J’adore: Trends from Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018

Bonjour mes amis, Paris Fashion Week for Spring 2018 is upon us and I am so excited by what I’ve seen on the runway so far! There is a clear trend for me, I am loving the modern takes on more classic styles, where traditional textures, prints and accessories are renewed with fresh allure. Here are my favourite trends coming out of Paris this week:

Lace

I love the feminine lace pieces popping up on the runways of Paris, accentuated by the beautiful, bright and blooming tones of spring. It’s so refreshing to see Dolce & Gabbana pair a more traditional, neutral silk lace with modern pops of colour. The small accents of reds and fuchsia in the floral headpiece, handbag and shoes tie the outfit together in a classic yet edgy way.

Berets

The unofficial national French accessory has had a makeover in the Christian Dior show. Most outfits from the Dior ready-to-wear line were accentuated with a très chic beret with a veil, giving a subtle edge to a traditional French staple.

Floral

I know, the old Devil Wears Prada cliché of “Floral? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” but floral is timeless for a reason, honey! Dolce & Gabbana upped the ante this year paring beautiful floral prints with bold colours, fresh tailoring and decadent accessories.

Soft Sequins

Soft, feminine, and flowing aren’t usually words I would associate with sequins, but Bottega Veneta has added paillettes to a number of toned down ensembles that have given sequins new life. I love this low-key, fab look that can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion!
