As Paris Fashion Week wraps up, we’re looking back on a packed show schedule and busily assessing the looks we’ve fallen head over heels in love with. Here is our definitive guide to the key trends and major ideas we think will be influencing the way you’ll want to dress next spring.
A new proposition is emerging for everyone’s favorite fabric. Patched, washed and offered in fresh silhouettes and proportions: denim sportswear is shaping up to be one of next spring’s key trends. Think beyond your fail-safe jeans and consider jackets, skirts, jumpsuits and tunics as an alternative for your newest cool-girl look.
Fashion’s love affair with feminine, floral prints continues as designers in Paris offer a new take for next spring. Choose a dark or light romance, with vintage-inspired color-pop blooms or petals spliced, diced and patched for a new spin on spring’s freshest print.
Yesterday’s runways took us from Italian holiday to historical Japanese fiction with classic prints from Valentino and startlingly bold lines by Alexander McQueen.
Valentino’s Grand Tour-inspired collection was as beautifully varied as Italy itself. Creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, aimed to transport us to an era of Italian esteem, when Europeans flocked to Italy for a lesson in culture and aesthetics.
Designers are so good at making cold, unsexy winter (hello, long underwear!) seem hot. Case in point: the exclusive clip below that our friends at Akris punto were kind enough to share with us, which chronicles their campaign shoot for Albert Kriemler’s snowboarding-inspired collection for Fall/Winter 14/15. Starring Russian-born Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov—he of the cute nickname (“iPod”) and Olympic Gold Medal (at Sochi 2014) fame—the video plays like an ad for Switzerland’s soaring Alps and sleek winter style. Prepare for cheekbone envy.
Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including sleek elegance at Akris, sporty futurism at KENZO and bobo-inflected accessories at Chloé.
At Akris, creative director Albert Kriemler showed a collection of precisely cut, monochromatic looks, many with textural, graphic motifs inspired by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist works.
Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including art-meets-fashion at Junya Watanabe, the new It shoes from Acne and Jean Paul Gaultier’s ready-to-wear dénouement.
There’s never a dull moment at a Junya Watanabe show. His cubist-inspired runway collection for spring may seem a little wacky at first glance, but if you look beyond the fantastical styling pieces, you’ll find cute striped tops, pleated skirts and other closet pleasers.
