Paris Fashion Week is behind us but I wanted to share with you my ‘Manish Arora’s experience’ for upcoming Spring-Summer trends.
“Athletic sportswear meets the independent female spirit of the roaring twenties. Drop-waisted flapper silhouettes are re-imagined in sporty jersey and french terry in a juicy palette of banana yellow, sherbert pink, fuschia and mint green; updating the original party girls of the Charleston era for the 21st century.”
Art deco accents punctuate the collection from fruit-adorned jewellery recalling Josephine Baker’s bananas to psychedelic prints on waterproof parkas. Armfuls of fluorescent bead bangles transport us, paired with club kid backpacks, to childhood. We also noticed textured sequin sweatshirts, embroidered borders and sporty shoelaces – that appear on the debut collection of Manish Arora’s shoes – complete with signature pink heart sole.
Meanwhile here are some of our picks from this collection and some pictures of the pop-up store…also feel free to leave a comment, feedback, or your personal favorite below.
Manish Arora has also opened a pop-up store in Paris with his Ready to Wear collection but also home furnishing, bags, jewelry, paintings…(lust item: the carpet ) and we totally dig his style so if you are around, check it out until the 30th of November 2013.
