Best looks and trends from Paris fashion week

28.01.2019

More than a fashion week, what goes down in Paris by mid-January is an actual relay of catwalks: it kicked off with the men stepping on the runway for the fall/winter collections 2019 between the Tuesday 15th to Sunday 20th of January. The baton was then passed to the Haute Couture and the shows for this spring/summer 2019: Paris was lit by glimmering catwalks from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th.

We have gathered the best looks on and off the catwalk from Paris 10 days of fashion!

Paris Men Fall/Winter 2019

Sankuanz’s hoods at Sotheby’s

That is not a place where you would often see boys in hoods, is it? Shangguan Zhe designed a collection that blended fashion with street as well as his exploration into rave wear. First time he has put women on his catwalk too, dressed in fitting pants and holster vests.

Digital show for Off-White

Being a trendsetter means breaking some rules and Virgil Abloh’s has just done it with his show titled ‘ Public Television” streaming on www.off- – -white.com. The experience online reminds us a tiny bit of a Black Mirror Episode, but it’s kind of the beauty of it?

Jaquemus’s bucolic men

Titled LE MEUNIER, the men Jacquemus envisioned for his fall/winter collection 2019 come from a very specific experience:

I wanted to recreate the atmosphere of my childhood and tell the collection in an intimate way’.

The collection featured workwear inspired pants and jackets, stealing lines and materials from the land and labour, or better ‘millers’.

Celine’s black box

It has happened again, Celine show was hosted in a black box, the second time around after the show in October: the effect was dramatic, to say the least, where guests were stunned by the line of sight to the Arc de Triomphe and by Hedi Slimane’s likewise dramatic looks. These included skinny suits but also outerwear that steered towards oversized.

Paris Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2019

Iris van Herpen’s ethereal constructions

You can read more about Iris van Herpen collections here, and the seamless  process that led to her latest intricate work: a mix of visionary creativity, craftsmanship and the study of new techniques. Her Shift Souls collection introduced in Paris is an inspiring work of art, celebrating her passion for transforming intuitons, legends, and theories into sensational garments. Here she was inspired by the “Harmonica Macrocosmica,” a star atlas by the German-Dutch cartographer Andreas Cellarius, published in 1600.

Dior’s circus

If it isn’t dramatic, iconic and somewhat folkloristic, it may not have Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri’s signature. For the show in Paris Dior she has put up an actual circus setting, which saw an actual circus tent in the grounds of the Musée Rodin: the show included performances by acrobats, who introduced the models before they stepped on the catwalk in likewise circus inspired garments. Tulle, bonnets, colourful sequins where the elements bringing to life the whimsical art of circus.

Villa Chanel

That’s how it has been named by the French fashion institution: the haute couture show is set in a vast Mediterranean garden with the Grand Palais reflecting in a pool of water, models strolled in the indoor yard whilst notes from Italian singer Mina filled the atmosphere with nostalgic melancholia-  and it started snowing outside . All spot on to fit sequins, feathers and lace dresses, featuring a hype of volumes as in the sleeves, the balloon skirts and layers of ruffle

Viktor&Rolf’s fashion statement

In the most possible literal way, that’s how Dutch conceived conceptual label intended us to interpret their meme culture inspired collection. “I’m not shy I just don’t like you” was probably the show stopper out of the 17 tulle and colorful creation

Streetstyle

Snow is in the air as well as plenty of gold, matched with a good dose of pastel pink and white: oversized earrings and white sneakers always stopping the show in the streetstyle game. Well, yes, the caption for this snap is spot on, from the bi-colour neon sneakers to the military/aviation inspired cargo pants and of course the ubiquitous mask, Asians do seem to live on another planet when it comes to street style.
