#1: Crowning Glory
Nicolas Ghesquiere did it Wonderwoman style. Hedi Slimane stuck to a Courtney Love-era tiara. And Miuccia Prada did delicate crystal crowns for her Harajuku Goth princesses. When these three are in on the look, you know the tiara is bound to be a must-have next season.
#2: Garden Variety
Thanks to Dior’s whopper of a flower-clad hill for its show venue, we all now know a delphinium is. Or what 300,000 of them looks like. Then there was Moncler Gamme Rouge’s field of daisies that became the runway. See? We told you flowers are in vogue (check out our October issue for the story).
#3: Chanel’s Trolley Dollies
We all know what you think when you saw these quilted babies: Carry-on only. For those who want something more kitschy cool, consider the trolley handbags that came down the runway.
#4: That New Guy at Balenciaga
From being Paris’ cult designer that counts fans like Rihanna, Demna Gvasalia of Vetements became the hottest name on everyone’s lips and social media thanks to his appointment at Balenciaga, and we think he is to Balenciaga what Alessandro Michele is to Gucci.
Balenciaga is pleased to announce the appointment of Demna Gvasalia as the new Artistic Director of the Balenciaga Collections. Demna Gvasalia will take creative responsibility for the brand’s collections and the image of the maison. He will present his first collection for the brand at the women’s ready-to-wear autumn/winter 2016-17 show in Paris. Portrait by Willy Vanderperre. #Balenciaga #Welcome
#5: The Zendaya Bandwagon
For a celebrity who counts this season as her first Paris Fashion Week, singer-actress-dancer Zendaya gets an A+ for her front row appearances. At least 10 outfit changes in 72 hours – now that’s commitment.
#6: The Mashed-Up Hairdo
Corn rows + dreadlocks = The new evening (not hippy) ‘do at Valentino.
#7: Holy Shard!
Embellishments are going to be big next season. For something edgier, enter Loewe and Maison Martin Margiela whose clothes are adorned with broken glass.
