For the Fall collections, Paris wraps up the last leg of European Fashion Week. Some would say the fashion world saved the best for last, others would suggest Paris Fashion Week was more about generating headlines then it was about actual clothing.
You can choose sides, but we could all agree Paris Fashion Week rounded up some unforgettable looks--those boots at Iris van Herpen,!, in an even more unforgettable format--hello Chanel grocer's aisle!
For the Fall Parisian trends suggest; sheen fabrics (Miu Miu, Moncler Gamme Rouge, Louis Vuitton, Iris van Herpen) Variant shades of pink (Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab,Christian Dior, Carven) and Heavy duty silhouettes (Gareth Pugh, Sacai, Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli)
Prime collections include; Zuhair Murad whose floor length dresses were so captivating on its own no runway presentation was needed.
Valentin Yudashkin who cleverly found a variety of ways to utilize black in its purest form, encompassing everything from lace to sheer to leather. And Barbara Bui who in a similar fashion skillfully switched up the routine for black, running from bold rocker glam to savvy business chic.
Perhaps the most talked about show during Paris Fashion Week was Chanel. The Chanel runway was turned into a brightly lit supermarket with models cat walking down the runway and then in between aisles equipped with mock food and shopping carts. The collection itself didn't attract as much attention but did feature overcoats with signature Chanel tweed-- this time more chic with less charm.
Overall, Paris Fashion Week 2014 forged some new designs into the international style domain, with a few trends that didn't catch on with other fashion weeks, giving Paris the upper hand as being one of the most anticipated fashion weeks if not thee most anticipated fashion week in the world.
