Structured sharp shoulders moulded into avant garde shapes, a fondness of bristly tactiles that offer a more contemporary look to the teddy coat, and deconstructed draped dresses – these are just some standout trends spotted at the recent Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020.
Perhaps another trend we saw manifest, if it can even be called a trend, is a sense of humour. Houses such as Thom Browne and Stella McCartney’s collection had a lighthearted uplifting energy that must have conjured more than a couple of smiles when coats and capes sporting cute cartoon animals made their way down the runway. We could feel the cheeky glee spilling out from Issey Miyake’s collection as the finishing look(s) had a slew of contrasting solid-coloured dresses conjoined together like a big inclusive ‘80s party.
