5 Best Spring 2015 Looks Recap of Paris Fashion Week

Oh Paris Fashion Week, what a whirlwind of styles to keep up with. The Spring 2015 Collections have been filling the runways with so many incredible looks, I couldn’t possibly fit separate reviews in for each show. But, I don’t want this collections to go swept under the rug and forgotten (because they are FAB!) so I thought a recap post was in order. Please, let me know how you like this style of post. I’m constantly trying to configure the best way to present runway collections to my Dream in Lace readers. Because I do work full-time, and try to have a bit of a life, the struggle to keep a balance is real! Do you prefer more full reviews, or are overview/recaps better for your schedule too?

Also, if you’re not already, definitely Follow my Pinterest board with the Spring/Summer 2015 Collections. I’m in the habit of pinning while the collections religiously, so you can always find looks there!

I’m really LOVING the variety of looks for Spring 2015 on the Paris runways. There’s literally something for every single day, every single mood, every single event, etc. And being somewhat of a fashion chameleon myself, I love being able to mix things up from day-to-day.

Balmain. I very much respect them, but it’s been a long time since I was excited for a Balmain collection. I always knew what I was going to get with the same styles being shipped down the runway season, after season. In an endless case of deja vu and I gave up on Olivier Rousteing taking the reigns and doing anything new with the brand he inherited. They had their thing and they were sticking do it. I mean, it just so happens their thing was really really great…and garners a lot of props. But, it was still the same old routine every time rehashed again and again, just with a different color. Then, cut to Thursday at Paris Fashion Week when Rousteing removed the veil he was living under, grew a pair and took the brand in a new direction.

Olivia cites his friendship with Rhianna as a bit of a fire lit under his bum. Fine. Whatever it takes I guess? (pfft.) But silly celebrity worship aside, you can’t argue the inherently amazing work put into this collection. It’s strong, It’s fearless. It’s unyielding. Africa and the military are clear sources of influence. And yet, with all the new going on…you can’t help but acknowledge how great the basic design is at sticking to the Balmain formula. It’s a genius blend of new life and tradition that had me saying “Yes! Yes! Yes” with each click of the mouse.
