Paris Fashion Week Fall 2014

Paris_Fashion_week

Well my fellow Fashsetters, final fashion week has come and gone – Paris Fashion Week that is! The Parisians always seem to find a way to go out in style! Let’s take a look back at Paris Fashion Week’s top trends and highlights for 2014:

• The Chanel show was easily one of the most magnificent of all Paris Fashion Week. In between classic schlock rock, models browsed the aisles in slim fit track pants, trainers – some of which were mid-calf-high – crop tops and trashy-fabulous oversized bouclé overcoats. And If you thought that all the supermarket flora and fauna at Chanel’s presentation was just for show, think again. Karl Lagerfeld has gone all sweet on us and fashioned covetable Chanel bracelets out of the edible candy jewellery!

• In keeping with Alexander McQueen’s “Where The Wild Things Are” setting, the models wore chain mail hand jewellery laced with tiny leaves and acorns. Can I say, We are going nuts for them…? ; )

• Marking his first collection at the helm of Louis Vuitton, artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière, made his vision for the brand known with a sleek and contemporary collection for fall-winter 2014. His predecessor Marc Jacobs was known for featuring elaborate sets to go along with his designs, i.e. – think models on carousels, models on escalators or an Orient Express inspired train, but Ghesquière kept the setting simple at the Louvre’s Cour Carrée venue. The silhouette this season features high-waisted short A-line skirts paired with long-sleeve or sleeveless tops in futuristic, optical prints.

• Inspired by unconventional women of the late 60s and early 70s, Valentino set the trend: calf-length skirts, handkerchief hems, knee-length boots, Little Red Riding Hood capes, crazy coats, skirts’n’sweaters, polo-necks, blanket coats, sensible handbags. The taste level was sky-high from start to finish. Exquisite.

• Raf Simons did something different for his fourth Dior collection. He made clothes for real life. There were trouser suits, quilted jackets and dresses for going out to dinner, all in a high-pigment color palette. The coats slung over models’ arms – a stance familiar to any woman dashing around a city – were a nice touch too.

Let’s now take a look at the top trends the fabulous French left us with:

1) Totally Tweed!
2) Leopard Print Passion
3) Pretty Princess Pleats
4) Crème Color Palettes
5) Fur/Shearing Chic
6) Cool Capes
7) Girl-like Gloves
8) Fancy Fringe
9) A-Line Accents
10) Black/Brown Leather Belt Baby!

And that wraps up Paris Fashion Week – the grand finale of all four fashion weeks for 2014! Hope you all enjoyed tuning in and please stay tuned for next season!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
