Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 18/19 #PFW

From the 26th February to the 6th March 2018 Paris Fashion Week took place. I was very lucky to help five unbelievable fashion shows: Saint Laurent, Elie Saab, Hermès, Giambattista Valli, and finally Chanel.

I will share my favourite looks from the different designers, and also my own looks for the shows.

  • Saint Laurent, Tuesday the 27th February at 8pm :

Being a biiiiiiiiiiiig fan of this brand, I was super excited by the idea of helping this show. Saint Laurent is rock, powerful, sexy…. Basically, a confident look in every situation.

My look :

Obviously, I’m wearing Saint Laurent, a long velour dress with shoulder pads with a shiny side split, and velour Niki boots. To add a touch of colour, I’ve accessorised with a fuchsia clutch bag by the brand M2Malletier. A single earring, on just one side for a rock look, which is made of diamonds on a curved bar from Djula and a panther Cartier ring in white gold.

The show :

At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, you will find the fountains of Trocadero – you couldn’t be more Parisian. A €400,000 structure has been built for the 10-15 minute show. Yes, it’s crazy, but it’s YSL. Inside there is a sombre atmosphere, mysterious. A bit of smoke, off we go…..

My top 10 looks :

Anthony Vaccarello was inspired by the collection “The Russian Peasants of 1976”. The show is divided into two parts – the first is very dark (which is emblematic of Saint Laurent), lots of leather, velour, boots, etc….. and the second is very flowery and colourful with embroidery and sequins. Here are my favourite looks :

  • Elie Saab, Saturday the 3rd March at 3pm :

My look :

A completely white look, I find it so elegant, even more so in the winter when everyone is wearing black. Elie Saab is a very dressy and feminine brand, which is why I chose this look. A Max Mara coat, sunglasses from Illesteva, belt from Isabel Marant, tights from Wolford and ankle boots from Kurt Geiger.

My top 10 looks :

The brand is always very elegant, glamourous and refined, but also has a slight rock edge which is very noticeable. The dresses are very transparent (I love that!), shiny, with embroidery, feathers and unbelievable boots (glittery, thigh-highs). I’ll let you be the judge!

  • Hermès, Saturday 3rd March at 6pm :

As soon as the Elie Saab show has finished, I’m running to change for the Hermès show. I really love this brand, which, in my opinion, is a synonym of elite, quality and timeless.

The show :

In a location which is as surprising as it is out of the ordinary, the Victor Duruy High School, the show took place in their big garden at sunset. Transformed into an urban jungle, the red-orange lights reflecting on the trees, the ground is made of a red gravel; a modern, dark and sensual atmosphere.

My look :

I was mainly wearing Hermès pieces – trousers, a clutch and an earring. The ankle boots are by Balenciaga, the jacket and shirt by Saint Laurent and the fur scarf by Sonia Rykiel.

My top 10 looks :

As always, exceptional leathers cut perfectly, the mix of colours were particularly successful yet unusual, and high-waisted skirts for powerful and determined women. In short, I love it, I love it, I love it!

  • Giambattista Valli,  Monday 5th March at 1.30pm :

The show :

It took place at the Palais de Tokyo – the interior with its industrial loft look contrasted with the fashionable and elegant spirit of the brand. The idea and the finish were put together very well.

My look :

The dress is by RedValentino, the belt Giambattista Valli, the boots Le Silla, the jacket Saint Laurent and the cap Ruslan Baginskiy. Lots of photos to see the look behind all the styles.

My top 10 looks :

The mix of styles for this collection, there is something for every mood: from the sexy woman with the short sequin dresses and patent leather thigh-high boots, to the bohemian woman with the long teddy bear coat and refined long white dress with sandal/slippers in curly wool. In the end, that’s fashion, choose your clothes according to your desires!

  • Chanel, Tuesday 6th March at 10.30am :

Last day of Paris Fashion Week and it is time for the most awaited show, like every season…. Chanel.

The show :

Once again, the brand has not broken the rules and has surprised everyone. Again, an unlikely staging, the Grand Palais has transformed the space into a forest, tonnes of dead leaves on the ground, moss-covered trees in the centre…

My look :

A Chanel dress with black and white sequins and a few embroidered pearls on the collar and sleeves (to die for!), Chanel bag, blue metallic leather boots by Kurt Geiger, sunglasses by Roberi and Fraud.

My top 10 looks :

Beautiful materials, thick materials (felt-like wools, tweeds), sparkling blacks, contrasts of textures… A beautiful winter collection with its natural tones, beiges and browns, but also metallic and bright leathers. A firm favourite were the fake furs which appeared to be the real thing, incredible!

And there we go, another Fashion Week is over. The next one is happening at the end of September and I already can’t wait to be there!!

Kiss, kiss fashionistas!
