Bonjour from Paris Fashion Week! The biggest and latest fashion event for spring and summer 2014 has just ended but everyone is still buzzing about the designers, their haute couture, and the many celebrities that came to see the shows. Check out the style and hair highlights of this year’s spring/summer collection.
Key Paris Spring / Summer Style Trends
Graffiti & Bold Artwork
A key trend for this spring/summer fashion is obviously inspired by bold art and graffiti. As seen on the runways of Céline, Prada, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent.
White sheer and delicate embroidery are here to stay and are definite must-haves this season. If you need more inspiration, check out the collections of Balenciaga, Valentino, Ellie Saab, Calvin Klein and Nina Ricci.
Shimmery lamé, paillette, and sequins are IN this season. If the collections of Tom Ford, Versace, and Saint Laurent don’t make you want to shine like a diamond then nothing else will.
Nautical & Jungle Florals
Nautical and jungle florals were quite common in the runway this season. There were a lot of muted colours and exotic prints that exude fun and playfulness.
Key Paris Spring / Summer 2014 Hair Trends
Couture hair need not be weird and over the top. Try these wearable hair trends we spied on the runway.
Colour blocking is no longer limited to handbags and clothes. This season, two-tone tresses are a hit. If you have light colored hair, dye the ends with bright blue, purple, or green. If you have dark colored hair, bleach the ends blond or platinum.
A regular on the runway in the Paris show, the quiff is an interesting look. A quiff is a pompadour hairstyle that’s incorporated with a flattop, and a Mohawk in one. Although this hairstyle can be really tricky to do, the results are well-worth the effort.
Paris fashion week would not be complete without celebrity guests spotted in the front row. Kim Kardashian was sighted at Stéphane Rolland’s Haute Couture show and also spotted with her fiancé, Kanye West, at the Givenchy show. Kate Bosworth and hubby looked sweet at the Dior show, while the Chanel show was also filled with celebrities including Michelle Rodriquez, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, and Tilda Swinton.
