Alexander McQueen

They definitely saved the best for last, as it all kicked off at Paris Fashion Week, literally. Kate Moss attacked a photographer, a moody Kanye got pushed to the FROW sidelines by model Cara Delevingne and Woody Harrelson and Zoolander stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made their debut on the runway at Valentino, oh, and then there was the shows. We had the Balmain Army, dinner at Chanel’s Brasserie and a trip back to the eighties at Saint Laurent… 

Techno Go-Go. It was a ray of technicolour, 1970s-style dream clothes at Balmain and Olivier Rousteing brought his Balmain supermodel Army out in full force.

J’Adore, Christian Dior. Raf Simons brought us man-tailored tweed pantsuits with double-breasted jackets and cropped, cuffed trousers with a nod to heritage in animal prints.

Country Bumpkins. The usual floaty, feminine Chloé girl that we all love made an appearance on the runway as more of a “gentle woman” (as described by creative director Claire Waight Keller). Models walked the runway to a Fleetwood Mac soundtrack wearing gauzy chiffon gowns, négligée silks, trimmed with chantilly lace and worn with bare legs and booties. The looks were completed with harder tweed suits and waistcoats.

A Stella Performance. Nonchalance and long floaty silhouettes were the order of the day at Stella McCartney. Sticking to her no nonsense aesthetic her autumn/winter 2015 collection was an effortless mix of fluid dresses, high-waisted silk trousers and long-haired, faux fur coats.

Return Of The Punk.  Hedi Slimane isn’t afraid to be daring, for Saint Laurent’s autumn/winter 2015 collection models rocked the runway against a screeching punk soundtrack wearing ripped tights, nipple revealing tops and a 1980s attitude.

All Hail… King Karl never disappoints. This season he had us step inside his Parisian Brasserie for Chanel’s autumn/winter 2015 collection where we watched  Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner having drinks at the bar – we so wished we could join in. Models sported slick side-parted hair, heavy eye make-up and black headbands. The collection included traditional tweed ruffled collars and skirts with a nod to flapper fashion in strappy black chiffon dresses.

Blue Steel. This was definitely the show of the season, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller officially announced Zoolander 2 by making a surprise appearance in the show. The two actors walked the runway to the sound of Don’t You Want Me by Human League. Ben wore a black brocade two-piece suit while Owen Wilson was in a slinky blue silk pyjama set.

The Romantics. Sarah Burton brought the romance back for Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2015 collection describing it in three words: “nature, fragility and beauty.” The rose was the major motif – embossed as a pattern on hard, black lacquered leather coats and transformed into big rosettes on dresses.
