(PARIS) All the fresh delights and sights from the front rows of Paris, packaged for your enjoyment.
BY VALENTINE UHOVSKI
Limi Feu--daughter of Yohji Yamamoto--practically opened Paris Fashion Week yesterday to the delight of supporters like Ikram Goldman. Feu first showed in Paris in October 2007, and now she commands one of themost powerful Asian editor and buyer followings on the planet. But her dad isn’t a part of the front row. Yamamoto usually takes his daughter’s show in from backstage, though today he sat in (gasp!) second. “Front row here is really not my place,” he explained to us. “This is really all about Limi.”
Dior Kiss from Charlize
We hear that Charlize Theron is en route to Paris for Dior, though it will be a quick trip. The Oscar winner is a presenter at the Kodak theater this year, and she’s due back in California nearly thirty hours after the show. Something tells us she’ll be wearing a Galliano creation after all that airline milage...
Meet Baby Morgan
Who’s the absolute youngest chicette in Paris this season? That would be 16-month-old Ada, daughter of Elle’s Alexis Bryan Morgan and Spencer Morgan. And guess what? She’s a ready-to-wear veteran, having already traveled for the shows last season. Today, she landed in Paris with her Dad via Continental and arrived to Charles de Gaulle rested and happy, having slept through the flight.
Rochas Seat Game
For some reason or another, the front row at section D was out of reach today. Hal Rubenstein and Cindy Weber Cleary were assigned second, Michael Carl third, and Booth Moore fourth, all while Miroslava Duma (a photogenic Russian freelancer) was seated first next to Sandy Brant. But the InStyle gang and others fought for respect and got it: all those mentioned above were promoted to better perches.
There are plenty of Fish celebrating their birthdays this month; Bill Cunningham’s birthday comes right after Fashion Week ends, on March 13th. But this artsy Pisces doesn’t believe in astrology. “I believe in creating your own destiny,” he said. “This zodiac stuff doesn’t do anything for me.”
Is Your Couch Made by Rick Owens?
Rick Owens entered the furniture design derby with his with his Evolution show in London, and now he’s taking his craftsmanship to New York. “I’ll be participating in a furniture show in New York in May,” he told us at the Gareth Pugh show. “But I’m still sorting out the details. It takes a lot of commitment--it’s expensive and it’s a lot of work. But I love challenges!”
Cassie’s Parisian Adventures
Cassie arrived to France for few days and took in her first RTW collection in Paris at Gareth Pugh. “But I’m still in a continental time daze,” she laughed. “I’m somewhere between L.A., New York and here. So to cope with the craziness, I went out for a nice delicious risotto as soon as I landed here.”
