    Dior Spring 2016

    First things first: The flower of the season is the delphinium. It’s that purple bloom in the background—Dior wrestled up nearly half a million of them for Raf Simons’ Spring ’16 show at the Louvre’s Cour Carré. The bag is a structured duffel, the shoe is a pointed-toe mule, the sweater is cropped, the hemline

    Elie Saab Spring 2016

    Entering the Elie Saab show at the Tuileries were what seemed like hundreds of actual clients. But if they filed into the building expecting to empty their deep pockets for the usual fare, they were in for a surprise. This was a decidedly younger show than we’ve come to expect from Saab. Gigi Hadid and

    Isabel Marant Spring 2016

    The venue for Isabel Marant at the Jardin du Palais-Royal has to be one of the best we’ve seen yet. Guests walked into an open venue with high greek columns and stripped pillars of varying sizes in the entry way, which proved to be great props for the street style stars. Natalie Joos coincidentally turned up

    Issey Miyake Spring 2016

    At Issey Miyake it was an explosion of sound, color, and…hair! The electrifying coifs by James Pecis went every which way and the sounds by Ei Wada and Masatsugu Hattori had everyone thumping to the beat. Wada performed on a synthesiser and open reel deck (which has been used in Issey Miyake’s shows before), while

    Balmain Spring 2016

    A long-sleeved suede mini…a chocolate brown jumpsuit…high-waisted leggings…merciless hot pants…haven’t we seen something like this before? Well, in the late seventies and early eighties, bien sûr, but also on a Kardashian Instagram account in recent moments. Olivier Rousteing intimately gets what many young (and young-at-heart) women want to look like—unapologetically powerful, shamelessly sexy. As always,

    Lanvin Spring 2016

    Theater lovers, this one’s for you. From ushers to A-listers to those in the nosebleed section, Alber Elbaz covered every aspect of the showgoing experience with humor and panache. Should you fancy a black jacket or a white blouse, you’ll confront an embarrassment of riches. Same goes for a statement cocktail dresses (warning: short is

    Rick Owens Spring 2016

    From the man that brought you tunics cut to reveal a man’s genitalia and an American step dance crew to the runways of Paris, now comes human backpacks. Just when you think Rick Owens can’t top himself, he does. But behind all of the awe and shock of his runways is a message: Rick Owens is

    Carven Spring 2016

    To get to the Carven show in Paris, guests were ushered around a lengthy side of the Tuileries due to a job fair hosting brands like the Parisian supermarket chain Carrefour. The two passing crowds attending vastly different events couldn’t have been more contrasting. Inside the tent, Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud debuted a collection

    Chloé Spring 2016

    Seventies fever shows no signs of subsiding, but chez Chloé, there’s a fresh spin. Think…polyester tracksuits! Or at least a luxed-up version of the jacket, paired with a floral floor-grazing peasant skirt. (A few looks would have felt right at home in Dazed & Confused, which is required viewing for the fashion set in 2015,

    Rochas Spring 2016

    She was known as “Gala”—an art dealer, model, and muse to many who was best known for her long and famously dramatic marriage to Salvador Dali. Although Gala Dali (b. Elena Ivanovna Diakonova in Russia in 1894) died in 1982, she’s having another moment courtesy of Alessandro Dell’Acqua, who used her as inspiration for Rochas’
