Few events inspire the anticipation and fun associated with Paris Fashion Week. As an annual happening that brings the world the best and latest from a number of top designers, followers of women’s fashion will make it a point to be there or at least follow along online. While only time will tell what wonders will be revealed as this year’s lines from each designer are presented, there are already some indications of what to expect.
Fringe Lovers Unite
There will definitely be fringe found in several lines. One that has caught the eye of fashion fans already is found in the line designed by Balmain. Using earth tones, the breezy feel of the fringe is a world apart from the fringed tops and gowns that were so prominent in decades like the Sixties and the Nineties. The graceful lines, off the shoulder necklines, and the fringe come together to create a look that is completely contemporary, elegant, and also a lot of fun.
Many designers are also presenting designs that include the use of knee-high boots. While these were not exactly the darlings of the fashion world for a few years, the offerings at this Fashion Week should restore the demand for them. Several of Rick Owen’s designs feature these boots, and more than one offering from Balmain also includes this type of accessory.
Black is Once Again the New Black
Most NYC models know that having a little black dress in the closet is a must. It can be dressed up or down for just about any occasion. While black has never completely been away from Fashion Week, it’s making a strong comeback this year. No one does it better than traditional designers like Chanel and Christian Dior, but don’t overlook the contributions of Alexis Mabille and others who bring a fresh and new approach to combining black with other elements to create designs ideal for everything from a formal dinner to an evening out with friends.
Accessories Are Out in Force
Anyone who thought that hats and other types of headwear were passe is in for a surprise. Throughout the week, there will be designs on hand that prove it’s possible to create a unified look from head to toe. While some of the designs may startle more traditional tastes, others will revel in the inspirations behind some of the designs.
There will also be interesting options for handbags, clutches, and jewelry to accent the designs. Trusted names like Louis Vuitton will definitely have a say in what works and what doesn’t this season. Plan on some surprises from other designers that could make you rethink your sense of fashion.
You can bet that modelling agency owners, models, and others who are interested on being in the forefront of the fashion scene will be watching each of the scheduled for the week. With something for every occasion, the designs and their creators are ready to ensure women have the chance to make a fashion statement that will not soon be forgotten.
