Falling In Love With Paris Fashion Week Again

A week of fashion, in such a beautiful city, the city of love. What more could a girl want?!

Paris fashion week, once again, outstanding looks blessed us on the runway this year have been breathtakingly gorgeous, and not to mention the street style we have been seeing all over social media, got us drooling for days!

We saw a lot of colour on the runway this year, with a combination of different textures, fabrics and patterns to create contrasting looks that were deviating from the norm.

This has been creating staple looks differentiating each designer from the next.

There were so many shows that we absolutely loved, including Louis Vuitton SS18, Givenchy,  Balmain, which was a dream, as always, with local NZ gal, Georgia Fowler, always a pleasure watching that girl do her thang. Of course, the amazing Saint Laurent open-air extravaganza under the Eiffel Tower and Chanel with the beautiful backdrop of six waterfalls! We also loved the Celine women this year on the runway, the caped trench coats, and office chic looks, the beautiful browns and pastel colours used throughout had us dreaming. Just to name a few, we could be here forever speeling about all the amazing pieces and looks that were shown at Paris this year.

How about Balenciaga models wearing 10cm platform Crocs though, kinda loved it, but does this really make Crocs okay?! I don’t think everyone will be rushing out to own a pair of these babies anytime soon…

And we cannot forget, one of the main topics of any fashion week around the world, street style. The street style at Paris Fashion week this year, we’re seeing a lot of Autumn colours coming into the mix, which are showing very prominent in some of the most outstanding looks that we have come across. These colours were also emerging on the runway, which was definitely a positive for us, we love some warm Autumn colours here at TBC.

 

We always love a good fashion week for a bit of inspo, especially in the change of seasons and when looking for new ways to chuck together a simple but impressive outfit. Also, of course buying inspiration for the new looks that we have constantly coming your way! Get excited girls, we have a lot of neat new looks coming! Keep them eyes peeled!

Parisian Confidence

There is something ridiculously romantic about Paris. The beautiful old buildings. The streets lined with boutique florists and bouquets of baguettes. Not to mention the population of French Bulldogs…. but as we were sitting on the street inhaling our crepes, the main thing that caught my attention was the Parisian Women. Timelessly classic, basket bag in hand and walking with confidence. As we sat there, we noticed that there was one thing all the French Women strolling past us seemed to have in common.

They were attractive no doubt, but they walked with purpose. Acting like they had woken up looking effortlessly chic, when in fact upon closer inspection their make up said otherwise. A Parisian Woman could be have having an awful day, however she’s not going to show you that. Instead making you want to dress like her, look like her and maybe even be her. Our model Sasha in the Malaia Dress encapsulates this feeling so well.

While American Celebrities often think revealing outfits that leave little to the imagination may be the key to sexiness, the French Women prefer to play with nonchalance, revealing enough to create the desire and wanting of more. You can find our interpretations of this style here, here and here. The Parisian Women, glowing with confident attitude will give you a subtle smile, look away and walk off knowing you’ll be left gazing.

Next time you feel like you need a little boost of confidence – follow the Parisian way. Mess your hair a little, apply your favourite red lipstick and walk tall. Look and act confident, and feeling confident will follow.
