Paris Fashion Week 2016

July 05, 2016


During one of the busiest weeks Paris has all year, we went to see what a few brands had in store for their Spring/Summer 2017 collections. Our first stop was Maison Margiela.


Maison Margiela made an interesting point in composition and function, using zipper pockets on the chest of a denim jacket and photo portraits on t shirts. There was also an interesting sense of deconstruction in the outerwear, such as hoodies with reversible sleeves and removable hoods. We’re excited to see just how people will wear their deconstructed Margiela pieces.


 After Maison Margiela, we had a quick bite at our hotel, only to get to more appointments. Our next stop was Balmain. The collection had a color pallet on the softer side with a range from shades of light wash denim, to pantone greens and olives. We were excited in particular to see a beautiful grey chelsea boot with an added gold heel strap (above), giving it a very "Balmain" essence.

After leaving Maison Margiela's beautiful showroom with a more than decent view of the Eiffel Tower, we headed to see what Rick Owens had to offer.  To no surprise the collection delivered eye-catching silhouettes, remaining true to the brand's concrete roots. We couldn't help but notice yet another successful collaboration between adidas and Rick Owens, delivering a runner that reflects his architectural inspiration, yet remains easy to wear in all of it's simplicity. Expect an interesting militant update to the apparel as well. After a few more days and showrooms, It all ended with an immense amount of excitement for what we have to offer our customer's. Stay tuned for more exciting news.
