PFW fashion and beauty report SS 18

Dreamy waterfalls, 80s flashbacks and an ode to Paris. We wrap up the best of PFW.

Find me on the island.

ACNE STUDIOS
Pastel colours and party shirts. A 70s daydream.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Underwater world. Locks cascading in front of smouldering eyes. Behind the veil.

ALTUZARRA
Pay attention. It was all in the details: curled lashes and the softest of shadows.

Working women.

CÉLINE
Complete with pleated skirts, belted coats and oversized tailoring.

 

CHANEL
Models donned plastic boots and coats, while Chanel transported the runway to another world.

CHLOÉ
The first show under new creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi. Chloé girls reign strong.

CHRISTIAN DIOR
Sheer tulle dreams continue, along with denim and added sparkle for Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Christian Dior woman.

Full bloom.

DRIES VAN NOTEN
An array of mixed prints and colours. Unexpected tailoring and overlays that worked so well.

ELIE SAAB
Welcome to the jungle. Palm frond prints and python vibes.

ELLERY
Statement sleeves and artful accessories. The Ellery silhouette walks on in a fashion show for the digital age.

ESTEBAN CORTAZAR
Textured knitwear, deconstructed shirting and graphic colour, drawing inspiration from Cortazar’s native Colombia.

Nude beauty.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
Strong brows stole the show. Paired with glossed lips and highlighted skin – it’s a look to replicate.

GIVENCHY
Light of hand. Brushed brows and skin that shone.

HAIDER ACKERMANN
Electric-shock hair. Paired with bright glossed lips or barefaced looks.

HERMÈS
A checkered theme in a riot of colour.

All that she wants.

ISABEL MARANT
Isabel’s angels. Moisturised skin and not much else.

JACQUEMUS
Sun drenched holidays in the south of France, featuring the accessories you’ll want to keep forever.

LANVIN
Make tracks. Jagged liner cutting out from the corners of eyes.

LOEWE
A patchwork of prints and fabrics. Loewe girls on tour.

Old world meets new.

LOUIS VUITTON
A show held at the Louvre’s Pavillon de l’Horloge. Brocade jackets, silk mini shorts, patent leather and a nod to Stranger Things.

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
It was the neon pink lips in abstract shapes that stole the beauty look this year.

MIU MIU
Sheer overlays, print on print, layer upon layer upon texture.

NINA RICCI
Subtle shade. Bronze lids and peach cheeks gave the look of summer’s end.

A true retrospective.

OFF-WHITE
80s working girls and a nod to the people’s princess, Diana.

RODARTE
Flowers on set and in models’ locks, sheer tulle and lace tiered gowns. A midsummer night’s dream.

SACAI
A deconstructed assortment of print, colour and pattern.

SAINT LAURENT
Short hemlines showing off long legs, bubble dresses, ostrich feathers and added sparkle. Party girls and Parisian nightlife.

All in one.

STELLA MCCARTNEY
Sophisticated evening wear meets cool suit silhouettes. For whoever you want to be.

VALENTINO
Intergalactic. Whether it be a simple glossed lip or shading the eye with neon pink, the Valentino woman is otherworldly.
