Dries van Noten S/S 19
Paris Fashion Week is in full swing and there have already been showcased some pretty amazing collections as well as some other unexpected occurrences.The show we are the most curious about (Celine, obviously) is only happening tonight and to pass some time until then, we have summed up the previous highlights!
Anthony Vaccarello presented Saint Laurent´s Spring/Summer 2019 collection again under the sparkling light of the Eiffel Tower. The western-inspired collection included tailored tuxedos, shorts (like really short), animal print and the girl meets boy attitude that is so typically Saint Laurent. The designs were empowering and sexy (yes, this goes together) and the patterns, cuts and colours with black being very dominant constituted modern approaches to Yves creations over the time. We think Vaccarello is doing a really great job at Saint Laurent and can´t wait for another round!
Dior´s Spring 2019 ready-to-wear show took place at the Hippodrome de Longchamp. The collection was a homage to modern dance and thus a dance choreography started the show. Followed by tulle ballet skirts, tights, knitted pieces, jersey, pleated dresses, fitted blazers and lots of chiffon in nude, olive, black and navy colours, the collection clearly reflected the source of inspiration. It was Maria Grazia Chiuri´s sixth ready-to-wear collection for the fashion house and we again have to say: Chapeau!
DRIES VAN NOTEN
Oh Dries, our forever favourite. Your clothes are wearable, but not less interesting, they are timelessly elegant and modern at the same time and above all they were surprisingly colourful – shimmering green, bright yellow and striking orange were mixed with a lot of white, black and blue. This colour palette as well as the diverse cuts (draping, workwear inspired tailoring as well as huge bows) make this collection stand out and one of the definite highlights so far.
Jaquemus did teeny-tiny bikinis, daringly décolleté dresses, high slit skirts and strawbags so big they would easily fit your whole life. The collection reminded of a vacation at some fancy seaside place where you spend the whole day at the beach and the entire night at the clubs – elegantly dressed in Jaquemus, of course.
As we already mentioned, Gucci showcased their collection in Paris this season. Alessandro Michele offered his audience a show at the famous club "Le Palace" that, with its slightly decayed flair was the perfect location for the collection that was 70´s, 80´s and very vintage overall.
A highlight at the presentation was Jane Birkin´s surprise performance. During the show, the fashion icon stood up from her seat and sang her song “Baby Alone in Babylone”. Watch her musical intermezzo here:
