At the conclusion of one of the most crucial fashion events of the year, we can easily guess which brands stood out, attracting everyone’s attention. Among the fashion shows presented during this Paris Fashion week, the Off-white show turned out to be one of the most interesting. Unexpectedly calm compared to the previous ones, the spring 2020 collection by Virgil Abloh showed the most reflective and sober aspect of the designer with shirts, t-shirts, pants and sheath dresses whose streamlined shapes lead to a call to the 90s minimalism.
Even Givenchy appeals to the clean and irresistible charm of the 90s thanks to the British designer Clare Waight Keller who for this season chooses to display a conversation between her personal experience and the heritage of the great French brand.The collection is in fact an harmonious mix between the minimalist New York that he met working for Calvin Klein in the early 90s and the most eccentric tones of Paris fashion, with natural but intense colors, floral patterns, denim and leather looks.
That leather look cannot be dispensed with, Hermès also knows that it has made leather garments the key element of its highly refined collection. The designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski re-elaborates with neutral shades and geometric and essential cuts, the most traditional elements of Hermès without excluding the minimalist atmosphere of the 90s that undeniably continues to inspire many brands. Balenciaga of Gvasalia is a new hymn to the complexity of reality. With a collection based on power dressing and fashion uniforms, the Balenciaga fashion show is the result of a “political” study of contemporary dress codes and a reuse of the most iconic models of the fashion house.
“We looked at pictures of women politicians, of what they wear campaigning. We took this type of tailored daywear dress and tried to make it cool”he said in an interview for Vogue. “The solution is to make them more boxy and cocoon-y, which is quite Balenciaga. So many body types can wear it. Democratic and easy-to-wear volumes.”Last but not least worthy of attention was Valentino’s show. Pier paolo Piccioli has deconstructed the most complex high-fashion volumes that characterize the brand to take the most delicate and simple remains of that: soft and light goergette, airy balloon sleeves, ruffles, shorts, transparencies, fluid fabrics and feathers are the characterizing elements of the spring 2020 proposed by the Italian maison, a triumph of purity and elegance of white interspersed with energetic solid color creations and tropical patterns.
