven (where Solange showed up in groovy red fur) thus far — in turn, they'll be making their way back to our L.A.-based car stereo very, very soon (unless we stay here forever to eat croissants and be tortured by our art, that is).
