French Fashion, State Your Case: Retailers Weigh In Photo by Giovanni Giannoni:   
Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman: “It’s a great tribute to the overall season when choosing one collection above all is so difficult. However, Céline keeps bubbling up to the top of the catwalk.  You know when something’s a game-changer when you want to eradicate your closet and restock it with a new vision like this. From the catwalk to the Stores.
David Rubenstein, vice president and general merchandise manager, Jeffrey New York: “My single-favorite collection is Céline. The catwalk show had an incredible energy. The collection is constantly evolving, and Phoebe is always pushing the needle forward.  It all just seemed like what women will want to wear.” French fashion impacts the industry as usual especially on the catwalk.
Tancrède de Lalun, merchandise manager for men’s and women’s wear, Printemps: French fashion, “Céline straight from the catwalk. After revolutionizing fashion four years ago, Phoebe Philo needed to renew herself and she did it with brio and talent. She opens up a world of possibilities for all the brands over the next few seasons, and what I like is that she was able to take a risk and reinvent herself exactly when she needed to.”  French fashion is an interesting factor in all of this.

Paris '50s Glamour Style

Colorful With Dazzling Details Red-Carpet Preview?

Twice a year, during the haute couture collections, the French fashion industry contemplates an existential crisis: Is the tradition of hand-made dresses and suits costing hundreds of thousands of dollars still relevant?
Couture week in Paris—now whittled down to a mere three days—offered several ripostes this week, from fashion as art at Christian Dior to luxury jeans at Chanel and one-of-a-kind ostrich feather miniskirts from newcomer Maxime Simoëns.
Couture week raises the spectacle of runway shows to its highest form. This season, the catwalks were awash in sequins, pearls, crystals and even snaps embroidered on dresses. A chaste theme of minimal bare skin and below-the-knee looks ran throughout.
A New Wave of Color 
There was also plenty of color, from hot pink at Gaultier Paris to ruby red at Armani Privé—a penchant that could herald a rainbow of hues on the Oscars' red carpet.
