Rainbow shades in bold, pure pigments brought a vibrancy to several of Paris’ shows. The queen of minimalism, Phoebe Philo went wild with primary hued graffiti, while Karl Lagerfeld explored kaleidoscopic shades at Chanel. Riccardo Tisci’s pailette rainbow dresses were one of the season’s highlights.
2. Drop Down
Long tunics and tops layers over wispy or flippy skirts created a new silhouette this season. A modern take on the classic drop waisted flapper look, the style was seen at collections including Balmain, Chloe, Celine and Kenzo.
3. Posy Power
Fashion will be in full bloom next seasons with all manner of petals, buds and stems finding their way on to garments. Whether it was tattoo style roses or horticultural sketches, inspiration was taken from way beyond even the most accomplished herbaceous border.
4. Fondant Fancies
If rainbow shades aren’t your thing, fear not. For next summer there will be a more gentle palette to play with. Sherbert lemon, lavender, spearmint and pistachio all features on Paris’ catwalks, pumping pastel tones with new energy.
5. Pleats Please!
Corrugated chiffon, silk and linen skirts have been seen on catwalks across the fashion globe. In Paris, pleats were also integrated into other garments. At Dries Van Noten, for example, we had pleated faux leather which was then stitched into ruffles and attached to tops, skirts and dresses. The pleated skirt found fans in Giambattista Valli and Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
