Fall ’10 show venues: Paris
The show venues in Paris are bound to be particularly stunning given the freedom for the houses to pick from luxurious hotels to historical places, and work with many different creative production studios. Here is a low down on the show locations of Fall ’10 in Paris, images and notes via wallpaper.com.
The Celine venue that Phoebe Philo picked –Tennis Club de Paris– was so out of the city centre that apparently, some editors had to give it a miss. Majority of the crowd still went ahead to attend the show though.
Hermes’ spiral lighting encased runway at the Halley Freyssinet reminds me of Galliano’s Fall ’10 show, which was even more dramatic of course, with the snowflakes.
Also at the Halley Freyssinet, a mysterious stairway was stationed at the Lanvin show. Alber brought it in to give that feeling of French Chateau. During the show, models appeared from the back and walked up stairs after their runway turn.
Like the previous Fall ’09 season, Loewe’s Stuart Vevers held the presentation with a bistro-esque setting (at the Ecole de Medecine), allowing the editors to enjoy it in a slightly different manner.
Chanel, the frequent Grand Palais visitor, took a more dramatic turn with a giant ice berg rested in the middle of the stage. Well at least it got people talking, any publicity is good publicity isn’t it?
