Gaucho girl

Paris Fashion week has got to be the most exquisite of fashion weeks. Pulling in the best of fashion after creative London and innovative Milan. The Spring 2009 collections were no exception to the expected luxe of Paris fashion houses, as well as some brits such as goth poster boy Gareth Pugh

Hermès Spring 2009 was nothing short of wonderful - Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, the tasseled troupe was led by celebrated models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell. Cowboy chic is not exactly a naturally classy affair, but JPG expectantly pulled this off in true Hermès style - sophisticated world traveller. Tasseled jackets, lots of tan leather and white shirts and dresses cinched at the waist representing understated luxe. Accessories such as the slouchy boots and trunks intelligently separated the collection between classy & mature and trendy & playful. Perhaps its my fringed boots getting me all or the Pocahontas style fringed outfit I've set aside for a movie themed party I'm attending in November, and of course i am a true steak loving Gaucho girl.
