I <3 Paris Fashion Week
Since Miu Miu's winter collection was just absolutely terrible, I am excited to see that the spring/summer collection it totally the opposite. I'm really feeling the dark color palette for spring, the pleating and the distressing on the dresses. The 90's inspired makeup is really my thing too. I want it all!
Ann Demeulemeester is one of those designers who's collections can always be trusted. Her spring/summer 09 collection is not a let down either. I feel like the layered and knotted shirts would be something that I could totally execute myself. I am also loving the gothic inspired laceup sandal shoes.
Balenciaga is definately the odd one out of them all. The looks are very futuristic, similar to something they did in the 60's. I think the shoes which are actually tights with a shoe bottom, will be definately spring's most talked about phenomena.
Burberry Prorsum shows us that the ombre trend will continue in soft tones, the jewellery is chunky and socks are still in sandals. I really need to get my hands on more cardigans...
I absolutely adored Givenchy's fall/winter collection and it looks like the gothic theme continues in to the spring. Well, that suits me just right. I'm suddenly in a desperate need of leather, a long blazer and over the knee boots.

As a summary spring's top trends seem to be:
- short dresses
- over the knee boots
- crop tops
- black & white, beige
- open toe sandals and shoes
- distressed and wrinkled fabrics
- long blazers
- futuristic looks, 60's
What's your favourite look for spring? My vote goes for Givenchy, once again.
