What trends did we spot on the Fashion Week catwalks? Zoom in!
Meet Stella McCartney at the Saxe-Breteuil market
The Stella McCartney collection is a mix of the formal and the informal. The brand offers trouserless suit jackets, ruffled shirts unbuttoned to the navel and parachute shirts with batwing sleeves. The highlight of this collection is the collaboration with artist Andrew Logan. Their collaboration can be seen on the pieces in the collection, adding flashes of light and phrases such as ‘love or freedom’.
Zimmerman opts for light, long dresses in bold prints
For this season, the Zimmerman brand is opting for lightness. The collection features some remarkable silhouettes. In particular, there’s a coin with two sides: the marriage of denim and lace dresses. The pieces are ample, sometimes straight or oversized. It’s all about volume and voluptuousness.
We now know who stole the merchant’s orange from Louis Vuitton…
The thief is on the most beautiful avenue in the world… It’s on the Champs-Elysées, with hand-picked guests, where we take to the skies in a setting resembling orange wedges pleated like a hot-air balloon. Vuitton’s collection was all about grandeur, with large jackets, shortened skirts and very fitted waists.
The Vuitton woman is graphic, with a mind-boggling variation of geometries on the shoulders and bottom of the skirts. The hats are elegant, playful and daring. Nicolas Ghesquière is consistent: each season he unveils remarkable collections and never ceases to renew himself. Louis Vuitton remains avant-garde, creative and, above all, unique! That’s why the brand remains one of the world’s leading fashion houses.
A high-flying fashion show for Mugler:
At Mugler, a pack of American stars took to the catwalk this season. On the catwalk were Oscar-winning actress Angela Bassett, Connie Fleming, the house’s legendary model, and Paris Hilton. The garments are highly constructed, close to the body and revealing bits of skin.
The expertise of the legendary fashion house was showcased: dresses with restructured transparent hips, corsets that elongated the torso and materials that created weightlessness. Rigid meets fluid. The result is a sexy, powerful and epic effect!
Make way for androgyny at Margiela:
John Galliano showed us his approach to gender-neutral looks on the catwalk. The cut of the dresses and jackets was another example of the fashion genius’s savoir-faire. Black and white, recycling, misappropriation and mystery are the watchwords at Margiela.
