Top 5 most notable shows from Paris Fashion Week

With Paris Fashion Week reaching an end, we’re looking back at some of its best moments:

Chanel FW2014 collection.

Clearly the most buzzed about show was Chanel on Tuesday. The setting for the show was a supermarket, complete with dozens of custom made Chanel groceries. Check out Garance Dore‘s post on the topic to get some insights.

Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the brand once again, putting its trademark tweed on unexpected pieces, such as sunglasses or sneakers. Speaking of which, sneakers were turned into boots. The precious Chanel bags were wrapped in plastic or inspired by shopping baskets, while the models had absolutely crazy hair, with lots of accessories and dreads. Rihanna, Melanie Griffith, Clemence Poesy, Marianne Faithful and Keira Knightly were some of the most prominent celebrities to have graced the front row, most of them wearing Chanel.

It was the first collection for Louis Vuitton without Marc Jacobs, and it looks like Nicolas Ghesquiere did a great job on his own. His first collection for the prestigious fashion label was inspired by the 1960s, westerns and sportswear, in an eclectic but interesting mix. The sunglasses on the catwalk were sporty, made of acetate, and colorful, and we can really imagine them on street style blogs as soon as they hit the stores. Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chloe Sevigny, Kate Mara and more were present at the show.

Valentino FW2014.

The fall collection of Valentino was impressive, as one would expect from the label. A mix of delicate bird and butterfly embroidered pieces, with faux fur, prints and bold colors were all spotted on the runway. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli encompassed the brand’s aesthetics flawlessly, with a modern touch. The interesting sunglasses are based on aviator shape, but they’re descending and sort of triangular. The front row was a mix of street style darlings, such as Miroslava Duma, Anna Dello Russo and Olivia Palermo, but also Valentino Garavani.

Christian Dior FW2014.

Christian Dior mixed feminine with edgy on the runway, and it’s looking good. There were pastels as well as bright, primary colors, and color blocking. The sunglasses we spotted were rimless, with a single metallic upper rim towards the upper part – a minimal and unusual style. Asymmetrical hemlines, sheer fabrics and sculptural shoes were also part of the show, which was attended by famous faces such as Eva Herzigova, Jessica Alba, Rihanna and Emma Roberts.

Chloe FW2014.

Another spectacular show was put on by Chloe. The usual minimalism of the brand was a bit changed, with metallic embellishments and colorful prints. But there were still plenty of covetable coats and pieces of jewelry. Beauty-wise, the models looked natural, but with lilac eyeshadow that made their eyes pop. The girls from Haim were present at the show, as well as Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, Miroslava Duma and Olivia Palermo.

Look of the week: Selena Gomez in mirror sunglasses & denim cutoffs

Get the look: Selena Gomez

 

Selena Gomez was spotted once again at her favorite restaurant in Los Angeles, Little Cafe. The singer/actress wore a very casual outfit that’s perfect for spring, including denim cutoffs, an oversized top with an open back from Free People and a loop scarf from the same brand. The brunette also wore her favorite Frye Jenny backpack in black, brown buckle ankle boots, a cuff bracelet and a pair of aviator sunglasses with trendy mirror lenses. She looked boho-chic and very relaxed on the February afternoon, just a quick reminder of why we like her style so much.

Selena Gomez has spent Valentine’s Day with girlfriends, as spotted on her Instagram account, but her date with Niall Horan did not go unnoticed. Apparently, her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, is so jealous, that he didn’t invite her to his 20th birthday party on March 1st. What do you think, does Justin have the right to still be so possessive?

Men's fashion

For men’s eyewear, we noticed that sunglasses are becoming small and chic rather than oversized and opulent. The only details they may have is a metallic brow on an acetate frame. The shapes are classic – square or round – and so are the colors. Timeless is the word to best describe what men are wearing at Fashion Week this season.

Since it’s Fashion Week after all, you see interesting outfits wherever you look. Some people are into statement accessories – such as shield-like eyewear, and they bring it into the streets like it’s nobody’s business. Honestly, we’d rather keep this look on the runway and in Daft Punk posters, but you have to credit this girl for being so bold.

Another timeless trend we noticed are tortoiseshell sunglasses. Whether they’re round combined with a metallic brow, or oversized cat eyes, tortoiseshell frames flatter any skin tone and are easy to match with everyday looks. The girl in the second picture is wearing Prada PR29 PS sunglasses ($282).

Clear sunglasses are also having a moment. The acetate frames made of transparent plastic are as cool as it gets, and this particular model is even better with the golden arms. The angular shape is retro inspired, but as fashionable as can be.

Olivia Palermo at London Fashion Week

Olivia Palermo is a woman of many looks, but we love the rather rough outfit she put on for a show in London. The starlet paired her Alexander Wang leather skirt with stilettos, a leather jacket and mirror lens sunglasses, which is edgier than what we’re used to seeing her in. Our verdict: well played.

Sometimes classic is best: small, angular sunglasses in neutral colors go with everything and they don’t stand out. This first woman pictured is wearing Tom Ford sunglasses with a red lip, while blogger and model Hanneli Mustaparta let her outfit shine by wearing plain black sunnies.
