West Side Summer at Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello Spring Summer 2019 at Paris Fashion Week
Among all the parades of PARIS Fashion Week, we can mention the brightest star of the constellation KERING aka. SAINT LAURENT – by Anthony VACCARELLO – thanks to the scenography and a collection as magical to look at as a solar eclipse. Whether Parisian, tourist or guest, we could all admire this fabulous show that took place in Trocadero, right on the fountain of Warsaw, transformed into a boulevard covered with 0.8 centimeters of water, lined of fake palm trees that reached at least ten meters, illuminated by the bright whiteness of the spots and EIFFEL Tower, that we could almost forget as the immersion was strong.
The VACCARELLO vocabulary is clear and appreciated, from Anna WINTOUR to Cindy CRAWFORD passing by Kate MOSS, all present for the event. The silhouettes of the designer are sexier than ever with this pronounced sophistication in structure and materials. For this collection, the designer takes us into an atmosphere that mixes French and US Western influences.
The shows start with a classic of the house: the night black Tuxedo, skillfully mixed with python print boots, embellished by the waves and splash of water due to walking. VACCARELLO also offers the tuxedo in a version worn by Kaïa GERBER: very high-waist cigarette trousers mixed with a gothic blouse, whose trumpet sleeves, made of lace and silk, appear in contrasting prolongation on the purple red of a velvet jacket. The scarves act as panther javots, the hats are worn with attachments that remind of western inspiration: masculine codes that create this androgynous vision and sexual freedom so dear to the aesthetic developed by VACCARELLO for SAINT LAURENT.
Patterns are always in the collection like hearts and stars, typical of the house. We find them in embroidered sequins on a jumpsuit as well as on the famous Adut AKESH, wearing an electric blue mini dress with stars – whose gold color stars complete the sandals with heels, which defy the law of gravity above the water.
The legs are magnified, thanks to the black tights with the denier cleverly chosen to give the good transparency, but also by the extreme shortening of the dresses, skirts and shorts more “mini than mini”, which give almost the impression to be invisible. A mini short appears as a golden band at mid-thigh hidden under a crossed blazer, whose lapels are set with crystals.
This erotic pleasure, very inspired by the shots of Helmut NEWTON, especially with the silhouettes of beach playing with a spirit lingerie couture: dresses, jerseys and bodysuits are magnified by games of transparency, drapes and extension of volumes of the shoulders, by working the neckline in crossed structure. What amazes us for the third season that VACCARELLO chose the Trocadero to remember that Paris is so magical and remains the city of fashion.

Moon Choi Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
Moon Choi decided to have her self-named brand headquartered in New York, a very popular choice for many fashion labels. She graduated with a BFA from Parsons School of Design, one of the top fashion schools in New York City. Being a more recent graduate, designer Choi has only had her label for 3 years. After college she gained experience working at 3.1 Phillip Lim.
For her Fall Winter 2019 collection she has decided to give a fashion presentation instead of a runway show. This season she gave us the impression of minimalism with using natural color tones and without using jewles or embelishments on the pieces. She presented looks for both men and women as many of the pieces in the collection are unisex. Choi put a lot of time, attention and detail into each of her pieces. Each look is well thought out and flows together nicely. The designer is known for impeccable tailoring, so she of course showed this talent off in the collection. Shoulder pads were added to several of the pieces to make stronger silhouettes. The collection had elements of masculinity and femininity that flowed together. These features added plain details to the looks and contributed to the minimal theme while still making the collection feel high end and designer.

Romeo Hunte Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
Designer Romeo Hunte was raised in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up, living in New York, knowing he wanted to work in fashion and become a designer, he of course chose to attend the top fashion school in the United States, The Fashion Institute of Technology. While working as a personal shopper, in 2014 he launched his self named brand. Celebrities like Zendaya, Beyoncé, Victor Cruz, Laverne Cox and Hailey Baldwin are all fans of Hunte, his brand and designs.
The most fun thing about the show was a couple models who were seen holding dogs and carrying them down the runway. Presenting not only womenswear, Hunte also presented several menswear looks. Colors of red, pink, purple, orange, blue denim, khaki, white, black and brown were used. Snake skin, furs and leathers were added throughout the collection which made it feel luxurious and high end. What I loved most about this collection is Hunt presented to us exactly what we want to wear in the fall. It was realistic and relatable. Fringe details were added to overalls, pants and tops, which added a fun and playful twist on a classic item. Our favorite part of the collection was the trendy and stylish outerwear, something Hunte is known for.

Luxurious Knit Collection at Maria Aristidou Fall Winter 2018 during Haute Couture Fashion Week
Maria Aristidou Fall Winter18 Haute Couture Collection, Serendipity, originated from her desire to be different from the rest. While other Haute Couture shows at Paris Fashion Week revealed collections with ritzy gowns, Maria Aristidou focused on simplicity. The casualness in her designs defied the rules of Haute Couture and created a serendipitous mood.
This collection of classic basics was crafted from luxurious knit fabrics and inspired by geometric shapes. The pattern was repeated in vertical rows on many of the dresses. Other practical looks included jumpsuit, tops, skirts, pants and jackets. These simple shapes in traditional colors of black, gray, olive, green, brown and red are couture designs we can actually wear on a regular basis.
What especially stood out were the details: Peter-Pan collars, ruffles outlining plunging necklines, scalloped-hems and the hint of adornment on the waists and collars. We loved the black architectural-shaped collared dress with jewel adornment at the front. The adornment is perfect for the office to social event without having to change. It’s ideal for the busy fashion executive or uptown girl always on-the-go and looking for versatility in her wardrobe.
As our schedules get busier, we need versatile fashions that can keep up with our fast-paced lifestyles. This luxurious knit collection of classic basics with style and ease is exactly what the modern-sophisticated woman needs.

Xuan Spring Summer 2018 during Haute Couture Fashion Week
The Dutch-Vietnamese designer Xuan-Thu Nguyen held another runway show for her Spring Summer 2018 collection. With this being couture, the brand is of course based in Paris while strategically choosing to do production in both France and Holland. Born in Vietnam but raised in the Netherlands, Xuan-Thu grew up in the fashion industry since her parents were owners of a textile business. She got her start by learning at the Charles Montaigne Fashion Institute in Amsterdam. Not always has the brand gone by the name Xuan; it used to be called Xuan-Thu Nguyen. In 2008 she presented her first haute couture collection in Paris, France. Xuan-Thu’s Spring Summer 2017 Couture show was a memorable hallmark because for the first time she showed her collection apart of Fédération de la Haute Couture.
This season’s presentation included eleven looks made using a small color palette of black, white and pastel blue and a very washed out pink. Flower details were a common theme seen throughout the collection. White flowers were placed over the shoulder of a black dress and black flowers scattered across on the arms and body of a short black dress with white pockets on the bottom front. This collection is darker and romantic while still having a sense of lightness and air to it.
