Let’s see some of the fire (I mean it) collections
The Princess of Wales’ preferred designer label Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter collection at Paris Fashion Week, entitled “Anatomy,” focused on cut, proportion, and silhouette while examining the anatomical structures of people, flowers, and clothing.
The collection’s inspiration, according to show notes from creative director Sarah Burton, was “the classic subverted: twisted inside out and upside down.” Focusing on the extremes, several of the outfits included dissected components like sliced shoulders. The volume is either dramatic or neatly bound in precise outlines.
Anatomy was further explored by the company by posting X-ray photographs of important sections on social media before the presentation.
Naomi Campbell opened the scene by stepping out of the darkness and into the light, appearing to be dressed in a corseted top with a provocative cutaway feature across the chest. A concept that throughout the entire collection was the contrast between the tightly bound upper body and the wide-legged pants.
A ghastly silhouette was formed by pin-sharp shoulders and slightly upturned seams on tightly fitted coats and blazers. Cotton and leather trench coats, which were tightened at the waist to contrast with the broad A-line design and voluminous sleeves, became standout outerwear. worn with the arms pushed up and paired with chic leather gloves to further accentuate the hourglass figure.
I wasn’t kidding when I mentioned FIRE
Theatrics being pulled off on the runway have become a fairly common sight throughout Paris Fashion Week. Labels have been stepping up their collections every year, from Bella Hadid’s spray-on dress to the newest Paris Fashion Week exhibit of Danish designer Heliot Emil’s “on-flame” ensembles.
The unisex clothing line Heliot Emil, launched in 2016 by Julius and Victor Juul, is its most well-known product. The brand debuted during Milan Fashion Week before travelling to Paris. Because it was an experimental brand that promoted semantic discussion within the fashion business, the brand became quite popular there.
An Indian on the ramp of Dior
Punjab-born model Kirandeep Chahal recently walked the Dior runway at Paris Fashion Week. During fashion week, she will perform in another Dries Van Noten show. She confessed, in a statement to ETimes, “I needed to reduce my weight. I used to be my manager’s go-to person for runs. I had to adhere to an extremely tight diet and arrived in Paris with no plans. It was an absolutely mind-blowing experience.”
“That seemed so bizarre. I feel proud that I could represent my country here as the lone Indian girl who walked in yesterday’s Dior show at Paris Fashion Week “Added by her.
Scanning at the show
Models strolled in pairs and posed in front of a UV light during the Anrealage show during Paris Fashion Week, which scanned them from top to bottom. These white clothes abruptly changed colours in front of everyone’s eyes thanks to “experimental, photochromic materials” that the business created. Many in the audience linked the collection to Coperni’s spray-on garment that Bella Hadid wore last season as they applauded and cheered for the presentation.
Robot Dog at play
With its most recent presentation during Paris Fashion Week, Coperni generated a lot of buzz online. On Friday, when models and canine robots shared the runway, the brand transported us to the world of super-robots. Le Loup et l’Agneau, or “The Wolf and The Lamb,” is a French fable that served as the inspiration for the theatrical performance in which models—including Kate Moss’s daughter Lila—posed among five robots.
The Theatre National de la Danse in Paris hosted the performance.
With Bella Hadid’s spray-painted dress from the previous year, designers Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant handed the internet its most popular moment of the year. This year, Coperni produced another eye-catching sequence by drawing inspiration from a French story.
A robot dog is seen dragging model Rianne Van Rompaey’s jacket in the videos that have gone viral. In a gesture of peace between the two, the robot also kept Lila Moss’s tiny swipe bag, which he subsequently returned with the coat. When models walk the runway for the grand finale, the robots finally bow.
