After each Fashion Week there's a great opportunity to highlight talent, but also point out what didn't exactly work out. Constructive criticism is, after all, the best way to learn how to do things differently, and maybe a lot better. Don't you think?!
The French designer indroduced her "luxurious" fashion on her home turf. Did Marine Serre take inspiration for her creations from Paris, or did she venture into a world without limits, which is dominated by extravagance and maybe even a little bit of violence? Because looking at this collection sure does hurt a bit. Balaclavas with only holes for eyes and mouth, massive chains or fluorescent neon lights didn't really woo us in the slightest.
If you don't want to leave the impression that you have just arrived from outer space, we recommend that you avoid the models of the Indian designer Manish Arora. Looking at the extravagant make-up and crazy fashion creations, this kind of mix-up could easily happen!
During Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto's show we briefly forgot which country we were actually in, or rather, which continent. Because the runway was dominated by "black widows" with dark paint on their lips, but also shrouded faces that did not reveal very much, and honestly were actually a little bit creepy. We want to see frills, colors and feminine curves!
So when you want to draw inspiration from one of the most stylish fashion capitals of the world, rememeber, there's inspiration and then there's inspiration...
The Paris Fashion Week is an event I really look forward to every year. Beautiful gowns, elegance and refined taste... However, there are moments when Paris quickly becomes hell!
I'll start with a young French designer whom her last name speaks for :) Marine Serre: sadomasochistic overalls combined with an eskimo coat, or chains? That's what I'd really call a fashion suicide!
Next we have an aging Indian hipster Manish Arora. You know, I was really on board for the initial thought of painted silk. It reminded me a little of the work of the Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana. Unfortunately the entire concept fell apart as soon as he crammed Hindu deity-themed accessories among the few chic pieces.
And at the very end, Yohji Yamamoto. How should I describe it... Okay, let's see. If there were to be an actual embodiment of the Grim Reaper, we just witnessed several possible versions of it. And who wants to look like Death? Ehmm...
