It’s the final installation from Paris Fashion Week, and an end to a hectic fashion month! Congratulations, we made it!
Nicolas Ghesquiére spared no expense at awing the public. In a futuristic tone set in the Frank Gehry structure in Bois de Boulogne, Ghesquiére continued the story from last season. Retro-inspired silhouettes included the A-line skirts, slightly flared trousers and double-breasted pea-coats. A few velvet pieces touched on ’70s nostalgia while the prints called to mind the serenity and connection to nature that Dries Van Noten inspired in his show.

In stark contrast to her grown-up Prada line, Miuccia delivered copious amounts of exposed midriff. The collection felt very youthful, incorporating some grown-up pieces, like silky pencil skirts, with younger feeling items.

Moncler Gamme Rouge
It’s a seafaring life for Giambattista Valli at Moncler Gamme Rouge this season. Sailor stripes, deep navy and iridescent shimmer of scales (sequins) all had a casual yet expensive vibe around them.

It was all about Karl and Choupette at the presentation. Karl’s name stamped the pieces and accessories while his cat Choupette made an appearance on a t-shirt in cartoon form. Playful and practical, just like the two soul mates.

Christophe Lemaire sent his final collection down the runway at Hermès. The palette was warm and cozy, reflective of a desert environment he referenced. North African nomads inspired the loose shapes, well-thought out patterns and sun-faded textures.

Erik Frenken drew inspiration from Jimmy Nelson, an indigenous people photographer, and world travel as a whole. The silhouettes were loose but impactful, with fringe highlighting the contours. The colors were kept to a sober palette of red, blue, black and white.

Tina and Nikita Sutradhar had pools in mind with their spring collection. “Swim” and “Cool Pool” made a statement on several pieces. Waves emerged with color blocking on relaxed silhouettes that included scuba dresses and windbreakers similar to those worn by Olympic divers.
