Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runways at Loewe, Christian Dior and Issey Miyake

After Raf Simons’s three-year stylistic overhaul at Christian Dior, the lovable designer split ties last October, leaving the latest collection in the hands of the brand’s studio team.

The proxy creative design position was led by studio heads Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, who did a solid job envisioning a transitional collection that blended Dior’s historic silhouettes with Simons’s controlled sense of experimentation. There was a focus on tailored outerwear and clean lines, specifically the brand’s historical “New Look” silhouette, with cinched waists and flared skirts. Color and flourish were styled after Simons’s design mantra with flouncy, ruffled tops and embellished A-line skirts or ballooning sleeves; contrast cuffs teamed up with slim pencil skirts for a play on proportion. Execution aside, the same styles reappeared, reminding us of the collection’s placeholder status.

Get the Look: Street Style at Dior, Issey Miyake and Loewe

QuadParis3Gimlet-eyed Crystal Nicodemus is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one), and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016, Street StylePink is on my radar, especially when I see how stunning Shiona Turini looks in her monochromatic blush tones. This is a masterfully blended tonal look with great subtle texture as well. A suede wrap skirt is one of my top must-have items for fall, but I hadn’t considered going for a color until now. Who knew pink could be such a great neutral? Lace-up stilettos add some sexy sleekness to this modern femme ensemble. J’adore!

Street Style: Stacie at Issey Miyake

Stacie is no shrinking violet in this bold number. She’s all about vibrant color and bold pattern. It was refreshing to see some brightness at the Tuileries this morning. The silhouette of Stacie’s dress is sleek, yet voluminous. Tall boots are well suited to her short hemline and a thick belt adds some feminine definition.

Street Style: Yoyo at Dior

I love the genre mashup of delicate femininity and tough-girl chic in Yoyo’s outfit. Of course, genre mixing has always been one of my favorite style tricks in the book! Yoyo’s layered, pleated full skirt is a work of art and a beautiful statement piece. A slim moto jacket and tall boots toughen up the look.

Street Style: Charlotte at Issey Miyake

Suede is definitely the superstar texture of the month, and Charlotte’s slim-leg pants are killer. I love the simple neutral palette, with its rustic western flair. A draped denim jacket is a great way to infuse some utilitarian, casual charm to a look. A snakeskin skinny belt and mini bag add some pops of print.

Street Style: Chloe at Issey Miyake

I’m glad denim is still so present at Fashion Week. It’s nice to see some looks that are actually wearable on a day-to-day basis. Chloe’s textural coat is amazing and is a fantastic color for spring. Her hits of poppy red brighten up the look, while an oversize jumper and cuffed jeans keep it casual.

Street Style: Helena at Issey Miyake

Helena Bordon is a member of the all-star style team here on The Thread and with good reason. Her look is chic, but streamlined. I am obsessed with this sharp military jacket. The color palette blends beautifully and I love the dressy denim. Mirrored sunnies and a box clutch add some trendy touches.

Street Style: Alise at Issey Miyake

White continues to be one of the most popular colors in fashion. Alise’s whites are clean, crisp and sporty. Her grey neoprene coat furthers the modern sportswear theme. A bright yellow bag and red lip infuse the look with a pop of color.

Street Report: Irene Outside Issey Miyake

Pink is the color of the season. Luckily, the Parisian sun is the perfect complement to any shade of rose! Irene’s outfit is inspired by ’50s silhouettes and feminine lines. I am a huge fan of the short-sleeve sweater, and this ribbed style adds some modern balance to her retro full skirt. Simple black accessories keep Irene’s look clean and chic.

The Art of Illumination at Issey Miyake Spring ’14

Issey Miyake, the Japanese fashion house, lights up the runway for spring/summer 2014 with the illuminated silhouettes of its new collection.

Where’s the Issey Miyake woman going this season? According to show notes, she’s walking “toward the stars and shine in the inky black sky, toward the moon.”

Gros bisous!

Getting cheeky backstage with Issey Miyake’s womenswear designer, Yoshiyuki Miyamae.

Rays of light in rainbow patterns splash across dresses and separates, creating a freshly innovative outlook on high-tech wearability. And of course, no outfit is complete without a spritz of Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please, a Nordstrom exclusive fragrance that embodies one of the most fundamental concepts of Issey Miyake.

Jump over to our Beauty Blog and discover the look that Alex Box and the M·A·C PRO team has created for spring/summer 2014.
