Finally. It’s Paris Fashion Week. The Fashion Week that forum members hold above all other Fashion Weeks. With such high standards, some collections are bound to disappoint. And it’s equally notable when others rise above the pack. So here’s a look at the collections forum members thought warranted special recognition – both good and bad.

THE HITS:

Christophe Lemaire

“So utterly sublime as always… easily my favorite of the season so far.” [Scott]

“As much as I love collections that are sublimely ornate, there is something to be said for a collection like this, that is just completely and utterly wearable while remaining envy-inducing.” [Moofins]

“Brilliant! I love the feel of his clothes. So many designers make clothes so full of pretense and gimmicks for fashion victims and fashion bloggers. His clothes take me back to… when clothes were easy, glamorous, yet so chic.” [disco54]

Dries Van Noten

“He certainly struck gold, wow, this is exquisite. So many gorgeous fabrics, and details (that ruffle work!), and silhouettes – you could divide this in half and still have two great collections. What a dream. Best of the season, BY FAR.” [HeatherAnne]

“I didn't think this brand would be able to top last season, but I was happily mistaken. Stunning.” [Moofins]

“In his hands gold isn't tacky, ruffles aren't overbearing and brocade becomes so cool. One of the most exciting collections of the season for sure.” [Wolkfolk]

Nina Ricci

“There isn't is a single piece of clothing that I don't like. I've looked through this collection three times finding more and more to love… Honestly I just want it all, every single piece.” [fantastical]

“I'm really not a fan of Peter [Copping]'s too-sweet, too-soft outcomes but I must say this season he found a really nice balance. The lace and floral pieces are pretty in the best sense of the word. Delightful collection.” [Marc10]

“Beautiful, feminine, elegant, clean… and I could go on with adjectives like these. It's obviously a very strong and lovely collection!” [yesitsdagny]
