Straight From The Runway

With Paris Fashion Week coming to a close, we have taken an interest in two of our most acclaimed designers, Stella McCartney and Saint Laurent. Just as we have seen in other Spring 2014 runway show’s this season, these two designers who both showed on the same day, couldn’t be more different in their entire presentation.

Star-Studded Catwalk

Stella McCartney made quite the statement with her collection by exemplifying an energetic ode to femininity with a contemporary twist.  The show was confident with models strutting the runway in fluid lace-detailed dresses that fell to the hip effortlessly, sheer skirts that flashed a little thigh and plunging necklines that provided the perfect amount of sex appeal. “No matter what you wear from Stella – whether it’s a dress or a tracksuit – you feel a sense of elegance without having to try,” said Cara Delevgine, who walked in the show amongst other famous supermodels.

Runway Rock n’ Roll

Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane had a more steadfast approach satisfying his guilty rock n’ roll pleasure with a collection full of sexy separates and masculine silhouettes.  The variety of prints used in the collection left the audience guessing with each new outfit that entered the runway.
