TRENDS AT PARIS FASHION WEEK FALL/WINTER 2014 COLLECTIONS...

PARIS… Mmmmm… It does not get any better, does it? From February 25th to March 5th, Parisian PRÊT-A-PORTER FALL/WINTER 2014 catwalks absolutely left all the fashion lovers wanting to never ever end… Spectacular fashion was it!
While some designers opted for gorgeous, elegant but certainly ‘jamais’ boring proposals, others created feasts of divine colors, ‘superbe’ avant-garde cuts, volumes and detailing. From the exquisite delicate creations of Elie Saab, to the fantastic Shopping Center of Chanel; Paris once again kept us wonderfully hypnotized… And certainly, that is the way we want to stay!
Talking about fabulous COLOR TRENDS in the City of Light’s runways, BLACK & WHITE were a must; and regal BLUE, GREEN & BURGUNDY were three others strong ones. But beside the tones, let’s go through some ‘merveilleuses’ TRENDS…
EXCEPTIONNEL STRUCTURE
Probably my favorite this time! The level of couture shown in so many Parisian collections through STRUCTURE was simply exceptional! I deeply feel that the artistic construction of structured and voluminous pieces become pure power and translated passion of the greatness of fashion. The invitation is clear… Embrace STRUCTURE and enjoy couture! (Images: Giambattista Valli y Christian Dior)



FORMIDABLE METALLICS
Beautiful METALLICS became one formidable statement maker during these days; taken either as total looks or in vital dosses. Let’s be honest… METALLICS have become a necessity when it comes to enliven our risky but glamorous fashion spirits! We adore them! (Images: Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier, Carven y Rochas)

TRÈS CHIC ANIMAL PRINT
ANIMAL PRINTS are wild but they could look trés chic and elegant, yes! And Paris-established designers proved it true again. Dresses, pants, shirts, jackets & coats mostly in leopard and python prints looked really divine, as they showed a ‘magnique’ sexy but classy vibe… Irresistible!(Images: Vanessa Bruno, Celine, Balmain y Givenchy)

 
ARTISTIQUE PRINTS
Art was all around… It is Paris, how can it not be? Gorgeous artistic prints in wide ranges colors; some with ombré touches, and mostly on dresses, showed an impossible detachment for ‘l’art’ in life… And we, fashion people, will always be ready to celebrate it!

SOFT COULEURS
Delicate, earthy SOFT COLORS such as camel, cream and beige added to many collections that special timeless and refined taste for great fashion. Especially when these tones became ‘total looks’ magic happens! (Images: Chloé, Sonia Rykiel, Paco Rabanne y Veronique Leroy)

SPORTIF ENCHANTMENT
Who said that sports-inspired fashion has to be informal? A supreme 'sportif' mood was reflected in exciting high fashion pieces with super modern athletic forms, cuts and detailing... Pure SPORTIF ENCHANTMENT! (Images: Chanel, Isabel Marant, Maxime Simoens y Rochas)



SUBLIME CAPES
CAPES came strong during fashion weeks this year (and last year)… Ahhhhh… And we cannot feel more grateful for them. In Paris CAPES were again very present as sublime large pieces, inviting us to invigorate that splendid and dazzling panache inside of us… TDF!
