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 four, and stay tuned for much more.
At Loewe, Jonathan Anderson provided further evidence that fashion's cat obsession will never die, and even has a place at luxury houses. Anderson used the motif in handbag charms, the shape of actual purses and necklaces, as seen here against a gorgeous blue wool skirt suit.
Issey Miyake's fall collection felt so cohesive as it walked down the runway that it was hard to think of it in terms of separate looks: each piece felt connected somehow to the one before it. This was particularly impressive, with its winding pleats and rich color. Known for his technological approach to design, Miyake used a technique called "3D Steam Stretch," which uses steam to shrink cloth, and the fabric moved unlike anything I've ever seen.
It might be simple, but this navy blue dress looked incredibly elegant as it walked down the runway, and really stood out against the busier, printed looks that came before it. That partially off-the-shoulder neckline is so chic.
This new wave-inspired, gray-on-gray ensemble is about as chic as '80s fashion gets — not to mention cozy. And that tied waist is so unmistakably Marant.
Couturier Alexandre Vauthier is capitalizing on the increasing exposure he's gotten from his celebrity clientele (Taylor Swift and Bella Hadid have worn his designs recently) by growing out his ready-to-wear-line, which he showed in private appointments on Friday. For fall, we were partial to the romantic, flowy silk dresses, military-inspired outerwear and his expanding footwear line. When it comes to sexy clothes at a luxury price point, there's not much better than this.
