Miuccia Prada ended the Paris Fashion Week with a Miu Miu collection inspired by becoming famous. The soundtrack of the show was from American Idol, there was a red painted dance floor and the models wore colorful design + heavy make-up.

The color palette had shades of silver, gold, red, blue and yellow in it.  Feminine dresses had pleated bottoms ended just on the knee. They were worn with a small belt to accentuate the waist. Everything looked a bit over the top, but with a theme like this it should.

Besides bright color Miuccia created prints with snakes, swans, exotic lotus flowers and stars referring to the Sunset Strip. By putting on one of these dresses you might not immediately become world-renown, but at least you will look famous.

Comme des Garçons Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2011

For spring/summer Rei Kawakubo decided to turn her clothes upside down. Quite unexpected, yet it turned out alright. The models wore many different jackets at once, which according to Kawakubo had everything to do with the multiple personalities theme of the show.

Jackets and coats in black, grey and white were the key items of the show. Kawakubo used lots of black leather and added corset-details, hair nets and multiple belts to her looks.

Some models carried so many clothes at least three models could be dressed in them. And at the end of the show pairs of models were dressed in clothes which actcually left room for a third person in the middle. It all was part of Kawakubo’s multiple personality-inspiration.

A daring collection, but that’s probably what makes Comme des Garçons such so successful.
