We saw them in Milan (albeit at Fila), but I’m starting to think that after the Saint Laurent show sweatbands outside of the gym might seriously become a thing. If they do I hope people don’t wear them across the forehead, a headband trend from a few years ago that still feels very played out. I would hope for something fresher from Saint Laurent!
Like at Dolce & Gabbana and other shows in the last few weeks, Gucci did not have one unifying beauty look, but this intense black eye one was certainly a standout. Personally I’m not a fan of anything that looks like I was punched in the face, but black intense eye looks were featured prominently throughout the shows.
The Dior show was dance-inspired and dancers opened the show and performed throughout, making it easily one of the most Instagrammed shows thus far. The inspiration was not only obvious in the actual clothing, but in the beauty looks. Skin was bare and hair out of the face, but bold black eyeliner brought the drama.
Jacquemus was one of Paris’ most buzzed about shows. The beauty looks were fresh and vibrant with a hint of romanticism, continuing a trend we saw emerge in Milan. Personally though all I could focus on were the handbags!
Marine Serre is another designer to watch. Though she’s new to the scene (she made her debut in February) she’s already collaborated with big name brands like Nike, which in this age of athleisure says a lot. Any women with natural curls will also be happy to note that she continued a trend of embracing hair texture (Ouidad is a great line for help with this).
