New York, London, Milan and Paris have hosted fashion weeks this year. Although Paris Fashion week took place in the middle of a Pandemic, the collections exuded hope and inspiration in a time when it is needed the most. Designers mostly showed their collections online, with approximately twenty physical runway shows in Paris. Here at Style Theory we have the latest trends from Paris Fashion Week available to rent from our designers including: Rebecca Vallance, Zimmermann, Misha Collection, Manning Cartell and more.
Trend One: Butter Yellow
Spring has sprung and so has the latest trend colour of the season - Butter Yellow.
This soft pastel colour has featured heavily across the Paris runways shows from designers including: Givenchy, Altuzarra, and Chloé. Flattering and easy to wear this tone of yellow is a new take on the winter neutrals we are leaving behind. Butter Yellow allows even the most minimalist lover to inject some colour into their wardrobe. This soft, buttery colour is available at Style Theory with the Harlow Mini Dress from Misha Collection. This dress is crafted from bonded crepe featuring detachable straps and side draping creating a flattering silhouette. This colour works seamlessly with white, black or beige accessories.
Trend Two: ‘80s Revival
Paris Fashion Week confirmed that ‘80s fashion is back! The 1980s were a decade of bold colours, styles and silhouettes.This trend featured heavily through design houses Schiaperelli, Balmain and Isabel Marant, embracing the more-is-more attitude of the ‘80s. Designers offered big shoulders on mini party dresses reminiscent of the era.
For those wanting to embrace this trend consider adding a little volume to your sleeves and bold colours with these Style Theory dresses available to rent. Dare to stand out in the Manning Cartell Surround Sound dress. Crafted from a lightweight, snake impression fabric, this dress is a real showstopper with its asymmetrical one-sleeve design and revealing circular cut out. It’s cut to a maxi length with ruched detail at the left side. Let it pop by teaming it with tonal heels and accessories. Another ‘80s trend dress available is the Alex Perry Pierce Dress. A tailored mini featuring structured shoulders, long sleeves, turtleneck, a ruched skirt and a whole lot of attitude.
Trend Three: Embellishment and Metallic
This year has seen most people dressing in comfortable and comforting clothing. If we have learnt anything from Paris fashion week it’s that there is a movement away from recent lounge dressing. There was an abundance of embellishment and metallic featured throughout Paris Fashion week. With designers wanting to breathe some life back into your wardrobe. Acne Studios and Paco Rabanne were two of the biggest designers featuring this trend. At Style Theory we have a range of sequin dresses ready to rent. Make a statement this season with Rebecca Vallance’s Roxbury Long Sleeve Midi dress, embellished with sequins and featuring a plunging neckline and voluminous long sleeves. The relaxed silhouette is accentuated with a black velvet belt to cinch in the waist, a timeless go to party piece. Accessories with black accessories. Another statement alternative for you is the Maxie Dress from Misha Collection. Crafted from beaded sequins which features a cowl neckline and low cowl back. The Maxie Dress available in Lilac and Champagne.
Trend Four: Cut Outs
Cutouts have been a trend in dressing that does not seem to be going away anytime soon. Showing a little skin always makes an outfit a little more exciting. Gabriela Hearst, Hermès and Kenzo were the designers of Paris Fashion Week leading the way with this trend. We are big fans of this trend at Style Theory and offer a range of dresses featuring cutouts. The Reba Midi Dress from Bec & Bridge features cutouts at the waist and back, boat neckline and leg split making it one of our favourites. Looking for a more subtle cut out feature? Bec & Bridges Chichi Long Sleeve knit mini dress is a great alternative.
