As New York Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week come to an end, we reflect on the most impressive brands.
One of the few brands with a wide range of representation in the fashion world, all women of ever color and race walked in this show. They were in multi-pastel furry baker-boy hats, coats, and skirts; brilliant clashing psychedelic-print tunics and flares; glittery jewels; and big-shouldered knit sweaters and skirts that hearkened back to the 1940s and ’70s. There were paillettes aplenty—short dresses and skimpy, slinky lingerie slips twinkling with diamanté, accessorized with huge crazy-framed sunglasses.
Nine spectacular Balenciaga couture dresses, issued in honor of the 100th anniversary. Gvasalia said he’d gone about making them by reinterpreting what he saw in the archive photos of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s incredible landmark designs of the 1950s. The collection demonstrating elegance at its finest.
Phoebe Philo put on a show that had models walking from all directions, wearing unique trouser suits, duster coats, tuxedo coats, and midi dresses that give business women a chance to get work done while looking fantastc.
Alexander McQueen put on quite the show with “witchy” styles. This season Sarah Burton travelled with her team to Cornwall, a county South West of England known for its pagan landscapes and Celtic legends. The “Cloutie” wishing trees in particular inspired the collection.
One of the biggest highlights of the week was Chanel’s space tribute. The sparkly silver boots, the spacesuit funnel necklines, the silver “insulation” suits, and a giant Chanel rocket. A phenomenal show put on by Chanel.
Ending the Paris Fashion week in the Louvre with Louis Vuitton’s modest, but sophisticated collection. The collection consisted of cropped flares, motocross jackets, and patchworked furs. The models wore natural looking makeup, and Parisian styled hair with heavy walking boots, flower-printed satins, brocades, Chantilly lace, and fused plastic. Yet another brilliant showing by Louis Vuitton.
