Haider Ackermann

The masculine trend is still going strong thanks to Colombian designer Haider Ackermann,* who always manages to make an oversized outfit look polished and chic. This season he struck a balance between the toughness of menswear and the gracefulness of a woman, sending down the runway a sea of softly draped trousers, sweeping overcoats and dresses with plunging necklines and sexy cutouts. It’s nonchalance to the extreme, and we couldn’t be more intrigued.

*We offer Haider Ackermann in selected stores. Please contact a Designer Specialist at 1.877.543.7463 for more details.

Rise and shine! I knew the day was going to be a great one after I saw the Junya Watanabe show this morning. One of my favorite shows all season! Everything from the clothing to the hair to the the piano music that went forward and backward in all sorts of tempos! This is why j’adore la mode!

Immediately after was the Haider Ackermann show—gorgeous and simple, clean and austere. (Kind of sounds like I’m describing a chardonnay, right? LOL.) True vision and talent. Woo-hoo to Haider.

I’m always on the hunt for new collections for the Pop-In Shops. These would be perfect for our upcoming surf-inspired shop in mid-April! Stay tuned!

Oooh la la! Bonjour, la Tour Eiffel! My, how big you are. During Fashion Week, I like to find non-fashion things to do as well. And what could better fit that bill than the Salon International de l’Agriculture? It was an entire expo center on the outskirts of Paris dedicated to education about farm animals, new farming methods and techniques, and tons of foods and wines…

…and cheeses…

…and a booth dedicated to dog tees. Tempting!

After all that running around, I stopped at a great Korean restaurant called JanTchi, in the 2nd arrondissement. A quick veggie bibimbap for me and a long laugh with my friend Joey temporarily refueled me to keep it moving.

My dear friend Olympia Le-Tan presented an adorable collection entitled “I Put a Spell on You.” And she is truly magical.

And for dinner after my dinner: a jar of cornichons with my good friend Tomoko from Barneys. We caught up at Cinq-Mars and I couldn’t stop thinking/talking about the Dries show.

The enormous Damien Hirst butterfly piece that was paired with the Schiaparelli butterfly dress had to be rolled into the museum. (In my head, it looks like these French people rolling in a giant wheel of cheese. I’m quietly chuckling to myself.) And i just loved his reference to all these famous Hollywood kisses. Très romantique! Bisous!
