Paris Fashion Week Review
This is it everyone, the last week of a very busy month in the fashion community. Paris Fashion Week just ended on October 3rd, marking the last of the major city fashion shows till spring to launch their fall and winter collections. If you missed last week's post about our takes on Milan Fashion Week you can read it here.
This week has three categories featuring Menswear, Ready-To-Wear, and Haute-Coture. They are most known for their extravagant couture collections. Today let's run through some of the looks that absolutely made our jaw drop as well as some interesting looks that couldn’t be ignored.
Although L’oreal doesn’t even sell or produce clothing they do host an annual fashion show. This year it was held directly underneath the Eiffel Tour creating a magical atmosphere to watch even through a screen. This show was so fun to watch. It really modeled how to bring inclusivity into the brand. The models were having fun and were able to show their personalities through their walk. It made it so refreshing and appealing to view. We hope that brands are inspired by the structure and success of this show and allow more model individuality.
We have tried to think of another adjective to describe this show but it just slayed. The whole show was a production and flowed so perfectly. The looks were very put together and fit the models well making everything seem well – seamless. There was a good variety but the whole collection followed the same timeless chic theme.
The Creative Director, Sarah Burton, bids her farewell at Alexander McQueen with this show's finale. She stated that the show was dedicated to Lee Alexander McQueen “whose wish was always to empower women, and to the passion, talent, and loyalty of my team.” The show featured many metallics, exaggerated feminine silhouettes, and plays on traditional pantsuits. A beautiful show for Burton’s send-off!
Everything is so boring and monochrome these days but this season Marni was interesting, creative, and everything that a Paris fashion show is supposed to be! It started off looking generic with a long skirt and a cropped tank top but slowly began to have stripes and powerful color coordinations overtaking till we got to flower stickers and jeweled dresses. It's crazy and doesn’t make sense but at the same time, it's perfect.
At the end of the day, everyone’s style is different. Marni is a great example, it is interesting and not for everyone but it is creative and inspirational. We at RYN encourage you to take inspiration from looks that you liked or disliked over the past month and be creative. We are here to help!
