Paris fashion week never fails to wow and shock the media and public with its elegant, unusual and distinctive trends every season. My personal favourite so far has definitely been the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs collection. By using geometric shapes and bold colours, futuristic statement designs were developed and an exceptional set was there for the designs to be shown on. The graphics and designs were inspired by Daniel Buren, a French conceptual artist, whom is best known for using bold contrasting stripes within his work, often on landmark architecture.

Paris fashion week has also had Raf Simons’ ready-to-wear debut at Dior and Hedi Slimane’s first collection for Yves Saint Laurent. Raf Simons’ debut has been reviewed so positively by the media, mainly because Raf is described as a ‘lovely person’ and without a doubt has great talent, as reflected in the designs presented to us this season. With Dasha Zhukova, Natalia Vodianova, her boyfriend Antoine Arnault and Victoire de Castellane front row at his show, Jennifer Lawrence as his muse, and raving reviews from notable journalists, its undoubtable that the Belgian designer will be popular for the years to come.
With Paris fashion week coming to an end, it’s clear to see that this season is all about bold statement pieces with geometric shapes and various textures of fabrics. Femininity is without a doubt still in, and pastels are still lingering subtlety behind new trends.
