Trending: 50 Shades of Blue in Paris

Mar 18, 2014


The adage goes: if you see it in two collections it’s a coincidence; three is a trend. For spring 2013 designers pulled out a sea of blue – Yves Klein, cerulean, electric and navy in the cases of Lanvin, Dior Homme, Kenzo and Valentino. Brands like Berluti opted for smart suiting with sharp pocket squares and accompanying bowties all doused in the hue for both classic and contemporary looks.

Some looks came clean, particularly in the case of Lanvin where a suit came down unmarred by tie or button, placing emphasis on line and silhouette. Others were spot on with a touch of fuss, like a three-piece suit with a silk scarf from Berluti and a full-length overcoat, belted with a gold embroidered floral print to match metallic buttons, all from Dries van Noten.

Check out some of our favorite blue looks from Paris Fashion Week.
