The traditional Fashion Week in Paris happened between February 28 and March 8, 2017, with a lot of new and old participations of brands that presented their 2017/2018 fall-winter collections. Important names and standout moments, the season was full of references, like the 60’s futuristic and the 80’s controversial trends that made our minds blow. From Courrèges to Louis Vuitton, there were big moments in one of the most important weeks to the fashion universe, check them out.

The show of Yves Saint Laurent brought a lot of reminders of the 80’s with big shoulder pads, mini dresses, a lot of leather, glitter and a little bit of vinyl fabric. We also had another surprise with sparkly boots, the most wanted item of the week.

We all know Chanel never disappoints, being the most awaited show of the week. Besides the traditional tweed, shining boots and astronauts patterns were shown on the catwalk, but the biggest surprise was the scenario produced at the Grand Palais, with a giant white rocket and the perfect soundtrack playing Rocket Man, by Elton John.

On the Valentino catwalk, the creative director Piccioli worked with two different themes, the Victorian Era and the Memphis Movement of the late 70’s and early 80’s. Monochromatic dresses go along with combat heavy boots, and the high neck and long sleeves bring out the references.

The Louvre Museum opened their central atrium, the glass pyramid also known as Cour Marly, for the first time for a fashion show. Nobody but Louis Vuitton could shut down the week with such style. Jackets, glitter, fur and a wool denim combined with boots, that break the feminine style of some looks, showed us a realistic and usable  clothing design for the daily basis, a trademark of Ghesquiere’s creations, the LV creative director.
