Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018 Runway Roundup

With the Spring 2018 runway shows officially drawing to a close in the City of Light, Paris Fashion Week has ended for yet another season. On the catwalks, designers such as Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior presented pastel pink frocks, feminine skirts and all manner of sparkly accents. Here’s a closer look at the most eye-catching collections from the Paris runways.

Giambattista Valli

At Giambattista Valli, the theme appeared to be ladylike luxury. The Italian designer featured pink ruffles and lace trim on skirts, tiny sheer camisoles and voluminous tiered frocks. Meanwhile, dainty yellow floral prints made their way onto pantsuits and romantic dresses. For a twist on classic prepster, fitted knit sweater vests were paired with puffed sleeve shirts.

Major Looks: Preppy femininity, lace and ruffles, tiers and sweater vests

Hermès

Creative director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski played with plaid in a major way, with checkered and tartan prints making an entrance. Rich verdant shades of green shared the stage with yellow, candy pink and grey. From oversized boyfriend blazers to pastel yellow pants, colour and patterns stole the spotlight at Hermès. Pops of burgundy also brought depth to textured trousers, a wrap dress and a flared midi skirt.

Major Looks: Plaid prints, trousers, bright shades of green, yellow and burgundy

Balmain

At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing focused on basic black, in the form of sleek black pleather. From shiny overalls to cropped skinny trousers, pleather brought a fierce 1980s style vibe to the runway. Meanwhile, clear plastic was a surprising and edgy twist on traditional fabrics. Models marched the catwalk in see-through boots, trench coats and fitted skirts. With over-the-top black ruffles and peplum waists bringing a finishing touch to designs, the collection managed to be rebellious yet chic.

Major Looks: Pleather and plastic, basic black, ruffles, rebellious vibes

Christian Dior

Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri merged practicality with elegance, which resulted in inspiration drawn from the 1970s. From bellbottom jeans paired with striped, feminist slogan tees to fringed knit skirts, the groovy Seventies were certainly in the air. Meanwhile, Dior’s latest colour palette involved shades of rich blue, creamy white and hints of neon yellow. Polka dots, black and white checkered prints and skirts with front slits all played a role.

Major Looks: Seventies inspiration, blue and white hues, checkered and polka dot prints
