Chanel - Goodbye Karl

There were tears on the catwalk as the absence of Karl Lagerfeld was truly felt at the last show he ever designed for Chanel. Starting out the show with a moment in silence in his honor, some of his past brand muses took the runway to pay tribute to the visionary. Cara Delevingne opened the show, followed by brand ambassador Penelope Cruz as well as other models who he had a personal relationship with. As far as the clothing, the collection showed the sophistication and chicness that Karl strived for, showing how après-ski attire should be done.

Valentino - On Love

Pierpaolo Piccioli's described his ready to wear Valentino collection as "a gesture of life where couture and poetry come together." Taking inspiration from his haute couture show, he collaborated with four different contemporary poets to create street poetry, saying he wants to move away from what’s safe and into more street wear as well as daywear. This became called Valentino on Love and was transcribed into his beautiful silhouettes.

Isabel Marant - One cool customer 

It's the coolest of cool, and season after season Marant defines her brands style in a way every girl wishes they could nail half as well as she does. Her collection showed a clean palette of colours ranging from hue's of nudes, blushes and greys from boots to jumpers. Keeping her looks monochromatic, she said she went back to her original classics such as the slouchy boot and aviator jacket and of course, it wouldn't be a Marant show without the perfect mini dress.

Givenchy - All about Clare

Clare Waight Keller has created a household name for herself within the past year. First for being the creative director of one of the biggest fashion houses, Givenchy and second for designing Meghan's wedding gown. Her runway shows continue to help pave the way for her. With oodles of colour and creating new silhouettes such as four different shoulder looks throughout her collection that we'll be sure to be trickling down to the high street. From puff shoulders, to balloon sleeves, to cropped and wide openings to classic and clean - this collection had something for everyone.

Celine - The New Sloane Ranger

It was almost too good to be true, Hedi Slimane presented his second collection for Celine leaving everyone shocked. Perhaps its because he's currently living in Mayfair London, and possibly steaming from the pushback from his last collection looking to' "Saint Laurent" we saw a huge transformation in the clothing. With the effect of the old Sloane Ranger effect sprinkled throughout his collection, we hope the effect London has had on him continues.
