Tonight to kick off Fashion Week Paris for the Spring 2012 collections, I headed over to the Didier Ludot “Petite Robe Noire” boutique for the launch of the collaboration between Didier Ludot and Petit Bateau. Ludot created a small collection of mom and daughter dresses for those who want to be chic but like things simple and classic.
They look great paired with a boléro created for the collection in a very “Petit Bateau” style; or just on their own.
A little white dress found it’s way into the collection as well as a few good girl undergarments.
A “sage” collection, these are not the little black dresses to seduce your colleague at the office party or to knock the socks off your chéri when you meet him for dinner after work, but they are figure flattering and full of subdued French charm!
The presentation took place at his boutique in the Palais Royal gallery shops. Parisians who mix and mingle with the fashion crowd sipped champagne and nibbled on macarons on the covered sidewalk outside of the boutique. I was rathered impressed by the size of the crowd, which has something to say for the PR efforts of their agency. Bravo for the turnout and thank you for the lovely evening after work! What a nice way to start fashion week, and end a Monday!
