Popping Up in Paris

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Last week, beyond gorgeous images from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week have hit the web – making me more and more giddy each day.

Aside from the dashing dresses, unexpected designs (um, Jean Paul Gaultier channeling the late Amy Winehouse?) something that caught my eye from three events was BALLOONS!
At the launch of the Karl Collection for Net-a-Porter, models carried black and white Karl balloons.

For the Meadham Kirchhoff show, the designers created a candy shop, complete with pastel balloon structures.

The French Magazine Grazia passed out dog balloons outside of the shows (and how cute are the street team’s outfits!?)

So if the French couture designers are making balloons chic, does that mean that they will be less of a party decor faux pas now!?
