On Wednesday (27Feb19) morning, Bruno Sialelli ushered in a fresh era at Lanvin at Paris Fashion Week.

The designer showed off his debut collection for the troubled brand, after joining Lanvin in January from his post at Loewe.

Showing off his artistic flair with cute cartoon drawings, pencil portraits and fox motifs, Sialelli brought the wow factor back to the brand – helped by the inclusion of superstar models Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber.

Feminine silhouettes worked well alongside chunky knits and sheer fabrics, with a romantic elegance seen across the entire Fall/Winter 19 collection.

Stand out moments in the co-ed show included knitted corset detailing on a butter yellow trouser suit, a peach velvet men’s suit with a daisy drawing printed onto the front, and swishy scarf material seen on oversized shirts, dresses and skirts.

Ninety minutes later, Mugler showed in the City of Lights.

Structured and sexy tailoring, funky leather and sexy high-shine thigh-high booties made their way down the catwalk.

The modest collection was a world away from the headline-grabbing vintage Thierry Mugler garment Kim Kardashian recently squeezed into. Skin was covered in a patchwork prints, including animal, marbled monochrome and psychedelic swirls.

Jackets were nipped in at the waist, with a white blazer featuring slightly too long sleeves, and a black version adding an extra dimension with a ruffled peplum.

Later on Wednesday, Rochas, Lemaire, and Kenzo will take centre stage.
