I have received an invitation to discover the new Stella McCartney store in the Palais Royal gardens. By bringing it into the shop you might have a present and the possibility of a personal shopper on command. This is the link: http://ase.emv3.com/HM?a=A9X7CkD7ULW4sOWEIOeyTYnggQ.
If you plan to be in the city until the 31st of October and spending an insane amount of money in some of the insanely desirable chantilly lace dresses from McCartney's last collection, it is definitely worthwile. And the shop is quite something.

So the whole Fashion Fauna is migrating again, this time coming to Paris. From tomorrow on, I will be the one to suffer on heels instead of comfortably writing from home (wearing my fetish flipflops). Interesting shows tomorrow: Tim Van Steenbergen, Limi Feu, Rochas and of course... Gareth Pugh at the Palais deTokyo. I still don't know how many shows I'll see because, frankly, it gets quite tiring running all around town in my 12 cm sandals, since I still don't have a car with a chauffeur waiting for me after every show. Maybe the best thing about Fashion week is "forgetting" some of the shows and going instead to Angelina (226 Rue de Rivoli) for tea and cakes. But I'll try and do my best this time. And of course I'll keep you posted on shows, front row, street style, parties and general gossip.

1. London is no doubt becoming hotter and hotter in the mainstream fashion scene.
2. British designers no longer have to go to the world to become known- the world is now coming to them.
3. London is a cool, young, easy-going yet fashionable city. But that's no news to anyone, is it?
There have been some shows everybody is still talking about... The biggest new trend is light colours mixed with feminine, sultry shapes. I'm particularly happy about this, since I have always liked it! Burberry came back to London for the 25th anniversary of the Fashion Week with a display of drapings and short dresses... Some of them were absolutely lovely and covetable, but I still have a softspot for the more classic trench coat.
