PARIS’ NEW WAVE

PARIS FASHION WEEK MARKS BOTH THE PEAK AND THE END OF FASHION MONTH. AND THIS SEASON, IT ALSO MARKS A NEW ERA FOR THE PARISIAN INDUSTRY, KNOWING THAT A THUNDERSTORM OF CHANGES HIT THE CITY LATELY.

The letting go of Alber Elbaz from Lanvin and the goodbye of Raf Simons at Dior came as a shock. Instead of announcing new creative directors, the houses both announced to place trust in its own in-house teams to take the lead for drawing up the following collections. A decision that makes it pretty clear that it’s not the difficulty of finding a good match, but rather a new wave of democracy in fashion. Today, Paris Fashion Week kicks off and we already answered the most important questions:

Can a designer, whose creations are rooted in street style, take the helm at one of the most prestigious houses? Four month have passed since it was announced that Demna Gvasalia would takes the reins from Alexander Wang at Balenciaga. And Kering, we must admit, has made quite great decisions by appointing new creative directors, so we are more than curious to see how Monsieur Gvasalia will breathe new life into Balenciaga.

Has New York just been a love affair? Givenchy is turning its heart back to the roots to show the upcoming collection in Paris again after heading to New York last season. SS16 was a celebration of love and family coinciding with the 14th anniversary of 9/11. And with the current happenings in Paris will FW16 be as contemplative?

Fall/Winter is not just about letting go but moreover about the beginnings and fresh starts. Keep up with our up-to-the-minute show coverage and watch how Paris Fashion Week turns into the grand finale of the fashion month.
