A/W 2016 Catwalk Alert: Altered & Transformed
By Lizzy Bowring

The Paris catwalks are playing with proportions, resulting in truly provocative and exciting designs, says the WGSN Catwalks Team

Mar 03, 2016


Each season, in addition to our in-depth catwalk reviews at WGSN, we spotlight the early trends that are coming through.

Right now we’re almost at the end of AW16 fashion month and key themes are emerging from the latest Paris shows.

Spotted at Y Project, Jacquemus, Koché and Lea Peckre, we saw deconstructed pattern-cutting and altered proportions transforming the Paris catwalks into a creative melting pot, with young emerging designers revising classic proportions, volumes and shapes.

Partly influenced by fashion tastemaker Vetements, this new guise generates a youthful, state-of-the-art vibe.

If this trend were a person it would be: Susie Bubble
