The eighth and penultimate day of Paris Fashion Week kicked off with strong feminism placards toting and fierce protest slogans chanting models at the French fashion house Chanel’s boulevard catwalk venue.

Designed under the aesthetic guidance of the brand’s creative director of German origin Karl Lagerfeld, the featured Spring/summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection was replete with watercolour prints in psychedelic hues, origami patchworks in organza, pinstripes and navy tailoring. The standouts were a jacket with shrug like shoulders, a pavement pattern embroidered dress with tiny flowers and a long wide-leg tweed pantsuit.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the creative duo behind the Italian luxury fashion house Valentino, took inspiration from the 18th century Italy for their latest runway presentation. Adorned with vibrant baroque bloom prints, multicoloured stones and marine life-inspired motifs, the pieces included gigantic seahorse painted blue minidresses, starfish print maxis and flowing boho-chic white lace dresses.

The Dutch design talent Iris van Herpen stayed true to her signature technical and scientific themed inspiration sources for creating the latest Magnetic Motion range which was an aesthetically balanced combination of clothing, art installation and scientific experiment. The featured ensembles were horn-shaped crystal embellished jackets with black mesh overlays, shiny 3-D flower adorned black bustier gowns and dresses accented with triacetate fabric made feathers.

The British fashion label Alexander McQueen capped off the day with a Japanese-inspired collection designed by its creative head Sarah Burton. Incorporated with silk jacquard, leather, organza and performance fabrics, the floral print heavy line drew inspiration from the modern day warrior women. Enhanced with slashed sleeves and cut-out detailing, the line showcased boxy cocoon-shaped outerwear, embroidered sheer shirts with plunging necklines, metallic laser cut minis and full skirts. (PB)
