Having GREAT STYLE is all about embracing our individuality, honoring our essence and of course, as we all have well learned from the French: être bien dans notre peau. Oh, yes! That is what I personally CELEBRATE the most when the PARIS FASHION WEEKS go on. It is the time when we most have to let ourselves be free, dream and feel very inspired…
Here some ‘tendances spectaculaires’ for the next AUTUMN / WINTER 2015-16 seasons to fall for...
ART IS IN THE AIR
Opt art, figurative art, abstract art, origamis... You name it. ART was everywhere; mostly in prints, motifs, fabric treatment and strategic detailing. Paris runways spoke out loud about a divine mélange of colors or the black & white eternal successful duo. Lovely! (Images: Valentino, Issey Miyake, Christian Dior & Undercover)
You can choose to impersonate any URBAN SPORT EXPERT, go on and pick your favorite: The equestrian, the car-racer, the runner, the moto-champ, the varsity athlete, the brave army-lady… Paris fashion has given us all! (Images: Moncler Gamme Rouge, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton & Lanvin)
We have been enjoying using pants with shorter lengths for a while… And it seems that we cannot get enough of them because culottes, gauchos, over the ankle pants; loose, tailored of fitted will keep rocking our fashion world for a long time; as it was clearly appreciated in the City of Lights catwalks. Great! (Images: Maiyet, Barbara Bui, Paul & Joe, Valentino)
Yes, BLACK&WHITE once again! This classic pair is part of the savoir-faire in the fashion world; we sure can live with and in them forever. (Images: Roland Mouret, Chanel, Andrew GN & Alexander McQueen)
ALL IN WHITE
Total looks in WHITE were among the most delightful ensembles seen on the runways. They showed such a great aura of elegance, sophistication and modernity at the same time. Impeccable! (Images: Stella McCartney, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Loewe & Akris)
A wide variety of beautiful suits; some with fabulous tailoring other with edgy fits; clearly stated the desire and necessity of today’s tasteful women to be comfortable and powerful. (Images: Emanuel Ungaro, Mugler, Chloe & Kenzo)
Wonderful paillettes, silky and metallic fabrics, shiny beading and detailing generated a very special SPARKLE in so many of the French fashion collections. Gorgeous! (Images: Loewe, Paul & Joe, Sonia Rykiel, Balmain)
Probably one of the richest, most crafted and loudest trend was that of an ETHNIC CHARM. Full of boho vibes; Indian, Asian and Spanish airs; there were fantastic ensembles inviting us to enliven and celebrate this multicultural beautiful world! (Images: Manish Arora, Andrew GN, Kenzo & Balmain)
Very EXQUISITE SHEERNESS materialized in strategic transparent contours, paneling and cutouts, were the clear proof that ‘sexy’ can be very ‘tasteful’! (Images: Givenchy, Elie Saab, Alexander McQueen & Roland Mouret)
BOOTS WITH EVERYTHING
From ankle-boots to over-the-knee ones, BOOTS became the most popular object of desire; since it was all about wearing them with anything! Boots with the most elegant ensembles, with the most relaxed ones, and everything in between. So hot! (Images: Isabel Marant, Christian Dior, Iris van Harpen & Elie Saab)
LIFE IS INDEED A RUNWAY!
