This season, like most fashion buyers, we were at home “virtual” reviewing the collections on our computer. This Fashion Week, less than half the fashion houses were there, and events were held outside in the Tuilleries Garden, under cover from the wind and rain.
The vibe in Paris matched the rainy, foreboding weather. Our colleague at Mode DEVERNOIS in Paris said: "It is too quiet”.
We really wanted to be there in person because Paris is the city of fashion. It has the tradition and people behind the scenes to produce PK’s DEVERNOIS ready -to wear, which we tailor to the body in-house.
Let us show you what we are wearing on our October “virtual” buying trip to Paris using the Fall/Winter 2020 Collection which has just arrived in-store!
On a buying trip we like to try on just about every style, work with the model, think about how the clothes feel on the body, and what we need from them this season
Our style of life is completely different now. It’s a more intimate relationship with what we wear because we don’t see so many people. We want to feel comfortable. For us, ”classy and comfortable” go hand-in -hand, and this applies to women of all ages.
We are outdoors more.The varying shades of sunlit blue are chic and the silhouette is easy.
Paris is our dream destination. The French style is always fluid and feminine. And as a fashion business during this transient time, we need to head for higher ground to survive. Paris is haute.
We all have certain colors that define our lives - grays, blacks and charcoals might make us sad-but they work as companion colors.You need them to create others which are more joyful.
Au Revoir Paris!
The last day of Paris Fashion Week, the music is up, people are exhausted and the champagne is for all. But that’s not it, of course, for Paris Fashion Week is about the friendships forged, people from all over the world, Paris becomes a village of like minded people .
Although this marks the end of our fashion show...
It's time to reach for that coupe du champagne!!
