PARIS FASHION WEEK SPRING/SUMMER 2019
Fashun, theatrics & more…
No one does chic streetwear the way Virgil Abloh does, and Off-White is fast becoming that label that many a new-age designer would be kicking themselves for for not thinking of it first. His collab with Nike gave us a rather interesting athleisure-meets-eveningwear take on what street style today is all about really, and we were bowing to the creative genius in our minds. We loved the Nike logo emblazoned tees, tights and more in mostly whites, a touch of neon and then some snake print.
Arora’s signature psychedelic rendering of Indian motifs+oodles of neon and fun prints on his chic short dresses, those that were not, tights, skirts, and his amaze accessories and bags were an absolute hit with everyone, and nothing proved it more than the fact that his legion of fans were willing to sweat it out in a show area inside a plastic tent that was clearly too hot for anyone to sit in comfortably in this weather.
Nicolas Ghesquiere showcase at the courtyard of the Louvre no less carried forward his AI-inspired clothes over from Balenciaga, and we saw similar, as well as floral colourful prints on everything from tees, dresses, jackets, pants and jumpsuits, with more straitlace pieces like androgynous suits, white polo necks and leather jackets worn with boots both ankle-length and above.
Karl Lagerfeld had an entire beach created indoors at the Grand Palais, as he had models sashaying the sand in logo-ed shirts, belts, lace pants, straw hats and lots of glittering evening wear, and we went va-va-voom.
