The final shows in Paris (March 5th) marked the closure to the major Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week schedule. Known for its more refined aesthetic, the runway shows in the French capital had a notable reduced amount of denim this season with designers looking to more premium fabrics to craft out their collections. Here, Stylesight rounds up the key denim looks to emerge from the catwalks.
Acne founder, Jonny Johansson returned to the Swedish labels streetwear roots this season with a collection inspired by the sea. Ocean blues and prints inspired by movement of the water were literal references while, sporty anoraks channeled a surfing theme. Sta-prest like chore coats and parallel pants hinted to retro ’70s themes.
While Isabel Marant’s H&M collaboration sold out in less than a day back in November, her F/W 14 runway collection didn’t quite deliver the same impact. Sticking to the sexy and streetwear aesthetic the designer is known for, Marant looked to earthy tones like army green and muddy browns on utility shapes like boiler suits, chore coats and quilted leather pants.
