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 dress.
There was a lot of familiarity in this collection. The large floral prints which have been in for quite some time, the pastels and embellishments added to make them more glamorous. However, I think the length of the dresses is just not flattering. It somehow manages to make all the models look shorter. On “average” 5’3″ frames like me, it would look just awful.
It’s a collection that would fit right into Tron. I love the cyan pop of colour, it kept the collection from being too monotonous. I love the light grey colour as well, it looks so much better than a stark white. Gareth Pugh really knows his way around a fabric and how to hold it up defying gravity and keep it that way. This collection in all its variety of separates looks very bold and forward. Love it!
