Paris Fashion Week: the modern age
Givenchy was set to start at 8pm. Despite our efforts, Riccardo Tisci was apparently not taking any interviews post show this season. The offering for Spring was, however, worth the wait, especially for those, like me, who had been attending shows since the morning. Edgy as always, it was a collection that showed Tisci's special talent for setting off new trends that other labels follow in coming seasons.
Hermes lightened things up with exceptionally delightful prints and colours. There was still the travelling, nomadic theme referenced, but this season Creative Director Christophe Lemaire made the collection much more accessible, updated, fresh and fun. Easy, breezy and very well made overall. The new oversized travel handbag is also an absolute treat and workable for both men and women.
