Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 Getting Us Excited About These Trends

Happy End of Fashion Month!

Paris Fashion Week gave us the usually expected crazy cool mix of trends. While Saint Laurent made a mark with slip dresses, other designers tackled the following:

  1. Big Bows: Romance aside, bows and half bows get structured treatment on many runways this season. Check Out: A.F. Vandevorst , Chloe, Lanvin, Maison Margiela, Rochas
  2. Plenty of Denim: Denim made its way into the top trend-makers’ wardrobes on the runway. Alexander McQueen and Chanel did all denim looks, bringing hints of couture to the utilitarian fabric. Check Out: Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent
  3. Shoulder cutouts: Baring a shoulder with an asymmetrical cut is less of a trend than a solidified “cut of the year.” Two shoulders are New York’s game, and Paris bring a new sensual twist with a covered top and cut-outs for the playful hint of the shoulder. Check Out: Anrealage, Chalayan, Guy Laroche, Tom Ford, Roland Mouret
  4. Pleats and Micro Pleats Galore: Pleats continue being strong trend contenders at Paris Fashion Week. They’re not confined to big and small anymore; rather they get mixed up to form new architectural landscapes. Check Out: A.F. Vandevorst, Anthony Vaccarello, Balenciaga, Chalayan, Talbot Runhof, Celine, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney
  5. Lace Game: Lace can be cute, but, for the most part, it’s very sensual when it comes to fashion. In Paris, you bare lace and not much else underneath. Check Out: Alessandra Rich, Alexis Mabille, Balenciaga, Chloe, Elie Saab, Faith Connexion, Lanvin, Rochas, Celine, John Galliano
  6. Ruffles: I’m not personally into ruffles, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look good. Multiple designers prove the flouncy detailing can be sweet and sexy. Check Out: Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Dries van Noten
  7. Sharp Jackets: Everything from biker jackets to expertly embroidered tailored fare accessorized the separates and dresses underneath. Check Out: A.F. Vandevorst, Acne, Barbara Bui, Courreges, Each x Other, Faith Connexion, Haider Ackermann, John Galliano
