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.


The Christian Dior show was held in a temporary structure, erected within Paris’ Jardin des Tuileries. John Galliano worked with Michael Howells on the set and production was by Bureau Betak.


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.


Also taking a cue from the previous fall season, Louis Vuitton built a transparent tent within the courtyard of Cour Carree du Lourve, with models walking by the fountain as the runway.


Dries van Noten’s venue at Hotel de Ville de Paris. Main attraction — the multiple chandeliers floating on top.


Miu Miu’s production at Hôtel Particulier featured a high-shine mirrored floor and purple block stools.


Moving on to the Grand Palais— Yves Saint Laurent’s solemn show— dim lighting and simple seating arrangement.


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?
