As fashion month come to a close, Paris Fashion Week rounds up proceedings in style with spring/summer collections to die for. Here's the lowdown of what you'll be wearing next season, from the likes of Dior, Chanel, Balmain, Louis Vuitton and more.
Marie Griazia Chiui continued to explore the relationship between femininity and feminism with her latest collection, there to help women realize their worth and express their difference. Today's woman is free from the shackles of the patriarchy. She wears sheer slip dresses that look like she's ripped them to shreds. She wears deconstructed white shirts that slip off one shoulder. Pleated skirts that are sheer and far from prim. She wears leather biker jackets and choker necklaces. She is a rebel, and an elegant one at that. Read our full review of the Dior SS24 show here.
Gigi Hadid made her one and only appearance at Paris Fashion Week at Chanel this season, and it's easy to see why she wouldn't miss it. Virginie Viard took her cue from Villa Noailles, a 1920s mantion in Hyeres, which has close ties with the house (Chanel supports the October International festival of fashion there) - to present a collection that was a breath of Provencal fresh air. There were tank tops adorned with strawberries, candy-hued checks and stripes, plenty of Breton tops as well as as some colourful floral prints and sheer monochrome pieces.
Creative Director Gabriela Hearst continues her exploration into achieving climate success with her SS24 collection. Her past three collections for the Maison have been arranged into chapters, each focusing on a climate solution: regeneration (Autumn-Winter 2022), clean energy (Spring-Summer 2023) and female leadership (Autumn-Winter 2023).
The message is simple: If every person serves the planet and Mother Nature independently, collectively we will be a stronger force for positive change. Sartorially speaking, SS24 is heavily nature-inspired, from the botanical-inspired silhouettes to a focused colour palette representing clarity with bursts of marigold, coral and silver for enlightenment.
