Fashion Friday: PFW part 2
Can we take a moment to breathe in the beauty of The Isabel Marant collection. A sea of broderie anglaise & whimsical whites give us instant heart eyes. The show took place in Le Jardin du Palais Royal. For us, this range was the most 'Spring/Summer' we had viewed since NYFW. Surface & texture being a focus. 'Le flou' was present, statement pieces and the addition of her first menswear collection. 'I gave into popular demand' Marant admits backstage.
Givenchy had a slight fem-edge. The show took place at Le Palais de Justice. It was the first show for Claire Waight Keller as creative director for Givenchy. We loved how she transformed Maison Chloé and we were secretly hoping she would add 'Le flou' to her first Givenchy range. Staying true to 'Givenchy' and subtly adding ruffles, frills & chains in all the right places. The belt bag made an appearance too. Colours still quite 'fall' looking, but the striking blue made a statement. There was an evident youthful touch on a very Givenchy range.
Ellie Saab has always been my ultimate. Growing up I always dreamed of owning one of the houses heavily embellished gowns. I've never seen an Ellie Saab creation that I never loved or appreciated. The show took place at Le Grand Palais. The collection was inspired by the rain forest. He took to the archives of his 90s range and used them as inspiration. He also included day-wear. 'I feel a new energy in this collection'-he said. We have mixed feelings, but here are our favourites...
