3 Lust-Worthy Outfits From Legendary Designers At Paris Fashion Week ’17

Naaila Khan

The City of Lights played host to the grand finale of the Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’17 and while the whole Vogue editors versus bloggers might’ve left a bad taste in our mouths, the lineup of the most legendary designers on the runway really did salvage the situation.

What ensued was a steady stream of lust-worthy couture on display for your eyes to dig into and your heart to covet. So what does it matter really? “We’ll always have Paris,” right? 

Scroll through the galleries below to ogle the outfits that will, undoubtedly, go down in history!

DAY 1

1/8 ELIE SAAB

Quite contrary to his usual style, the Lebanese designer’s sartorial gifts to the world explored a rare, dark moment at the spring show. The 54-piece collection took off into the galaxies with starry motifs and vivid taroc-like colors. Cosmic rebellion was unleashed upon the world. 

DAY 2

2/8 CÉLINE

Philo’s show could might as well have been an ode to Céline purists what with the copious amounts of tailored jackets and draped dresses with bursts of eccentricities like shocks of neon, mismatched shoes and graphic cut outs to also please new age fans. 

3/8 GIVENCHY

Riccardo Tisci pleased his celebrity-packed front row (Courtney Love, Gigi Hadid, Zayn Malik, Kim Kardashian) with super wearable and super printed pieces of agate-print slip dresses layered over long tanks, sexy black pantsuits and giant agate pendants on tortoiseshell chains; not exactly synonymous with sunny weather but gorgeous nonetheless. 

DAY 3

4/8 HERMÈS

Creative Director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski seems to currently be obsessed with calf-length and bias cuts for dresses and skirts; while her vision this season was colour – shades of pink pastels on dresses and sporty separates made of leather, suede and cashmere, sum up the collection. 

5/8 ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

Inspired by the Shetlnd Isles in Scotland where Sarah Burton flew her team down last summer for research, McQueen’s collection translated to long, slinky dress with high bodices, leg-of-mutton-sleeved dresses, plaid pantsuits and punky kilts. Most completely wearable by themselves, and some standout pieces that would be a dream to style. 

DAY 4

6/8 CHANEL

Karl Lagerfeld might not be a child of the millennial age, but he sure knows how to take a dig at the predominance of technology in our lives today. The Chanel Data Center was dedicated to wires, cables, and black data boxes, but in the most well, Chanel way. Robots wearing tweed suits, neon collage prints and baseball caps, and chic whites with ruffles and lace dominated the computer server room/runway. 

DAY 5

7/8 LOUIS VUITTON

The way Nicolas Ghesquière sees it, we’re all going to be very into the 80s next summer – daring bias-cut dresses and super-slim trousers, sequins, strong shoulders, power suiting and layered sheer paneling – some “hot bourgeois”, as Vogue describes it, is coming our way. 

8/8 MIU MIU

Against a vibrant wood backdrop of a sunny day at the beach, Miu Miu’s seaside-inspired collection was full of 1950s style bathing bombshells in glam florals, printed bikinis, happy coats, and gloriously girly mink robes. Also not to be missed: candy flip-flops and plastic bathing caps festooned with flowers. Ask Miuccia Prada right now, and she’ll probably tell you life’s a beach.
