Paris Fashion Week Septembre 2013: Trends to watch – Parts 3,4,5 and 6: Classic Lines, Ethnic Accents, Minimalist Makeup and Shoulders

Classical Lines:  The silhouettes at the PFW were conventional and straight to the point: simple, flowing, showcasing women’s natural curves (some ruffles at Isabel Marant).  I will sound biased but Eli Saab was once more the winner in this category, in my humble opinion (how humble am I when I pat myself in the back, huh?) .

Sissi’s Notes:

  1. Return of tweed blazers and loose coats at Chanel and Miu-Miu
  2. It is OK to cover up
  3. Go ahead and tuck-in a top with your skirt or pants 😉

African/Middle Eastern/Azteq Accents: Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Valentino showcased lots of non-Western accents in clothing, accessories and hair styles…though I was a little confused at McQueen with ancient Roman gladiator-like outfits…

Sissi’s note: Try the strong middle line hairstyle with braid…so cute! Oh, and open up to other non-western style, very pretty!

Fresh Faced Makeup: the trend was minimalist or simple make up (OK, not at Chanel obviously…).

Sissi’s note: return of the simple eye liner and rouge lips 😉

Pretty Shoulders:  Lots of shoulders out from sleeveless to one shoulder, to sheer lace for a strapless illusion.  Love it!  Oh, of course, legs were to display as well…legs and abs and everything in between.
