Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balenciaga, Bouchra Jarrar and Manish Arora
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’s RTW collections always give a sense of normalcy in comparison to her couture ones. They are extremely wearable but have a similar aesthetic. Zippers and asymmetry were key in most of the pieces.
Flawless collection is flawless. Just now incredible is this?! I love the bright colours, the prints, the beadwork, the fringe and the wrap skirt. The silhouettes are sporty and the tribal like work gives it just an updated look. The mix of 3d prints with florals and graphic prints with checks, but it’s all done to wonderfully. None of it looks overdone. I think all the accessories will be coveted as well.
