Bonjour! After tackling the fall 2016 shows in New York, London and Milan, we've reached the final stretch (and, arguably, the pinnacle) of Fashion Month: Paris Fashion Week. Read on for the looks that caught our attention on day three, and stay tuned for much more over the next several days.
The Japanese-Parisian brand Maison Kitsuné held showroom appointments for a '30s-tinged fall 2016 collection that, in addition to featuring several silhouettes inspired by that time period, also made new use of the brand's logos. Its signature fox motif, for one, was beautifully reinterpreted by South Korean, Brooklyn-based artist Dan-ah Kim.
Out of all the frothy dresses in Clare Waight Keller's subtly biker-inspired fall collection, this was the most stunning as it walked down the runway. It definitely deserves some red carpet attention.
Carven's fall 2016 collection provided lots of evidence that new-ish creative directors Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud are quite commercially minded. It was filled with pieces that would look irresistible hanging on a rack in a store, especially this shearling coat. I don't think there was an editor in the room who didn't want to grab it off the model's body.
While the shearling-covered outerwear will likely be a big seller from Carven's fall collection, I was drawn to this pink-on-pink look, the girlie-ness of which is nicely suffused by the dress's thick, wide straps.
As we mentioned, Rick Owens's fall collection was more than crazy hairballs. There were some truly lovely dresses, including this elegant black wool number. Paired with a heel instead of these sneaker boots, this look would have a totally different vibe.
As always, the Vetements fall collection had a lot of commercial appeal — particularly for its signature sweatshirts and denim. However, I was most drawn to this look. The pairing of the ruffled, polka-dot dress with textured purple boots is surprising, but still feels wearable. It's just the right kind of eccentric.
