We give you the latest on what's going down at Paris with a daily update fresh off the runway. Here's what went down on days 3 and 4:
J.W. Anderson opens Loewe (his second show for the season) with a sheath dress in honey-colored suede. You’re probably expecting a collection that references the Flinstones but as the pieces transition into palazzo pants and knitted halter tops, that reference gets completely left behind. The high-waisted leather judo pants and graphic sweaters were something altogether — giving off a mod vibe with its color-blocked patterns and tapered proportions. (See the full collection here.)
Sweet, colorful confections in lilac, turquoise, and pale yellow lit up the runway at Issey Miyake. Texture was the name of the game with 3D shapes popping out of slitted skirts, peacoats, and cocoon dresses. With the seam streched creases adding drama to the pieces, the collection was a good mix of wearable pieces that can easily transition from spring to fall. (See the full collection here.)
Retro-future was the main theme at the Dior show with Raf Simons giving us cocoon-like jackets, skits, and trenches. When seams weren’t rounded, he kept them sleek and streamlined with skinny belts and drawstring waists pulling the look together and giving it a little bit of shape. (See the full collection here.)
If there’s one designer who lives and breathes to surprise and delight everyone in all of his runway shows, it would be Jean Paul Gaultier. At his final RTW collection ever, Gaultier didn’t fail to make it one spectacular fashion extravaganza we’ll never forget. The presentation was divided into sections showcasing his most famous works and was built around the concept of a beauty pageant called Election de Miss Jean Paul Gaultier 2015. One segment, our favorite apart from Coco Rocha fake-fainting at the end after she won, was that of magazine editors featuring their signature looks. We’re talking about models dressed up as Grace Coddington , Carine Roitfeld, and Suzy Menkes(!)—a bold move that we all clearly loved. Go ahead click the link to see the full show yourself.
Who knew tailoring, deep Vs, and high slits go well with fruits, veggies, and lipstick? Yes, fruits and vegetables were very much present at Acne Studios’ spring presentation through various printed coordinates shown in between Acne’s impeccable tailoring. According to creative director Jonny Johansson, he was inspired by young people of today and their fascination with luxury goods. The final look? Model Vanessa Axente in a towel, a teal wrap green terry cloth towel to be exact, wrapped around her body as if she just got out of the shower styled with a gold chain necklace. See full collection.
