What’s New

Well, a lot actually. Some of the New York favourites have migrated to Paris with sports brand Lacoste showing on September 27 and Altuzarra on the 30th.

 

Natacha Ramsay Levi presents her first collection for Chloe and we look forward to seeing how she injects streetwise Parisian attitude to the label associated with easy-boho romance. Meanwhile Clare Waight Keller moved over from Chloe to Givenchy as the new Artistic Director, first female to hold that role. Carven is also going through a makeover with Serge Ruffieux presenting his first ready-to-wear collection for the house and over at Lanvin, Olivier Lapidusis getting ready for his debut.

 

Keep an eye out on the shoes during the Off-White show on September 28 as they unveil their collaboration with Jimmy Choo.

 

For the week, Valentino has set up an I Love Spike pop-up at Hotel Costes to celebrate Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike bag through a new accessories collection. Want to get your hands on one of them? Post a selfie of yourself in the store to be in with a chance of winning your very own limited edition piece.

 

 

Location, Location, Location

 

Not many cities can rival Paris’s historical locations that can overshadow even the boldest of presentations. Tune in on September 25 for Jacquemus who will showcase his collection at Picasso Museum in the Marais district.

 

Louis Vuitton is back at the Louvre for SS18 but we are yet to learn which part of the museum will hold the runway show.

 

 

Middle East In Paris

Elie Saab continues to be one of the highlights during Paris Fashion Week, but you should also note Rami Al Ali showcasing his seventh pret-a-porter collection from September 29. Fashion Forward also returns for a third time with a selection of regional designers, including Amira Haroon, from September 29 to October 2.
