Paris Fashion Week opens with local & global talent shows
Sep '14
Paris, the last of the four global destinations to host fashion weeks highlighting Spring/Summer 2015 trends, kicked off the nine-day-long Paris Fashion Week with eclectic ready-to-wear creations from talented national and international names.

The French fashion creator Anthony Vaccarello opened his show with a sexy bold collection based on nautical styles. Replete with décolletage revealing necklines, the range featured stripe detailed cropped denim tailcoats, asymmetrical miniskirts, slouchy pants, micro minis with snaps and dresses emblazoned with laser cut brand logo.

Magma, the burning reddish orange molten rock that lies beneath the earth’s crust, played as the source of inspiration for designer Christine Phung’s latest runway line. Mixed with sporty details and immaculate couture tailoring, the collection was enhanced with cut-outs, polka dots and wide knits. Based on volcanic colour theme of blacks, whites and reds, the featured pieces were shorts, open knit jackets, pleated languid dresses and fluid tops.

The American-born and the UK-based designer Corrie Nielsen harked back to the 1960s retro era for her new runway ensembles. Inspired from yesteryear’s fashion icons like Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, the line titled Single Girl was accentuated with futuristic and voluminous looks. Based on shades of off-white, cream, beige, gold and dark brown, the standouts were a transparent dress featuring a circular skirt with padded patchworks, oversized tops and outfits with scooped out backs.

Young Parisian fashion talent Léa Peckre mixed Oriental and European elements into her new S/S15 designs. The tailored collection included a ruffled men’s T-shirt-cum-minidress, a sheer kimono and a belted wrap coat.

Kunihiko Morinaga, the designer behind the Japanese fashion house Anrealage, featured monochrome dresses in stiff cotton, jacquard and lace fabrics whereas brand Devastee’s creative duo Ophelie Klere and Francois Alary chose to highlight a 25-piece range, which was comprised of double breasted jackets, silk A-line coats and jumpsuits with waistbands decorated with teapot, church, smiley polka dot, hand and rain cloud prints.
