#HausOfPaulSmith’s interpretation of Fall Winter

Every fashion week just seems to get more interesting for Sir Paul Smith, this fall winter glances back to an early catwalk show he held in Paris’s Andrée Putman gallery which saw an innovative use of colorful tailoring set against an austere concrete backdrop. Now presenting a confident and contemporary reinterpretation; tonal suits have an updated feel with exaggerated shoulders and high waists but are consistently wearable.

Reminiscent of a ‘70s silhouette, familiar shapes are reenergised; wide shoulders, peak lapels and high breaks in suit jackets are matched by cinched waists on trousers and either slight flares or cropped legs. In all instances tailoring is functional with a distinctive silhouette to complement.

Full-length sheepskin coats bring the warmth that a cosmopolitan customer requires but remaining respectful of the principles that have kept Paul Smith stable for forty years. Occasionally the sheepskin is used as a detail on shoes and bags to update everyday utilitarian styles. Elsewhere loafers, straight shoes and desert boots have added modernity with exaggerated soles and clean lines.

Definitely a warm and Luxurious interpretation of Fall Winter from #HausOfPaulSmith – don’t you think?

Paris Fashion Week SS’15: Fun With Fashion v/s Ramp To Racks

The spotlight most recently was the gorgeous French Capital and one of my favourite cities in the world, Paris.

If there’s one thing we saw for the SS’15 presentation, it’s that designers seem to want to have some fun on the ramp.While some choose to go traditional!

Here’s a look at some of the shows that stood out for me!

Fun With Fashion: 

Jean Paul Gaultier

Now if you want to learn how to put the fun in fashion, who better than Jean Paul Gaultier to learn a few thing from?

It was most definitely a heavy hearted moment, as the mastermind staged his last prêt-à-porter show, which expressed a goodbye. On a brighter side, Gaultier’s notorious sense of humor was perfectly depicted all throughout the runway.

Ramp to Rack:

Stella McCartney

It was a splendid show put up by the British Designer this morning. A collection I would define as Ramp to Racks for sure, The collection boasted of beautify soft colours which transcended into darker shades gradually. We also saw the incorporation of bold cuts and shapes on the runway.

Comme des Garçons 

As per her yearly routine, the presentation for her secondary line, Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons was presented after the Comme des Garçons show. This understated presentation in comfortable cotton was not only a contrast to her previous show, but also a reminder that the designer can still push herself on a less grand scale. Credible indeed!

Maxime Simoëns

What I loved and found to be more my style was what Maxime Simoëns had to offer! Clothes Influenced from the 1960s and ’80s which could be detected in silhouettes and detailing alike!

Abstracts and prints colour blocked to go from ramp to racks. Now that’s what I like in a show.
