Paris Fashion Week Day 8

I can't believe Paris Fashion Week is already over! I had such an amazing time in Paris and am going back to LA more inspired than ever. This PFW, I saw so many amazing shows and presentations by many of my favorite designers. I loved learning the inspiration behind so many collections and incorporating a lot of the trends I saw into my own wardrobe.

Many designers took archived pieces and reinvented them for modern day. Statement t-shirts with logos or sayings were huge along with feminine pieces mixed with masculine details. Sequins, mesh and embellishment also were key trends shown throughout. I love seeing how different designer's interpret different trends for Spring.

On my last day, I was happy to not have a super busy schedule. I shot some exciting projects (stay tuned!) and was able to view the collections of three more amazing brands before I headed home.

Check out everything I did on my final day of Paris Fashion Week below:

Sonia Rykiel Presentation:

I started my final day of PFW at the Sonia Rykiel presentation. Sonia is a french designer known as the “Queen of Knits”. I was excited to see how she incorporated knitwear into her Spring collection.

Her collection this year explored the essence of femininity. She was drawn to the symbol of the oyster and the beauty of the pearl. I loved how fresh water pearls were mixed into the collection and on the necklines. It added a beautiful touch to her knitwear. The collection included more masculine tailoring and the idea of work-wear suits. I loved the two piece outfits and sheer shimmering pieces. Sonia also introduced a new bag called the “Oyster Bag”. It is a cotton drill box bag inspired by fishing, so cute!

Although the collection isn't available until next season, here are my current favorites that are available now:

Flared Skirt

Jacquard-Knit Sweater

Paneled Striped Wool Sweater



What I Wore:

On my final day of PFW, I was feeling inspired by past presentations. I loved how many designer's paired feminine pieces with bold, contrasting prints. I loved this brocade dress by Cinq à Sept and paired it with a simple slip dress. It was a pretty comfortable outfit for running around in and added the boots to dress it down. The look could easily go from day to night too with nude heels.

Shop my look below:

Dress: JETSET DIARIES

Coat: CINQ À SEPT

Boots: COLE HAAN

Sunglasses: SMOKE X MIRRORS


Lanvin Presentation:

My next presentation of the day was Lanvin. This was Olivier Lapidus's first collection as Artistic Director of the brand. He took inspiration from the fashion house’s very essence but more modern for the 21st century, very wearable.

He based the collection's color palette off of Jeanne Lanvin’s favorite colors (green, ruby, nude, pale blue, gold). I loved the contemporary look of the collection. The geometric cuts, kimono sleeves, bows and clovers were some of my favorite details. “LANVIN” and “JL” prints in art deco font were on bags and sprinkled into the collection. I was obsessed with the handbags with “LANVIN” written on them in large font.

Speaking of bags, Lavin introduced a new line of bags including a city bag that can be a backpack or shoulder bag. The collection also had many pieces of jewelry: necklaces, chokers, earrings, bracelets in pale gold or ruthenium. The pieces were inspired by Jeanne Lanvin's favorite elements: daisies, clovers and the 1930's.

Although the collection isn't available until next season, here are my current favorites that are available now:

Chain-Strap Leather Combat Boots

Ruffle Silk & Lace Blouse

So Lanvin Embossed Textured Bag

Kenzo Presentation:

I concluded fashion week with one last presentation, KENZO! I love how fun their clothes are and how their collections always tell some sort of story. KENZO always has super unique prints and innovative silhouettes.

The collection this year took archived pieces and reworked them in summer staples, including swimwear and Hawaiian shirts but with a Japanese touch. Kimono details were seen throughout the collection and I loved how the style was reworked with different fabrics. Denim was also included within the collection. I loved the high-waisted jeans and denim bralettes to match. KENZO also brought back vintage prints and I was obsessed with the tiger and bamboo print, it is so cute!

It was inspiring to view a collection that brought back so many achieved pieces and prints but also introduced new concepts such as swimwear and denim which KENZO has never done.

Although the collection isn't available until next season, here are my current favorites that are available now:

Mini Top Handle Bag

Cropped Down Jacket

Tiger Appliquéd T-Shirt

    I wish I had run into you in Paris, Brittany! I had met you a couple of times back in LA, but had moved since I saw you at Schutz store in Beverly Hills. I didn’t go to these shows, but actually love these designers. I love your brocade coat and slip dress! Maybe I’ll run into you again in another city during fashion week on another season. I hope you and your family are well babe. :)
