Nina Ricci

Concept:

Nina Ricci’s latest AW17 collection showed subtle influences from the wild west by the use of silk fringing and collars with metal tips. It’s this fusion of chic and cowgirl that makes this collection so successful. Models strutting down the runway with saddle bags and elements of masculine tailoring adds a sense of order.

CHANEL

Concept:

Following on from the spectacular SS17 show, Chanel have carried on the futuristic theme into this season. Again, adding a contemporary twist to the classic tweed suits, coats and boots. Space age mixed with old fashion Sixties. The grandeur of the show was not only embedded in the beautiful location but by the brand launching a rocket inside of the Grand Palais. Of course, huge names walking the show included Gigi Hadid, Lucky Blue Smith and Bella Hadid. Front row names included Cara Delevinge and Lily Rose Depp

 

Ellery

Concept:

 A brand that I truly love, Ellery’s latest collection was all about the shapes and voluptuous clothes. Well known for their flare trousers, it felt as if the collection had a new vibe to it. With shoulder poufs and emphasis on sleeves. Definitely, Kym Ellery included a huge variety of colours and textures from shiny to latex to prints. Ellery redefines the modern woman in a artistic, french, chic sort of way.

Chloe

Concept:

 After six years of being the best designer at Chloe, Clare Waight Keller’s final collection was inspired by dolls and girliness. This is represented by thigh high hems, fabrics and velvet. Oddly the collection felt doll like and sporty at the same time.  Tracksuits, juxtaposed the girliness. School girl with a mixture of bad ass rebel somehow works really well.

 

Acne Studio's

Concept:  

A collection that was brought alive with its details. From funky shaped sunglasses to artistic earrings and bags with charms. It had a artsy, chic vibe to it. One of my favourite collections of PFW
