PFW fashion and beauty report AW 18

From Chanel’s forested runway to Miu Miu’s all-star cast. We round up the best of Paris Fashion Week AW 18.

Make a statement.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Unified drama. Sleek back buns pared with a bare face or a bold red lip.

ALTUZARRA
Those smoky eyes came as no surprise. Whether in kohl, blue or green, the eyes made a sultry statement.

BALENCIAGA
High fashion snow gear with multiple layers of colour and plaid.

Walking a fine line.

CARVEN
Sharp khol liner accented the eyes for an otherwise fresh beauty look this season.

CHANEL
The Grand Palais transformed into an Autumnal forest wonderland, Chanel tweed a given.

CHLOÉ
Vintage 70s fashion girls. The second collection under Creative Director Natacha Ramsay-Levi.

The devil’s in the details.

CHRISTIAN DIOR
D-ring belts, oversized tinted shades and patchwork a plenty.

DRIES VAN NOTEN
Those signature luxurious prints matched with layer upon texture.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
People stared at the makeup on [her] face. Lady stardust.

Day to night right.

GIVENCHY
Spider lashes and silky locks. It’s the simple touches.

HAIDER ACKERMANN
Punk never dies. Candy coloured mullets were the look du jour at Haider Ackermann.

HERMÈS
A darker, moodier runway set the scene for Hermès AW 18. Soft leathers, coloured boots and belted waists.

It’s only natural.

ISABEL MARANT
The Marant woman is nothing but consistent. Fresh faced with a hint of blush and hair so healthy we want their secrets.

JACQUEMUS
A light-weight winter. Fine knits, clever draping and a selection of long-sleeve dresses we’re ready to live in.

LANVIN
Bare-faced, with just a touch of gloss of the lips and lids.

DIY attitude.

LOEWE
Playful cut-outs, leather pockets and collars and assorted layered materials. Take your pick.

LOUIS VUITTON
Into the outer for Louis Vuitton AW 18. Multi-coloured corsets, skirt suits and tactical layers.

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
Neon lips and glitter skull caps. If we learnt anything from Margiela it’s that self-expression is key.

Back to you.

MIU MIU
With an all star runway cast including Elle Fanning, Miu Miu AW 18 was a time machine back to the 50s and 60s.

NINA RICCI
A feminine touch. The lightest dusting of peach around the eyes is enough.

OFF–WHITE
Matrix girls and two-piece suits. The new cool.

From day to night.

ROCHAS
Colour pop snakeskin boots, metallic coats and evening dresses.

SACAI
A patchwork and infusion of multiple layers and garments in one.

SAINT LAURENT
A mostly black palette with pops of bright floral and not-so-winter-warmers. Shorter than ever hemlines, 80s club dresses and leather shorts and boots. Paris in the night.

The new essentials.

STELLA MCCARTNEY
Lace overlay dresses, warm knitwear and comfort sneakers.

VALENTINO
The scarves have it. Blushed cheeks and honeyed lids with hair wrapped in silk. Valentino gave us polished femininity for AW 18.
