From puff sleeves to beekeeper’s hats, these are the trends for this spring as spotted at Paris Fashion Week | Style | Nina


In September it was ‘fashion month’ again: a month in which all well-known designers show their collections for the coming seasons in major world cities. The New York Fashion Week kicked off, followed by London and Milan. The saying goes: save the best for last. That’s why Paris is saved every year as a dessert, to end the fashion month with a bang. This year was no different. Take a look behind the scenes of Paris Fashion Week and discover which trends may soon be hanging in your wardrobe.

The pandemic may have thrown a spanner in the works, but fashion month has just continued. Different, but no less glamorous. On the catwalk we saw eccentric color explosions for a week, alternated with gloomy, dark outfits that reflect the atmosphere of recent months well. And there were some notable new trends too.

Big shoulders

Perhaps the biggest trend on fashion week was the ‘big shoulders’. Several major fashion houses, including Balenciaga, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Isabel Marant, put their shoulders to this new trend, originating from the 1930s. Then designers like the Italian used Elsa Schiaparelli shoulder pads and puff sleeves, so that women would feel confident and powerful. And that fashion statement is still relevant today. Some kept the puffy shoulders subtle, like Chanel. While Rick Owens and Patou, among others, went completely over the top.
