Paris Fashion Week has just ended: this colorful week, fashion shows and surprises to die for were dedicated to new ready-to-wear collections: Man and Haute Couture. If this year the fashion particularly dazzled us, the sets were not to be disregarded! With the fantastic show of circus that Dior offered us or the beautiful Mediterranean garden of Chanel, sobriety was not appropriate! beautypress gives you some details about this week "total fashion" and you share the trends for 2019! In your dressing room!

Towards a mixed race during parades

In recent years, the fashion week has experienced a wave of renewal: many houses have decided to break codes and do things differently, like Gucci who decided to gather his parades for men and women in 2016. Burberry had presented shows "co-ed" several times, not seeing the interest of separating the two collections during the presentation. Today, and as New York merges the Fashion Weeks Man and Woman from February 5 to 14, 2018, the English brand is thinking of making this meeting final.

The dates of the presentation of the staggered collections

Burberry chose, like Tom Ford, to shift the presentation Autumn-Winter 2016-2017 in September, explaining the need to adapt to the current world as it is, that is to say, more and more instantaneous: "today Our customers want a collection that is available now, "said Tom Ford in a press release (05.02.16). Indeed, it was noted that social networks allowed non-fashion professionals to follow fashion shows more and more easily and that this panel should not be neglected; but the delay between the presentation of a collection in Fashion Week and its release being 6 months, the non-professional spectators forget or confuse the pieces. These can also be copied by fast-fashion brands.

A democratized universe

To make haute couture fashion shows accessible to this new target, Givenchy opened the presentation of its Spring-Summer 2016 collection in New York, "Celebration of love", to 800 anonymous raffles. Two years later, the house has posted posters with the mention "Notice of Research" about Purrkins, the enigmatic black cat of the last advertising campaign, in the cities of Milan, London and Paris. These posters were actually invitations for the last Spring-Summer 2018 show and offered small coupons to pick up, which included codes to enter a site. It was then necessary to rely on luck because only three inhabitants would finally have the opportunity to attend the parade on October 1st. And for the less fortunate, it was possible as every year to follow the adventures of a large number of top models in the heart of Paris Fashion Week and elsewhere, on social networks including Instagram.

And the year of 2019 in Paris ...

For this edition, Fashion Week is a tribute to diversity. Valentino brilliantly put color models forward on his collection. Wearing voluminous princess dresses and floral skirts, it is especially when Naomi Campbell comes to join the painting that the spectators are amazed. Dior under a big top presenting a troupe of acrobats and a collection with fluid or pleated draperies, with sober and transparent colors. Chanel in a Mediterranean garden with a collection that particularly dazzled, especially for his bride in a bathing suit and swimming cap. Armani with primary tones, fashion week parades have dazzled both by their fairy than their originality. We also advise you to take a closer look at the collections of Jean-Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Viktor & Rolf, as zany as unexpected! In addition to the ever-impressive fashion shows, Fashion Week has welcomed many artists including Celine Dion as guest star (who made her own fashion show with her sequined and masculine outfits), Monica Bellucci who attended the marquee parade, Kristen Stewart and Pharell Williams who answered present for the Chanel show.

If we had to summarize, the spring-summer 2019 fashion shows put forward the wearing of jeans from head to toe, the timeless little black dress, and 80s trends. The spring-summer 2019 will also be marked by Sleeve effects, the hippie or bohemian-rock style (at the top for this season!) and collections with variable geometries. Side color, we remain on shades flashy or very sober! The yellow has been extremely highlighted as well as the pink that sublimates our tan!
