What we learned from Paris Fashion Week 2016.
It’s true that they always save the best ‘til last, because the Fall 2016 collections that debuted on the Paris Fashion Week catwalk earlier this year made the entire Fashion Month go off with a very stylish bang.
Anyone who is anyone (especially if you’re Rihanna or Kylie Jenner) is obsessed with all things Vetements, which is why it was one of the most highly anticipated collections of the entire season. Thigh high boots with socks were the order of service on the runway, which we think is a rather fitting theme for the colder season. We wonder if we will be able to get our hands (and feet) on any of these pieces before they sell out and migrate to the auction sites for double or even triple their original price.
Elsewhere in Paris, Riccardo Tisci debuted a military inspired collection for Givenchy, which was more than evident with the colours and prints found in the new-season pieces.
And if you found yourself heartbroken when the nineties puffer jacket was no longer fashionable, then you’re in luck, as it looks like it’s making a comeback thanks to the latest Vivienne Westwood and Balenciaga (both pictured below) collections.
That’s not all Paris Fashion Week excited us with, oh no. Valentino (pictured below) didn’t disappoint us, as he stunned the crowd by transporting the entire audience to the world of ballet, with one stunning piece floating out effortlessly and elegantly after the other.
Nicolas Ghesquière, on the other hand, ensured the Louis Vuitton (pictured below) catwalk had a tougher, edgier vibe to it. We can’t wait to see how this translates onto the red carpet when the A-listers (or more likely, their stylists and publicists) are no doubt fighting amongst themselves to get their hands on the collection.
Dries Van Noten (pictured below) once again blew us away, with a bold, vivid collection comprised of heavy prints – not to mention heavy eyeliner, which we certainly don’t have a problem with.
