Trend Report: Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018

Posted on October 6, 2017 by Molly Hannelly

As the final fashion show of Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, and we say goodbye to another exquisite fashion month, it's time to  analyze the styles and trends that topped the charts. From sequins to sunshine, doodles to designs, Paris kept us on the edge of our seats. Let's take a look at the top trends from PFW.

Bohemian

Boho chic was all the rage this season, with designers dressing down their models and bringing back the peasant style. A.P.C.'s peasant dress with denim vest is perfect for perusing the flower market, while Giambattista Valli's floral dress was made for folk dancing. Take the peasant style around town with Vanessa Bruno's gamboge peasant blouse, and Kitx's macrame skirt and blouse are perfect for exploring a quaint town in the south of France. Chloe's rustic dress is perfect for sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and drinking tea as the fire crackles and the trees in the forest sway with the autumn breeze.

Doodles

It looks like designers have been doodling in their notebooks, and on their garments, as models marched down the runway sporting doodles and drawings that belong on the fridge. Christian Dior's doodle t-shirt is paired beautifully with dragon shorts, while Joie's bananas shirt is perfect for writing poetry in a corner cafe. Get close to nature in a tunic like Junya Watanabe's, or go roller skating in Mira Mikati's matching set. Tsumori Chisato's doodle dress and hat is perfect for going to the farmer's market, taste testing homemade honey as the scent of fresh produce and home-cooked meals wafts over to you on a gentle breeze.
