While Mansur Gavriel is made in Italy they definitely brought the Paris vibe to New York Fashion Week. Everything in the venue had splashes of Parisian flare. The color palette, the floral arrangements , the extra bubbly champagne, pastel coated desserts, and let’s not forget the tower of Maison Laduree macaroons the size of the Chrysler Building right in the middle of the room. I haven’t been to Paris yet, but when I think of tea time in that romantic city, it would’ve looked exactly how the Mansur Gavriel show was designed. It was all so elegant,breathtaking, and picture perfect.
I finished my dessert (pinkies up) just in time for showtime! It was all tea and teddy coats once the runway began. Coats! Coats! And more coats! In every shade of pink, every hue of blue, so much variety while making minimal lovers like myself melt on the inside after each look. Wool tweed jackets are a must have this season. Everyone from Mansur Gavriel, Chanel and every designer in between have carefully cultivated jaw dropping tweed coats and I’m all for it. They’re such a staple piece in every woman’s winter closet and this year in particular, designers have really stepped up their game. Say farewell to traditional tweed coats and hello to intricate detail, elaborate color combos and what looks like a custom fit. Mansur Gavriel is known for its minimalist sense of style,but this season really showcased a more feminine side of the label.Delicate pastel tones played well with their staple neutral color palette I have to say, it was nicely done and so refreshing to see. What I loved most about this season was the interchangeability of the collection. Every coat, glitzy ankle boot, and finely crafted handbag could be paired a million different ways within the collection and I absolutely love when designers do that! The entire collection was cohesive and timeless . I was overly impressed with,not only the collection,but the overall aesthetic of the show. There was so much attention to detail that it was hard to not fall in love with every piece. That’s all for now babes! Off to go sell my man for a new Mansur Gavriel coat.
