PFW, Day 7 + 8 + 9 (FW13)

We've finally reached the end, and we decided to combine as many days as possible together.
Here's the last bit of it:


Bold buckles were a recurring character on the Vionnet runway. The show notes described the collection as, "A vision of modern femininity delineated in bold, confident brushstrokes." Though dresses were part of the formula, they weren't prissy. They leaned toward sexy, but were more about the kind of clothes that women would wear for themselves.

Paul & Joe

Slouchy clothes with a quirky twist were presented at Paul & Joe. It had elements of both feminine, with sweet dresses that had high collars, and masculine through outerwear, and everything was extremely relaxed.

Sacai's pieces have a bit of this and that. They have different colored fabrics mixed together, such as switching colors in the pleats of skirts. But it always remained commercial, and we're again reaffirmed that large plaid deserves a special place in our wardrobe come fall.

Paco Rabanne

Style icon Françoise Hardy was the muse for this collection. So mod touches and short hemlines were found throughout. The theme was very clear, but the knockout pieces were chain-mail pieces. They were very in line with the other parts of the collection, but just felt like a modernized, wearable version that might not really be synonymous with chain mail.
