Jonathan Anderson’s trip into a blacked-out tent, decorated with a conservatory’s worth of rare orchids, produced surprises. Namely, a collection that generally fell into sinuous fit-and-flared silhouettes, or longer, shift-like dresses including this extraordinary patchworked one.
It’s a relatively small house, but it’s roaring now with young French designer Julien Dossena. The choreography of his show, in which groups of girls walked together, or overtook one another, felt new and completely at the service of highlighting the brilliantly modern asymmetric dresses.
Demna Gvasalia continued his mission to make something new out of the heritage of Cristóbal Balenciaga with his swathed coats and car-mat pencil skirts; a female version of his rethinking corporate clothing for men. But his wow-surprise was the eveningwear: nine ball gowns of immense volumes, remade in homage to Cristóbal Balenciaga’s couture, on the 100th anniversary of the founding of his house.
Nicolas Ghesquière chose the Louvre, to make his point about there being no borders between humanity. As he told Nicole Phelps: “I think fashion has always broken those frontiers.” Approachable, adaptable, it’s a wardrobe to pick and mix from: the definitive cropped flares, the neat motocross jackets, the patchworked furs. The naturalism of the models and the heavy walking boots, continued into the evening, when the patchworks of flower-printed satins, brocades, Chantilly lace, and fused plastic became brilliantly special.
This is a collection that explores the Cornish pagan tradition, ancient monuments, and the medieval myths about Queen Guinevere and the Lady of Shalott produced some of the most beautiful clothes in Paris. However, the real magic was the way it became tangibly of today, worn by natural-looking girls with flat boots.
The haunting story of the classic ballet Giselle inspired a romantic Elie Saab collection. The purple was in all its lush richness, spread over the collection, challenging the dominance of black.
Comme des Garçons
Rei Kawakubo called her collection The Future of the Silhouette, which might suggest that she was reflecting on the process of molding something new from traditional methods. The opening figures could have denoted asymmetric tailors’ dummies; her experiments with wadding, insulation material, paper, and flocking were all aimed at producing seam-free results.
Women attitude with feisty female clothes on the runway. And Navy blue color in everywhere on the smart tailored clothes.
This year the major show at Fashion Week was definitely Chanel, where models walked out of a space station looking like straight out of the space. The clothes, these are undeniably Chanel style and Karl Lagerfeld took the audience on a space oddity.
Karl Lagerfeld decided to have a 35-metre-tall rocket, which launched 10 meters into the air, all the way up to the 120-year-old glass ceiling of the Grand Palais, at the end of the Fall 2017 Chanel show.
