Paris Fashion Week is soon coming to a close so we’re looking back on trend takeaways from the most memorable designer showcases! Without further ado, here are the top 6 trending styles on the runways of Off-White, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Balmain, Dior, Balenciaga and Givenchy:
Both Balmain and Dior made a return to the 15th century with medieval-inspired design choices! Garments resembling knights in shining armor with a contemporary charm made their way down the aisle.
Back to Black
A number of shows including Balenciaga, Givenchy, YSL, made strong color statements that were heavy on the black. Each designer did black in their own way for Fall/Winter 2022.
Check it Out
For Fall/Winter 2022 to 2023, you’ll want to trade in your flannel for your choice of tartan, gingham or checker print done in an elevated fashion! Off-White and Dior brought their checkers to the runway in maximalistic ways.
Futuristic Silhouettes and Tailoring
Designers like Olivier Roustieg at Balmain, Denma at Balenciaga and Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino are playing on the mix of baggy fits, sharp tailoring and round shapes. The end result is a futuristic silhouette made for today’s most avant-garde dressers.
Highs and Lows
When it comes to evening wear, we are here for the highs and the lows! Off-White, Christian Dior and Givenchy each made iterations of the high-low dress fit for the red carpet.
Another powerful color story that took fashion week by storm was Valentino’s Pink Parade. Pierpaolo Piccioli’s specific shade is now being added to Pantone as ‘PP Pink’! Designers Off-White and Balenciaga also incorporated pink into their collections this season.
