Thanks to the beautiful dreamy director and photographer of Peut-Etre, on Saturday I was super dooper lucky to attend the Tsumori Chisato Paris fashion show at the opulent Westin Hotel. The grand ballroom of the hotel was the perfect setting to showcase the beautiful colourful pieces of the AW 13/14 collection.
Tsumori Chisato is a Japanese fashion designer who’s been around for quite a while now. She graduated from Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College and worked with the wonderful Issey Miyake for 13 years before starting her own line and then moving her fashion house to Paris. Since then her fashion followers have grown to love her quirky pieces known for their cuteness and manga-like aesthetic.
Lucky for me, this collection was no exception. The super tall models with their doll-like faces walked around the ballroom in beautiful circular shapes and silk printed fabrics inspired by the sea and even featured some little lobsters. Strong structural sleeves in knits, beautiful detailed embroidered, and some Cruella Deville (in a good way) coats, capes and hats made this collection one that would brighten any wintery blues.
In the last minute instead of standing during the show, I was lucky enough to be given seats. The only down part was that the lighting was not set for pictures to be taken from the seats, a real shame as the detailing in the embroidery and beautiful fabrics couldn’t be captured (désolée).
Given that I couldn’t capture all the beauty of the collection, some beautiful pieces courtesy of Vogue.
