As PFW comes to a close I wanted to share some of my favorite looks from this year's runway.
Many designers had innovative ways in which to showcase their collections inspired by the digital age in which we live.
Tom Ford has come up with an innovative idea to showcase his new Spring 2016 Collection—a music video! Featuring Lady Gaga, Ford displayed his collection through a disco music video having the models dancing down the runway.
The Spring 2016 Collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton is a conversation between technology and nature. Ghesquière said "we are all managing how to integrate these new notions of digital, virtual and cyber with our real life." Combining this thought with his experimentalist personality, his new collection is full of moto jackets and metal-embroidered skirts, laser-cut leathers and beaded knits coded like armor, and spaceship-print pants.
Incorporating metallic pieces within collections was a prevalent theme at Paris Fashion Week.
The Spring 2016 Collection for Saint Laurent has a grunge and glitter theme woven through it. Full of variations of the bias-cut slip dress in metallic sequins, liquid gold charmeuse or black silk, this collection is nothing short of glam.
DRIES VAN NOTEN
Metallics and sequined details made their way into the Dries Van Noten Spring 2016 Collection. The collection included arranging gold, copper, carnation and pale blue sequins in winglike patterns glimmering on the bodices of long, printed 1930's dresses, decorating white shirts and placed on the shoulders of sweaters.
The Spring 2016 Collection for Paco Rabanne merged high-tech sportiness with a sense of casual, disheveled sexiness. Incorporating flowing metallic items in asymmetrical silhouettes Rabanne's signature space-age theme is evident.
Recalling the rounded, billowy silhouettes of the 80's the Spring 2016 Collection by Isabel Marant is full of metallic elements. Layered sequined leggings also made an appearance in this collection.
