With the showcase of spring summer 19 season at paris fashion week at an end it means that my month long trip around the 4 most important fashion capitals New York, London Italy and Paris are finished
What were my 3 first Paris trends? I divided it by my first impressions on Colours , Materials, and Silhouettes
_Colours -obviously white especially in Sacái’s asymmetrical looks and A.W.A.K.E debut collection.. then greeny yellow really caught my eye, that is the fluo version of the colour, like the highlighter pen it even appeared as a skirt layer at Drome or at Maison Margiela ‘s embossed lace and a jacket and shorts at Agnes B.
And of course there was the mesh body stockings and much debated Courreges monogrammed tights in The Future is Behind You collection by new Artistic director Yolanda Zobel but by the time Thom Browne showed his version on Sunday there had been enough mesh on the catwalk to make the hosiery part a trend contestant.
_Silhouettes - with gender fluidity a given, Oversized jackets in plain colours or plaid were beautiful at Christian Wijnants. Balenciaga continued with strong shoulders. Agnes B a short and tails combo .Then there was Hedi Slimane’s, Celine super short everything and a new menswear range that continued his skinny suited tailoring look which I am sure will be worn by women too. At least if they can get into them!
