The designer-duo Viktor & Rolf created their entire s2018 couture-collection from the same fabric: a technical satin duchesse from Japan, a noble cloth that for the design duo spells couture.
They ticked off a run of best-of silhouettes while they were at it. The opening woven minidress recalled the hessian dress worn by Maggie Rizer in the label’s fall 1999 collection, for instance, with signature elements like cape shapes, flowers, bows, frills and ruffles adding texture to the collection.

Long silk gowns and skirts cut on the bias sported bold colored stripes or geometric motifs sewn into the fabric, recalling granny patchworks. The standouts included a double-breasted blue and red striped blazer with a royal-blue frill framing it, running from the collar down the sleeves.

The collection had an old-school couture vibe but was wearable, with the highlights including a green silk minidress with 3-D daisies.

The newness in the colorful lineup mixing conservative and clownish attitudes came not only in the innovation, with the designers managing to create new materials using the fabric, but also in its sustainable bent.

From camouflage or tribal tattoo prints and military themes to nineties sportswear influences (yes, still) and full frontal logo’s. Paris officially has us inspired and excited for upcoming winter. And though Milan menswear already planted some cool trend ideas in our heads; we can now truly decide on our fall/winter favorites.

Iris van Herpen Catwalk Fashion Show Haute Couture Paris SS2018

This season Iris van Herpen presented a serene, more wearable collection. Despite the labor-intensive nature of the clothes with the opening Foliage dress requiring 260 hours of 3-D printing and endless other high-tech processes — there was an immateriality to the collection.
The designer stuck to classic couture shapes. But the structures looked ultra fragile, with van Herpen focusing on silk-tulle bases covered in geometric formations of laser-cut fabrics, as well as her signature exoskeleton structures.

She used as her starting point the aerial photography of Thierry Bornier and Andy Yeung, among others, along with the organic floating paper sculptures of Dutch artist Peter Gentenaar, with a selection of them suspended from the ceiling of the show venue. The final dress resembled a living version of one of his works.

Balmain Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2018

Olivier Rousteing – Balmain’s designer – reinforced everything the brand is known for, revisiting house classics like the short jacket, the tight pants, the military jacket and the marinière in a torrent of metallic, glittery embellishments. The direction was echoed in the women’s looks, which were hooked on signature sexy, thigh-skimming dresses.
Sticking to his skinny, square-shoulder silhouette, military — one of the season’s key trends — was a major theme, but more for the embellishments than a utilitarian mood, with plays on pockets, zips and lacing on a run of khaki green bombers and bikers.

Vetements Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2018

Demna Gvasalia, the designer of Vetements, went back to his designer roots and to the [Martin] Margiela approach.He wanted to shows his gratitude towards the label where he learned a lot of his designer skills and ways of breaking the rules.
He did it his own way with his signature mash-up of signs and prints, thrift-store sportswear collages and Eastern European peasant styling, with silhouettes built from piled-up oversized shirts in a jumble of prints and headscarves.
But the collection also had a softer, chicer side to it. His idea of turning oversized jackets around to expose the tags was very Margiela-esque, as were the tribal tattoo T-shirts and crumpled suits that looked as though they’d been picked off the bedroom floor.
Remixing his favorite things from his own youth, the designer added Marilyn Manson T-shirts, cut up his favorite T-shirts to create quirky assemblages of graphic messages and included a hookup with Nineties club-kid sneaker brand Swear. The customized denim with hand doodles and kids’ stickers added a playful, more joyful mood to the collection.
