Paris Fashion Week A/W’2015-2016 kicked off this season with a splash of sought-after designers. A range of designer aesthetics were showcased from Maison Valentino’s geometric extravaganza, Haider Ackermann’s luxe menswear look to Walter Van’s uber-cool designer vision. The excitement for what’s next on Day 2 has certainly kept us wanting some more in fashion’s hottest destination, Paris.

Valentino: The collection featured by the acclaimed Italian fashion house went big on geometric triangles. Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri featured garments in a colour palate of grey, maroon, tan, navy blue, red. Some of the biggest trends on Valentino’s runway were plaid, stripes, patchwork and print. The Italian designer put a modern twist to traditional silhouettes with leather patchwork details. Military print further added the sense of masculinity with leather backpacks and cardigans. Calfskin leather made its stylish appearance in leather gloves & patchwork jackets in shades of maroon, black, white and navy blue. Geometric print suits elevated the elegance showcased even more.


Y Project: The first thing that would strike you in this collection would probably be the sheen evident in the garments. Kicking off with a highly shiny blazer and pants ensemble, the designer moved on to lambskin leather separates in blue and black, trench coats with loose pants, hound’s-tooth tweed teddy and slacks ensemble. There was an impeccable structure and finish to the garments. The collection included a colour palate of dark blues, camel, white and red.


Julien David: The designer kept it relaxed and cool with a classic and white collection. Classics were given a casual spin as men wore classic B/W ensembles with loose ties and undone collars. Bermuda shorts definitely captured attention in his A/W’2015-2016 collection. Accessorized in aviator shades with sleek briefcases in black and silver enhanced the overall look.
