PFW Autumn + Winter 2018

Monday, March 5, 2018


Paris Fashion Week is always my favorite for the legendary houses like Saint Laurent and for the exciting newcomers such as Jacquemus. The French have and always will know how to dress with elegance and a hint of edge and sexiness. Although there are still a few iconic shows left, these were the collections that have stolen my heart so far:

LOEWE


‘Serenity and serious fashion go hand-in-hand’ at the most recent Loewe collection.
Love the shearling style outerwear, strappy heels, and the leather details to toughen up each look.

CHLOE


Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s second collection at Chloe was inspired by actresses from the ‘70s such as Anjelica Huston, Sissy Spacek, and Isabelle Huppert. 
“I want her to be very strong, but you can’t really reach her” Ramsay-Levi said of the Chloe girl.
Chunky jewelry, shirt dresses, and joggers were all seen down the runway of this bohemian collection.

ISABEL MARANT 


Inspired by the American West but in a more modern interpretation. 
Chunky knits, thigh-high cowboy boots, and fringe detailing were all seen.
Loved the menswear styles just as much, especially the jackets.
Saint Laurent-esque cocktail dresses closed the show with leather, tights, and strappy heels.

CARMEN MARCH


I'm so in love with the Carmen March presentation with hints of minimalistic designs mixed with electric animal prints. Also loving the fact that checked suiting is going anywhere for autumn/ winter 2018. 

JACQUEMUS


Simon Porte said that this collection was inspired by a trip he took to Morocco after his last runway show. "My warm winter", with sweater dresses, body jewelry and little black dresses that are perfect for those warm winter nights. 

PACO RABANNE


Paco Rabanne’s chain mail heritage was convincingly meshed in with perfect French classics.
Breton T-shirts, peacoats, and men’s coats were all thrown into the mix to dress down the chain mail pieces. 

ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER 


Missing his beautiful runway show but these images of Bella Hadid make up for the fact that there was no show this season. The '80s are back if that wasn't already clear but Alexandre is just trying to reiterate that with puffy sleeves, Bianca Jagger-esque suits, and loud fabrics!

SAINT LAURENT


Anthony Vaccarello has an affinity for showcasing legs and this collection was no different. Leather leather shorts and ‘80s mini dresses were the weapons of choice when it came to showing off those long limbs. Of course the men’s dressing was fit for a rock star as always and perfect not just for the boys but for the girls to borrow as well. The “no-bottoms silhouettes conspire to draw the eye to the boots: regular black ankle boots with a silver buckle and a new chunky platform shape”, keep an eye out for this trend to take off for autumn/winter 2018. The finale consisted of a dark floral, big-shouldered dresses that will for sure be seen in many editorials in the coming months.
