Paris Fashion Week - Nicolas Andreas Taralis

Opening with a floor sweeping black coat over a near sheer skirt the show got off to a good start, continuing the military-cum-utility style jackets. Tuxedo style jackets were worn over sheer soft knit that had trailing hems, subtle dip dye and sat well under across the body straps and asymmetric jackets. Oriental themes were worked through the show with kimono style sleeves and structured necks made of quilted strips of fabric. The ulitiy themes were obvious with waxed fabrics making up layered capes and flashes of painted metal poppers. Within the collection were androgynous elements including the severe hair styles and drop crotch trousers. Menswear was shown and men wore trench coats, dropped and twisted crotch trousers, buckled at the side and draped artfully. Silver grey appeared in unhemmed light dresses. Scraggly hems were favoured with cotton dripping from sleeve seams and the bottom of dresses finding themselves dirtied on the dusty floor.
The collection mixed the three themes effectively and the collection was consistent and wearable.
