The return of Paris Haute Couture week marks the revival of fashion’s biggest imaginations. Through hand-beaded gowns, larger-than-life silhouettes and even a horse trotting down the Chanel runway, Paris’ most talented designers are giving us a first glimpse at the creations we’re sure to see grace red carpets and celebrity photoshoots alike in the coming year. There are 15 collections showing at this year’s Haute Couture week, including in-person presentations from Dior, Fendi, Maison Alaïa and Schiaparelli —a strong increase from last year’s virtual shows due to pandemic precautions. haute couture presentations are usually more formal than the ready-to-wear shows, and photos of the dreamy Paris street style certainly reflect that.
Models, editors and TikTokers alike could all agree on one street style trend this season: a trench coat is non-negotiable. Long or short, classic or colorful, all forms of trench coats were seen on the streets of Paris. The trend was heavily featured in the menswear runway shows over the past month, and is expected to continue throughout the upcoming February fashion month.
Another menswear trend quickly taking over Couture week on the runway and through street style is a vibrant shade of red. Daring red was bound to be the next-in-line viral hue after Bottega Veneta pushed bright orange and Kelly green to the forefront of popularity last season with the release of colorful pouches. It’s only a matter of time until our wardrobes are all red hot.
In the twilight zone of idealistic post-pandemic dressing and variant surges, the fashion world has found solace in cheerful color combinations and an “anything goes” attitude. Sky-high platform heels, feather trim and neon accents are some of the biggest trends to join in on the haute couture fun. Luckily, this makes for easy dopamine scrolling through cheerful street style images. Enjoy.
