Paris Favorites Part 1! Miu Miu, Kenzo, Van Noten, Bui, and More!

Paris, for some reason, wants to be hard and sexy. Perhaps it’s in defense of their economic slip up, perhaps it’s preemptive of a revolution in fashion, but stiff fabrics, hardened silhouttes, an abundance of unwashed leather, infrequent prints, and softness completely reined gave Paris that clear, focussed “look but you can’t touch” alluring and provocative hardness.

There’s no moto, but it’s obvious the Parisian girl prefers the two wheeled transport. There’s no silly makeup or overdone hair to hide her natural beauty.  My favorite trends: clean, light leather (such an oxymoron! I love it!), simple bows and asymmetric necklines, flowy skirts and structured blouses, draping, splashes of color. I’m inspired. So, so inspired.  Scroll down to see my favorites from Paris and tell me which ones you like!!
