The Best Shows From Paris Fashion Week 2024

Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024 has officially come to an end. Here are some of the best runway shows to remember from it.

 

SCHIAPARELLI

A complete wardrobe of everyday staples – but with the volume turned up to Schiaparelli settings with archetypal ready-to-wear garments – blazers and slacks, double-breasted overcoats, denim shirts, jeans – and instilling them with moments of surreal adornment-inspired by house founder Elsa Schiaparelli.

 

COMME DES GARÇONS

Theatrical and avant-garde silhouettes, with a dash of unkemptness, accompanied by pannier skirts and pompadour wigs.

 

 

BALENCIAGA

Eclectic DIY dresses made from a collage of other garments; faux fur coats, face-shielding sunglasses, blown-up corporate tailoring and references to subculture.

 

VALENTINO

Classic looks, with homage to the house’s haute couture in their intricacy.

 

COURRÈGES

Likened to the geometry of a square-shaped scarf which despite the simplicity of its shape can be contorted into a near-limitless amount of forms

 

GIVENCHY

Givenchy’s FW24 conjured a woman of sensuality and suspense rooted in the archival designs of the house founder, Hubert de Givenchy.

 

HERMÉS

The show saw an impressive setup with gallons of water pouring from the ceiling in a specially built space with a collection inspired by imagining a woman on the move

 

 

 

RICK OWENS

A concrete set emerged from the need for human closeness and intimacy which was heavily reflected in the collection which suggested protection.

 

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

A rich sense of storytelling mixed with design history – extra long sleeves, high collars, strings tied around the body, that paid homage to the brand’s past to inform on the brand’s present and future.

OFF-WHITE

Ib Kamara’s approach for Off-White’s F/W ready-to-wear collection was a set of sleek sophistication that combined beaded trim, and floral patterns, with matching accessories.

CASABLANCA

Renowned for its distinctive style, Casablanca’s collection was inspired by ancient Greek opulence and the ethereal essence of Bjork’s “Venus as a Boy”

LOEWE

A collision of pastoral and utilitarian, that celebrated feminine romance and asserted the friction between form and function.

 

LOUIS VUITTON

Louis Vuitton took the opportunity to take inspiration from their rich archives to create new dual looks that reimagined the brand’s past and current trends.

 

CHANEL

Seasonless dressing was the most prominent in this show with a touch of bohemian styling.

 

CHEN PENG

The Chen Peng Fall/Winter 2024 collection showed the beauty of life by reflecting human feelings through distinctive designs and fleeting moments. scenes.
