I found choosing the winner of the H&M Design Award very difficult, because the calibre of the finalists is up there with the best in fashion.” Kate Bosworth.

A tribute to Mr Valentino, from Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli

With a thoughtful combination of soft lights and sombre colors, Valentino set their Autumn/Winter 2016 Menswear fashion collection in the middle of a castle-like decor, much to the delight of the Parisian audience.

The Valentino Autumn/Winter 2016 offering, which was broadcast online as well, offers the comfort and coolness sought by modern men. In Paris, a tailored camel coat offered a black tie and dye effect, a military-inspired outer piece was embellished with crystal ornaments, while oversized trench came with leather contrasting straps.

Mr Valentino himself was fond of travel. Whether he was going up North, looking for the wild nature of the East or getting some rest in the South, he always managed to travel smart, combining his ensembles to the then-exotic location. From the ethnic poncho to the herringbone tailored pieces and from the patent leather trench coat to the now-famous studded finishes of the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli paid tribute to the founder of the Italian established house with elegance. In other terms: Go Valentino.

Kim Jones’ Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2016 celebrated Paris

There’s a saying we use in French when we want to cheer our sport teams, which is “Allez les Bleus !” – which can literally be translated as “Go, Blue team!”. Yes, blue is the main colour we use to support the country, the symbols and the overall culture. Indeed, it’s no wonder that navy blue hues were omnipresent in Kim Jones’ Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 collection, as the designer paid a tribute to the city of Paris, he thoughtfully took on some of the strongest symbols from the long-established luxury house and its origins.

For the menswear Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, Louis Vuitton remained faithful to the DNA of their house: taking on the escape-inspired recurring theme, Kim Jones displayed many bérets, military outfits, wool coats and printed jackets, combined with tailored navy trousers and polished smart shoes. As an illustration, the voyage invitation was held between the hands of models, carrying monogramed trunks and suitcases, reminding us of the brands ever-lasting heritage.

Edgy with a grain of sexy, Kim Jones’ Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear Autumn/Winter fashion collection followed a musically enchanted Spring/Summer 2016 offering: seasons may ensue but Jones remains the same.
