FASHION NOW: SPRING 2018 PART 9 PARIS

imageI have always been a huge fan of Comme Des Garçons and the Spring 2018 Collection, shown in the Russian Embassy in Paris, does not disappoint.  Filled with the creative imagination of Rei Kawakubo the prints take one’s breath away.  I have been talking about shoes throughout all the Collections, again, they are an important element in this collection.  Perhaps something in a new hairdo….yes, I know, outrageous, but they got us talking!  Thought-provoking as always yet elements that break down to be visionary and in the end, wearable!  See below for a couple more of the looks.  No one combines print like CDG!

Another designer who always pushes the limits is Thom Browne, here is his take on the season and why not lead off your finale with a unicorn…….imageimageimageSome of my trends…chrome yellow, black and white along with an illusion of stripes.

One of my favorites is Andrew Gn, a creative genius, that I have had the pleasure of working with.  His Collections are always filled with his own prints, brilliant color and color combinations, charming must have handbags and jewelry all from his brilliant imagination.  A designer who knows exactly what his client wants and gives it to her. Here are a couple I chose as favorites and that fit into my trend themes for these posts.

Of course Chanel, this time the staging is mammoth waterfalls.  Lots of vinyl/plastic shoes, bags., trench coats and capes, but always you know it is without question Chanel!!!!imageimageimageimageDenim a la LagerfeldimageimageimageBlack shiny trenchimagePale yellow

One of my most favorite collections….Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.  Sarah finally coming into her own, a stunning presentation.  Hard-edged feminity with a floral bower for the staging.  Loved it!imageimageimageimageimageimage

imageimageI’m mad for the hair and other accessories and note the beautiful combination of prints, texture, and subtlety of color, divine.image

And to end not only Paris Fashion week but all four of the major markets….Louis Vuitton‘s, Nicolas Ghesquière chose the temple like “catacombs” of the Louve!  Spectacular to say the least!  Viva la mode!!!!
