Day 3: September 26, 2018
At the Grand Palais, Maison Margiela presented its “co-ed” collection under the creative direction of John Galliano. Before the show, a moving video was broadcast that included notable people like Willow Smith celebrating diversity and non-gendered clothes. It was a complete collection that included a proposal for both men and women and where coats and trench coats in pink, beige, gray and black where the main protagonists. Metallic footwear gave a trendy plus to an overall complete collection full of fashionable items for an androgynous collective.
From the Jardins du Trocadero, Rocha´s chosen spot for its show, one could see the Eiffel Tower looming, giving splendor and glamour to a collection by Alessandro de L´Acqua that felt like a poem — all about feathers, silk and sequins in neon colors like yellow but also in others like pink and black. My friends, it girl Micol Sabbadini and instagirl Julia von Boehm would not miss the show and neither would Gala González and other people from the fashion industry. All in all, the collection was just like a sunny day in Paris: perfection.
Dries Van Noten
Dries Van Noten presented its color bomb Spring Summer collection at the Palais de Tokyo. Anna Wintour, seated first-row, was able to see the designer’s perfect combination of textures and motifs, which one expects to see in Paris Fashion Week, as did chef Pamela Golbin. White and yellow were the chosen ones to open the show, but a parade of colors followed including blue, orange and green in floral motifs and fringes in most of the pieces.
