FASHION’S WEEK OUT BEGINS: Paris may have been gridlocked on Tuesday due to strikes, but that didn’t stop the urge to splurge at Fashion’s Night Out in the French capital’s chic “Golden Triangle.” Striking a pose with Peter Dundas, Lou Doillon, sporting a lacy jet-embroidered Pucci jumpsuit, disclosed she’ll be walking for Tom Ford in New York next week. Crowds of shoppers thronged the Chanel store in hopes of catching a glimpse of Karl Lagerfeld. “I’m a shoe-aholic, I go crazy for them,” actress Melanie Laurent said at the Christian Dior store, adding she’d just snapped up a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a Dior Homme jacket.
Visitors thronging the boutique were handed 3-D glasses to view footage of the label’s most recent couture show, while Dior Homme designer Kris Van Assche chatted with photographer Sarah Moon as a screen nearby displayed the short film she shot for his label. Van Assche admitted he didn’t even enjoy shopping in Paris. “It reminds me of working,” he laughed, though he admitted he splashed out on an Ann Demeulemeester jacket during the summer holidays. Dior president Sidney Toledano said he would like to see Fashion’s Night Out extended to the rest of the capital. “Fashion goes with events, so any event that is bringing energy would be really nice,” he said. Eyeing the accessories at Dior, Mylene Jampanoi said she’d just wrapped shooting “Hereafter,” directed by Clint Eastwood.
At Louis Vuitton, Delphine Arnault revealed she was a “weekend shopper,” adding that her most recent purchase was an iPad. While stroking the furs at Fendi, Ludivine Sagnier said she’s been working on a musical by Christophe Honoré, in which she plays Catherine Deneuve in the Sixties. “I like to go shopping when I get a big fat check, but I have no patience,” said the actress. “I just zoom in there and go flick, flick, flick.”
