Balmain brought the wild to the runway. The collection, the very makeup of luxury with prints in python and knits of golden tone, seemed 80s -inspired, and as The Times remind, Olivier Rousteing “isn’t a designer who does things by halves.” Balmain looks expensive and is, just that.
Marie Elie drew on a muse beckoning from years gone by with pieces designed to ensure chic appeal at any fine occasion.Lace, jeweled embellishments, cages and corsets take these pieces back in time, yet short cuts and sheer fabrics fasten them firmly in the 21st century.
Dior selected a quirky yet sweet tone with their respective Spring/Summer 2017 collection. New creative director for Dior women’s wear, Maria Grazia Chiuri, shared about her inspiration behind the collection:
“I know what I like and what I don’t like. I like the sign of the star, so why not? And I love also the cut that Slimane used in the denim, so I used that.”
“I love John Galliano’s newsprint dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex in the City. And the saying ‘J’adior’ is a sentence that my generation will always have in mind.”
Lanvin ensured that the collection was fierce yet luxurious, for any fashionista seeking to add a bit of an edge to her wardrobe. Top models made up the runway show for this fashion house, and the ladies helped the sexy, yet stunningly-crafted pieces sizzle all the more.
Chloe ensembles melded bohemian relaxation with elegance and grace. A palette of rosy hues and deep navy, next to stark whites and lounge-worthy silhouettes, found the runway for the reveal. Each piece, stands out from the other, yet the collection works fluidly as a chic entity, enticing fashionistas to fill their closets.
