issey miyake a/w 2011 paris fashion week

this was the first time i've ever been at a fashion show so i was still in a state of shock until around halfway through the whole show (which by the way, lasts about only 10 minutes). i was in a pretty bad spot for photos so please don't mind the quality. the theme of this collection was ''the pen'', so instead of music, they had the models walk to a monologue story of a guy in paris who falls in love, and the journal that he writes in. it ended with all the models scribbling words on the wall behind the runway. i loved the early 1900s feel to the clothes, the purple tones spread throughout and the homage paid to literary paris. / c'était ma première fois à un défilé donc j'étais toujours un peu sous le choc jusqu'à presque la moitié du show (qui dure pas plus de 10 minutes). j'étais assez mal placée pour prendre des photos, désolée pour la qualité. le thème de cette collection était ''the pen'', donc au lieu de musique, les mannequins ont marché au son d'un monologue, une histoire d'un garçon amoureux à paris et du journal qu'il écrit. le défilé s'est terminé par des mannequins  écrivant sur un mur au fond du runway. j'ai adoré le look très 1900s de cette collection, l'usage subtil de couleurs violet et l'hommage à l'histoire littéraire de paris.
