Anyone else have the post fashion week blues? We know we do. To reminisce on the amazing fashion we saw, here is a recap of Paris Fashion Week.
Comme des Garçons, Mui Mui, Anthony Vaccarello, Rochas
Florals from Spring 2016 transitioned into Fall 2016. However, the florals in the fall were not all light and airy. There were a lot of darker moods, which is expected for the fall. The floral motif was illustrated from folkloric to romantic and sexy, and even edgy. From embellishments to embroidering, to just printing it on, florals were everywhere.
Nina Ricci, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Véronique Branquinho
Velvet is a staple on the fall runways of Paris Fashion Week, but designers had new takes on the staple textile. Baroque and sporty styles were prevalent, but there also was the a street edge take on velvet as well.
Givenchy, Vanessa Seward, Hermès, Valentino
Flesh tones, taupes, and creams flowed out on the runways. They ranged from knits to wool, and even leather and lace. The neutral tones were easy on the skin and eyes, but they were definitely not easy to miss.
Burberry, Y/Project, John Galliano, Undercover
Welcome back to the power suit. There were lots of incorporations of the power suit from the 80’s. The traditional men’s structure was all over the runways as well as the usual military inspiration, whether it was from the cut, color, or fabric of the garment.
Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Acne Studios, Christian Dior
The off the shoulder look was very popular on the runways of Paris Fashion Week. Not all of the designers exposed skin though. There was lots of layering being paired with the off the shoulder look and styled to look relaxed. Besides, bare shoulders would be a bit cold for the fall.
Until the next one, fashion week, Au Revoir!
