The shows of Paris fashion week were aesthetically all over the place. From tribal influence to ’90s inspiration, black to white, there were looks for every individual. Here are some of my favorite shows from Paris, all covered by The Thread:
Junya Watanabe‘s models emerged in braids, feathers and dredlocks at the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution. Watanabe’s collection took fringe to a new level, building a bridge between modern style and traditional Native American aesthetics. I love the combination of fringe and studs—it’s not too harsh, but not at all timid!
I’m obsessed with this Nina Ricci clutch, my favorite piece from the collection. It’s so detailed and fragile, and it can work with so many different looks. Ricci’s collection was on the softer side of the spectrum, with delicate lace dresses in white and lavender.
Carven was my favorite show in Paris. The collection was a tribute to the ’90s, an eclectic mix of patterns and textures, crop tops and high-waisted skirts. And how awesome are those shoes? I want them so that I can look 5’4″…
The Rick Owens show was too cool. His outerwear collection featured models of all different sizes, stomping and dancing to pounding music. (You can read a great interview with one of the dancers here.) It’s so refreshing to see runway looks on real women doing real things! I like how minimal these clothes are—simplicity is definitely a trend this spring.
The entire show is 11:25 long and worth every riveting minute:
