Jean Paul Gaultier created schoolgirl-style pieces for its Pre-Fall 14 collection.
The fashion designer’s eponymous label appeared to take inspiration from the Mod look for its latest offering. This style was made popular in the early 1960s and is defined as a young person with a smart stylish appearance, who likes riding motor scooters and listening to soul music.
A majority of the collection was made up of outerwear such as a zipped bomber jacket, a military-inspired parka jackets and peacoats. Gaultier opted to use warm colours for his range and the different shades of brown, plum and bronze gave it an autumnal feel.
Other pieces which stood out included a pair of dark green leather trousers with a textured finish and a pair of high-waisted tailored maroon trousers.
Lanvin has also unveiled its Pre-Fall 14 line and gave a preview in Paris.
Creative director Alber Elbaz’s range is made up of daywear, but he made clear to WWD that the pieces aren’t “conventional”.
Aiming to bring “fun back to fashion” the line features pieces such as striped jogging pants worn with a matching jacket and similar coloured hat, as well as an over-sized navy coat with a bow to fasten.
Elbaz has previously spoken about wanting people to feel “beautiful and comfortable” when they wear his Lavin pieces. He also explained how the two go hand-in-hand,
“I feel more and more that the most beautiful people are the ones who are comfortable with themselves. You can be a young fashionista in all the latest trends but if you’re not comfortable with yourself, it shows,” he explained. “Or you can be a bit bigger, a bit older, a bit shorter, but if you feel comfortable in life and life is smiling at you then you become beautiful.”
