FASHION IN PARIS: A FESTIVAL OF COLORS FOR FALL/WINTER 2018. INTERVIEW SYLVIE SIGURET

Parisians have the distinguishing feature of following the trends while maintaining a certain freedom. Their secret: mix basics with ultra trendy items, play with colors.  This winter, Parisians will brighten the streets of Paris because colors and prints are in the spotlight. Black no longer has the lead even though it remains a timeless, elegance in any circumstance.

A bright and pop palette of colors will invade the closets and look great! Decoding...

color-giallocolor-beigeOn the program, there is first, yellow. Seen on the catwalks of Dries Van Noten, yellow will illuminate wardrobes. We find it a lot in the winter pants and curvy suits.

Then, there is the color fawn. It sublimated the processions of Chloe and Isabel Marant. In a long coat or pencil skirt, it is the hue to combine in small touches for a total beige look, also a "must-have" of the season!

However, it is purple, ultraviolet, or lilac that is the star color of new collections. It can be played out in a total Purple Rain look with a trendy velvet suit like from Pallas, or in a softer version with a long dress from Gucci. Lilac itself is always sublime in filmy blouse.

Khaki has joined the catwalk's main trends of fall/winter. In total-look or small touches, the shades of green seduce us as the cold weather approaches.

Not always easy to combine colors? Sophie la Parigina's advice: basic shades (burgundy, navy, chocolate, dark gray, khaki, denim blue) blend perfectly with soft colors (powder pink, sand, sky blue, soft yellow) or intense colors (grass green, ultraviolet, yellow).

Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.
