The leaves are just beginning to fall and we haven’t even delved into Halloween, but the runways are filled with trends we will see popping up with spring buds.
Givenchy played with the classic roots of the label’s 1960’s start. Riccardo Tisci mixed geometry and metal with airy fabrics to create a light purity that ran through the collection. The models were styled in slick chignons and their makeup was a cocktail of exaggerated points balanced with beige shadows.
Chloe’s runway also utilized metallics. The copper eye was a simple swipe of sparkle that teased the edge of youthful tones without appearing immature. The simplicity of it what speaks to me, but I am not one to rule out flashes of exuberant makeup tactics.
Balenciaga also embraced architectural designs and infused bias cut skirts with handkerchief points. What I love about the hard edge of the reoccurring trend in the collections was that everything moved. The trends were rigid but had a comfortable flow.
It was all reminiscent of Cleopatra. Eye catching lines and sculptural sophistication conveyed strength.
