From Vinyl trench coats at Miu Miu to a faux-supermarket runway at Chanel – Paris Fashion Week was the perfect end to an epic season. It might be Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 14′ but yellow, orange and bright blue tones consumed the catwalks in the French capital.
Karl Lagerfeld in a supermarket? Never – but a Chanel supermarket boasting aisles stocked with ‘little black teas’ and ‘coco’ pops – yes! Not to mention the models sauntering around carrying baskets draped in Chanel silver chains. Too amazing!
The Chanel presentation was possibly the most spectacular of the week. Lagerfeld’s AW14 collection is sporty, streetwise and chic. With glitter speckled leggings and bright, textured, over-sized coats, Karl Lagerfeld knows how to please the Chanel lady. Cara Delevingne walked the aisles/catwalk in a ripped bubblegum pink two-piece. The show ended with an overhead announcement ‘Dear valued customer, the Chanel store is now closing. Please feel free to pick up your complimentary fruit and vegetables before you leave’. Enough said!
Since Raf Simons took over as Director in 2012, it was only a matter of time before his amazing sportswear vision dominated. The Dior presentation was a mix of masculine tailored coats, teamed with a vivid palette of pink, yellow, green and blue frills. His structured, extravagant skirts are likely to be the key piece of the season!
This collection is all about the weather-concious woman with plastic, draw string boots and colourful, vinyl trench coats. Designer Miuccia Prada’s feminine streak was apparent in every look, with metallic pastels a notable trend. Miu Miu AW14 is practical, stylish and fun!
Star-studded turn out at Miu Miu!
