Paris Fashion Week ended on October 3, 2023. Now we can say that we’ve seen it all. Which means we can revisit the brightest moments from all the SS24 collections. Keep scrolling!
Burberry took over London!
The show was the second one curated by creative director Daniel Lee, and everyone was expecting him to show his full potential and the ways he was going to refresh the English brand. The show marketing campaign was mind-blowing. For example, Burberry renamed a subway station and took over the legendary Norman’s cafe that serves fancy English breakfasts.
On the runway, we saw tailored suits inspired by the legendary Savile Row tailors, deep necklines, and a light-reflecting version of the classic Burberry trench coat.
Jonathan Anderson kept experimenting with shapes and showed us garments that looked as if they were made of plasticine. Now everyone’s wondering what they were really made of.
Accent decorations caught our eye. For example, live flowers showing from underneath translucent garment layers in Simone Rocha’s collection, or feathers underneath latex at the 16 Arlington show.
Models walked the MOWALOLA runway in London wearing makeup that resembled realistic bruises, cuts, and scars. Even Irina Shayk wore black eye makeup. The brand was accused of romanticizing abuse and injuries, however, the designer claimed she was inspired by the “Crash” movie directed by David Cronenberg.
Walter Chiapponi dedicated the collection to his nephew Noah, who passed away in April of this year. The show was Walter Chiapponi’s last bow at TOD’s – he’s departing from the brand after four years of excellent work to cope with the grief and focus on himself.
The new Fendi Flip bag shown in Milan has every chance to become an it-bag. This is a transformer bag – the clutch can be easily turned into a shopper bag.
Versace had a star-studded show. The collection was inspired by Gianni Versace’s 1995 archives and presented by the most famous models: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Mica Argañaraz, and Adut Akech. Claudia Schiffer closed the show.
Glenn Martens, the creative director of Diesel, threw a real festival that started 4 hours before the show. Pouring rain added to the rave atmosphere of the event and actually matched the collection concept: the majority of dresses and jeans looked like they were soaking wet.
To celebrate the 40-year anniversary of the brand, the collection was entrusted to four famous stylists –Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, Lucia Liu, and Katie Grand. They drew inspiration from the Franco Moschino archives.
The fashion weeks are over! There were extravagant and weird pieces, as always, but the point is to look for new trend seeds and grow them in the streets around the world. Get inspired by the art!
