The results of the whirlwind Paris Couture shows are sending the Internet into a tizzy and causing some serious lust for designer dresses (hello, Dior). But it’s lingerie/ready-to-wear brand Etam’s runway show that I’m really loving. No angel wings, diamond bras, or collegiate themes – just great staging at the Grand Palais, models strutting in Louboutins, chic themes, and more importantly, immensely wearable looks.
The show opened with romantic, Marie Antoinette-inspired looks: luxurious pink-tinged locks, flowers in the hair, pastel ribbons and pearls around the neck, and even lambs!
Basic black was accessorized with lace, polka dots, silver chains, and spiky leopard-print Louboutin booties.
On the other end of the spectrum, a mixture of bright colors reign – even on the lips. Mix blue and yellow, pink and orange, and go no darker than red and turquoise for hanging out in your boudoir…or, you know, chilling at home.
Are you there, Sonia Rykiel? Alright, the lady herself didn’t have a hand in the brand’s S/S collection, but the hair and colors definitely have her influence.
The final part of the show was devoted to model Natalia Vodianova’s collaboration with the brand.
If you’re looking to procrastinate for 20 minutes, you can check out parts of the show below:
Performers included Beth Ditto, French rapper Joey Starr, The Kills, Karen Elson, Boy George, Janelle Monae, Andrew Wyatt, and Mark Ronson.
I do find the VS shows entertaining, but certainly not as fun as they used to be.
What do you think of Etam’s collection and runway presentation? Do you prefer the Victoria’s Secret shows?
