Masculine tailoring on womenswear dominates day2 Paris FW
Feb '13
Like New York, London and Milan, this season the birthplace of fashion’s greatest houses Paris also seems to be in the mood of celebrating clean cut menswear tailoring on womenswear, a trend which has been reiterated on Belgian designer Dries Van Noten’s show at Paris Fashion Week (PFW).
The 54-year-old designer presented his Hollywood-inspired masculine style feminine collection on the second day of PFW. Paying homage to legendary American dancing couple Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Noten’s latest line highlighted the playfulness of ballroom dancing with Ostrich feather attached midnight blue ensembles, embroidered and vintage fur outfits teamed with men's baggy pants, navy blue feathered skirts and large white tuxedo shirts.
English fashion designer Gareth Pugh’s dark, hellish post-modern range showcased fastidiously tailored long, flared otherworldly silhouettes. The 49-piece collection included stiff cowl neck or giant collar shawls, extremely oversized lapelled fold-over jackets and full skirts.
French clothing label Guy Laroche’s Franco-Swedish Artistic Director Marcel Marongiu presented a line that highlighted the fiercely independent womanly spirit. The brand’s Fall/Winter 2013/2014 ready-to-wear range featured shocking pink and purple silk gowns, statement bomber jackets, see-through lingerie shift dresses and leather and bondage strap outfits.
Fashion brand Mugler presented a 27-piece ladylike collection designed by Nicola Formichetti. With an abundant use of glossy fabrics and fur, the designer’s slick ensembles, such as gentle rounded shoulder tops and softer skirts, featured cocoon-like silhouettes.
