As Paris Fashion Week finally draws to a close let's take a look at my Favourite Moments from Paris Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2015 RTW.
Cherry Skulls Anyone?
Jun Takahashi’s Undercover show revealed The Garden of Earthly Delights in 51 looks. The show was full of interesting things like cartoon videos that played in the mirror frames on the chests of a few tech-fabric coats and brass-knuckle rings dangling twin-cherry minaudières.
Join the Chanel Revolution
Karl Lagerfeld always sends nearly twice as many outfits down the runway than any other designer at Paris Fashion Week. This years Spring Summer 2015 RTW show was set on Boulevard Chanel and for the finale the models took to that street in protest, toting feminist placards and chanting slogans. Be Your Own Stylist. Boys Should Get Pregnant Too. Make Fashion Not War.
There is a Rochas on my Chest
It's Alessandro Dell'Acqua's second season at Rochas and Rs and belts above the waist were on high rotation. He lifted a hummingbird pattern from the Rochas archives and used this as a print and as a beaded embroidery. This along with his use of transparent fabrics made the show light and playful.
Floral Oriental Bondage @ McQueen
I don't think I have ever disliked a McQueen show. However I can go far beyond this season to share my opinion - the Spring Summer 2015 show at Paris Fashion Week was simply stunning. The obvious references to Eastern dress, the black headpieces, bondage harnesses and floral motifs were beautiful. I think my favourite look is below in the second photo. I simply adore the petal skirt!!
The Jean Paul Gaultier Party
Jean Paul Gaultier announced earlier this month that he would shut his RTW collection to focus on haute couture and his perfume. Gaultier's last RTW show was a beauty pageant complete with a judge played by Rossy de Palma parodying Madame de Fontenay, the behatted former chairwoman of the Miss France committee. I was especially fond of the older women who modelled - they went down the runway with hot male models.
