Céline top and coat

Fashion week concluded with a dash of elegance as Paris streets filled to the brim with flair and sophistication. I bring you the final roll call of trends seen on street style A-listers.

BLUSHING PINK

From the baby variety to dusty rose, this blushing shade was a popular choice among fashion week attendees. Caroline Issa wore a chunky pink jacket in soft rose, Ece Sukan was seen in a pink pencil skirt while Hanelli Mustaparta was in an asymmetrical skirt of the same shade. Let’s not forget Jessica Heart’s gorgeous lace Valentino dress in dusty rose, while Vika Gazinskya roamed the sidewalk in a baby pink pant suit with white collar and sleeve fold overs.

ROSES ARE RED

Seen as a winner on pouts in Milan, this bright hue was taken one step further by fashionistas in Paris. Black and red colour blocking was seen on an Acne Studios jacket, Caroline Issa utilized this trend in her sheer midi length skirt, Holli Rogers was a vision in a red and white colour block ensemble, M.I.A was spotted in red and black geometric print pants while Yasmin Sewell graced the streets in a red Acne studios top, sleeveless and rough in texture.

ORANGE YOU GLAD

Another popular beauty hue that has began a revolution on the streets, this fruity colour was a top choice in the field of couture. White and orange colour blocking was used in Caroline Brasch Nielsen’s outfit, while Julia Sarr-Jamois swapped white for grey in a more casual ensemble mixing knits with structure. Miroslava Duma matched her Aperlai shoes with a statement black dress with orange faux fur detail on the sleeves.

GREEN WITH ENVY

Everything from bottle green to emerald to bright verdant popped up numerous times on the sidewalk. Seen on the likes of Anne-Catherine Frey in Balenciaga top and pants, Giovanna Battaglia in a Corlina Herrera skirt with geometric patterns, Marine Deleeuw in a moss green Dries Van Noten Dress, a bright green Carven dress worn by Stephanie LaCava, and Veronika Heilbrunner in a bright Acne Studios knit.

MONOCHROME

Despite the insurgence of bright colours in the streets, the ever classic black and white remained a staple. Giovanna Battaglia relished the trend, as did Anya Ziourova in her Dior top and skirt. Caroline Issa and Caroline Sieber followed suit, while Michelle Eliewas spotted in black and white pattern pants with a crisp white shirt. Jourdan Dunn was seen in a casual Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony top and pants while Valentina Siragusa looked every bit corporate luxe in her Stella McCarteney pinstripe jacket.

GEOMETRIC PATTERNS

Another staple that is set to stay, the pattern-mania taking over the world proved its power on Parisian Streets. Anna Dello Russo in a her signature look of a geometric print dress, Anya Ziourova in neon orange, Chiara Totire when animal farm with a bright rooster on the back of her white coat, Indre Rockefeller in a Pineapple emblazoned Peterpan collar dress, Joan Smalls in Kenzo Top, and Natalie Joos dressed top-to-toe in Mary Katrantzou kaleidscope style dress and shoes.

PLAID & TWEED

Plaid and tweed are proving themselves to be the next it trend on the streets. Tweed Chanel bags popped up on numerous occasions, whilst plaid Celine shoes, tops, and coats were seen on the likes of Francesca Burns, Michelle Elie and Sarah Harris.

OVERALLS

Overalls, an ode to the simpler times of our childhood, and to comfortable chic fashion of the modern day. Spotted in denim form on Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Saskia de Brauw created her own trend in Yohji Yamamoto pants –  simple, grey, and with a  drawstring waist – teamed with suspenders, while Ulyana Sergeenko sported black 70s overalls, flared legs and all.

LET’S GO BACK

Speaking of the 70s, the retro trend does not look like it’ll be going anytime soon. Deena Abdulaziz embraced the 80s silouhette with broad shoulders in a white top that tapered to a black pencil skirt. Hanelli Mustaparta was seen in a Stella McCartney top reminscent of a Francine Pascal heroine’s wardrobe, Ulyana Sergeenko was spotted in a retro 50s  ensemble including a head wrap, while Susie Lau took on the vintage hat trend with a tangerine tilt hat and netting framing the face.
