A selected shade can usually dominate each the runways and the crowds at any trend week. However this season, as a substitute of coalescing round a sure shade, designers and attendees appeared to embrace a lot of them.
On the streets at Paris Style Week, summery yellows blended with autumnal oranges. Dries Van Noten and Valentino evoked springtime by filling their collections with vibrant greens. Black, whereas not absent, was much less potent: Even Rick Owens, who has been referred to as the prince of fashion darkness, brightened up his present by sending garments in dusty fuchsias and pinks down the runway as plumes of neon-colored smoke have been launched and vibrant flower petals floated down.
Whereas the runways featured many palettes, there have been far fewer physique varieties. Except for on the Nina Ricci present in Paris, the place folks of various sizes walked the runway, models have been as skinny as I’ve seen them within the greater than 10 years I’ve been documenting trend weeks. And as instructed by the spate of colourful collections this season, selection is rarely a nasty factor.
