Hosting some of the biggest and oldest design houses in the world, Paris’s ready-to-wear offering was as impressive as it was vast. The A/W ’14 collections certainly didn’t disappoint in terms of variety, presenting directional colour palettes and statement dresses. As seen at London and Milan, a common trend was bright colours popping out from greys, blacks and subdued Autumn shades, creating a spectrum suited to many tastes and styles. Evening wear was a glamorous mix of silky maxi-dresses with dramatic splits and plunging necklines, complemented with statement minis and a host of cool jumpsuits.

 

 

The Chanel’s couture supermarket catwalk was a personal highlight from the week (who wouldn’t love a cupboard full of Chanel groceries?!) and we were also excited to see that some of our favourite colours and styles will be strong next season. We have highlighted some notable key pieces and trends from the week here:

 

BERRY COLOURS

 

Berry shades were often seen with teal throughout many collections. A more vibrant take on burgundy that has been present for the past few winters, it creates a dramatic impact for evening looks. Elie Saab favoured merlot maxis whilst Giambattista Valli’s collection never ventured below the knee. Look out for more berry colours hitting the GC site next season.

 

MIDNIGHT BLUE

 

Lanvin’s dark and mysterious collection featured midnight blue looks from start to finish, we particularly loved the elegant, silky maxi dresses. Stella McCartney contrasted midnight blues and cobalt in this draping mini dress. Shop midnight blue and cobalt styles now.

 

TROPICAL CORAL

 

Not a colour you would expect to see in a winter collection, tropical coral has been leaping from the catwalks, contrasting with conservative seasonal shades. It was seen amongst greys, whites and
blacks at Victor & Rolf and as part of a bright collection at Christian Dior. Shop tropical and light coral styles.

 

THIGH HIGH SPLITS

 

Dramatic, thigh high splits are ready to make a statement next season. Seen on many styles at Elie Saab and at John Galliano, you can get the look with our maxi styles here.
