From the airport-style set at Chanel, to Rick Owens’ gravity-defying presentation, there was never a dull moment to be seen at Paris Fashion Week, even when it came to the clothing. We rounded up our five favourite trends, all effortlessly cool, as is the Parisian way, of course.
A ‘culinary chic’ look hit the Paris runways this season, with an assortment of aprons, showcased and wrapped in multiple ways. Isabel Marant and Chanel styled the trend with trousers, while Nina Ricci layered the new closet staple overtop a dress.
Models geared up for the runway in fishnet pieces, bringing us back to the punk-rock era of the late ’60s and ’70s. The netting was paired with shredded denim at Saint Laurent and a mini skirt at Louis Vuitton, while Valentino’s interpretation had more of a tribal vibe.
Spring’s bralette tops are just too pretty to be hidden away as undergarments. Acne Studios and Balenciaga presented cropped tops with contrasting oversized silhouettes, while tailored trousers looked street-savvy at Mugler.
Trade in traditional jeans for a pair of this season’s roomy denim trousers. The fabric-heavy denim looked sporty with zippered tops at Stella McCartney and Chloé, while Dries Van Noten opted for a work-appropriate polished look, pairing the oversized bottoms with preppy buttoned-up blouses.
Spring’s trending textiles are printed with brightly-coloured geometric lines and shapes. Lanvin embraced head-to-toe prints, while others, like Dior and Kenzo, opted for mixed-and-matched ensembles.
