Panama based Spanish blogger Gisele Del Río traveled to the French capital at the end of February, covering Fashion Week for Coup d’État.
Initially scheduled to be printed in our April issue, we share with you her coverage; an intimate account of her stay in ‘La Ville Lumière ’.
Saturday February 29; Today is going to be very special. Early in the afternoon we have the Elie Saab runway at Palais de Tokyo. A collection of Andalusian inspiration, from the south of Spain, made evident thanks to the songs by Rosalía chosen by the designer to ambiance the show.
After the show, before getting to the hotel, we stop on the same street to eat at Trattoria Popolare, Big Mamma group famous Italian restaurant. If you are in Paris, you cannot miss it; My favorite is Pink Mamma (for which it is essential to make a reservation or to be there a few minutes before it opens).
The second surprise of the day comes from Hermès. At eight o'clock in the afternoon I will be lucky enough to attend the runway of one of the luxury fashion houses with the greatest tradition, héritage, and savoir-faire in the world.
We saw a collection in which the craftsmanship and technique that characterize Hermès were more than present. A collection of essential garments in primary colors, steeped in classicism. According to Vanhee-Cybulski, "What is beautiful must be useful." Why? “It’s a bit of the school of the Bauhaus — that process of stripping away the superficial to get to the functional.”
