If anyone knows how to put on a show, it’s Balenciaga. They had a show: A Simpson’s short film in which Marge and Bart go to Paris Fashion Week in Balenciaga.

At Louis Vuitton, Ghesquière has been fascinated by the concept of time and the way fashion intercrosses with it and doubles back. Louis Vuitton celebrates its 200th birthday, and being a brand that’s home is Paris, France, is pretty unique! 200 years and LV stands strong!

Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood brings edgy, a little bit punk, and definitely intrinsically British.

The husband of Westwood settled his collection primarily in a palette of white, black, and shades of pink, accessorizing with intricate headscarves and large pearl drop earrings, which is a must.
