Best of F/W15 Fashion Week

As Paris Women’s Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015 called it a wrap, we present our recap of the 4 most stunning fashion armies that marched during the seasonal event.



“As fashion stunts go, getting Derek Zoolander to walk the finale alongside his fictional male compadre, Hansel, was quite the coup de théâtre” says the FT’s Jo Ellison  on the show that brought the element of surprise to a more celebrity level. And Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s autumn/winter 2015 collection itself deserves similarly high praise. Sensua and independent”the italian house continues to explore the beauty of monochrome whilst later in the show the soft earthy neutral hues received the shimmery treatment they deserve. A patchwork of creativity full of ankle length dresses in checkered prints, lace-inset long gowns and panels of pretty lace and of course a Valentino red gown that sashayed down the runway were impressive as ever.



Designer Hedi Slimane defined luxury in his reinvention of Saint Laurent and he is throwing his exuberant punk party on his runway. Black leather motorcycle jackets, leather leggings, lampshade mini-skirts with stiff crinolines, shredded stockings.,tight minidresses with metallic, one shoulder cuts. The undeniable commercial success of this rebranding deserves a very rock-and-roll, sexy and rough, sartorial rebellion. This was it.




Creative director Clare Waight Keller continues to keep her sartorial spirit in order. Long, military guard coats with slightly rounded shoulders, charming A-line babydoll dresses, covetable easy suits, and folky flower print dresses evoke the chic, boho ’70s vibe that is once again a star on the circuitous runway. Fringe decorated satchel bags and skinny ties made for the ultimate statement accessories in wearable and fashion savvy Chloe’s fall-winter 2015 presentation which went straight for the bohemian goddess direction.




It was written in the stars as signed off at Emilio Pucci with a final collection full of rock ‘n’ roll addled sexiness – an element that he had introduced in to the house. Peter Dundas’ signature OMG factor came strutting down his final collection. Sexy and sultry, with prints themed around celestial motifs, Emilio Pucci creative director Peter Dundas presented a graphic collection in this (unconfirmed yet) final outing for the brand. His unabashed sexiness reached for the sky.
