Paris Fashion Week Favourites: AW17

As I said in my last post, I am honestly impressed with my dedication to covering every major city on my blog this season during fashion month and I've really enjoyed doing it. I proclaimed that Milan had overtaken New York as my favourite city this season, but the Paris AW17 collections completely stole my heart. So, to wrap up fashion month with my final favourites post of AW17, here are my Paris Fashion Week highlights:

As I sat flicking through the images of Anthony Vaccarello's second collection for Saint Laurent during a tutorial at university, I struggled to keep my reactions to the various awe-inducing looks inaudible. Though the large amount of day-appropriate looks in the collection is quite unexpected, the dark, high-octane glamour associated with the brand is still retained (I mean, who are you if you didn't see those bedazzling boots on Instagram?). My favourite looks are those that bridge the gap between more pared-down daywear and extravagant eveningwear, including the statement frilled mini skirts and the deep v-neck blouses, as well as the shearling and leather outerwear. 

Milan Fashion Week Favourites: AW17

This season marks my first post on Milan Fashion Week, though I always follow the shows I usually end up becoming too busy to have time to blog about them. However, I was determined to write about my favourites collections from each major city for AW17 and I'm impressed by my own time management which has allowed me to do so alongside researching for my final major project. Designers who show at Milan know how to stage amazingly extravagant runway shows, making it that much harder to select favourites, but these are the collections that stood out for me this season:

I couldn't not include Fendi in my favourites this season purely because of those statement-making red over-the-knee boots which won me over upon first look. Paired with crisp tailoring and sheer flowing skirts and dresses, the footwear becomes less Pretty Woman-esque and more chic with a side of sass. My favourite look was the shirt dress and blazer worn by Bella Hadid but there's definitely something to be said for the check-print suiting that opened the show too, which seems set to be a huge trend for AW17.
