Let’s get straight to the point! The SS15 fashion week has ended and we’re also going to end our reviews of the shows today! Paris is our last destination and you girls could read on and find out which collections made our jaws dropped!
We always love the clean aesthetic of Phoebe Philo’s design. This season though, Philo offered a new sense of character for her Celine SS15 collection through proportion and movement, but that minimal, sleek image still prevails. We love the details attached to all the simple wardrobe, like lacquered inserts, circle shaped cutouts right in the middle of a long top, and those beautiful pattersns. She also used fringe along the hem of knitwear tank dresses! It was really fascinating. The models also walked in pairs of flat and functional shoes. To-die-for.
Now what did Carol Lim and Humberto Leon think about when they designed their SS15 collection? Well, Leon said that they were really into the optimism for the future. No wonder that the whole collection was filled with transparency, mesh, and even euphoric graphic prints. And to make it even more futuristic, as the guests entered the venue, a robotic-girl called Knola greeted them on several giant screens, speaking in English, French, Chinese, and Japanese. For the trend, sport-style inspired outfit were seen lots of times on the catwalk – models strolled around in denim skirts, boot-cuts, jackets and square-cut shirts. Kenzo’s SS15 show was totally an optimistic look at the future.
And… back to the all white outfit we’ve seen popping op on the NYFW SS15 runways. Here in Paris, the trend was also used by many designers including Christian Dior, Isabel Marant, and Issey Miyake.
See in the picture above? Black and white were used heavily on Christian Dior SS15 collection. Raf Simons has continued the July’s couture collection and recreated the historical volumes of the late collection with more contemporary fabrics and tapestry prints. In short, Raf Simons has evolved the couture collection to the realm of pret-a-porter. A series of white cotton shirtdresses, white sleeveless top combine with ball-gown skirts that were embellished with broderie anglaise were absolutely our favourite. Through this collection, Raf Simons succeedeed in writing a new page for Christian Dior diary with the view of the future.
Another all white ensembles were seen on Issey Miyake SS15 collection. Models sashayed away on the white catwalk wearing sheer pieces all paired with open toed flat sandals. The white silhouette gave us a very refreshing look, and it’s not Yoshiyuki Miyamae if he is not playing with art – he played with fabrics and textures that were achieved by using the house’s 3D Steam Stretch, that can allow volume to be extruded from a simple piece of cloth! How amazing is that? The whole collection was also topped off with artistic hats that perfectly complemented all the wardrobe. We’re in love.
Again, in Isabel Marant SS15 show, we could see models walking in skinny mini dresses, skirts, white perforated denim carrot jeans with tabbards belted at the waist. The monochrome looked very chic and comfortable, and they were completed with the key of the show: Embellishment and Embroidery.
Do you want to have a very crisp and cool outfits for next summer? You should try Stella McCartney SS15 collection. We saw white jumpsuit, nude long top with slit skirt that brought a sense of dressy ease for daytime silhouettes. McCartney even created buckles that fastened the cross-straps of the wrap tops that was currently very pretty. The whole collection was effortlessly sexy.
Last but not least, Chanel, again will be our most favourite show this season. We have never thought that Karl could top off the supermarket venue last season, but staged act they were giving us on the end of Chanel show was all that we need – the best dressed feminist march on the street. Models bearing banners that were written ‘#HeForShe’, ‘History is her story’ and, ‘Make fashion not war’.
The whole collection was inspired by the 70s, just like the theme of many SS15 shows, an era where there were lots of anti-war protest happening and the growth of the women’s rights movement. The catwalk was filled with a whole lot of bright shades of red, orange, pink that were mixed in abstract water color print. Loose cropped trousers were worn with tweed trimmed polo shirts, mens pinstripes suirt popped up with a lacquered sheen and worn with ruffled cotton tops. What not to love about that?
So that’s all girls. Our favourite from the ss15 fashion week this year. Who is your favourite designer? Which collection do you like most? Tell us in the comments below!
