Paris Fashion Week Diary Day 3 - Cameron
This week in Paris, the temperatures are unseasonably warm, with daily highs reaching 23C, which seems fitting considering the number of lace and linen getups hitting the spring 2015 runways. The weather, however, isn’t beloved by some of the attendees, particularly those who are keen to debut their latest fall purchases. At every show, I’ve spotted several spectators dressed in head-to-toe knits or heavy wools, fanning themselves furiously with their invitations.
For me, the highlight of the day was definitely the Dior show, particularly the entrance (see slideshow). Not as strong as some of Raf Simons’ previous outings for the French maison, but considering that every collection he’s designed since taking the reigns has made fashion folks drool, it’s about time he didn’t earn all four stars.
My other favourites of the day were Hussein Chalayan’s prints inspired by irrigation channels and the origami-inspired wares at Issey Miyake, which looked as light as air.
On Saturday, I’m most excited about seeing Jean Paul Gaultier’s last ready-to-wear collection, starring a certain Canadian supermodel that just might be on FLARE’s November cover.
Stay tuned...(first photo) First shows of the day. Particularly excited about Dior.
