There’s something for everyone and it’s arguably fashion’s most inclusive season ever. The message is clear; diversity is what makes fashion-and life- great.
Sexy Space Glamour
Defined by Chanel, with an actual spaceship taking off in the Grand Palais, the glitter, silver lamé and sequins on show at Dior, Miu Miu and Saint Laurent confirmed that you either go big on the evening glamour or stay at home. The key piece that nails this trend has to be the sexy diamanté covered slouchy heeled boots at Saint Laurent.
Forget the millennial pink of spring, red is the colour of this season. Wear it top to toe (like we do with black… but only in red) or in varying shades and contrasting fabrics. Powerful and arresting, stop traffic in Prada’s figure hugging, flirty hemmed red dress.
That 70’s Show
The 70’s was the retro inspo for Prada, Gucci and Miu Miu. It wasn’t hippy or disco but chic daywear in caramel, coffee and tobacco tones. Wallpaper prints, pimp-style jackets and lots of feathers and fluff finishes off the look. Prada elevated the granny knit cardigan to must-have status and corduroy (every geography teacher’s favourite) is the fabric of the season.
Working Girl Exec
Power suiting powered down the runway in all styles and incarnations. There were pronounced shoulders, pressed, loose trousers to slim fitting ones and nipped in jacket waists. The prevailing factor was: the suit is the new “cosmopolitan practicality”. Prince of Wales checks at Alexander McQueen, oversized and mannish at Céline and double breasted jackets were a mini trend within a trend, as seen at Bottega Veneta.
Best of the Rest
This season is quite literally about ready to wear. Relaxed and easy day wear at Céline or Dior, ready to go straight from the catwalk to the closet. Dior’s girl army wore denim and workwear style jackets with the emblematic bar jacket sporting a hood. The denim trend touched on another look, Americana. Cowboy boots, denim shirts and clothes made with handcrafted techniques had a traditional feel. Alexander McQueen went with an English country heritage theme while at Gucci and Balenciaga it was a cultural mash up, snakeskin and vivid colour mixed with a vintage vibe.
As said, it’s the season where anything goes.
For this new season, treat yourself to the luxury and glamour of an original shopping experience.
