Paris Fashion Week- Recap
Chloé – simple, clean and wearable
We love how truly wearable Claire Waight-Keller made the Chloé collection. We saw the traditional nod to the cool 60s and 70s in the billowing shapes and silhouettes. We saw oversized blouses, denim jumpsuits, dark denim shirts, lace up gladiator sandals and cute embroidery dresses – and we loved it all. Simplicity ruled the catwalk and by the looks of the Chloé collection, we will all be wearing Chloé this season.
Givenchy – The house of Givenchy is bringing sexy back
Riccardo Tisci sexed up the catwalk: we saw an abundance of plunging necklines, corsets, leather over the knee boots – all in the warm spring shades, burgundy and brown, as well moody blacks and light whites. Colours wasn’t on the agenda, instead Givenchy focused on exquisite detailing in the dresses, necklines and leather pieces.
Dries Van Noten – Silk bomber jackets and wide fit trousers…Dries Van Noten oozed cool
Dries Van Noten started Paris Fashion Week with bang; the catwalk was a dreamy mix silk, stripes and loose shapes. Staying faithful to her past collections, we saw the expected masculine pinstripes and silk blouses. However we adored the new pieces: the layered silk and stripe dresses were a hit, as well as the A Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired slip dresses.
