#PFW: see now buy now

 

In the second instalment of our see-now-buy-now shopping list at Paris Fashion Week, see who and what has made the grade when it comes to our imaginary and premature seasonal trolley dash.

Chloé

There are certain brands for whom the idea of a “girl” – or “woman” – really does exist. And Chloe is one of them. Clare Waight Keller’s girl is bohemian through and through and whatever seasonal inspiration reference is added, her fashion heart is very much anchored in the Seventies. Next season, the Chloe girl’s wardrobe is comprised of more of those classic wispy-wafty dresses she loves so much (and the brand does so well) with some great jackets and ponchos in the mix too. The shape of the latter was very much echoed in the dresses, and they were the personification of rock ‘n’ roll whimsical. An easy win.

Isabel Marant

Marant, too, has a “woman” but she’s given her a new lease of life: the Eighties. There was a punk mentality to the collection – high hair, high waists, high hems; fishnet tights, masculine oversized coats; red and black and plaid. There was attitude but it wasn’t anything to do with that boho train of thought that has so consistently been her style signature. It was tough. It was cool and it was refreshing. To keep a little girly charm there came lace collars that peeked out from under slouchy knits. The outerwear here was the stuff that will top next season’s shopping lists.

Dior

There comes a time in every girl/woman’s life when she realises: tailoring! Jackets! Looking smart as opposed to dishevelled and cool. And if that moment is yet to hit, then the Dior Autumn/Winter 2016 collection should have a helping hand in making that conclusion come sooner. And if you’re still a little way off that, then the accessories will make the ideal distraction – one should wear all their (well, Dior’s) bags at a time. They come as enlarged wallets with multiple pockets and were supremely covetable with it. Even if you’re organised, maybe this is the time to let go and be chaotic – the perfect excuse for Dior’s arm candy to sort you out.

Vetements

It’s the reason why half the fashion pack will have landed in Paris a good few days earlier than they usually do – there’s no getting away from the cult, the clique, the movement that is: Vetements. A brand that will by now have divided fashion opinions – are you Team Vetements or no? – from customers to press. But if the former, then it’s likely that those slogan Ts and socks will be at the top of your shopping list: instant street style fodder and currently the ultimate piece of conspicuous consumption. The dresses, though, and the rose-embroidered menswear shirt and trousers win our vote.

Balmain

The cult of Balmain knows no limits. Even standing outside the show is akin to waiting, one presumes, for the likes of Justin Bieber to arrive. It causes hysteria. Billowing trousers – which Rousteing has managed to coin over the last few seasons – this time with undulating ruffles, are likely to be firm favourites with die-hard fans, as will the elaborately embroidered gold and black sculpted tops. They say “grand.” And that’s what Balmain is about.

Rick Owens

Let’s be honest. You’re either in the Rick Owens club or not. It’s an acquired taste – but those who like it, really like it. How many strapless dresses they own that come with a head-full of candy floss is an intriguing question to float out there. Maybe that’s not going to be your entry point. But a great coat with sheer toothpaste green panelling surely is.

Lutz Huelle

It’s safe to say that earrings have been having a moment – a resurgence. They’ve become integral to looks and a quick fix to update your own style into a new season. But they got a bigger moment on the Lutz catwalk – huge chainmail-looking triangles dangling down and splaying out onto the shoulder. Supersized, they looked great – the only question is: how heavy will they be to wear?

Paco Rabanne

Paco Rabanne's Julien Dossena has caused a lot of ink to flow lately with his "anatomical" tailoring that embraces the body in an effortless and minimalistic manner and his collections so far have been praised by media and buyers. This season was no different as Dossena's Fall/Winter 2016-17 collection was all about sharp and sophisticated looks styled in an out-of-space way. Standout pieces include a range of duvet skirts (yes, luxury is comfortable), as well as metal mesh and silk dresses adorned with flower prints – and this black Satin bomber jacket with fiery flame patches, it is to die for!

Carven

Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud's Carven girls where on a mission to Kathmandu this season. The capital of Nepal inspired the designer-duo for their biker- and mountain-wear pieces that subtly clashed with youthful, slightly girly-girly and urban outfits. Our favorites? The trim shearling moto jackets and coats, a zipped turtleneck with 80s flavored sci-fi prints, and the many shiny tapered PVC pants (a must this season).
