Dries Van Noten called upon his former muses and supermodels from the ’90s to be part of his 100th show, altogether making for an extremely diverse runway cast.
As the subject of the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute exhibition this year, Rei Kawakubo delivered a dose of progressive radicalism in the form of exaggerated silhouettes made of various materials at Commes des Garçons—perhaps an inkling of what we can expect at the exhibition?
Nicki Minaj channeled her best representation of Lil’ Kim from the 1999 MTV VMAs with an intentional nip slip as she sat on the front row of Haider Ackermann AW17. Do you buy her Picasso reference?
Our favourite Brit It-girl Cara Delevingne marked her return to PFW (not on the runways, sadly, but as part of the #FROW fash-pack) with a freshly dyed platinum blond bob at Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma show.
Tods celebrated its collaboration with celeb tattoo artist Saira Hunjan with a pop-up in the Paris flagship. The capsule collection features bags and shoes that were inked by the artist—an alternative for those who can’t commit to having permanent art on the skin.
Chanel certainly took home the prize for the most talked about show of PFW, with a range of Chanel-meets-Barbarella looks and a finale that featured a true-sized rocket getting lifted into the air (with a shower of sparks and dry ice in tow for a gasp-inducing effect).
Louis Vuitton took advantage of the Louvre’s off day (Tuesday, incidentally) by presenting a fluid, edgy collection within the most popular art gallery in the world—a fitting way to close Paris Fashion Week with finesse.
