The Balmain Army rallies together once again to conquer Paris Fashion Week, descending on the very opulent Garnier’s Opera House. The inspiration for the show and the collection derived from Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing’s visit to the parisian ballet when he was younger! Rousteing says it’s a dream come true to design for the ballet and showcase his collection in such a historic, iconic location.

The collection itself is probably Balmain’s most fashion-forward yet, featuring a handful of see-through, clear PVC skirts, coats and booties. The designer has managed to make the looks simultaneously dressy and effortless, with power suits and form-fitting dresses adorned with sequins and fringy details. While this is a fresh new fashion-forward look for the fashion house, the collection does stay true to it’s signature ‘Balmain’ style. As always, the Balmain Army featured a heavenly host of supermodels. To walk for Balmain is a top privilege for any model so the only the best of the best walked down the runway. Below are some of the looks worn by the industry’s top models, Including a few comebacks from models Karolina Kurkova and Magdalena Frackowiak who have been absent from fashion weeks for quite some time.

He certainly didn’t fail to put smiles on people’s faces, especially with a surprise finale section of dresses that recast his models not as butch femmes and tough chicks, but as flowers.

Tom Ford SS/18

And just like that … it’s NEW YORK FASHION WEEK! We’re back baby! Tom Ford knows how to make an entrance. At his return to New York Fashion Week, the designer transformed the Park Avenue Armory into a luxurious space to showcase his glamorous, sharp, and sexy Spring 2018 collection. There was a star studded front row of celebrities and models among the likes of Kim Kardashian, Doutzen Kroes, Cindy Crawford, Gwendoline Christie, Naomi Campbell and Cardi B.

Binx Walton gave the all important first AND last impression … The American model got the top honour of both opening and closing Tom Ford’s show this season. At the start, she emerged to the tune of David Bowie’s “Fame” in a golden shorts-suit with a chain mail top and pink stilettos, and she closed the show in a languid gown with sequin sleeves.

The clear feel of the collection was return to glamour, meets the 90’s. Ford’s jackets were confident, expertly cut and paired with a plunge-front or backless jumpsuits. This season recaptured 90’s glam with the hip-flashing maillots he paired with low-slung pants. Cut-out jersey column dress and crystalized T-shirts stood out to me in the collection. There was day-wear and evening-wear, making it a very versatile collection. Check out some of the looks below!!

Karl’s collection showcased the skills of the Chanel ateliers and the amazing craftspeople behind these incredible collections. The feather-makers, the embroiderers, the boot makers, the pleaters. All whose work brings Karl’s imagination and expressionist sketches to life.

Thick tweeds and a mostly dark palette; controlled compositions of feathers adorning sleeves and hems. Every look was topped off with a boater hat. Karl Lagerfeld is bringing the early 20th century hat back. The accessory was presented in a variety of tweeds, satin and leather.

Every model’s look featured an over-the-top rainbow eyeshadow, a bright and welcome contrast to the dark-hued collection. Which tied in nicely with the darker bold colour of the garments.

At the end of the show, Karl Lagerfeld received the highest honour of Paris. The city’s mayor Anne Hidalgo presented the designer with a Grand Vermeil medal, the highest distinction the city offers, for his work in the French capital.
