Another day another Fashion Week, Paris exploded onto the Spring/Summer 18 stage, giving us edgy and controversial collections that has certainly sparked some hot conversations here at Voir.
Facetasm was amongst the first group of designers to kick off Paris Fashion Week. They played around with layers and classic styles that took on a contemporary look with the use of bright colours that popped against the darker shades.
Issey Miyake Men’s clean aesthetic was lifted by the garments being exaggerated by shape and texture. The garments were bunched and tied together to create fluidity with the fabrics yet still showed shape to the models figures creating a clean and modern look.
Balenciaga’s S/S18 collection certainly turned heads and split some opinions with it’s third menswear collection designed by Demna Gvasalia. The show was set in the grounds of the Bois de Boulogne park which created a forest like environment with chairs stretching down the long catwalk. The choice of models certainly got people talking, the inspiration for the shoot was based on dads on their day off and to further portray this concept, they had actual families walking in the show. Some of the models had their kids walking along side them also dressed in Balenciaga garments with slogans that emphasised hope, which beautifully represent the younger generations.
Lemaire showed us how to work a colour palette and wear it well. Bright colours were balanced out with softer darker tones. Their garments were elegant with a causal feel. Mixing matte with lustre fabrics to add some real luxurious personality.
A bold contemporary art inspired collection was brought to the catwalk by Walter Van Bierendonck. Colourful Picasso style artwork popped against dark colours and garments were oversized and gave us a futuristic glance into a cartoon world of optical illusions where art meets fashion.
