The streets of Paris, a route on the Quai de Conti to be precise, formed the backdrop of Chanel’s couture show this week. A signature Chanel collection titled High Profile, filled with classic tweed suits and delicate, crystal encrusted showpieces. Hairdo: rockabilly style. Color code: gray with touches of pastels and neutrals. Tweed suits with skirts that ended just above the knee and jackets with long slit sleeves formed a big part of the collection. Other returning ingredients were strong shoulders, lots of layers of tulle, cut-outs, high collars and sparkly boots. A finally of opera worthy gowns had some pieces so lavishly decorated they seemed like a heavy burden to wear. Luckily some high slits and off shoulder details added a little space to the looks. A bride in a mint colored, floral embroidered, diamond encrusted skirt and top with matching headpiece and veil was the last women the walk alongside the Seine. A show very Paris and very French (as Karl Lagerfeld himself put it) and thus the ultimate promotion of both the city and it’s astonishing haute couture.

Leopard has almost become a neutral and mixing prints is getting more casual by the day. And so this season’s most eclectic looks don’t even seem that extraordinary. They’re out there for sure, but they have a certain effortless to them. Like you’d want to wear florals, checks and animals prints in the brightest colors all together any regular business day. Like a veggies printed dress, a flower embroidered jacket, flower shaped sunnies and green glitter socks (Dolce  & Gabbana) make up for the perfect grocery shopping attire. Like an oversized kimono over a Manga printed dress combined with the frizziest coupe (Vivienne Westwood) work perfectly for a dinner date. No holding back; it’s prints and colors in the mix! Eclectic and easy.

Tattered, fringed, cut out, destroyed and deconstructed; this summer’s dress code requires outfits made out of bits and pieces. Like Ann Demeulemeester’s trenchcoat with midriff and shoulder baring parts (worn with half a hat!). Or Helmut Lang’s collection filled with asymmetrical cut ‘n paste styles. And then we have Margiela who created several types of garments out of cut out coats and pieces of decorative fur. Especially lingerie/swimwear looks seemed to exist of leftover fabrics. To keep everything together as one outfit the designer’s go to shade was black. Fringed black fabrics with a touch of tattered; are you in?

Trend Report SS2018: Off shoulder (done differently)

It’s sexy without wearing a tight dress and high heels. It’s about showing off different body parts that have a high level of sensuality/sexiness. Like the ankle/heel we spoke about shoulders and collar bones work the same kind of magic. So off shoulder dresses go up in the effortless femininity category. Perfect for dinner nights, those loose dresses let you eat as many courses as you like. And perfect for showing off some (beautifully tanned) skin and give that new necklace or pair of earrings some extra spotlight. And you might think: well we’ve seen this season after season. Yet there is a new twist to this trend! Underneath that off shoulder can be a sexy piece of lingerie subtly showing through/popping up. Giambattista Valli gives you the ultimate example. A little lace piece or just a tiny sexy strap giving you a hing of what’s underneath it all. So off shoulder with some li la lingerie shining through.
