First View Paris Womenswear FW2014: Mini Mini

Mini is a topic in Paris and we want to share it with you.
Lanvin goes costumy with intergalactic references in a square cut boxy mini dress with swinging metal fringe. A sculptural look with a weightless appeal. We call this mini with gravity.
Miuccia Prada for Miu Miu takes the banal, the ordinary and everyday and made it desirable and luscious. She stages young girls in windbreakers and pea coats, with rucksacks but nevertheless very chic. Girly dresses that reveal the knees, frivolous with a sporty twist.
Slimane dresses Little Red Riding Hood for Saint Laurent, with a wiff of Tinkle Bell esprit. Poppy capes that cover the Parisian classic – the little black dress. Casual extravaganza for pretty pop princesses.
Nicolas Ghesquière was listening to the girls for Vuitton – what they want, what they need. Joy was the word. Cosmic holographic coatings adorn zipped shifts in subtle skin shades in A-line cuts with a 60s vibe.
All lighthearted and leggy!
