Paris Fashion Week SS12 - Valentin Yudashkin

The show of Russian designer Valentin Yudashkin was held at the Westin Hotel in their Imperial Lounge, in hindsight... I should have worn something classier than vans, shorts and a ripped tshirt!

After the various enhanced and emotionless faces are seated front row the show beings with crisp white shirts tucked into layered white skirts, worn with tiny, almost sporty white tailored jackets and a racer back vest. The next skirts feature a bejewelled print in bold orange and purples, these become jackets in the same print with divine bejewelled lapels, dripping semi-precious stones.  Adding an edge of city slicker one of the jackets was worn with a pair of tan city shorts and a pale blue shirt keeping the look classy, sophisticated and feminine.

The evening wear was to die for! Staring with layered fantasy style dresses with full skirts and underbust embellishment, becoming all out sheer dresses covered in the jewelled embellishment this collection featured so much of.  Hem lines varied with multi length maxis, full flowing maxis and mini dresses as well. Split side maxis in white, nude, smokey blue and other pastels with flashes of silver featured gathered detailing as swathes of gathered fabric gave the dresses an asymmetric quality, wrapped tight around waists and exposing classy sheer cut outs.  
The idea of the over embellished evening wear sounds garish and crass but this collection was sophisticated, classy and utterly gorgeous.

  1. レイバン サングラスと同じデザインで、格安なサングラスを探していた。ネットでとんでもなく安く、見るから怪しいショップがあって、安いから試してもいいと思って、レイバン RB2140を一本買ってしまった。注文してから一週間後には到着だが、レイバン aviatorっぽいサングラスが届いた、ガッカリした。もう二度とあんなショップ利用しない。
