Afternoon. Fancy a bit of street style from Paris Fashion Week?
‘Course you do.
**TREND SPOTTED KLAXON ** #1 – BIT OF A DRAG
Trousers OR coats (take your pick) trailing the floor. Don’t get them hemmed just let them drag across the ground with the nonchalance of a woman who makes so much dollar she can dry clean everything and never has to run for the bus.
Try and avoid tripping on your platforms, A&E is no fun on a Friday night, ladies!
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #2 – GOING TO THE MAILBOX FOR YOUR PAPER
After I predicted the rise of the Arthur Dent ‘Dressing Gown / Coat’ back in November, I’m pleased to see Les Femmes de Paris taking it to heart. It’s the logical progression from the outdoor pyjama trend, after all.
I would team a dressing gown coat with the (above) ‘I have given up’ t-shirt for that signed-off-work-due-to-depression-chic. Which, if it isn’t a look already, bloody well should be.
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #3 ME AND MY (EYE)SHADOW
Think these gals have just come from a show, but they clearly got the make up memo, because blue eyeshadow is back for 2016!
You may scoff now but you’ll be doing the Pat Butcher / Bladerunner look yourself before you know it.
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #4 – TICK TOCK (YOU DON’T STOP)
Sorry to have you tell you this. But here is the undeniable evidence. 😦
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #5 COAT OF
MANY NEW COLOUR S
The Pink Coat is dead. Murdered then buried in a shallow grave by…
The Yellow Coat. :-0
Goddamnit. Ebay your pink coat now, people **THIS IS NOT A DRILL**
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #6 – BIT OF SKIRT
Interesting one this, some sort of statement skirt over, a pair of trews.
Looks easy enough. Fringing or lace, it’s all good, yo.
**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #7 – FLASHBACK à Londres
Following on from London’s rampant just-discharged-from-hospital-gown trend, this is a fresh French twist.
Props to this woman, why fork out for a brand new, on trend, back-draft top when you can achieve the look by getting wearing your boyfriend’s shirt back to front?
**BEST KNITWEAR KLAXON** – WIZARD’S SLEEVE
This was my favourite jumper of the week. Hands down.
Imagine having the kudos of wearing THE best piece of knitwear to fashion week?
Oh the smugness!
but then…wait a minute…
But good to know this kind of thing even happens to the fashion elite.
Love that woman in the Citroen behind has totally clocked it and is ringing her mate to tell her. Lolz.
Bet the pair met up and had a right laugh about it after.
Hope you enjoyed my picks.
Is it just me though, or did Paris seem like a real rag bag of make-it-up-as-you-go-along arbitrariness compared to the cool togetherness of London?
Maybe I’m biased but as we all know, London Girls Do It Better. (Someone pls make this into bumper sticker.)
Let me know what you think and which new trend you’ll be trying in the comments section.
Thanks for reading. And Happy Fri-yay!
