Paris Top Three Spring 2008 Collections

There was a fun pajamas party at Stella McCartney. Her latest collection showed pretty and wearable clothes in a very laid-back, signature style with a smart adjustment of the season's trends: flowing seventies (again, seventies!) flower printed silk dresses and jumpsuits, blue silk “pajamas” tops or shirtdresses. There were also sweet little ruffled “nightgowns” and fluid trousers worn with white and khaki blazers.

Sonia Rykiel is one of the first names that come in my mind when I think of French designers. Her show is always a happy moment of Paris fashion week. Look no further for flirty frocks: la petite robe noir, daisy-print chiffon or polka dots tulle dresses came along with Rykiel signature pieces: bell sleeve flare spring coats, jumpsuits, cardigans, sweater dresses, velvet suits and frocks and fine knits, all in a flavored palette from vanilla to saffron to cognac.

Christian Dior's 60th birthday celebration showed more of the practical, commercial side of this label but that doesn’t minimize Galliano’s genius. The theme was an overview of twenties-through-forties styling and there was pinstripe three-piece suits, white-tie tailcoats, forties bold-shouldered jackets and trenches, jazz-age chiffon and thirties satin dresses. The style journey arrived to present fashion with modern touches like softer laid-back tailoring, zebra and leopard print and those adorable handbags.
