Parisian chic: top 15 looks from Paris Fashion Week

Another week, another season: Paris Fashion Week has just ended. I saw a lot of retro influences, beautiful colors, amazing outfits and so many innovative shows. Waiting for Spring/Summer 2016 season to begin (yes, I kind of hate winter) all I can do is to flip over and over again the pictures and look for the best looks I have seen at Paris Fashion Week. So, my favorites are…

1. The pants outfits: I am not such a “dress girl” so I find refreshing that a lot of big names have sent on the catwalk the most amazing pieces. I fell in love with the Dries van Noten combos and the choice of rich and glam fabrics as jacquard, brocade and soft silk. I admired the interesting cuts used at Vionnet by Goga Ashkenazi and the never-get-out-of style glitter and cool pants at Isabel Marant. My favorites? Lanvin’s black and white daywear – pants and blouses with ballon sleeves or rippling flounces – and the Hermès incredible relaxed (almost sporty) outfits.

2. The long dresses. If even Sarah Burton from Alexander McQueen favored the long fluid and feminine dresses instead of tough edgy looks, something must be taken into consideration. I loved the sophisticated black lace dress seen at Alberta Ferretti and the bohemian festival vibe of the entire collection (the promise of the sun, sand and Coachella – should I say more?). And even more I enjoyed the theme that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli chose for Valentino Spring/Summer 2016 collection: instead of long red dresses, I could see tribal influences and mini clutches decorated with mini African masks. “The message is tolerance. And the beauty that comes out of cross-cultural expression”, they said. On my shopping list? An architectural printed chiffon dress by Talbot Runhof and a very sexy sheer dress signed by Anne Demeulemeester. (Alberta Ferretti Alexander McQueen, Anne Demeulemeester, Valentino, Talbot Runhof)

3. The cool breeze: Denim and butterflies theme at Andrew GN (a show without its designer, affected by a serious heart condition), a horse and some enormous balls of fabrics at Jacquemus, in the middle of his “Le Nez Rouge Collection”, relaxed and cozy clothes for a urban life designed by Phoebe Philo at Céline, casula chic pieces at Louis Vuitton and a busy airport (yes, an entire airport) imagined by Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.
