A collection made of fractured mirrors, metallic streaming, appliquéd poppers and plastic..a lot  of it. It was definintely a unique approach to fashion, but it wasn’t all synthetics; leather was used to, in many different textures and lengths.

 Key take-home message: Sometimes you can create fashionable outfits from things you find in random places

A collection made for the cool artsy girl who isn’t afraid to show her true fashion identity out in public. The prints used were very feminine, summery and alluring. In contrast, the boots were heavy, masculine, and wintery.

Key take-home message:  Wear fun summery prints come summer

Isabel Marant

A really compelling and absorbing collection which ticked all the Isabel Marant pre-requisites: printed dresses, silver jewels..and of course, sequins. A care-free, effortless ambiance was created in these outfits which seemed to be inspired in Middle Eastern influences.

Key take-home message: Inspire yourself from beautiful things around you

A flowy collection, which is ideal for warm summer days where all you want is a loose outfit. A collection allegedly inspired by Cuba; from its sea to the military army. Overall a relaxed collection

Key take-home message: Wear something playful, wear something loose, wear something relaxed!

Adjectives that come to mind when looking at this collection are: ethereal, heavenly, feathery, whimsical, beautiful, romantic…basically it’s unapologetically feminine. Yes. Alexander has done it again, and this time it’s even more special given that it’s his last collection at Balenciaga (so sad! But we’ll always have his eponymous label). But of course, this collection wouldn’t be Wang’s if it didn’t have some edge to counterbalance the celestial vibe, such as the low-slung trousers, sporadic racer-back tops, and wiring under busts. A really successful collection.

Key take-home message: Be sublime, airy, ethereal..with a twist of course.

Christian Dior

A collection dedicated to spring romance! The venue (which was none other than the Louvre museum) was filled with  400,000 delphiniums, and was simply divine; a perfect setting for this delicate and feminine collection. Raf Simmon’s mission statement was “To simplify and concentrate on a line that expresses an idea of femininity, fragility and sensitivity, without sacrificing strength and impact,” – ✔ check.  Attention to detail was exquisite here, and overall this collection fulfilled the crowd’s expectation.

Key take-home message: This spring be feminine, and sensitive in your outfit choices. And always, always, think Dior.
