Isabel Marant AW13 Boot of the Season

March 11, 2013

Trust me on this one - these Isabel Marant boots are THE boot of the AW13 season.  Isabel Marant's AW13 show was nothing short of spectacular during Paris Fashion Week.  I am always a huge fan of her collections but this season was a different cool factor that went down the runway.  A change from her previous collections focusing on all things Americana (ie. cowgirl and Hawaiian), this collection was more European and for me very Parisian chic.

And now, let's talk about these boots.  Every season no matter the shoes, Isabel Marant's wedge heels, ankle booties and velcro-strap sneakers are always backordered or out of stock.  For the AW13 season, I predict will be no different especially with these these boots - a play on her well-known wedge heel and velcro sneaker.  Luckily for everyone reading MFS, Moda Operandi's Isabel Marant trunk show went live today where these boots are available for preorder and delivered straight to your door come Fall.  See the trunk show here and cut the line!

Paris Fashion Week AW13: Alexander Wang's Debut Collection for Balenciaga

March 5, 2013

The AW13 Balenciaga show was newly appointed Creative Director Alexander Wang's first collection for the brand.  Despite mixed review, I quite liked the show especially because it was very much a reflection of Balenciaga as a brand.  The collection was black and white (very Alexander Wang) but with intricately structured pieces and classic silhouettes that only a luxury fashion house can achieve with credibility.  Alexander Wang is known for his own sportswear line often filled with drapery. This show was a departure from what we normally see from him in a positive way.'s video recap I included above I think critiqued the show very well.  Take a look and let me know, what do you think about Alexander Wang's debut collection?   

Paris Fashion Week: Menswear A/W'13

January 21, 2013


Dries Van Noten

Louis Vuitton


A glimpse of my favourite looks from the final installment of the A/W'13 European menswear shows coming from Paris Fashion Week.  Three distinctive trends stood out: leather, print (especially PJ-print for men which I actually love since it was my favourite trend of 2012 for women), and again oversized trousers as seen in the London shows here.  All the shows played on volume this season which is definitely a more casual change from the easy-to-look-good-in tailored look.  European men's shows are now over but women's shows are just around the corner.  Excited to see what's next.
