Fashion News: Paris Fashion Week Recap

When it comes to style, no one does it better than the French. I feel like they have these genes inside of them that make them look cool wearing pretty much anything. Whether it's pretty or punk, we know we can count on the French to deliver. Here’s a recap of some of the major labels from Paris Fashion Week.

Isabel Marant

This French designer has done nothing but create trends and design staple pieces, to say the least. She started the wedge sneaker trend, which was followed by many other designer and retail labels.

This season she managed to mix edgy and sweet into her collection. Black leather and blazers were combined with soft floral patterns and ruffled hems. Black Mary-Janes became the accessory of the outfit, with an Isabel Marant twist of course. Speaking of Isabel Marant, who’s ready for her collaboration with H&M to come out? I know I am.

Saint Laurent

Hedi Slimane had a tough year dealing with critics. From the name change to the grunge-themed collection, things weren’t looking very positive.

This year, he took a different path from grunge while still keeping the youthful look. This was shown through the short skirts that dominantly pranced through the runway. The color theme was mostly black with a couple of bright colors such as green and pink.


While Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent showed an edgier side of French fashion, you can always count on Chanel to bring a whimsical show. Color blocking and pattern playing was present in the collection. The boxy silhouettes gave the collection a more masculine look, besides the fact that the colors used were mostly very feminine.

Let's not forget to mention Cara Delevingne and Lindsey Wixson opened and closed the show ... now that’s just icing on the cake.
