My Two Pence into Paris Fashion Week

:: Emanuel Ungaro ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
To start this little round up of my favourite Paris Fashion Week pieces and collections, I'll begin with the most vibrant, but not all that well-known (well not to me anyway) -Emanuel Ungaro. With fashion week/ month, I find its a great opportunity to discover brands, as well as highlight the excellence of high couture. With this collection, I couldn't help notice the vibrancy, the use of bold colour, the Barbie pinks etc. really caught my eye and I have to point out how much I love the heavy use of pattern. This collection is far from blending into the background and the somewhat 'girliness' of the pieces really tugs at my heart strings - serious heart eyes over here!
:: Hermes ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
Next is one of the most luxurious of brands; Hermes. I feel with this label that its best never to look at the price of things, because even the tiniest of items would cost the equivalent of re-mortgaging your house.. well we can all window shop can't we?! This collection though, screams minimalistic (eh look, an oxymoron.. see I do remember something from English language GCSE!) with a feel of a real statement pieces. Though not much colour ran through the collection, the monochrome feel suited the shapes and styles of the pieces shown. On the whole, the simple styles stayed in touch with the high luxury the brand replicates, though minimal, stayed true to Hermes. 
:: Chanel ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
It wouldn't really be Paris Fashion Week if you didn't mention one of the most famous French brands of the modern era, Chanel. This show seemed to be one of the most sorted after, with the whole Airport & Travel theme running through, all Twitter was seemed to throwing up was the words Chanel Airways - this is when you know you've made a statement.. For the line itself, the pieces seem, well quirky is the only word that springs to mind. There seemed to be a lot of tweed influences, with eye catching colours (like shown above) such as royal blues and pinks. In my opinion, there were a lot of pieces I would pick as an individual item, for instance the two piece shown above, I wouldn't necessarily wear it together, but the jacket on its one would work well. It's safe to say, Chanel certainly made an impression... 

:: Moncler Gamme Rouge ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
Lastly is another brand I'm not familiar with, though with a name like Moncler Gamme Rouge its safe to say I think I've found my new favourite named brand.. what a name!. After looking through the collection and looking into the brand, its roots of being a sportswear brand showed definite signs of influences, with trainers being donned throughout. The back drop though seemed a thing of beauty, giving the pieces femininity, complementing the floral patterns of the pieces worn. I have to say, some of the dresses in this collection seem stunning, again as I always seem to say - if only the prices were just tad cheaper...!
