Paris Fashion Week has been a success as always, bringing us the parisian trend forecast for next Spring.
Balenciaga showcased structured padded blazers, oversized bags, and high neckline silk blouses. The fashion house brought futuristic full skirts on to the catwalk, teamed with thick strapped heels and matching panelled shirts.
Tiny bustiers and sheer lace were all over the catwalk for Nina Ricci’s S/S 12′ Collection. Glamorous head gear such as bows and tiarras also made an apperance to compliment the neutral navy, creams, and black outfits at the start of the show. Ditsy prints and chunky jewellery brightened up the show, and it was clear to see that midi and maxi lengths will still be bang on trend next summer.
The Christian Dior show made leather cloche hats sexy, teamed with some of the most glamorous dresses that have been shown so far at PFW. Mosaic prints were an obvious inspiration to the collection, with tops, skirt hems and belts adorned with the metallic design. Grid patterns and monochrome rose prints looked stunning on the delicate sheer fabrics. Grown up gowns at maxi lengths, showing off the legs, looked gorgeous on the catwalk, and burnt orange garments brought the collection to life.
The Christian Dior show this afternoon was a collection to be seen, and I reckon mosaic print will be big next Spring after seeing the designers beautiful tile inspired garments. I can’t wait to see the other collections coming up, especially Lanvin and Vivienne Westwood this evening, along with Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Chloe and Miu Miu next week! Excitment!!!
