Paris Fashion Week Highlights – Spring 2018

I went into fashion month this time around feeling very disillusioned by it all. I was bored of the Instagram antics. I was sick of seeing all of the parties being discussed instead of the actual clothing. I was just over it, in general. Then something changed. Maybe the parties in the other cities aren’t as intense, maybe I just don’t follow the right people online. Regardless of the outcome, I feel that as fashion month progressed we did actually hear more about the clothes (and there have been quite a few really great shows this season too). Paris is the end of it all, the grand finale.

A very shiny coat from Kenzo.
Jacquemus is one of my favorite shows of fashion month. The next few looks are from him also.
None of this collection was entirely new. You could already get these clothes, or at least things very similar elsewhere, but for some reason, perhaps the styling, I just got a certain mood that I don’t get when I see similar styles elsewhere and it just charmed me.
I love the colors.
The drape of this top reminded me of a great dress that I wore on vacation last month.
Always here for a headscarf. Also, I love the liberal use of blush in this show. It makes me wish I had a tan so a little rouge on the cheeks would look glamorous instead of flustered on me.
A polka dot sarong is what we all need on vacation really.
This outfit feels very Yves, at Saint Laurent.
The boots! The romper! Yay! at Saint Laurent
This leather jacket is so awesome… c/o Saint Laurent.
I really like this entire look at Olivier Theyskens.
Very sexy at Theyskens.
Logomania at Lanvin?
Virgil Abloh’s best collection yet, in my opinion, at Off-White
I say yes to the dress (and one of my all time favorite models, Bianca Balti) at Off-White
I looooooove this entire look!! Very unexpected for Off-White.
Sophisticated tailoring at Off-White.
I love how the print of both the skirt and the boots is like an abstract floral, almost snakeskin. It looks super cool. This is from Chloé.
I am adoring everything that Julien Dossena does at Paco Rabanne. This dress is amazing. It’s paisley and chainmail all in one, with a cute and flirty silhouette. Yes!
More from Paco Rabanne. The asymmetry is cool and I am trying to work out if this is a dress or a long top over a skirt? Either way, I like the finished look.
Cute slogan shirt, sexy skirt, and a great boot. I feel like this is a modern woman’s uniform c/o Paco Rabanne.
This is the look of a Bond girl from the 1970s. She is the pretty sidekick who is a slight damsel in distress but still smart. Think Dr Goodhead from Moonraker. I love it. (Still Paco Rabbane.)
Balmain is entirely formulaic at this point but there’s always a couple of good looks per season. In this case, I like this dress on Bianca Balti.
I love the twist details on this crop top at Haider Ackermann.
This struck me as sexy Prada at Mugler.
Altuzarra was sorely missed in New York but really it was worth the wait in Paris.
You know the saying “she looks like a million dollars”? Well, in this case you can look like one-hundred thousand euros c/o Balenciaga.
Bill Gaytten is often overlooked at John Galliano, despite being his right-hand man for years. This dress would look fantastic on Angelina Jolie.
I liked Clare Waight Keller’s debut collection at Givenchy. It didn’t scream out Givenchy to me (perhaps because I am so used to Riccardo Tisci’s work that I am forgetting what else the house has ever looked like).
I like the combination of the various prints that were all so similar yet different, at Givenchy.
So gorgeous and romantic c/o Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. The hair here was very similar to the Vivienne Westwood show too.
This was a super cute dress from Nicolas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton. The Louis Vuitton show has lost so much of its buzz nowadays which is rather sad.
