Paris Fashion Week is in full force with Chloé’s Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear Collection hitting the runway yesterday. Creative Director Ramsay-Levi’s vision for this show was to pull from Chloé looks throughout the entire history of the house and use a little bit from all of her predecessors. Besides the bohemianism and pattern work, the show taught us one crucial lesson: bangs are here to stay and work with LITERALLY every hair type. So put your excuses aside and fringe up because it’s bang season in the fashion world.
Paging through the September 2016 issue of W searching for content that wasn’t an advertisement, I kept catching images of buoyant clouds of curls in the ad campaigns. While I may be sick of the clothes from months of analyzing them on runway, I’m not sick of seeing natural hair texture, waves and curls across the glossies. In Louis Vuitton, Natalie Westling’s signature flamed tendrils appear in gorgeous ringlets. Frederikke Sofie‘s blonde and soft ethereal crowning curls appear in both Chloé and Etro, setting the standard for bohemian beauties everywhere. Heather Kemesky and Jourdan Dunn wore dark wavy bobs and Selena Forrest’s spirals took on a grungy appeal in DKNY. Looks like curls will shape how beauty complements fashion for another season. I’m optimistic that this celebration of curls is more than just a trend, and is now a true classic. Click through to the notes to see my favorite campaigns. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
We bestow to the French their je ne sais quoi. Their bulldogs, their croissants, and their spirit of Brigitte Bardot comes with a natural and undone beauty that drives us American working girls mad. French women, French beauty make it all seem effortless. You’ll never find a French woman spending hours primping and coiffing in front of a mirror (so they tell us). Speaking of the quintessentially French, Caroline de Maigret, model, muse, and new beauty guru recently launched a charming new book, How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, along with three other French archetypes, Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, and Sophie Mas. The book covers everything one needs to tap into their inner French cool girl, including things that French women would never do to their hair.
