The last stop of fashion month is Paris, where designers showcased their creations sprinkled among the historical landmarks and French manicured gardens. The city itself is a source of inspiration for designers and editors, and especially so this fall, as fashion gets back to in-person shows after several seasons of virtual. While vibrant colors and an abundance of skin have been a consistent theme, there was also much talk about what lies beneath. Designers like Nina Ricci and Stella McCartney are looking to the future—way beyond Spring/Summer 2022—by incorporating innovative new vegan fabrics and using clothes to send pertinent messages about climate and ocean preservation. Valentino took their runway to the city streets for everyone to enjoy, while Balenciaga put everyone on display, models and guests alike, via a red carpet and big jumbo screen.
