Paris fashion week. Three love affair.
So, here is my story. A few days ago I was looking, what is happening in Milan fashion week and thought, if something will caught my attention (note: good), I will write about it. Milan isn’t my cup of tea, but I never have any preconception and I’m always trying to look at things with a fresh view. But my plan didn‘t work. Or, maybe did, but what stocked into my mind, were things, that I don‘t like and we all know that feeling. So, I will let myself skip Milan (just for now, I will talk about it anyway), but Paris is calling, which is my favorite after New York and we all want to be on track, right?
When a few season ago I saw those perfectly – cut dresses, decorated with metal I knew that they will be my all time favorites. This season A.Vaccarello reached a new level and did what I always think impossible – found a balance between edginess and comfort. Classic tones, but new tailoring and materials. Just take a look at this leather dresses. And skirts. The best stiling so far.
Last year A. Demeulemeester, one of the Antwerp Six designers, made an announcement that she leaves her company. Unexpected and sad, but at the same time interesting – what is next? Few days ago, a new designer trio has started a new era, in which I want to live. Dark, deconstructed, twisted, wrapped and folded pieces. Depth and strong attitude from start to finish and this is what fashion should be about.
Barbara Bui created a new black leather dream. The dream, that next season will come true. Mix of leather, wool, chiffon, different prints and studs. Sharp tailoring, edginess and little tricks (for example, a jacket with strategically placed zippers, which allow to produce a moto-bolero). I think, that those looks visually describe definition of contemporary fashion – practical, but innovative at the same time.
