The Paris Fashion Week Digest – Episode 4
Because ain't nobody got time to go through all eight days of Paris Fashion Week, we rounded things down to the FIVE collections that you need to know about.| October 11, 2017
When the going gets tough, the tough look to Paris for its boundless beauty. After being on the road for a full month and hopping from New York to London to Milan, we finally arrived at the grand finale: Paris. And golly, boy oh boy was there plenty of beauty to be enjoyed indeed. All eight, jam-packed days of shows of it. There was a series of very lifelike waterfalls at Chanel, corsets and leather at Alexander McQueen, seventies redux at the new Chloe under Natacha Ramsay-Levi, a whole selection of shoes that we’d sacrifice all those green smoothies and acai bowls for – and these are just the tip of the colossal iceberg that is Paris Fashion Week.
Because ain’t nobody got time to browse through every single collection that showed over the course of Paris Fashion Week, we’ve filtered everything down to the five collections that you absolutely need to know about below. These were the collections that made our week. What were yours?
Celine, Celine, Celine. Always giving us a hundred and one reasons to break a hole in our piggy banks and not look back. Boxy blazers ticked into skirts, cropped jackets with straps that mean endless styling opportunities, floating hips and ponchos that curved at the hem. Phoebe Philo dared and we loved it.
A blast from the past cleverly mixed in with Nicolas Ghesquiere’s signature futurism and sportswear elements. Plus, a little nod and wink to Netflix’s Stranger Things. See our full review and our favourite moments from the runway here.
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic. With a massive faux waterfall as the backdrop, Chanel presented a collection of looks inspired by rivers and waterfalls, complete with thigh-high boots made out of completely transparent plastic. Plastic has never looked this chic. See our runway coverage and the details up-close here.
With the English garden as her starting point, Sarah Burton wove a collection out of deconstructed corsets and trench coats, denim, ruffles, lace and intricate floral embellishments. It’s the kind of runway show that you wish would go on just a bit longer. See 25 of the most jaw-dropping moments from the show here.
Just how much does Jonathan Anderson have stuffed up his sleeves? A lot, apparently. Anderson presented a whole bevy of ideas that ran the gamut from tasseled tapestry dresses fused with bravest, ginghams paired with Loewe-branded safari hats to convertible safari jackets and sinewy patchwork dresses that elongate the body. Also, have you seen the sneakers? If you haven’t, see some of the best details from the show here.
