Kenzo’s early shows have become seasons after seasons a one no one would miss for any reasons. This season creative directors Lon and Lim got inspired by how Indian temples are built and especially the key role of layers, and came up with architectural pieces in tones of black, gold, red and dusty blue. Key pieces included round-shouldered bomber jackets and a print that will surely be everywhere soon: a third eye featuring on pants, straight jackets and skirts.
A-line seems to be Andrew GN’s favorite shape for next fall winter, and the designer proposed skirts, dresses and coats which all took an evasive form, giving a romantic and feminine touch to the straight cuts of wide-sleeved tops. A stunning large-pleats coat with graphic stitches in black and white and bustier evening dresses in tones of deep kaki and strawberry featured as the best pieces of this chic collection.
Celine knows what sort of women will buy their collections, and this is exactly why they always come up with outfits and accessories active and casual women with a high sense of fashion and a touch of indifference will love. This season fabrics and textures were at the center of attentions, and from the first look on the catwalk (a wooly cream dress), the tone was set. Coats are cut straight and slightly wide on the shoulders, while dresses tend to flare and be teamed with high boots: once again a subtle contrast of easiness and elegance.
Chloe’s creative director, Clare Waight Keller, presented her fourth collection for the house, and it seems that every season she comes up with a stronger and better idea of who the Chloe woman is. This year the designer explores how she goes through life and how this evolution affects her style, going from a schoolgirl look to a professional woman who wears strictly tailored wool capes, fur coats and clean high-waist skirts teamed with graphic blouses.
Givenchy closed the day with a romantic collection in which floral prints featured on biker jackets made feminine and see-through skirts, while Bambi from the Disney movie was used on sweaters (which are bound to be a hit in stores as soon as they will be sold): the child in all of us will be sensitive to this gesture.
