Patou opens Haute Couture Fashion Week with a ready-to-wear collection that felt influenced by the upcoming film Barbie

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Although the show notes said that the collection was Dancing Diaries inspired by nostalgia and long summer nights of dancing, I could not help but feel there was a definite influence of the fantasy comedy directed by Greta Gerwig, Barbie. The film Barbie is based on fashion dolls by Mattel. The ready-to-wear collection opened Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.
