Every season, new designers are trying to make a good figure in the busy days of Fashion Weeks. Every fashion season, there are some clothes that stand put from the crowd and some runways to remember. And because the Spring/Summer 2018 season is right behind the corner (yes, know, one more month to go with coats and puffas), here are the 10 Spring/Summer 2018 runways I love.
Mira Mikati (photo up) – there is so much fun, so much joy and happiness in Mira Mikati collection so I can only smile every time I see a new collection. This season, the designer arranged a huge skater ramp inside of one of the beutiful old Parisian buildings, gave cotton candy to the guests (read more here) and had presented a lot fo colourful and playful clothes.
Atlein – a fashion house based in Paris by the designer Antonin Tron. I just loved the sandy-beige cotton jackest and pants, as well as the red patterns all over the clothes. A cool urban collection.
Courrèges SS18 – the new collection was designed by an in-house team. We has some more knit sweaters and overall dresses, some sporty pieces in blue and black, and a geometrical line that reminds a little bit (just a little) of ’60s shapes that André Courrèges made his own 50 years ago.
DROMe – I have discovered the Italian brand designed by creative director Marianna Rosati few years ago and it never let me down. This Spring/Summer 2018 collection is more romantic than others, in blue, white or ivory. And the pleated skirts are my favourite, by far.
DRY CLEAN Only – The Asian brand was a nice surprise for me. If I want the coolest T-shirt in the world (rumour has it even Beyoncé has some pieces), this is the place to look. The T-shirts are renewed from vintage ones, made in the ’80s and include wildlife motifs or known logos, mashed with Italian lace and embroideries from India.
Jaquemus Spring/Summer 2018 – brings the same cool and easy vibe. This season it’s about fabulous island girls clad in desert-hued attire, completed by some big accessories. Porte Jacquemus had also been thinking about “French Island girls—they could be in Corsica, or Martinique in the Caribbean, too.”
KOCHÉ – the designer is one of the kind (read here more). And for the Spring/Summer 2018 collection Christelle Kocher collaborated with a local Paris football team on the pieces that incorporated sports jerseys with the Emirates Airlines logo. A sporty line, but with lace inserts and feminine cuts.
Sacai – one of my favourite brands, had a beautiful runway for Spring/Summer 2018 season. The unusual associations, the never ending layering, army parkas associated with puffers, tweed blazers combined with biker jackets, fluid dresses covered by multiple layerings… Chitose Abe is the master of cool this season.
Sies Marjan – the luxury ready-to-wear brand based in New York City had some interesting colours (salmon pink, bright orange, bleu) in clean cuts, perfect for a urban escapade.
Weer – The philosophy of WEER is make the customers hem appreciate the beauty of intelligent, substantial and carefully thought-out clothes, thus opposing the current fashion world. Simplicity is the word: each piece is designed, produced and assembled in Europe while materials are mostly sourced from Japan, France and Italy.
