An unprecedented second digital fashion week is almost over – but not before the French capital closes it down
resistance pieces on the runway. Over the next eight days, the biggest up-and-coming brands and homes will be appearing at Paris Fashion Week. Louis Vuitton, Ottolinger, Rick Owens, Marine Serre, and Thebe Magugu are just a handful of labels that will be appearing virtually. Plus, Gabriela Hearst makes his highly anticipated debut at Chloé as creative director. Below, take a look W the editor’s favorite appearance of the season.
DISPLAY: Gabriela Hearst’s first collection in Chloé is a combination of the neutral colors we expect and the love of the French fashion house paired with a sleek, sleek silhouette. Hearst made names for his eponymous brand. The newcomer himself even closed the show in one of the collection’s many patterned skirts.
INSPIRATION: Sustainability and philanthropy.
DISPLAY: Slips and shirtdresses, with a few carefully tailored suits are incorporated into the mix.
DISPLAY: Count on Vaquera to expand your fashion horizons every season with its unique textures and proportions; these elongated arms are hard to miss.
INSPIRATION: Performance on stage.
DISPLAY: Kwaidan Editions’ patent leather trenches and skirts are definite knobs.
INSPIRATION: The brand continues to add volume to their chic, minimalist 90s style.
DISPLAY: Volume, bow blouses, and feathers, oh my!
INSPIRATION: Patou continues with the brand’s signature fun this season.
DISPLAY: In addition to the Marine Serre half-moon print (for which the brand is well known and their entire fall 2021 offering,) the newest collection plays with lots of patterns including plaid and paisley. There are also face masks to match over many looks – just right, as we kick off another Covid-focused collection season.
INSPIRATION: Monotonous everyday life.
DISPLAY: A twist on the 1970s, with a focus on textiles.
INSPIRATION: Thebe Magugu is working with traditional healers to create her fall collection, entitled “The Alchemy”, which is launched as a digital presentation during Paris Fashion Week.
