The Paris leg of the fashion extravaganza is over, and with it, the spring 2018 fashion shows. But before we close up shop for good this season, take a look at the various trends that Paris’ designers put on display.
Balmain | Aalto | Christian Dior
Patent leather and vinyl are the perfect complement to spring’s light and airy feel – and designers are embracing them big time.
Each x Other | Redemption | Balmain
Bling it on
Sequins were another big statement in Paris, just as they were in Milan. However, these weren’t the soft and delicate looks of Italy, but rather powerful statement suits instead.
Rochas | Lutz Huelle | Anrealage
The bigger, the better
Voluminous couture shapes were a big hit on the Paris runways. More is always more according to the French.
Rodarte | Ann Demeulemeester | Maison Margiela
Flocks of feathers floated light as air down the catwalks of Paris.
Nina Ricci | Off-White | Saint Laurent
Show some leg
Bike shorts, Bermuda shorts (whatever you want to call them) made an appearance in a big way this Paris Fashion Week. We’re not going to lie, they’re a tough sell.
Mugler | Uma Wang | Olivier Theyskens
The bustier, a classic lingerie item, is back in fashion in the city of love. Not since the release of Moulin Rouge! have we seen so many on parade.
Issey Miyake | Dries Van Noten | Christian Wijnants
Every Parisian woman knows 101 ways to wear a scarf, so the abundant accessory options came as no surprise.
