Paul & Joe Fall Winter 2009 2010 Fashion Show Video
Wednesday March 11th, 2009 – Carrousel du Louvre – Salle Le Nôtre
“Les pièces clés from this collection are definitely the high, tight boots. You can wear them pleated or even squished. Every girl needs a great pair of boots for the Fall!” exclaimed Paul & Joe designer, Sophie Albou, backstage. Pulling aside one of the models before she changes out of her clothing, a beaming Sophie explained, “Everything in the collection is wearable and mixable. You can take this coat, this skirt and this top, and the result is amazing, even if it’s not from the same look.”
This season’s collection captivated us with its modern take on the Parisienne, balancing sexy, sophisticated looks while embodying a jovial, dynamic spirit. Keeping true to Paul & Joe’s roots, the audience needed little convincing in order to see themselves in the clothing: something that many buyers feel will greatly help to push the clothing from the store rack and into client closets.
Mixing sequin dresses with biker boots, grey dresses with expanded, unpadded shoulders, and leather wrap dresses with padded shoulders, Sophie signaled that Fall ’09 was all about dressing comfortably chic. Mini dresses with embroidered military shoulders (our favorite), Jodhpurs and even grey vintage fur coat (a nod to Sophie’s mother) add tinges of retro 80’s chic to the collection.
Some looks even sported beautiful glasses, hinting at Paul & Joe’s upcoming eyewear line that will be available in a couple of weeks.
The front row was filled up by Paris Vogue’s Carine Roitfeld, French actress Emmanuelle Beart and Karine Viard.
For the final passage, Sophie Albou ebulliently strutted the catwalk, “a la Gianni Versace” with models Angela Lindvall, Isabeli Fontana, Eniko Mihalik, Maryna Linchuk and Carmen Kass.
