Now that the dust has settled on Paris Fashion Week, let us look back on the collections that gave us a lot to talk about.
One of the most breathtaking shows of the season was Dries Van Noten’s. For the spring 2020 season he has partnered with Christian Lacroix, who was the king of 80’s fashion. With a tandem made of designers who are not afraid of colours and prints, the collection was exuberant, joyful and loaded with fanciful ideas. More info
There were the poufs and feathers we’ve come to associate with Lacroix, however, these were tempered with Van Noten’s hand. Sweatshirts were paired with ruffled trousers and silk skirts, tank tops were worn with beribboned tailored pants. There was a shocking pink opera-style coat worn on top of gold shorts. And as a finale, a bride in a white tank and jeans under a gauzy dress with sprays of asymmetric ruffles and feathers.
