Parisian grunge at Paul & Joe

Paris: For autumn/winter 15, Paul & Joe fused feminine preppy with grunge creating an overall youthful vibe. Knee-high grunge boots juxtaposed delicate peter-pan collar shirtdresses, berets were worn with velvet choker necklaces and single earrings, and silk bow blouses were paired with boyfriend pants, continuing the contradiction throughout. The colour palette ranged from muted neutrals to bold primary colors, based by black with the patterns being a mixture of reinterpreted tartans and wallpaper florals. Footwear made a major statement with colorful grunge boots and brogues with contrasting velvet laces, adding a heavy anchor to the delicate fabrics. Jaclyn Jones
