Mainstream or Maverick: Film Vs. Fashion in La La Land

Los Angeles may mean mainstream when it comes to movie-making, but when it comes to ‘la mode' think maverick. Liza Foreman reports.


Paris - The poster boy for far-out fashion, L.A. designer, Jeremy Scott, stuck to his trademark of outrageous, comic designs at Paris Fashion Week Tuesday, with his aptly named Happy Daze Fall/Winter 2007 ready-to-wear collection.
Scott’s eccentric line-up of retro-clothing included psychedelic dresses and outlandishly colorful coats. Models sported giant cone hair-dos and sassy poses that had even photographers amused.
The feel-good gathering in the Westin Hotel’s audacious Salle Imperiale had the audience hopping. Hilary Alexander, fashion director for Britain’s The Daily Telegraph newspaper, sang along with the music, after handing out biscuits to anyone who looked hungry. “I’m like Mother Teresa,” she joked.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’s daughter Scout attended with Arianne Philips, stylist for Madonna. Other celebrity Scott fans include Bjork, Kylie Minogue and Cameron Diaz.
Following the ‘defile,’ there was a scram to grab Scott-themed Adidas cushions and Jeremy Thomas Paris bags, which contained a bottle of oxygenated water and some L’Oreal hair creams.
At the after-party in a famous old Parisian bordello, model of the moment Agyness Deyn, and her cohorts from the hip British fashion scene, proved the 80s, and, actually, any other era you can think of, are back, with their colorful mish-mash of styles and eclectic brand of cool. Deyn is featured in the latest Armani campaign.
Earlier in the day, Japanese designer Issey Miyake’s show at the Carreau du Temple, an old Paris market, was straight out of Africa. In the first collection for Miyake’s new designer, Dai Fujiware, the emphasis was on vibrant, earthy colors and eye-catching textiles. The clothes were spacious and billowing, just the ticket for that African heat.
At the Musee de l’Orangerie, Dior unveiled an exquisite collection of couture jewelry, including a water-lily themed necklace priced at 1.5 million euro. That item has already sold, but anyone after some white-gold items plaited in paints used on 50s Cadillacs should contact Dior fast.
Paris Fashion Week fall/winter ready-to-wear runs through March 4.

Anything having to do now with the newest touch of Harper's Bazar or perhaps Haute-Couture could help you get the windfalls back from the East Coast... giving it a try wouldn't hurt after all.

Liked it... Again clean, sharp and dry eye-catching style - ultimately it defines it as I expected, all the way to its flat barebones - Just can't imagine it with your Brittish accent.
