Our Fashion contributing editor and Fashion Director of Vogue Polska Daniela Agnelli resumed Paris Fashion Week by the most outstanding details for us.
FUTURE TEC: Probably Stella McCartney was highly inspired by her just launched men’s wear collection which carried her typical sense ofutility and athleisure. No ruffles, just clean lines like her cool accessories, looking bright into the future. A similar futuristic touch was found at the Longchamp racecourse where Nadége Vanhee-Cybulski presented her Spring 2019 Ready – To – wear Collection for Hermes on a mirrored futuristic runway instead of the usual horse aesthetic the house is known for.
PRINT HEAVEN: If you love textile design and want to stand out next summer, this is your season. Textile design came in big and at Chanel the parasol image set the line to the entire show and stage setting #CHANELByTheSea. Miu Miu played with their signature retro design prints and Nicolas Ghesquière used an artistic appeal for his detailed prints which matched perfectly to his futuristic cuts which he is known for.
BAREFOOT PLEASE: How to get the constant good feeling of a summer holiday? Walk bare foot in the sand like at Chanel. The runway was transformed into a sandy beach lane and Johanna Ortiz known for her ruffled south American sexiness transformed a Parisian apartment into a Columbian Cocktail bar with rum cocktails and tropical fruit floating around each room . Summer is always a good idea.
MAKE UP ACCESSORY: Make-Up became full attention accessory, something that built the DNA of a collection like for example at Valentino, where Pierpaolo Piccioli was inspired by artists like Matisse and Gauguin, escaping to paradise to explore their art and life’s which was reflected in the Swarovski studded eye make ups which made models look like paradise bird from a place called Eden.
Chanel stayed classic but their bright red, matte lipstick became a signature must for almost each look.
BIG & BOLD: We have seen lots of flat bold shoes, certainly some of the most beautiful ones at Valentino. These sandals gave each look something eternal, youthful and symbolized that walking needs to be done in comfortable footwear while dresses can go up to couture. Be mobile, be chic and stay eternally cool. Same with earrings, which can be worn when they are big and mighty with almost no make-up, perfect for an androgynous beauty which was the muse at Clare Waight KellerCollection for Givenchy
