So the A/W ‘17 Paris Fashion Week has come and gone, with bold new statements from Dior’s first ever female designer Maria Gracia Churi, seductively daring pieces from Balmain and more.
But the runway is only half the fun at fashion week...street style is a big deal too these days. Attendees pull out all the stops and often look like they belong on the catwalk themselves. Here’s a few street styles we are in love with!
Anna Dello Russo in Dior
We start off with Anna Dello Russo, because, why not. We know ADR for her impeccable style and big personality, so it comes at no wonder that she struts the streets of Paris with such confidence. Even the cold can’t get to her.
We love this ensemble from Dior’s latest ready-to-wear S/S17’ collection. Melding sweet and sexy with ruffles and see-through, the iconic slogan straps adds an extra layer of attitude. All of which ADR rocked so hard and gave the outfit more character than it already has, effortlessly.
We can’t help but gush over the cute coat, with cartoon car motifs all over. It is a bold statement for sure and combined with the leather flat cap, gives this androgynous but cheeky style. All of that striking blue hair and porcelain skin comes together to give a unique sort of ‘effortless cute’ that we wish we had.
Aimee Song in Louis Vuitton
Aimee Song is always on point when it comes to fashion, earning herself the reputation she deserves as an online sweetheart, @songofstyle. It comes at no surprise that she graced Paris Fashion Week in this bohemian chic outfit by Louis Vuitton. If there should be one person who could mix endless prints on prints and still look insane, it’s Aimee Song.
Olga Karput in dreamy pastels
Founder of Moscow concept store and cafe Kuznetshy Most 20, Olga Karput is seen on the streets of Paris in dreamy pastels that complements her platinum blonde hair. This Russian doll almost seems out of place when placed in the cold biting winter Paris offers, but she walks the streets with such softness and androgynous charm. So much so that we can’t help but fall in love with her style.
Aimee Song in Dior
Isn’t that the lovely Aimee Song again, this time round dressed in a little black see-through with silver embellishment dress by Dior. It’s beyond us how she pulls off everything but we sure can learn a thing or two from her. She keeps it chic and simple, elevated with a little peek from her fishnet socks tucked underneath her glossy leather boots.
Oriental elegance in red
So fittingly appropriate to don on this red jumpsuit for Shiatzy Chen’s show, Coco Chanel of Taiwan. Elegant and striking with something blue, the overalls accentuate her slender frame against her fair skin. She keeps it simple and sophisticated, with hair carefully tucked behind her ear to show off her earring. Top it all off with a petite hand-carry bag in teal that complements her entire outfit. Sometimes, less is indeed more.
All chrome everything
Yes Paris may be raining, but definitely not on anyone’s parade. Pairing an all-chrome outfit with a stylish umbrella just might be a fun thing to do. Like this detailed metallic v-neck maxi with neck cuff that ends almost at her ankle, leaving a little peak of skin that helps to elongate. We love the pair of chrome sneakers, it almost looks like they’re made for this outfit specifically. Drape a long overcoat and you’re fashion week ready.
