PFW Day one: Sharon Wauchob
Location: Musee de l’homme
Joanne Black Style: Acne skinny jeans, Marc Jacobs t-shirt, Martin Margiela jacket, Georgina Goodman Chelsea boots and a YSL bag
The collection: Everything about Sharon Wauchob’s collection was sharp, cool and edgy. Combining her signature layering technique with more handcrafted traditions such as lace making and crochet, Wauchob’s white, grey and black designs were as absorbing as ever. Metallic beaded shoulder pads, deconstructed jackets, statement dresses, drop-crotch pants and cool white jodhpur trousers – with a twist at the bottom – made this a show that was both bold and beautiful.
The wish list: My wish list always doubles in size after a Wauchob show. I don’t think Spring/Summer 2010 would be the same without her short black dress with a see-through middle, white ruffles silk dress, silk white top with padded shoulders, black dress with layered shoulder detail (fitted at the waist), and short bolero-style black silk jacket.
The style: Both French and Asian fashions were trying to capture the audience’s attention.
