Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Balmain, Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci
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 chic.
It’s the collection that made denim look posh. The floral denim jacket and the long flowing coat look very modern. I also like the bright orange pieces and the colourblocking. Oddly, the denim is what I liked best.
As always, it was a very feminine and ‘soft’ collection. the clothes had a delicate intricacy to them which I love. The light ruffles at the end, the asymmetric pastel coats and the printed tops give a very old and new vibe.
