5 DESIGNERS THAT KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF AT PARIS FASHION WEEK

Yes, it was almost impossible to narrow it down!

Fashion Week in Paris… it doesn’t get much more magical than that (you’ll know what we mean if you saw Chanel’s ‘Chanel By The Sea’ extravaganza!).

With an endless list of killer brands, it was a tough gig narrowing down the best of the best, however we somehow managed to bring you our top 5 faves.

We saw bags to die for from Loewe, amazing details by Alexander McQueen, laid-back pantsuits by Stella McCartney, Indian inspired creations from Giambattista Valli and vacay perfection by the one and only, Chanel. 

And just like that, another Paris Fashion Week has come and gone. And while it may be over, we have our favourite looks to look forward to dropping in stores and online over the coming months. Read on below to check out our top 5 designers and looks from the week..

STELLA MCCARTNEY

This year Stella McCartney wowed her audience at Paris Fashion Week. Showcasing her Spring/ Summer ready to wear collection featuring some very boxy silhouette, oversized bags, blazers and glasses (we are sensing some sort of theme here..) her new collection was original and refreshing. With her carefree spirit and love of formalwear, McCartney has created the perfect relaxed fitting suit. We didn’t think it was possible to make a pantsuit laid-back, but McCartney has proved otherwise. 

 


2.

LOEWE

With a very mixed bag of trends throughout Loewe’s Spring/ Summer collection, there was no complaints from us. We saw oversized sunglasses, lots of woven and knitted textures, pantsuits and of course… bags. The bags this season were of amazing variety. Expressing his pieces as ‘objects of art’ Jonathan Anderson created just that. With some pieces canvas, some leather fringed and some basket bags, this collection is one for the ages. 


3.

CHANEL

Everyone knows Paris Fashion Week is busy and its exhausting. So this year Karl Lagerfeld created a ‘mini break’ for the international audience that came to view his Spring collection. With their shoes kicked off, the models strutted their stuff in Chanel’s very wearable pieces. Featuring his signature tweed and quilted bags, Lagerfeld incorporated athleisure in  his collection also. With summery prints and straw hats, all set on a ‘beach’, this year’s Chanel show looked like a dream.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI

With his Spring ready to wear collection coming to life on the runway in Paris, Valli took us all to India with his Indian inspired collection. Showcasing, beautiful dresses inspired by caftans, stunning lace detailing and lots of animal print, Valli’s collection spoke to us on another level. 


5.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

With her strong belief in the sisterhood and a female-led world Sarah Burton created a collection that represented just that. With bold and daring pieces, mixed with soft lace and ruffled trimmings McQueen’s Spring line oozed power and strength. With amazing attention to detail using eyelet upon eyelet on dresses and jackets, big leather belts worn at the waist and of course their own interpretation of the female pant suit, Alexander McQueen’s collection was a superb masterpiece.
