Paris Fashion Week is one of the most highly anticipated fashion events of the year. As always it didn’t disappoint. Here’s a round-up of my favourite runway looks from the home of haute couture.
Kaia Gerber sported a strong, structured skirt, ingeniously softened by a black tulle cold-shouldered top. Perfect for a lazy afternoon strolling along the Seine.
2. Alexander McQueen
Burton showcased a forward-thinking collection by re-using lace, organza and tulle from previous collections alongside locally grown linens. She proved that sustainability, quality and couture can more than just co-exist
3. Christian Dior
Florals for spring may hardly be ground-breaking but Maria Grazia Chiuri used their eternal appeal to reinforce an overarching message about the importance of our earth and the steps we must take to protect it. Furthermore, the quaint floral prints emphasised the importance of re-establishing our individual connection to nature.
A frothy, cotton candy confection spun from air.
Oversized coats are clearly going to become a new style essential thanks to this Balenciaga look.
Is it a flowerpot? A bucket? A bin? Either way this striking hat from Nina Ricci is quite the conversation starter.
The unexpected pop of colour and sleek white stitching elevate these denim co-ords from basic to brilliant.
8. Off White
This sleek monochromatic look is timeless and elegant. It’s also refreshing to see the inclusion of older models on the runway.
8. Dries Van Noten
Pattern dominated the Van Noten show. This tailored and tiered monochromatic ensemble demonstrated a low maintenance approach to styling graphic patterns.
Let’s end with a classic. Chloe used a dash of Paris chic to create this effortless yet stunning look. It’s simultaneously elegant and cool – perfect for Paris fashion week.
