#PFW: Off-White AW17

Nobody knows how to create a collection juxtaposing high fashion elements with street style culture like Off-White does. Many fashion houses, although successful in doing so, do not execute it as effortlessly as Off-White does. 

The female power suit has returned with classic checkered pattern and a sharply tailored blazer. Yet it was anything but traditional. Trousers were straight-leg and skinny, featuring D-ring zips at the bottom and skirts were anything but formal with thigh-high split detail. 

Mesh was used to cover yet expose the mid-riff, something we also saw at Calvin Klein during New York Fashion Week. But rather than tucking the translucent material into bottoms, it was pulled over to reveal the structure and details of the garment. 

But there wasn’t just casual clothing at the show. A long couture-worthy satin dress appeared with a pair of trainers, one of the checkered blazers and a matching clutch. It sounds like it was thrown together awkwardly but it worked; elegance was redefined. A blue mini skirt was paired with metallic ankle boots but was given the Off-White finish with the addition of an ultra-long sleeved cropped hoody. 

This collection was the ultimate teacher of how to do high fashion street style. Thanks for the lesson, Off-White. Noted.

#PFW: Saint Laurent AW17

One of the most talked about shows of the month, Anthony Vaccarello dazzled spectators with his latest collection, proving those wrong who criticised last season as ‘safe’. 

What would Saint Laurent be without the coolest all black outfits? Whether it be mini skirts, dresses and a patent leather overload. But that wasn’t all. An electric blue V-plunge dress featuring shoulder pads appeared on the runway as well as a tobacco brown leather skirt which was virtually formed by two large ruffles. 

What was the show stopper though? If you haven’t seen them plastered over your Instagram feed, let me tell you about the diamond boots. These spectacular pair of shoes are completely covered in diamonté crystals, as though you’re walking in a wearable disco ball. 

Saint Laurent’s AW17 show is unmissable and Anthony Vaccarello appears unstoppable, and it’s only just getting started.

#PFW: Vera Wang

It was absolutely gutting to find out Vera Wang wouldn’t present her AW17 collection on the runway. However, when the editorial photography was posted, the disappointment faded away and it left me fantasising about strolling around an uninhabited Manor House in her designs. 

The clothing was as majestic as the scenery: short black dresses held much volume at the skirt and featured embroidered gold feathers and stars, tulle was used to create elegance in lightness and length to the longer gowns and thick patent leather ankle boots coordinated every outfit to achieve modern edge – the unique Vera Wang way.

Paris Fashion Week Day 3: Off-White

Black on black, red on red and white Off-White. The relaxed comfort of sport clothing has never looked so high fashion than at the Off-White SS17 collection. There is everything required for the fashionistas who receive street-style snaps: striped tracksuit bottoms that are matched with a blazer, logo-printed sleeveless knitted tanks paired with a black scrappy dress giving a feminine delicacy to the bold athletic influence and tuxedo dresses which juxtapose lengths to create a layered illusion. The ideal image offered by Off-White’s SS17 collection is giving the gift of wearing a dress whilst being casual and being able to pull it off whilst wearing a pair of trainers. Comfortable but bold luxury.

Paris Fashion Week Day 3: Balmain

The Balmain army consisting the most famous models of today and the A-list Kardashian clan had its ‘armour shed’ in the words of the creative director Olivier Rousteing, who has made the fashion house such a success. The materials used were light and the silhouette relaxed compared to the skin-tight and heavily embellished bodycon we are used to seeing. The colours reflected the stripped-down theme with tones of khaki and copper. Reptile skin belts wrapped around the waists of the softer Balmain dresses and as usual, gold dominates the accessories. The collection ultimately reflects the celebration of the success of the brand and the reign of Olivier Rousteing.

Paris Fashion Week Day 3: Paco Rabanne

Spring has sprung at Paco Rabanna SS17 with the ever so popular sports-luxe trend complimented with sequinned over layers and the shortest of tennis-style skirts. Team a mesh collared sleeveless top with a leather mini skirt. For bonus high fashion athleticism, complete with a hooded jacket. SS17’s Paco Rabanne collection is daring and masculine and simultaneously youthful and sexy.

Paris Fashion Week Day 2: Fenty x Puma

Rihanna’s collaboration with Puma is a high fashion extravaganza as sportswear meets luxury. The love affair between baggy tracksuit bottoms and blush pink satin displays rays of SS17 heat. Whether you’re a fan of pearls or diamonds are your best friend, pair them with the lingerie inspired clothing Fenty x Puma presents such as the cute brown play suit with lace trimming or the cropped mesh-panelled corset. I predict a sell-out.
