From Paris With Love

It's Paris,

not much else needed to say.
One of the biggest Fashion Weeks in the world, the biggest and the best fashion houses on the planet.

Highlights below - scroll that mouse downward baby.

In alphabetical order, just to keep things fair.

acne studios


Maybe many of the models could've used a top under their plunging 70's inspired necklines. But then again, maybe not.
With pops of colour, Acne's signature androgynous shapes and clean lines there was a lot to like about this collection, especially Jonny Johansson's glorious teal, towel mini dress (see here) - the ultimate piss-take on the fashion community... we hope.

anthony vacarello


Those diagonally sliced mini skirts - on. point.
There were unmistakable naval themes throughout twisted off with a rock n' roll edge and his signature anything but subtle, steamy, sensual style. Legs get one thing straight though, want to pull of this look? You'll need to have killer pins.

balmain


Apparently inspired by one popular Insta pic taken by Rihanna at last years Balmain after party, this collection was all about sheer and sexy.
From racy cut-outs to soft sheer fabrics and shiny plastic panels this collection was all about the skin.

chloé


Perfectly traversing the tightrope of boho-chic, Clare Waight Keller got this collection - which easily could've been oh-so-wrong - nothing but right.
Those gladiator sandals, tied all the way to the knee, brought a sexy-cool edge to even the prettiest of prairie dresses and the washed denim workwear component balanced the runway perfectly whenever airy-fairy threatened to become too much.

ellery


How could we not include Perth's very own Kym Ellery? 
Gorgeous tailoring with sumptuous fabrics and Ellery's signature sculptural silhouettes (try saying that three times fast) made a perfect trio.
 And pants for eveningwear? 
Ellery I LOVE you.

haider ackermann


After a few mildly disappointing seasons on the runway I've got to say, this collection really clicked.
Great play with belts upon belts to cinch in those languid lines and softly draped fabrics and absolutely everything looked easy wear whilst maintaining the epitome of chic style.
This softer, lighter collection should prove to be a breathe of fresh air for the label.

isabel marant


The queen of casual-cool in my eyes Marant can rarely put a foot wrong, and this collection proves no exception.
Beautiful clothes you could easily take from the office, out to lunch and then a night out almost anywhere with a subtle tribal twist using raffia, rope and rustic earthy tones.
And I'm never a huge fan of flats, a strong believer that every girls legs are 100% improved with a pair of killer heels to finish them off - but god do I want a pair (or three) of those über-cool sandals.

john galliano


Green, it's unequivocally the best colour in the world - in my opinion anyway. So how could Bill Gaytten's collection for Galliano not make an appearance? 
Iridescent plastic leaves, vibrant maxi pleats and faux-gorilla jackets all paired back with kick-ass wooden clogs.
I'm not quite sure that there's an overwhelming clientele for these types of clothes, but hey if Gaytten's looking to give any away my hand is well and truly in the air.

kenzo


When ever would Kenzo not be on this list?
Never. Thats when.
Skate culture meets Japan cool, creating a modern vibe with innovative use of laser cut skirts, rubberised detailing and futuristic eyewear.

manish arora


I make no secret of my adoration of everything shiny, iridescent and/or sparkly - here begins my love affair with Manish Arora.
No embellishment is too much, no neon too bright and no hat (or shoe) too crazy - it's loud and proud and everything I most love about fashion.
Maybe you wouldn't wear that entire outfit down the street (even if I would) but there are nuggets of gold in this collection that almost anyone could work into their wardrobe.

sonia rykiel


Julie de Libran's first collection for the fashion house brings exciting prospects for the future. The collection included the label's signature stripes with a contemporary tone Libran's looks are playful and feminine - it was all about the legs on this runway.
The force is strong with this one.


yang li


A designer of avant-garde aesthetics, deconstructed styles and perfect imperfections Li's collection for Spring 2015 was decidedly romantic.
Thin gauzy layers worn over boxy, poetic slogan tees paired with soft, floor-sweeping skirts - it sounds like a total culture clash destined for disaster. 
But Li makes it work, as if it were always meant to be that way.


Yep, and that's it.
