Kate Moss’ Obsession – YSL Bags

We all know Kate Moss loves YSL bags, from the Downtown tote to the Muse bag.

She’s fronted many campaigns for YSL, but think her love goes deeper than being affiliated with the brand as she recently added a new bag to her collection – Yves Saint Laurent Le Sixième printed stingray bag.

Kate was in spotted in Paris recently looking effortlessly gorgeous wearing jeans and a blush shirt, as she and boyfriend Jamie Hince shopped at Prada before returning to the Ritz Hotel.

It was at this point we got to see her stunning new YSL bag.

Kate is the first celebrity to be seen with the YSL Le Sixième printed stingray bag, and I’m sure many others will follow.

The bag is currently begin sold exclusively via Net-A-Porter.com and YSL boutiques for £1,145/€1,395.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

John Galliano

Dita von Teese attended the John Galliano show wearing a lavender embroidered Christian Dior Resort 2010 plunging dress which tied at the waist.

The beautiful star wore her dress with a lust worthy pair of silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-Strap sandals.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand officially showed that they were a couple at this event.

She glowed in the front row wearing a pink strapless gown which had a floral embroidery detail snaking around her waist.

Miu Miu

Kate Moss and boyf Jamie Hince were in the front row at Miu Miu.

On the penultimate day of Paris Fashion Week it was very hot, so I admire Kate for wearing a turtle neck leather dress which must have been extremely uncomfortable.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels and a studded belt from her Kate Moss for Topshop collection.

Renee Zellwegger was at Miu Miu wearing a LBD.

If the rumours about her and Carolina Herrera no longer working together are true, Renee would have been shopping for a new BFF designer in Paris.

Giambattista Valli

The bold Leigh Lezark wore a Giambattista Valli peacock feather coat which makes her look like big bird from Sesame Street.

Elettra Rosselini’s look is more demure in a red dress with black heels.

YSL Spring 2010

My Paris Fashion Week adventure started at YSL.

I was invited to the YSL showroom to view the straight-off-the Spring 2010 runway collection.

The collection was laid out in 4 parts which represented the sweet country-style brand classic white blouses and peasant skirts to an urban utilitarian looks which included leather shorts which were slashed. A trend we’ve seen in other presentations.

One thing I could appreciate viewing the collection this way was Pilati expert tailoring.

There were many dresses which were above-the-knee, poufy and belted plus shirt-dresses were also included.

Pants were loose and high-waisted. Shorts were presented in both leather and toweling material plus pencil skirt were both khaki and leather.

Monsieur Laurent classic masculine looks with the feminine ambiguity were evident by the look Iris Strubegger wore including wide pants, a ruffle collared blouse and cropped tuxedo jacket.

I loved that the collection included coral pinks, cornflower blue and forest green, as Stefano Pilati usually favours a palette of black, white and grey.

When I viewed the Spring 2010 collection on Style.com I’ll admit I didn’t get the strawberry reference, so I asked what it represented.

The strawberries reference Yves Saint Laurent’s last Spring 2001 Haute Couture presentation in which Monsieur Laurent embroidered strawberries, pineapples and cherries to blouses.

Seeing the collection up close I also noticed that the black leather skirt also had strawberry appliqués.

Another benefit of seeing the collection up close is that you appreciate all the finer details.

Look 9 appears to be white dress trimmed with black leather ruffles, but they were actually 2 separate dresses.

Many of the YSL Fall 2009 bags had a “Y” sewn, so I loved that Look 39 had this same sewn in detail on the skirt.

The accessories were just as magnificent as the clothes.  Cuffs looked like tree bark and thorned vines.

The suede and leather sandals were studded, detailed with roses, trimmed with white leather and came in a variety of colours.

Kate Moss was one of the celebrities in the front row.

She arrived in a high end-high street mix of a YSL Fall 2009 dark grey coat/cape, paired with a sheer top, a black mini skirt and a studded belt from her Kate Moss for Topshop collection.

Katy Perry’s look was head-to-toe YSL as she paired the leather bustier with dark grey pants which she tucked into her boots.

Natalia Vodianova also arrived wearing a YSL leather-wool mix, pairing her look with a gorgeous pair of black crocodile YSL Imperiale pumps from the Fall 2009 collection.

01.10.09 In Her Closet

In Kate Moss’ Closet – Kate Moss For Topshop

Kate Moss was spotted returning home with her beau Jamie Hince after birthday shopping for her daughter Lila Grace birthday yesterday.

Her jumper was worn with a black blazer, black jeans and lace-up booties to complete her off-duty look.

London Fashion Week Front Row

Fashion Fringe & Christopher Kane

Regular readers will know that I’m constantly fascinated with how Donatella Versace takes one piece from the runway and creates a totally different look unique to her.

On her visit to London she created a black sleek pencil dress from a one-shoulder top she had presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

Should would’ve look fantastic in either look which is so great about her.

Her heels are from the Versus collection.

Matthew Williamson

Olivia Palmero a self confessed Topshop addict, wore a Matthew Williamson Zig-Zag dress with navy ankle booties.

She’s not quite sporting the ‘Palmero’, but a neat ponytail.

Marios Schwab

Anna Wintour hasn’t been to London Fashion Week in a very long while and her presence is a BIG deal.

She attended the shows of  London hippest designers Marios Schwab and Christopher Kane wearing a reptile – no doubt Prada – coat and a smile sans sunglasses, which is strange because it’s actually sunny in London.

Leigh Lezark wore a crystal print Marios Schwab mini dress which I think looks better with the runway sash tied to the waist.

Ashish

Michelle Williams was very much the ‘Sophia Bush’ of London Fashion Week, as she was everywhere.

She also pulled an ‘Anna Wintour’ by not wearing anything from the designers who’s shows she attended.

At the Ashish show she wore a cute coral tiered Jenny Packham dress and sunshine yellow peep-toes.

I love that jeweled detail on the neckline.

Bora Aksu

Michelle must have like the Ashish show so much that she then wore one of his pieces to the Bora Aksu show.

The black sequin tunic dress was covered names of places I’m sure she’s traveled to with Destiny’s Child.

I love the quirky shoes she paired with this dress.

Topshop Unique

Kate Moss looks more like she’s on vacation rather than sitting front row, but Kate being Kate can wear a trash bag and still work it in the front row.

PPQ

Sporting shearling jacket when it’s quite warm in London, Alexa Chung give us that ‘so hip it hurts’ look as she waited for the PPQ show.

She wore a LBD with a lace panel, booties and a Miu Miu cross body bag.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Joss Stone opts for a classic Westwood tartan ensemble with some questionable open-toe Westwood booties.

Michelle Williams arrived wearing a LBD with an asymmetrical hemline plus a bright fuschia dupioni blazer.

Sexy Christian Louboutin Calypso heels.

Nicola Roberts opted for a red shimmering dress with ankle strapped heels.

Nicola arrived with Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding who made a huge statement with her PVC mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti sculpted platform ankle boots with a bright red platform.

Luella

Every time I saw Peaches Geldof in New York she looked like a moody sulking teenager, even at the Marchesa show.

So I’m glad for two things: she smiling and she looks adorable wearing a Luella Spring 2009 lilac one-shouldered dress.

It’s not often I really like what she wears, but this a great look for her…sans tights.

Kate Moss For Topshop Fall 2009

The Kate Moss / Topshop collabo doesn’t look to be ending any time soon, in fact it seems to get stronger with each collection.

The Fall 2009 collection feels a lot more mature than previous collections.

You can expect the usual nods to vintage glamour and rock n’ roll chic, but the cutesy tea-dresses and heart print dresses have been replaced with investment pieces that have a tougher edge.

The collection includes a biker inspired leather jumpsuit, tailored jackets, sweaters, glittering party dresses, sheer blouses, strapless dresses, faux fur coats, sequin playsuits and many other exciting pieces.

The collection is due to go on sale August 27 in the UK.
