1- Valentino

I wish I could attend the Maison Valentino show on repeat, every day through fashion week. The epitome of craftsmanship but also a visionary, a designer who leaves us every single time in awe.

Before the beginning of every show, I wonder, how he is going to sweep us off our feet this time. Because I am confident he will every single time.

Today’s SS20 tells us the story of going back to oneself and exploring one’s individuality. I love the kick off of the show with a continuous reinterpretation of the “perfect white shirt” (a staple you know I love), paired with statement gold accessories. The show continued with incredibly chic neon pieces-which can often be difficult to make feel timeless. Yet, Pierpaolo has done just that. The miniature neon bags are your next summer’s craze, not to forget the laced up sandals. In Pierpaolo fashion, the show ended on a couture note with several beaded/embroidered/feather dresses, reminding us the foundation of the Maison Valentino

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2- Hermes

Monochromatic rhythm on the runway last night where the epitome of French simplicity was demonstrated by Hermes.

There was an apparent focus on fabric, as well as silhouette’s to elicit a woman’s comfort-ability, beauty, sophistication….and of course empowerment.

My favorites would be the leather pieces where, in true Hermes fashion, will stand the test of time, trends and season. Loved the color palette, especially the khaki, camel and beige hues- very utilitarian.

Spotted a couple of bags that looked so modern, and I love how the house feels hi-storied yet new each season. The pinnacle? A finale to the tunes of Janet Jackson. What’s not not love ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3- Loewe

Today at Loewe, Jonathan Anderson presented an exceptional collection inspired by Japan. The juxtaposed set design of linen partitions among towering amethyst geodes was just the perfect runway.

My favorite looks: the lace dresses. I loved the suits, and have to mention the black one paired with yellow boots- powerful. Of course, the collection also presented stunning silk gowns for day or night. Spotted more crisp white shirting and the house’s iconic sculptural accessories/wearable art never ceases to inspire. There was also a peak at new handbags- destined to be a “must have”. In short, gorgeous fabrics and silhouettes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4- Isabel Marant

No one does Modern Parisian woman like Isabel Marant , who last night, brought together her muses from all ages.

Love how Marant is always so true to herself, reinterpreting wardrobe staples with a unique twist. We were introduced to beachwear, colorful prints, short hems, and boxed shoulders… each look impressively stronger than the last. A climactic crescendo, the show ended with darker, more tailored looks- the last two jumpsuits are my personal winners. Let’s not forget the soundtrack… insane beat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5- Chloe

A real Chloe woman manifests. Loved Natacha’s interpretation of romantic traditions.

A lot of sophistication, sensuality, and freedom. This collection brings in beautiful tailoring contrasted with fluid silhouettes.

As for the color palette, a Chloe favorite, ranging from whites to black with green, lavender, and old pink. Very subtle.

As for accessories, loved the crystal chokers, the gold tied cuffs, the short buckled boots and the croc embossed bags. Eager for next summer.
