PARIS FASHION WEEK A’W: DAY 9
Nine days of Paris Fashion Week extravaganza ended on a brilliant note as designers constantly pushed beyond the conventional boundaries of fashion with utilitarian yet aesthetics. From Rahul Mishra’s ode to his village to Allude’s perfect match of sophistication and innovation, here’s a brief rundown of some of the collections showcased on the final day at Paris Fashion Week:
Masha Ma: The designer showcased a range of garments with a sober yet wintry colour palette of camel, olive-green, mustard yellow, navy-blue, black and off-white. Silhouettes showcased by the designer were majorly vertically rectangular as garments were regular-fits. The collection majorly featured solid shades with a splash of linear prints here and there. Outerwear outfits like the camel coats with shawl lapels, coat-dresses in brown and white and fitted dresses with shoulder pads were showcased. Knee-length tulip-skirts in a variety of shades also stood out in the collection. Leather also made its presence felt in knee-length coats, tulip skirts and regular-fit trousers. Geometric-prints with a spectrum of neutral colours featured in a knee-length dress and a sheer top. The looks were accessorized with leather boots in varying shades.
Allude: It was a perfect combination of sophistication and innovation showcased on the runway. Models were drenched in sober shades of cream, navy-blue, white, teal and light blue. The collection laid emphasis on the drapes and textures. Asymmetric lengths stormed the runway in knee-length skirts and sheer ensembles. The designer played with visual texture as abstract-print outfits combined both fur and fabric together. Colour blocked outfits in beige, white, sea-green, lime-green and brown made the rounds on the runway. The looks were accessorized with sleek crinkled hair and pointed-toe flats.
Rahul Mishra: This was the first Paris collection showcased by the International Woolmark Prize Winner, Rahul Mishra. The acclaimed Indian designer whose previous collection took the Industry by a storm created an equally fascinating collection this time as well. The silhouettes and colour palette were simple and minimalistic. Shades of white, black, navy-blue and pink featured in the garments. The collection was inspired by the idea of a self-sustained village. The designer, known for his knack in textiles and thread displayed intricate handwork in the ensembles. Various motifs like village huts, birds and flowers featured on garments like the sharply tailored notch lapel jacket, a woolen crop-top and a double-breasted knee-length coat among several others. Intricate embroidery done on sheer fabric, especially the ones on the skirts made the overall outfit standout. The collection was poetry in motion as models walked down in elegant and minimalistic outfits.
YDE: The collection showcased by the designer incorporated traditional winter outfits but with a modern touch. The collection began with a series of black outfits like the pleated leather dress, a shearling coat worn over a metallic jumpsuit and a patchwork leather coat paired with a knee-length skirt. Metallic tones of pale gold added a touch of glamour on the runway. The colour palette consisted of neutral shades and a dash of bright blue and gold. Ribbed-fur coats made a luxe statement on the runway. Apart from solid shades, trends like pleats, prints and stripes in an array of colours and designs made it on the runway.
