The Best 5 things about Paris Fashion Week SS15 Give Me Five

Goodbye Paris. Models, voguistas, trend setters and curious leave.

The 9 days of Paris fashion shows end. It 's time to take breath, gather our thoughts and see what remains in our hearts and in our eyes. We did it and this is our top 5 among the collections presented.



In a magical forest, on a carpet of moss, designed by the Argentine Alexandra Keyayoglou, Dries Van Noten brings poetry on the catwalk. Billowing dresses in chiffon, organza, brocade, silk transform the models into modern Ophelia, languidly stretched out on a lawn. The protagonist of the most famous work of John Everett Millais becomes a sensual hippie that mixes opulence with wisdom and hints of sportswear. A magical and rarefied atmosphere surrounds jodhpour pants, layering of colors, ties patterns, the long refined dresses. Dries Van Noten recreates a dream from which it is a shame to wake up. 



Sun, lines and "cheesy French pop." The new collection of Simon Porte, the designer of Jacquemus, is as follows: fresh, ironic and pop. Entitled "Les Parasols de Marseille", every piece is an adaptation of an umbrella, in pink, yellow and blue. The result is a series of 3-dimensional, sculptural shapes of tissues, that reinterpret and deconstruct the memories of Ports' holidays in the south of France: poplin jackets, mini trickled down the sides that reveal the striped bikini, fluffy white pants. "I do not create clothes, I create stories," Mr Jacquemus often repeated, this time, leads us between sun loungers and parasols, among the works of a collection that confirms his talent. A curiosity? To celebrate the new collection Another magazine has commissioned to the artist Eleanor Macnairwhose three colorful dolls in Play-Doh. 



Karl Lagerfeld likes to do things big. Every season is an opportunity for a new event ever greater, ever more extraordinary. This time recreates a typical Parisian street, "Boulevard Chanel", inside the Grand Palais, where the cry of "Make Chanel, not War!", Parading a real demonstration in '68 style. Guided by Cara Delevingne models contest placards and chant slogans like "Ladies First", "Tweed is better than Tweet." Kaiser Karl brings the feminist cause in the catwalk, adhering to the ONU campaign "for He She", which invites men to fight to defend the rights of women.

"I thought it was fun to make a demonstration about a subject I can very well adapt to", says the designer, and continues, "I do not see why every human being is not on the same level, especially in my work."

Chanel hits the road and brings with itself  not only an event destined to bounce back from a social nework to another, but above all, one of the finest collections presented in recent years. It 's a tribute to women of any size and taste: tweed, color stains, military suits, classic suits, embroidery, ruffles. 




Intense, feminine, sophisticated. Alessandro Dell'Acqua, creative director of Rochas, designs a collection poised between virginal shyness and sensuality. Powder, white, gold and black caress the long dresses in organza, small blouses, tunics overlapped. In continuous game of balance, elegance rarefied lives with sporty details, the transparency with lace, delicate fabrics with shoes spectacular, decorated with sequins and fringe, wearing eclusivamente with sock, preferably white. Rochas wins the hearts of spectators and of hundreds of girls fashion. And even Vogue America applauds. 


At the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, while Nini Raviolette sings "Suis-Je Normale", Christophe Lemaire continues his search for the perfect piece. No excess, no fuss, the clothes are talking. And everyone from perfect outerwear, shirts and shirt, available in a monochrome palette, cry the dramatic elegance of normality. The designer remains true to himself, but evolving, creating collections ever more convincing. Ended the experience with Hermes, Lemaire is free to be guided by his own determination, getting the credit for transforming the minimalism in seductive femininity.
