Karl Lagerfeld Prêt-à-Porter, Paris Fashion Week 2009

KARL LAGERFELD at Espace Ephémère Tuileries, Jardin des Tuileries, 1st Arrondissement, October 4, 2009:

Back to the space where the Viktor & Rolf show was held the day before, an amazing transformation took place in less than 24 hours!Instead of all black, everything was white and light gray, and the stage was decorated with stacked Karl Lagerfeld branded stereo speakers.The vibe was youthful, loud and rock and roll.

The Jonas Brothers were seated in the front row.The young-at-heart vibe, however, contrasted with the clothes, which, although youthful with short hemlines and full shapes, had an air of sophistication about them.The silhouette for the collection was short and full – from shorts with wide cuffs to bell-shaped skirts.Black and white dominated, though there was one very hot, red leather shorts number that stood out.My favorites were the bell-shaped skirts and full-shouldered mini dresses with silver metallic detail, any one of which could be fabulous, with the right legs, for a night on the town.
