PFW fashion and beauty report AW 17

Revisiting decades and a trip to space. The journey went far and wide for Paris Fashion Week AW 17.

Art house.

ACNE STUDIOS
It was accessories that stole the show at Acne Studios AW 17. Statement clay earrings, lace shoes and oversized bags.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Black leather coats and dresses, belted waists and fiery pops of red for Alexander McQueen AW 17.

BALMAIN
Eyes were swept with black and accented with gold, while hair was pulled into a ponytail with tight braids. Grunge meets glamour.

CÉLINE
It was all about loose, structured styles for Céline AW 17. The new workwear.

CHANEL
I’m a rocket man. A journey into outer space for Chanel AW 17, complete with silver space boots. Models donned Barbarella-esque hair with silver cat eyes and pink lips.

Golden years.

CHLOÉ
An exercise in 60s escapism. Clare Waight Keller left her mark in her final show at Chloé.

CHRISTIAN DIOR
Parisian girls do it better. Denim infusions, flowing tulle and a dark tonal colour palette. The look was completed with models in black leather berets, soft waves and natural skin.

DRIES VAN NOTEN
Dries Van Noten’s 100th show was all about nostalgia. Models who’ve walked his shows from the 90s to now took to the runway in a back catalogue of bold prints, metallics and colour.

ELLERY
Hourglass silhouettes, psychedelic prints and unexpected splashes of colour.

HAIDER ACKERMANN
Hair was asymmetrically cropped across a face of almost non-existent makeup. Clean, constructed and with attitude.

It’s cold outside.

HERMÈS
Leather jackets, knits, turtlenecks, tailored pants and pleated skirts made for luxe winter layering at Hermès AW 17.

ISABEL MARANT
Brows were feathered and hair left loose. Sincere and fresh.

JACQUEMUS
The Jacquemus silhouette reigns strong. Structured and fluid tailoring for the Parisian romantic.

LANVIN
Romantically simple. Eyes were coated in functional peachy tones and framed by full lashes.

LOEWE
A mix and match of materials, patterns and silhouettes creating an artfully collaged runway for Loewe AW 17.

Luxe appeal.

LOUIS VUITTON
Sleek leather, short evening dresses and the recurring Louis Vuitton boot. Just add lush, tousled waves and strong brows for ultra-wearable luxury.

MAISON MARGIELA
From barely-there makeup to eyes pulsating with colour, models embodied the ultimate rendition of a blank canvas.

MIU MIU
Eccentric 70s prints, playful accessories and new colours introduced with each look for Miu Miu AW 17.

OFF-WHITE
Houndstooth, reworked denim, lace and silk. Feeling fresh.

ROCHAS
Going back to the 40s and 50s for Rochas AW 17. Vintage women.

SACAI
An array of outerwear and prints that included puffer, tweed and denim jackets, tailored coats and tartan layering.

Catch the light.

SAINT LAURENT
Black leather, delicate lace and ruched boots for Saint Laurent AW 17. But it was the girls who sparkled that stole the show.

STELLA MCCARTNEY
Layering lace, camel jumpsuits, quilted jackets and smattering of high-end sportswear.

VALENTINO
A darker romance for Valentino’s AW 17 woman.
