For fall, “Paris produced the perfect elixir for elegant luxury: rich materials, refined tailoring and a sophisticated tone,” said WWD.
While fashion goers took note of the new directions of shape and volume, “Paris didn’t disappoint and confirmed the season’s major trends: the miniskirt, sweater dressing, plaids, leggings and skinny pants,” said Bloomingdale’s Stephanie Solomon, fashion director of women’s ready-to-wear.
Collections from designers such as Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney garnered praise from buyers. Page views during Paris collections coverage topped 40 million for Style.com, the online home of both W and Vogue magazines.
