There are some very thoughtful collections like Gareth Pugh and Vionnet. The more relatable but still fashionable Dries Van Noten; all fall collections from Paris Fashion Week.
Dries Van Noten
It’s urban chic with the retro silhouettes in geometric lines and bold colours. The outerwear and coats are to die for. The floral separates are my favourites here.
The shock and awe factor aside, you can always rely on Gareth Pugh to take you to another world. Imagine Frozen set in a future, the dystopian attire and the like. I love how the silhouette is a look rather than how it looks on a model. It’s spectacular.
There’s a lot of symbology here, from the more apparent tulips to flora in general. I love the pleating and draping techniques used and how the fabric has been manipulated, its refreshing. It may not be one for the masses but it’s memorable.
