It has taken all week to find inspiration in the collections from Paris this fashion week. Yes the designers always excel at sending avant garde designs down the runways but this fashion week, I honestly think many of them were simply trying too hard. Way harsh maybe, but each to their own, right?
I’ll start with my favourite collection which was at Chloe. Khaki, navy, pleats, shorts, prints, simple elegance.
Valentino was divine as always, there were hints of the 70s, aztec and very boho inspired.
Alexander McQueen – structured and feminine, and yet not really. I couldn’t decide if I liked this collection because some of the models looked dreadfully unwell, I don’t know if it was the lighting or the makeup. I don’t usually mention things like this but I felt it really detracted from the clothes.
Miu Miu turned out to be my second favourite collection this fashion week. It was warm and quirky, the clothes very wearable and the gorgeous sumptuous colours and the boots and tights, which I always fall for!
Finally, Hermes which was delovely and I am posting this picture of Cat McNeil because she evokes memories of Grace Kelly in Mogambo.
The key trend spotted have definitely been shorts, and I love shorts so this is exciting stuff because over the next season we will see more and more in the high street shops. I’ve blogged before about shorts so prepare for more!
love & light xo
