Best of Paris Fashion Week- Fall 2011 from Balenciaga, Chloe, Miu Miu, Rick Owens, Carven

Best of Paris Fashion Week- Fall 2011. Runway Review Snippets: Our top 5 from Paris are Balenciaga, Chloe, Miu Miu, Rick Owens, Carven. Paris Fashion Week, as always is the most directional of cities when it comes to silhouettes and attitudes.This season, without exception, the Parisian runways offers a dramatic shift in form to a more oversized, almost cocoon shape and many with strong exaggerated shoulders. A shape that is strikingly visual on the runway and may need some modifying for the everyday woman not to appear bulky.There's a very distinct shift in shapes that you should note, both for next fall, and what you can scout on on the racks now. Did you notice that Chloe made it on our list again? Yes, it's a favorite collection here.Our VagabondNyc's share the Top Five Best of Paris Fashion Week for you… videos too. — S.H.

A girl could lose her head. Or at least spin it around so many times that it will catapult her neck and land in a frisson of colliding fashion seasons that all ineditably fall into one: What looks right on YOU now! Spring is shown in late summer (at least by the scroching temps merely a week before NYFW). Fall in early winter. Then, there’s resort… resort? You have yet to think about autumn leaves!In this insane goggle-muggle where fashion is shown in the time frame of when retailers need to place their orders for the following season and magazines need to pull for their three-month lead times, Fashion Week has taken a life of its own and is reported the nano-second that the model’s Louboutin hits the catwalk. What human with a robust life outside of the business could keep track of it all?Since the smaller, more gentle fashion season of resort can be the first taste of what’s on trend for spring or a healthy mix of fall transending into a more nuanced state, we bring you resort runway 2010 from around the globe. Not in store just yet, but a heady update of what you may see on the Spring catwalks next week. Get inspired to create your own trendsetting season morph.
