MY PARIS FASHION WEEK LOOKS

When attending Paris Fashion Week, donning any old outfit will simply not suffice. No showgoer would dare hastily put together an everyday ensemble before rushing out the door to watch a top designer’s runway show.

After proudly being a Paris Fashion Week ambassador for another year (a true honour, so thank you) I’ve learnt a few or so things about the fashion of the event. And no I don’t mean the exquisite creations designers debut at the shows but instead the other kind of fashion which makes the week so special – the street style.

The street style scenes at fashion weeks across the globe have exploded in recent years.

From New York to Milan, Copenhagen to Tokyo and just about every other fashionable locale on the planet, the looks show attendees wear have become an integral part of all fashion weeks.

The City of Lights is the undisputed fashion capital of the world (any challengers?) and hence fashionistas’ Paris Fashion Week looks tend to be in a league of their own.

In this post, I’m going to break down my looks from Paris Fashion Week which I wore to some of the season’s most anticipated runway shows.

YSL

What else does one wear to the YSL show set against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower other than a full YSL sleek and sexy black ensemble?
I opted for a plunging backless dress complete with a fuzzy mini tutu, paired with a classic YSL blazer and finished with a diamond choker necklace adorned with four-leaf clover details.

The contrast between the playful tutu design of the dress and the sharp blazer, a YSL staple, gave the full look a rebellious charm

The entire night was a dream and I have Anthony Vaccarello to thank.

DIOR

Dior is always one of my favourite shows to attend during PFW. To honour the house’s unique approach to suiting (the 1947 Bar Jacket, the 1961 Slim Look collection, need I go on?), I chose to wear an interesting suiting number of my own.

A striking checkered white and lime green pattern featured on a skirt, blazer and zip up crop top.

As the house’s first female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri has sparked a conversation and led us all to question what we as women really want from the clothes we wear. For me, this little suiting co-ord embodied my love of the house’s modern take on feminie opulence. Once I saw Grazia Chiuri’s collection, I quickly realised my outfit wasn’t the only covetable Dior suit at the event!

I finished my look with a beautiful Dior classic - none other than a white Lady Dior Bag.

And in the spirit of keeping things co-ordinated, I tied a lime green scarf around the bag’s handles.

LOUIS VUITTON

And ever since I laid eyes on the Fall/Winter 2021 offering and the Louis Vuitton x Fornasetti collaboration, I’ve wanted to wear the pieces to a show.

LV’s recent Spring/Summer 2022 runway event gave me that opportunity.

I wore a tunic style dress patterned repeatedly with LOUIS VUITTON in bold red letters on a white background.

Ancient Greek style sculptures are imprinted on top as a collage and the dress is finished with large fringed glittery tassels.

The look’s incorporation of classical artsy motifs is a nod to Louis Vuitton’s rich and storied history within the fashion world and is a beautiful example of the house’s success when it comes to artistic collaborations. On my feet, I wore the new Patti Wedge High Boots and completed the look with a vibrant yellow hued Capucines Bag.

VALENTINO

For my Maison Valentino look I sported a charming preppy look featuring not one but two of the house’s newest must-have accessories. The new Valentino Stud Sign Bag was over my shoulder and the chunky soled, rose embossed rubber boots from Valentino’s 03 Rose Edition range were on my feet both in the colour ivory.

Overall, the look incorporated two Valentino staples - studs and florals.

Both of these motifs have helped define the house’s punk elegance aesthetic so a look which perfectly combined each was a success in my book!

ISABEL MARRANT

I looked the embodiment of boho chic at the Isabel Marant Spring/Summer 2022 show. Pairing a long sleeved flowing midi dress with a loose fitting waistcoat, I was ready to run off and live in a boho dreamland – well not literally since I had a show to get to!

A dreamy pair of brown thigh high boots made the look Paris Fashion Week ready.

My ensemble is evidence of Marant’s ability to mix breezy bohemian vibes with high fashion flair and is no doubt what has allowed her brand to reach enviable levels of success in a short amount of time.
