Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016
With the Spring 2016 shows at Paris Fashion Week officially coming to a close, the runways in the City of Light have offered a dose of quirky, colorful and fresh designs for the season ahead. Behold the future of 2016
Take a look at some runway favs.
On the catwalk at Louis Vuitton, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière unveiled leather motorcycle jackets in black and pink as statement looks. Staying true to the collection’s funky digital theme, futuristic mesh detailed tops, hints of embellishment and strappy black platform shoes also made their way into the collection. For a contrasting effect, loose white blouses and flowing dresses also brought an airy, lighthearted touch to the line. The wigs really made it stand out and emphasized on the blouse color.
Model Lea Holzfuss opened the show in a gray check coat, plaid trousers, and teetering Kiss platform boots. I think this trench coat is wearable with almost anything.
While the show may have been set in Paris, Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli turned to Africa for their Spring 2016 designs. On the catwalk, this translated into a sartorial blend between tribal style and traditional Italian detail. The Valentino runway revealed a peek of intricate Masai inspired beadwork, chunky statement necklaces and flowing frocks. Dresses were finished with colourful embroidered detail, dainty pleats and pops of colour. From basic black to punchy yellow, the collection was an exotic, eye-catching sigh. Yellow is here to stay.
