It’s the homestretch now in Paris, with the biggest names in fashion showcasing their F/W’19 collections.
Here are the labels that delivered some note-worthy looks…
What went down: The Queen of vegan everything delivered a politically charged collection, focusing on female empowerment and ethical practices. Sustainability was recognised in a dress made of knitted strips of old T-shirts and some fake fur and leather. She also repurposed fabrics from past collections and used sustainable viscose across the F/W’19 collection. Overall, the looks for the season play to a blend of structure and softness, with at times sharp tailoring and other times, draped silhouettes.
What went down: The minimalist-minded French brand kept to an overall clean look for the F/W’19 collection – but also, they collaborated with LA-based streetwear brand, Brain Dead which saw a proliferation of graphic hoodies and chunky sweaters and oversized parkas. Basically, we’ll be getting all our wardrobe essentials from A.P.C. next season.
What went down: Giambattista Valli made delivered an effortlessly feminine and breathy collection that spoke to the Parisian woman, after heading to India and Morocco for the last two collections. With cocktail dresses, skirt-blouse combinations laden with ruching, ruffles, feathers and bows, the looks were definitely not pared down. It’s said that Valli is a gardens kind of guy, hence the thick use of florals. But, there were also some masculine elements, too with an all-black suit broken up with some edgy footwear for a futuristic slant.
What went down: True to form, Creative Director Sarah Burton conveyed both a hardness and softness to the F/W’19 collection for McQueen. You had models wearing tough metallic jewellery, combat boots, chokers and crossbody chain jewellery, offset by floral printed dresses, ruffled skirts and poufy tiers. The statement pieces had to be the trio of extravagant, voluminous gowns with fabric formed into gigantic rosettes. Vision and craftsmanship stood out super strong in this collection.
