Guest Fashion Post for Innamorato and Merci Merci
Introducing three new bloggers to the Paris fashion scene: Amy Newman, Lauren Trani, and Dina Chipiga. After sharing our obsession with Paris Fashion Week with Melissa, we were lucky enough to be invited to two presentations that she was unable to attend herself! We’ve decided to share our interpretations of the designs with you all, from the perspectives of three wide-eyed fashionistas in Paris.
The first presentation that we got ot go to was a display of Innamorato’s Fall/Winter 2011 line. We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but it almost felt like walking into a scene from the Devil Wears Prada! We loved all of the neutral colors accented with royal blues and some gold shimmer.
There also seemed to be a chic 50’s vibe throughout the collection. The use of belts and draping in different pieces really added to the feminine silhouettes emphasized in the collection.
After talking to the PR rep, we learned that Innamorato’s pieces were sold at our next stop – Merci Merci Bijoux!
Merci Merci Bijoux is a hidden treasure for department store lovers. In a private room tucked away in the back of the store, a vast assortment of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and so much more was on display. Small-scale French designers, taking inspiration from all over the world, each showed a few pieces representative of their summer 2011 collections. Merci Bijoux also displayed their own collection where simplicity was an obvious theme. Delicate charms were everywhere!
Lauren was drawn to the floral fabrics in Merci’s bracelets, while Amy was attracted to Aurélie Bidermann’s statement pieces. The Bidermann line had a lot of bright colors and rope.
The piece that struck us the most was this gorgeous mask necklace:
We could definitely imagine a Parisian girl rocking this look!
We are so grateful for this amazing opportunity, and these experiences are only the beginning of our Paris fashion love affair.
