What trends stood out on the catwalks of our favourite designers? From Chloé to Givenchy, here’s a look at the trends!
For this Spring-Summer 2024 season, designers have once again pushed back the boundaries of creativity, offering a glimpse of the next trends. From floral inspirations to assertive silhouettes, here’s a look back at the catwalk shows on Day 3, 28 September 2023. On the programme: Rabanne, Chloé, Givenchy, Rick Owens and Schiaparelli.
Trends from Rabanne
Directed by Julien Dossena, the Rabanne Spring-Summer 2024 show was transformed into an arena of female warriors in imposing silhouettes. The collection was inspired by ancient soldiers’ armour. The artistic director revisited the sarouel while incorporating glittering outfits in gold sequins. Accessories included belts adorned with round silver balls and bonnets in metallic mesh. Finally, if there’s one trend that stands out in this collection, it’s the return of ultra-high spartan shoes.
Trends from Chloé
Gabriela Hearst’s latest show for Chloé was acclaimed for its commitment to eco-responsibility and sensual elegance. The designer chose a picturesque setting near the Eiffel Tower for her farewell to Paris, inviting dancers from the Brazilian Mangueira school for a more than festive finale. This Spring-Summer 2024 collection highlights the trend for flowers and shoulder pads, a reference to the relationship between man and nature. Crochet dresses, flowing pieces and dresses with ruffles were on the programme.
Trends from Givenchy
At the Givenchy Spring-Summer 2024 show, artistic director Matthew M. Williams celebrated the house’s signature elegance. The silhouettes were elevated by blazers with accentuated shoulders, majestic pastel coats and pieces as transparent as they were fluid. The brand’s signature little black dress was reinvented with ruffles and graphic necklines. Special mention must go to the suit, which has never looked so elegant.
Trends from Rick Owens
The Rick Owens Spring-Summer 2024 collection had an apocalyptic vibe, despite its celebration of the colour black. The silhouettes oscillated between fluidity and tailoring, offering a play on transparency. Exaggerated pagoda shoulders, capes in motion and short shorts also marked the designer’s catwalk show.
Trends from Schiaparelli
Called “Un quotidien sensationnel”, the Schiaparelli Spring-Summer 2024 show revisited ready-to-wear, drawing inspiration from Elsa Schiaparelli’s philosophy of making the ordinary extraordinary. Artistic director Daniel Roseberry blends American style with French rigour, adding a touch of the surreal to basic pieces. Hello crab and lobster skeletons. While the pieces in the collection remain predominantly black and white, the red dress adorned with scales worn by Kendall Jenner is a real eye-catcher.
