WHAT A WEEK.
normally I never talk much about fashion weeks, but this time I thought I would put in a bit of effort.
Anyway, this is what I saw and liked colourwise.
Firstly, it looks like print's not dead, with citrus graphics reminiscent of your grandmothers oilcloth table cloth appearing at Stella McCartney, at Rochas the textile had a vintage + Scandinavian feel and at Cacharel and Akris it was tropical, floral and abstract with some sweeeeet contrasting colours.
I also had a soft spot for the sweet-as-sugar pastels, nearly always in suit form. The palest pinks were sent down the runway at Stella McCartney and The Row by the Olsen Twins, as well as a more saturated pink at Cacharel. I especially loved the dip-dyed coats and Dries Van Noten, like those two-toned iceblocks I used to be able to buy from the school canteen as a primary school kid.
White and minimalism went hand in hand pretty much everywhere. Sharp white dresses at Akris, more flowing types at Chloé and perfectly paired looks at Celine, Dries Van Noten and Issey Miyake.
That being said, black also made it's appearance, mostly in sheer or tailored forms. I particularly liked Chloe's zips and studded belts, the innovative cuts at Hussein Chayalan, the pairing of a maxi skirt and a structured jacket at Hakaan and flowing sheer numbers at Rochas.
