My day three outfit has easily become my most Instagramed outfit ever this past week; baby blue seems to go perfectly with the gorgeous Paris backdrop. Living in London I haven’t been able to help but adding street-wear to my wardrobe. I think it’s important to have a mix of all elements of the fashion world in your wardrobe and to understand the different aesthetics. One of my major inspirations for ability to mix street-wear with high fashion is the blogging queen, Chiara Ferragni, as she’s not afraid to pair a Thrashers hoodie with a Berkin bag.
I decided to wear one of my favourite pieces from the Supreme Spring release, the satin baseball jersey in light blue. I wore the jersey as a dress with a black North Face zip-up fleece and black tights underneath. I was thankful for the Paris sunshine that day allowing me not to need a jacket. I finished the look off with a French beret.
For my second day of Paris Fashion and my first on schedule show I wore a completely vintage outfit and discovered my new favourite accessory, the beret. Though I may have been pushing into tourist, the beret is so much more fashionable than a toque or baseball hat in the Paris rain. Luckily only days before Dior unveiled their berets, so I was right on trend.
I couldn’t resist wearing my vintage Fendi trench coat to another fashion week. I wore a re-worked Champion tank-top-dress over top of a black turtleneck and fishnets. Lastly I wore my thigh-high flat black boots that were perfect for going up the Eifel Tower after the show.
I arrived to in Paris on Saturday and was able to hit the ground running with a show room presentation, a show, and an after party.
I decided to channel Parisian chic with an all black outfit to go from showrooms to the club. I wore a black top from Zara that looks simple but with sleeves that puff at the ends and stretchy fabric it can be such a statement piece. I wore the top with black Babaton slouchy pants, heeled boots, and one trend I didn’t think that I would every try, fishnets peeking out the top of pants.
Fishnets have been big ever since last spring when they appeared at fashion weeks and on celebrities. When people started wearing them popping over the top of jeans with crop tops it instantly became a trend, and I just didn’t think the sexy version of boxers and saggy jeans was for me.
However, I did decided to got for it with this look, even though I was a bit behind the bandwagon, I thought it worked and added something special to an all black outfit.
The Menswear Balanciga show was both a political statement and a sea of trend spotting.
There is no doubt that Demma Gvasalia understands young people and exactly what they want from high fashion. Even in a collection built overwhelmingly of suits it’s aesthetic was edgy and filled with sportswear influence.
So let’s count the trends that were made and reworked in the show.
Looking at the Vetements AW17 show you may be thinking that these aren’t young models these are just a mess of ordinary looking people of different ages. Who are these people? A police women? A broker? Oh wait, that one looks like me. And that was the glory in the Stereotypes show.
Yesterday Street-Wear kids and fashion critics alike were shook by the Louis Vuitton Paris fashion show showcasing the anticipated Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration.
The high fashion runway featured burst of classic Supreme red, on bags, shoes, and denim. There was a give and take from both brands; with classic Louis Vuitton trunks in bright red and more understated carry bag with simply glossy letters spelling Supreme.
