The paris fashion week has just ended. now it’s time to review and reflect on the highlights of this spring/summer 2020 season. environmental issues have been at the heart of concerns of this fashion week. it’s an awareness that is at the centre of worries for brand labels, some of which have chosen to display outside, even taking the risk of parading in the rain.this is the case of marine serre, who opened the festivities with a collection called “oil slick”. since the beginning, this young designer has been committed to a more sustainable fashion, presenting upcycled clothes this season in a dark atmosphere and surrounded by nature. dior tackles eco-responsibility in a natural garden consisting of over 160 trees to be replanted. stella mccartney, another great figure and pioneer of ethical fashion, has delivered, this season, her most sustainable collection which was applauded by vivienne westwood and her new partner lvmh. givenchy has used upcycled faded denim to design a series of shorts, skirts and jeans, just like thom browne who devised a modern-day marie antoinette with scrap fabric.optimism was also established, through vibrant and pop colours, just like the eccentricity that manifests itself by volumes outside the norm and work with proportions. the event of the week was dries van noten’s collection, co-signed with the master of colour, christian lacroix. a collaboration worthy of a standing ovation, which also created a wave of nostalgia and emotion. colours and volumes were treated with sophistication with valentino but also with balenciaga and in a more glacial and pop atmosphere with balmain. another moment of happiness was the first work of the designer satoshi kondo, who remained faithful to the dna of the fashion house issey miyake. celine, another eagerly awaited show, continued to explore neo-bourgeois for the summer, brought up to date by hedi slimane in a seventies style.saint laurent offered a magnificent show at the foot of the eiffel tower, with plays with lights, celebrities, and a dream casting for an irresistible, sensual and feminine fashion. a season that focuses on the return of the basics and on clothes, emphasising hermes’s expertise and work on pleated leather this season. or chanel who, under the leadership of virginie viard, presents a new vibe to the ready-to-wear collection on the rooftops of paris, with a rejuvenated tweed that gives rise to desirable playsuits or short skirts.louis vuitton closed with a grand finale this week with a giant screen showing the performance of the transgender singer sophie and slender, young and visionary silhouettes.
