This is more like it! This is the Nicolas Ghesquière we all know and love. I’m not sure what’s happening, but usually I prefer Fall/Winter collections over Spring/Summer, yet both in this and Celine‘s cases, these are just much-much better.
Parisienne style was the main inspiration, and I think that exactly could be the key element of his success here. I won’t start on how French women dress and style themselves as it’s pretty world wide famous and referenced at this point, lets talk about the fact that how much more suitable to Ghesquiére to think in European inspirations. No offence, I can adore everything, but yes, being European, I’m a bit biased.
The show opened on the softer side and went trough all the way long to the shaper one, started with all this fluid asymmetrical jersey dresses and finished with deconstructed tailoring, mixing the most modern vibes with that undeniable 80s retro feeling. All of them good on their own right, but what puts the icing on the cake is the accessories, hands down.
Not so much the bags, as I think – while the quality must be impeccable – the designer has still been trying to find the next hit. But the shoes. These pointy calf length boots to be exact, which I’m quite sure, will be seen a lot in the near future (I’d love to see on myself, sigh…). Along with those Petite Malle phone cases of course. 🙂
Welcome Nicolas, good to have you back.
Love this collection. Do you love it too?
