Miu Miu Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

Oui oui, c’est fini. Miuccia Prada ended a fashion filled month on the happiest note. Sixties style complete with swimwear looks to rock a long summer in Portofino (or any other Italian city by the see). Bright colored, busy printed and fantasy full looks followed each other on the Miu Miu runway. As if those swim caps (and some matching bags) weren’t cheerful enough. Tea dresses were a theme as well as some of the robe-like fur coats in a multicolored palette, that seemed rather hot. Oh well, underneath them models were sporting high waisted bikini shorts, bodices with floral appliques and flip flops. Retro chic with just a touch of modernity. Something to look forward to while autumn has officially arrived and our winter coats can finally have their streetwear moment. Winter is coming, but a joyful summer is just around the corner.

Louis Vuitton Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

Our final day of Paris fashion week started at the second floor of a Place Vendôme venue that is soon to be a Louis Vuitton flagship store. Light and spacious. A fine fit with Nicolas Ghesquière fresh and upbeat collection. A dressed up collection with a twist. After the deconstructed white shirt (that is now everywhere) Ghesquière introduced the deconstructed suit with cut outs and removed slices. Highly unpractical yet just as admirable. Plus the suits worked perfectly with the rest of the rather revealing looks. Like a number of sheer floor sweeping dresses through which both the models lingerie and shoulder pads were visible. As in many of the previous shows shoulders were a big focus point at Louis Vuitton. As were the skinny pants And those ankle booties really worked with every single look. Together with LV’s luxury phone case they might be LV’s little money makers for next season. And there might already be some eager DIY-ers cutting up their grey suit jackets as we speak.

Kenzo Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

Starting off with cool camoflauge prints and little safari co-ords Kenzo’s SS2017 line up soon evolved into more funky dresscodes. Like a patent leather skirt worn with a ruffled blouse and a metallic top. Or a skirt and oversized Tee both which had images of Kenzo back in the (Studio 54, just check out this clip) days printed on them. Yet the best chapter of the show started with a parade of shiny disco dresses full of beads and sequins. Studio 54 dressing on fleek. If only we’d still be able to relive some of those marvellous disco dancing nights. But will surely find other occasion to wear that pink dress with handwritten prints and sparkling top to. It deserves a place in the spotlights that’s for sure. Same goes for those chunky earpieces…wow! Carol Lim and Humberto Leon sure found a way to overcome the H&M hype (their collaboration collection is hitting stores next month). This collection of 54 looks will have both fashion critics and Kenzo customers going wild (like Jerry Hall and Pat Cleveland on that stage).

Chanel Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at Chanel? Yes, of course there’s a workspace filled with dedicated seamstresses, we saw so in the Signé Chanel documentary. But did you know that behind this there’s another layer? It’s the digital headquarters of Chanel. Silicon valley does fashion. Today Karl Lagerfeld gave a glimpse inside this technologic Walhalla where system operator dress in the cutest tweed suits and colourful wires make up for the perfect backdrop. Two Chanel robots opened the show filled with cool kids. Models wearing disco colored ensembles, their caps sideways, medallion necklaces and one statement earring in. Lace underwear details on display. An eighties vibe with an intimate touch. That’s some computer system we’d love to hack into.

Stella McCartney Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

What better way to start off your SS2017 collection presentation than with a dance off? Stella McCartney did just that and let her models whoop, holler and shimmy all over her runway. Refreshing and the ultimate proof that McCartney’s clothes are made to actually move in. Roomy pants, crispy oversized shirts and loose printed T-shirts. Continuing some Milan Fashion week trends the belt bag and raincoat/parka added to McCartney’s focus on practical fashion. Outer space sunglasses, chunky earrings and a handful of necklaces kept the fresh faced models cool. Blankets tossed around their shoulders. And though everything seemed super comfy and wearable, those heels – Stella McCartney paired with a chic all black ensemble – appeared rather wobbly. Yet she did do an excellent dressing job with her husband Alasdhair Willis, who was rocking a slick double-breasted jacket and trousers from her upcoming menswear collection while sitting front row.

Alexander McQueen Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

Dutchie Jessie Bloemendaal led the model parade at Alexander McQueen this morning. All girls had their hair slit back as if their heads were shaved. Statement chokers and chunky earpieces accompanied their rather folkloric looks. Creations inspired by a trip to the Shetland Isles, which Sarah Burton and her designteam made earlier this year. The wildlife they witnessed there led to light weighted dresses (ruffled all over, with mutton sleeves and lace details) matched with leather belts and bodices. Look 10, a colourful knitted patchwork ensemble , looked particularly folkloric and was followed up by a series of McQueen’s signature tartan attires. A handful of suits as a contrast to the heavily embroidered flower dresses that were added later on in the collection. The finale of beautifully crafted (including wildlife embroideries), floor sweeping and most delicate dresses looked breathtaking and must have kept Sarah and her team occupied all some. While most of us hardly come up with a photo album of a recent trip Sarah turns her memories into dream dresses. What a way to elaborate on your latest trip.

Valentino Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris SS2017

After succeeding sir Valentino Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli did a wonderful design job at the luxurious Italian fashion house for years. So when news reached us that Chiuri would leave Valentino for Dior we were all a little worried. Would the Valentino fairytale the designduo had been writing for so many seasons all of a sudden be over?
Turns out it didn’t. Pierpaolo Piccioli made sure his first solo collection for the brand was beautiful and commercially smart. In a new show area, Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, his solo story inspired by medieval art unraveled. Away from the countless maxi dresses of previous collections Piccoli presented a fair amount of daywear. Red brocade velvet pants paired with a crispy white shirt and the tiniest cross body bag you’d ever seen. A patent leather (Valentino)red coat worn over an airy burgundy jumpsuit. A pink layered sweater tossed over another white shirt and loose brocade pink trousers. And let’s not forget to mention that highly admirable trenchcoat inspired cape combined with a pair of royal pants embroidered with patterns of birds and fantasy vegetation. It seems like Piccioli is giving us more dresscode options for SS2017. Which means more reasons to incorporate Valentino into our daily leaves. A smart strategic move for the brand and who could not love that idea?
