After New York, London and Milan, the fashion season is ending in Paris – as every year. The final shows of the season bring out the best in the fashion capital. With inspiration and trends for spring and summer 2018 aplenty, here’s an overview:
This year, luggage specialist Louis Vuitton is travelling through time. Head designer Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection leaps back and forth between the centuries, with 18th-century brocaded coats being shown alongside T-shirts from 21st-century series like Stranger Things. Just as in March, the new designs were revealed to fashion fans in the Louvre.
’50s vintage in the ’90s was the inspiration for Miuccia Prada. Which transported her (and us) back in time to her early days at Miu Miu and her first show in New York in 1993.
In a such an uncertain world, Sarah Burton decided to get back to basics: the beauty of nature. By paying tribute to the healing power of flowers with a floral collection.
With oversized fringed boots combined with mini jumpsuits or voluminous feathered tops, there was no mistaking that Anthony Vaccarello had been experimenting with silhouettes and textures.
The moon as a parallel universe was at the back of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s mind when he was working on his latest collection. But that doesn’t mean that he created sci-fi or astronaut looks – instead, he took a more subtle approach with lots of sequins and exciting cuts.
