Paris Fashion Week: The Best Shows I Didn't Tell You About...and Kanye West

Givenchy F/W 2012

Comme des Garçons F/W 2012

It's inevitable when one covers a fashion week that they may, uh, miss a couple of key points...

Or maybe that's just me.

Regardless, in going back through Paris Fashion Week coverage, I've realized that I forgot to mention in my posts two key collections: those of Givenchy and Comme des Garçons. called Givenchy's collection the "best received collection of the week," with its models sporting gothic-inspired femme fatale looks complete with black lipstick and Comme des Garçons collection of wide, felt looks was considered so ingenius that the audience tried to implore the fashion house's creative director to come out to take a bow— all to no avail. Cathy Horyn said in her PFW recap that, when another attendee asked her what her favorite collection, he made sure to add "after Comme des Garçons, of course." Yep. It was apparently that good.

On the other hand, Kanye West's F/W 2012 collection—yes, the Kanye West you're thinking of—was exactly what you'd expect of an ego-filled rapper whose star guest to his show was Kim Kardashian wearing nearly $6,000 fur shoes...That is, it was a collection fit for girls who want to look like Kim Kardashian and wear ridiculously expensive and hideous shoes. I had to mention it, because it is Kanye West and it was Paris Fashion Week. But really— view at your own risk. And don't say I didn't warn you.
