After sweeping New York, London and Milan with high-octane glam shows, the Spring/Summer 2014 season showcase has finally reached the French capital which has opened its much-awaited bi-annual event Paris Fashion Week (PFW) with fresh ready-to-wear collections.
The young French designer of Asian origin Christine Phung presented a very shimmery elegant line on the first day of the soiree. Based on a pleasant palette of cobalt, white and grey, the sportswear-inspired range included a variety of loose-fitting outfits.
Anthony Vaccarello, the 32-year-old Brussels-born design talent, featured an aggressively sexy collection infused with nautical hints. The line showcased miniskirts with triangular-shaped hems, silver studded geometric cutout dresses and tie-dyed denims.
Simon Gate Jacquemus, the 23-year-old self-taught designer, wrapped up the first day of PFW with his retro-inspired wool and cotton made line. Accentuated with clean and precise cuts as well as plunging necklines, the collection featured hooded miniskirts, polo shirts and short dresses in shades of electric blue, bubblegum pink and white.
