Fashion month is still going strong. This weekend was particularly buzzy with shows from Givenchy, Céline, Chloé, Kenzo, Acne, and Dame Vivienne Westwood. Here’s a quick breakdown of what you need to know!
1. Givenchy Was All Victoriana-Meets-Chola.
Designer Riccardo Tisci showed beautiful Victoriana-inspired dresses that would make Jane Eyre do a double take. With the help of mega makeup artist Pat McGrath and hair god Luigi Murenu, he offset the look with septum rings (one for each nostril!), crystal face adornments, and cute curls that were shellacked to the models’ foreheads. It was all very FKA Twigs.
2. The Chloé Collection Was Inspired By Stevie Nicks.
With Fleetwood Mac as the blaring soundtrack, designer Claire Waight Keller showed a very cool and laid-back collection reminiscent of Nicks’ Rumors era. The singer can never do wrong in our minds so this collection is okay by us.
3. Phoebe Philo Is One Foxy Lady
The Céline show is always a fashion editor favorite, and this season was no exception. Designer Phoebe Philo added a bit of whimsy to her typically reserved collection with whimsical animal illustrations taken from children’s books.
4. Blanket Coats Are Still a Thing
We saw them last season at Burberry, and it turns out that the blanket coat is still going strong. Here is the version that Kenzo sent down their runway on Sunday morning in Paris. Wrap yourself in luxury why don’t ya?
5. And So Are Fisherman Sweaters.
Nina Ricci’s incoming Creative Director Guillaume Henry seems happy at his new home. (He exited Carven in September.) His outwear was on point, but he also hit upon the ongoing fisherman sweater trend, this one had different knits for a cool and unexpected twist.
6. Pharrell Williams Has a New Hat for His Collection.
Vivienne Westwood called her collection “Unisex” which focused on a different way of looking at what is beautiful. This translated to dresses for both men and women and oversized jackets with exaggerated shoulders. There was also prominent headgear that we’re sure the trendsetting “Happy” singer will be sporting soon.
7. Designers Are Really Trying to Make Face Jewelry Happen.
Aside from the crystal facial adornments at Givenchy (see above) and the oversized pearl-encrusted earrings at Balenciaga, there was also these craggy gold nose clips at Acne. I guess if you’re going to wear something that big on your face it should look like a golden booger.
