Spring 2014 RTW : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino   Chanel I like seeing Chanel in pink. The sheer brightness of it was surprising but the less loud shades like purples and berry toned pinks looked really good. I love the pearl accessories in this collection. The array of colours really reminded me of the Alberta Ferretti collection but looked really vibrant. That swimsuit is killer. ...

Spring 2014 RTW : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy   Chloé The show had a very earthly vibe with the colours and the simple plain silhouettes. But it was desert chic in a way which I quite liked.     John Galliano I love the colour palette in this collection. The perforated designs and floral cut outs give a very sleek and feminine look. But the gowns are really...

Spring 2014 RTW : Kenzo, Céline and Lanvin

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Kenzo, Céline and Lanvin   Kenzo The team at Kenzo had a strong message to show. To stop endangered fish from being hunted. The references were subtle in the fish silhouette prints until the t-shirt with the words came out, making sure the message didn’t go unheard. It’s always interesting to see designers take important issues and play it out on the runway. Céline The brushstrokes made the collection perfect for the...

Spring 2014 RTW : Jean Paul Gaultier, Comme Des Garçons and Maxime Simoëns

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Jean Paul Gaultier, Comme Des Garçons and Maxime Simoëns   Jean Paul Gaultier The collection was an ode to the power combination of music and fashion. References to Grease, Madonna and even Amy Winehouse could not have been more obvious. That said, the leather separates made a big impact as did the off shoulder ruffled dresses.   Comme Des Garçons It...

Spring 2014 RTW : Yohji Yamamoto, Cacharel and Haider Ackermann

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Yohji Yamamoto, Cacharel and Haider Ackermann   Yohji Yamamoto The collection had  a lot of depth in terms of the variety. The peek-a-boo blazers felt very fresh. The fluorescent hues were like a breath of fresh in what would have otherwise been a bland runway show. The camo print and layers gave the pieces a very wearable feel. Cacharel Cacharel’s collection looks excellent! I love...

Spring 2014 RTW : Christian Dior, Isabel Marant and Maison Martin Margiela

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Christian Dior, Isabel Marant and Maison Martin Margiela     Christian Dior The Christian Dior Birds of Paradise collection really resonated when I saw the runway. The clothes and decor all have that burst of colour. But it’s the separates that really caught my eye. I love the pink and black pleated dress and the blazers with the wrap effect. Overall, it’s not the most exciting collection but there are pieces that elevate it to a youthful and fresh...

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Roland Mouret, Issey Miyake and Sonia Rykiel   Roland Mouret I love the bright pastels used in Roland Mouret’s collection. The asymmetric cuts give a really youthful feel to the collection. The dress with the hot pink top and blue print below is amazing. The satin mint dress is also very gorgeous with a fitted sexy vibe.     Issey Miyake The fanned skirts were...

Spring 2014 RTW : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci   Balmain It’s a brilliant collection. Using classics like the houndstooth, quilted fabric and giving it a modern twist is always good to see. The chunky zippers and chains felt overwhelming at times but tie in nicely with the outfits. the back leather quilted jacket looks amazing and will sellout fast! The powder blue quilted trousers look so comfy and sophisticated at the same time. I’ve mentioned this before, ruffles aren’t my thing, but the large waves at the bottom look very...

Spring 2014 RTW : Ann Demeulemeester, Carven and Paco Rabanne

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Ann Demeulemeester, Carven and Paco Rabanne   Ann Demeulemeester I find this collection very edgy. the prints and sheer panels make it softer and tame it. I like the jackets and coats best. The print velvet black jacket with zippers and the pale grey long coat look really good. Carven So camouflage is in! But it’s spring and the bright colours with the modern silhouettes look very fresh. The belt embroidery with the gingham...

Spring 2014 RTW : Balenciaga, Bouchra Jarrar and Manish Arora

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balenciaga, Bouchra Jarrar and Manish Arora   Balenciaga It’s a collection that got better with every look. Prints? Ruffles? They were restrained and a the outfits had smartness to them, but to see colour and print was unexpected and wowed people. I love the caplets on the dresses and the sheer skirts.   Bouchra Jarrar Bouchra Jarrar’s RTW collections always give a sense of normalcy in comparison to her couture ones. They are...

Spring 2014 RTW : Dries van Noten, Rochas and Gareth Pugh

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Dries van Noten, Rochas and Gareth Pugh   Dries van Noten Gold seemed to make a point in this collection. It indicated a different style from the rest, something that set it apart and visually very large and opulent. I love the tribal print top with the beads. The kimono inspired vests are gorgeous as well and I love the bright colour. I’m not too big  a fan of the side ruffles, but I do love them on the sleeves of the mustard...

Spring 2014 RTW : Cédric Charlier, Vanessa Bruno and Alexis Mabille

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Cédric Charlier, Vanessa Bruno and Alexis Mabille Starting off with Paris Fashion Week!   Cédric Charlier His collections are generally very structural and bold. This time round, there was that same manipulation of fabric to make it more dimensional. At the same time, using sheer layers gave way to a more modern look. I love the high low hems in the light material which makes it flow.   Vanessa Bruno Butterflies! I love how...
