The six brands to watch at Paris Fashion Week

The giant week that closes Fashion Month, and it’s no doubt that Paris is one of the most anticipated cities on the circuit. With an added flare and excitement, Fashion Editor Natalie Petrevski rounds up the ones to watch at Paris Fashion Week.

Dries Van Noten

The best prints in the game. Mixing leopard with bright florals? Yes please. I usually gravitate towards the menswear pieces for Dries – my oversized party shirt is my favourite purchase to date.

Isabel Marant

I’ve always coveted an Isabel Marant broad shoulder – the ever-classic 80s silhouette that is synonymous with Marant runways. Designed for the ultimate Parisian girl; give me all the boots, boiler suits, leather, denim and mini hemlines.

Loewe

If the J.W.Anderson SS 20 show in London was anything to go by, the stakes for Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe Spring Summer offering just got higher. He’s the D.I.Y style maestro who always favours the arts, creating delightfully patchworked pieces that just seem so right. From the shoes, bags, headwear, knitwear, multi-fabrications – one of everything, s’il vous plait.

Paco Rabanne

Lose yourself. She’s the rock ‘n’ roll girl who’s dressed and ready for a midnight party. It’s the chain mail overlays, the glomesh second skin 90s wonders, the mirror-effect plates that can only be described as large sequins and the glittering linked mini bags. Get it?

Saint Laurent

I mean, don’t we all want to be one of Anthony Vaccarello’s girls – ultra cool and adorned in black religiously? I’m still longing for the day I get invited to a party where I can wear one of these incredible sequin mini dresses and it be socially acceptable. Or perhaps ‘acceptability’ isn’t the point?

Valentino

Pierpaolo Piccioli can do no wrong in my book, forever conjuring my dream fantasies and then some. From the sweeping oversized silhouettes, billowing sleeves and ruffles galore, to the incredible diverse casting, triple XL sun hats, top to toe sequin gowns that would make even Celine Dion envious, and probably my favourite beauty looks ever (I’m looking at you feathered lashes and sparkling eyes). Salivating.
