Talk about winter fashion and inevitably, jackets, knitwear and fur come to mind. At the recent Paris Fashion Week, all these winter essentials were showcased with a refreshing spin, adding the “extra” to extraordinary.
Warm & Fuzzy & Bright
Out goes the winter gloom, and in comes bright, cheery colours to take the weight off rich and heavy wintry materials such as fur, as Dries Van Noten (left) and Celine have demonstrated.
If knitwear makes you think of that sweater granny made you, think again. Because the 2012 take on knit is all fun, edgy and preppy chic as A F Vandervorst (left) and Cacharel have shown on their runways.
Big On Coats
Trench coats and jackets are a staple on the Autumn/Winter runways, but this year, they come in bold colours and exaggerated sizes. We are loving the drama both Chloé (left) and Comme des Garçons bring to a cold winter’s day.
