Fashion month has ended with a bang via the collections in Paris. We saw creativity at its best, as well as new creative directors taking over storied houses.
The best five collections have been rounded off below.
5. ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Why: Sarah Burton took the house’s signatures and made it more feminine.
4. DRIES VAN NOTEN
Why: Dries is one of fashion’s most romantic poets. Victorian-tinged clothes on a runway decorated with cubes of frozen flowers? Yes please.
Why: Phoebe Philo’s clothes spoke to regular women. And when regular women support what you do, success is definite.
Why: Demna Gvasalia has done a great job in updating the house codes but at the same time injecting his own tastes that fans of his Vetements brand have come to know him for.
1. LOUIS VUITTON
Why: Because Nicolas Ghesquiere is genius. Also because it was his most sensual collection for the Vuitton brand to date.
