Runway Highlights: Paris

Jean Paul Gaultier

A rock ‘n’ roll theme prevailed throughout the Jean Paul Gaultier show, from the models’ spiky Joan Jett-inspired wigs and darkly rimmed eyes, to patent leather Doc Martens with the heel cut out. Rigid indigo jumpsuits and padded shouldered jackets were the denim highlights, creating a 70s glam-rock feel. For the full collection, click here.

Balmain

Christophe Decarnin presented a punk-rock look for Balmain this season, as studs and safety pins adorned his signature distressed tees and tight denim pants. Motorcycle jackets – both denim and leather versions – were decked out with patches and a swirling print and bleach splash washes were used for some key denim pieces.

Anglomania by Vivienne Westwood

Disheveled, eccentric and a little bit trashy was the look that Vivienne Westwood sent down the runway for S/S 11. Her famous bustiers looked fresh teamed with mud-washed and paint splashed worker jeans, and hand-customized and patched double denim looks had a distinct ‘turn on, tune in, drop out’ look.

Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten’s muse was “a handsome woman”, one who makes bold statements with simple clothes – perhaps borrowing from her boyfriend, adding a bit of her weekend wardrobe, and mixing in a few pieces from her special occasion reserve. Denim highlights included ombred wide-legged jeans. A bit disheveled, boxy, layered and slouchy – yet all so effortlessly elegant – the handsome woman has never looked so sexy.

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney presented a minimalist collection this season with boxy and clean denim tunics and shifts sitting alongside masculine tailoring. A punchy citrus print injected vivacity into the serene, sophisticated looks, and was used for boxy separates, midi dresses and a short shift. For the full collection, click here.
