Mar 20, 2017

Bye-bye streetwear, Paris and Milan go back to chic! Throw your hoodies away and prepare yourself for a more dressy season, this is the strong message of the latest Fashion weeks. Carlin tells you what’s to remember.

A floral suit

Flowers will not be missed next autumn, and all the better, it is well worth a vitamin D cure. But as the floral dress will already have danced all summer long, the really cool girls will opt for the floral suit option.

And total look please! No mismatching, is that clear ?

Bizarre Frous-Frous

The ruched, the ruffled, the gathered, but in a twisted « grating » way.
Frou-frou, yes, but not soppy. Frou-frou goes conceptual!

Koché plays the ruffled and satiny skirt or dress, with a rather Couture treatment while keeping her  "disruptive" style ; meanwhile the Japanese Sacai continues its skilfully and distructured constructions. The Kenzo house pays tribute to its original creator by revisiting its iconic looks.

Couture Denim

The jeans keeps on reinventing itself and displays this specific shade of blue, unavoidable for next autumn.

At Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri makes it a major theme of her collection, going up to total-look. Y/Project overplays volume effects while Vanessa Seward integrates this slightly vintage denim skirt into her fashion-bourgeois wardrobe.

Business Woman

She is not there to have fun, she has no time to lose, she has money and power.
Paris rethinks the businesswoman wardrobe, between corporate and statutory.

Stella McCartney rules for the 80's banker's dress-tailor and Balenciaga imagines a not-so-classic wardrobe, worn in an unusual way. At Vuittton, Ghesquière offers the perfectly chic wardrobe dedicated to the fashion she-winner.

Feather stuff

Fortunately, there will not only be grayish-brownish checked woollens next winter, we will also have a little bit of fun with marabou feather fringes. Or a whole statement piece.

So many thanks to Italian designers for reminding us that fashion is also an amusing and glamorous thing!
