Hello from Grand Palais Guys!
The second day of Paris Fashion Week meant for me great time in Paris, even if I was already beat! I have only slept 4 hours total the night before and had walked over 14,000 steps in heels! Yes, fashion week was really exhausting, especially for my feet. But thank God the weather was so beautiful that day and I enjoyed it at Grand Palais during Mugler SS16 Fashion Show.
Fashion Week can only be described by one single word : madness. I might need to add a few others like, excitement, inspiration, overwhelm, broken heels and legs and so much coffee …But is always the perfect time to play around and get creative when it comes to outfit choices. I really liked to switch up my style from one show to another!
The theme at Mugler SS16 was Military, so loved and used by designers throughout time. Donatella Versace launched her martial-themed Spring ’16 collection at Paris Fashion Week, being like a campaign for gender empowerment.We must expect every season to see a significant military presence in her collections. Because when it’s done well, military can make the utilitarian seem sexy via universally recognizable signifiers.
“We have such incredible girls here, and it’s about being inspired by them. Wanting them to look cool, to look fresh, and to enjoy clothes.”, said Donatella after Mugler SS16 fashion show. And “She must NOT wear underwear! ” Metal decorated dresses, body-con or camouflage ones, some in high-heels, some in strap flats or pointy-toed boots, a little bit of orange were the highlights of Mugler SS16 fashion show.
The final push was Doutzen Kroes, the angellic blonde, looking invincible in a backless navy jumpsuit, showing off her perfect proportions on the runway. Doutzen, 30, stole the show leading the stunning line up to the sound of applauds on closing the show, while her counterpart Lily, was fierce in a leather mini dress. Both girls were styled with their golden hair parted on one side to reveal their strong features.
Down to Earth, eyes on the stars?
There is no one way of summing up what happened in Paris for fashion week. But it was a great experience and I can’t wait to be back next year!
I really think that there was a feeling in the air and the lifeblood is coming back into fashion from the margins. Whatever their work is looking, these designers are singing in the same choir.
What I’m saying is :
Let’s get back to being more true to life! Let’s do more what our hearts believe in!
Everyone we loved most in Paris did that!
